About Our School
B.F. Day has a long and proud history of educating children in Seattle. We are the oldest, continually operating school in the city. Our building is a designated historic landmark having undergone state-of-the-art renovation in 1991.
B.F. Day has an outstanding record of parent and community participation in school governance and support. We have an active Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), which supports the many special programs offered to our students. A Volunteer Coordinator helps place parent and community volunteers in classrooms, the library and tutoring programs. In 1996, B.F. Day instituted a Parent/Teacher/Student contract signed by all teachers and families attending the school. Parents make a commitment to volunteer a minimum of 15 hours per family to support the school. Eighty percent of all B.F. Day families currently fulfill this commitment.
B.F. Day has a long-term relationship with the Fremont Arts Council, which provides volunteer involvement for school art projects. The Fremont Chamber of Commerce partners with the school for annual fundraising activities.
