Popular mascot visits Columbia

The gymnasium at Columbia Elementary was filled with excitement as the students welcomed Blitz, the Seattle Seahawks mascot, and Sea Gal Kylie. The duo made a special appearance to congratulate the students for achieving a touchdown in “Fuel Up to Play 60,” an in-school nutrition and physical activity program organized by the National Dairy Council and the NFL, and promoted by the Seattle Seahawks. Columbia also was awarded a $500 check for winning the Fuel Up to Play 60 Challenge, a national contest where students record their physical activity for one month. Columbia finished in the top 10 nationally and finished in first place for the Seahawk teams.


Lights and sirens at Kamiak tomorrow

Don’t be alarmed if you see fire and police units converge at Kamiak Thursday around 9:30 a.m. The emergency lights and sirens will be part of the annual DUI Mock Car Crash that will take place in a parking lot at the school. The event depicts the real-life drama of a fatal car accident, complete with smashed cars, injured passengers that must be rescued and treated by first responders, and the arrest of the driver who caused it all. The Mock Car Crash is held each year a couple of days before the school’s prom.
