Nickelsville

Dear Children School Families:

I am writing to you tonight on behalf of Sallie McArthur and The Children's School -- to inform you that the University Congregational UCC membership voted today (Sunday, Nov. 30th) to allow the homeless community, known as Nickelsville, currently residing in the parking lot of University Christian Church at the SE corner of 15th Ave. NE and NE 50th Street, to a parking lot owned by the congregation of UCUCC (Lot A). This move will take place some time in the next week. Should you come to school this coming week with questions about this community, we will have some initial information available for you. We also understand that it may be beneficial to our school community to have a chance to discuss this together, and we, as a staff, are committed to providing that opportunity, via a Parent Lunch Bunch, sometime in the next couple of weeks.
In the meantime, if you would like to explore additional information about Nickelsville on your own, here is the Nickelsville, website:
and here is the website for University Christian, where their experience with this community is discussed in their newsletter, The Visitor:

See you at school!

Sincerely,
Lisa Coleman
Administrator
The Children's School
