Sunset Hill Community Club
Our February 12 meeting will feature a presentation on the re-opening of Webster School, at NW 67th St and 30th Ave NW. Licton Springs K-8 school will be moving from its shared space at Robert Eagle Staff Middle School (N 90th Street and Stone Ave N) to this revitalized and expanded Sunset Hill location, formerly occupied by the Nordic Museum. Licton Springs is an option school that focuses on Native American culture and history.
We’ll be joined by the project manager, project architect, school principal and Seattle School Board member Eden Mack. See agenda below.
Please help spread the word to other community members. Join us for an informative evening about this exciting change in the Sunset Hill neighborhood.

Webster School was built in 1908 and housed an elementary school through 1979. In the 1980s, the Nordic Heritage Museum leased the space and remodeled it to accommodate its exhibits. The museum moved in 2018, and the district is currently modernizing the building to turn it back into a school.
