The group photo is scheduled to be taken at 5 p.m. outside the school and will be made available widely online following the event. Organizers are expecting 600 to 700 people to attend so arriving early is essential as traffic and parking will be at a premium in the area. The school is located at 3010 59th Ave. SW. The Alki PTA and the Southwest Seattle Historical Society are co-sponsors of the celebration. "This will be an exciting event with activities for the youngest of today's Alki Elementary students as well as for those who attended Alki many decades ago, and all ages in between," said Amy Bannister, Alki PTA chairperson for the event. Once the main photo is taken, others, separated by decade will follow. Then the celebration moves indoors and will officially begin at 6 p.m. A program with several speakers will be presented plus, a wide-ranging audio-visual show of images from the school's history will be shown. Activities for children are planned and an area where attendees can display (and donate) school-related artifacts and have their Alki-related stories captured on video will be in place. Party-style refreshments, including a sheet cake or two denoting the centennial will be provided. All attendees will receive a memento of the occasion.
