This fall, Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services staff will be working with the Pacific Northwest Ballet to expand the Dance to Learn program into four Burien schools.
From June 6 to June 8, students from different middle schools rotated through five hands-on lessons about stormwater and water quality taught by community volunteers, bilingual station educators, and environmental professionals.
The programs are run by recreation leaders hired by the City of Burien who have experience working with youth in a recreation setting. Many of the recreation leaders were participants in the same afterschool programs when they were students.
