Friend of the blog and Advertiser West Seattle Montessori and West Seattle Academy have been reaching out to the community each month this school year.

“February marks our Blanket Drive,” says the school’s Tara Requa. “Inspired by Morgan Williams, one of our pre-primary students, and her desire to help the nearby homeless stay warm, WSMS & WSA will be collecting clean (new and used) blankets to help keep those in need stay warm this winter.”

Morgan was recently was on a car ride with her parents when she saw someone as she looked out the window.

“I saw a person in a tent near a tunnel,” Morgan told The B-Town Blog. “And I wondered if they could use a blanket.”

She continued: “Then I wondered if a lot more people could use blankets.”

This week, a collection bin will be located outside the school’s main office for donations from the general public.

“You can give them coats, too!” says Morgan.

“The Burien and Seattle-area community is always welcome to check out our pre-primary through eighth grade programs,” said Tara Requa. “Be sure and let your friends with school-age kids know about us, and to feel free to ask about enrollment.”

The philosophy of the school is “Fostering Independence and Love of Learning.”
