Three Tacoma charter schools that plan to open this fall will host a block party festival from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday March 14 at Bethlehem Baptist Church, 4818 E. Portland Ave., Tacoma.
The event, also sponsored by World Vision, will include free food, prizes and kids’ activities, as well as information about the three schools. All three have initial application periods closing soon.
The three charters are:
SOAR’s initial application period closes Sunday March 15. The school is located at 2136 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, in the Hilltop neighborhood.
Green Dot plans to occupy the former Rogers Elementary School at 1301 E. 34th St., on Tacoma’s East Side. The Tacoma School District closed the school in 2002, and sold it to a church, which subsequently sold it to a Mercer Island investor.
Summit’s initial application period closes Friday March 13.
