Did you know that a birdbath can attract many species of birds during our summer dry periods? When we have stretches of dry weather, you can support the birds of your area by keeping a well-maintained birdbath in your yard. To keep your birdbath fresh, just rinse and scrub it with nine parts water, one part vinegar. Skip the synthetic soaps and cleansers; they can strip the essential oils off of bird feathers and make sure to refill the water every other day to keep it from bugging up.

CONGRATULATIONS to all Highline Public Schools grads!!! Many of us couldn't join you, but were there with you in spirit. Watch their unique celebrations throughout the district and cheer them on their new path!

Highline Public Schools
It was not the graduation celebration the Class of 2020 always thought it would have. There was no big stage to walk across, no bleachers packed with cheering family and friends, no hugs or high-fives shared between graduates.

But even without the typical pomp and circumstance, the heart of the celebration remained. Graduates stood tall with confidence as they received their diplomas. Families cheered from their cars, waving signs, honking horns and crying with excitement. Teachers and staff burst with pride as they waved goodbye to graduates one final time.

The Class of 2020 is unique and united, tested by a global health crisis, built with resilience, passion, strength and hope. It's what led them to this milestone and what will continue to lead them into their future.

Congratulations, graduates. We couldn't more proud to know that you are our future.
