    Girls empowerment program coming this spring – registration open

    The PNA is excited to partner with Girls on the Run is this spring to bring their program to the Phinney Center.  Girls on the Run is a girl empowerment program that teaches girls important life skills while creatively integrating running and walking. This program is 10-weeks long and is for 3rd-5th grade students that identify as female. It culminates in a celebratory, non-competitive 5K (3.1 miles) run/walk. Last summer, PNA hosted the Girls on the Run summer camp and we were impressed by the mission and the vision of the organization and the outcomes the program has shown for preteen girls. So, we're enthusiastic to continue to offer the program in our community! Registration is now open; if more than 15 girls apply by Jan. 24, random lottery will be used to select the 15 girls for the team.

  • Kids serve up community soup

    Kids serve up community soup

    The North Seattle 5’s, a co-op preschool housed in St. John’s Lutheran Church, recently asked the PNA if they could host a food drive for the Hot Meal Program. The school was very enthusiastic about the food drive and interested in helping the kids understand how the food connected back to the diners served on a weekly basis. The Hot Meal Program decided to have the kids make a giant pot of “community soup” for the evening’s dinner at the kitchen, also at St. John’s Lutheran Church. The kids arrived eager to chop vegetables, add spices and create! After chopping veggies, each preschooler put their individual ingredients into one giant pot and all stirred together with a wooden ladle that has been part of the kitchen for over 20 years....
