    We strive to be a community of lifelong learners who are caring, engaged and responsible in our world.

    Overview

    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.  Our north side big toy was installed with the help of many of our families in August 2017 and was open for school in September 2017.

    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.  Visit our B.F. Day PTSA website for events and updates. 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.

    B.F. Day School Song

    Oh, what do they say about
    B.F. Day?
    They say it's the family school
    Where sharing and caring
    And lending a hand
    We all form a family
    Across the land

    Oh, what do they say about
    B.F. Day?
    Come visit and you will see
    All our smiles go for miles
    You're a friend to the end
    At B.F. Day!
