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. The largest rain garden in Seattle Public Schools was installed in the southeast side of the campus in 2009. The west side of our playground was remodeled in 2013. The front and north east side of our campus received a new "plaza" look with permeable pavers, native plantings, and cement seating with space for up to two classrooms in 2015.
B.F. Day has an outstanding record of parent and community participation in school governance and support. We have an amazing Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), which supports the many special programs offered to our students and runs many educational and very fun after school programs. A Volunteer Coordinator helps place parent and community volunteers in classrooms, the library and tutoring programs. Most parents make a commitment to and volunteer in the school. Many family members, from grandparents to aunts and uncles, of all B.F. Day families currently fulfill many volunteer needs.
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. Thank you to our many community donors: Rotary Club of Fremont, Fremont Chamber of Commerce, Fremont Neighborhood Council, City of Seattle, Dept. of Neighborhoods, Marketime Foods, PCC Fremont, Starbucks, QFC Wallingford, Pecado Bueno in Fremont. Windermere Realty, Lakeview displays our student art work and partners with us on an annual Art Walk, June 9 this year. The Windermere Foundation, Secret Garden Bookstore, Family Works, and several other community members help support our needy families.
