Santa Barbara Charter School is holding its 25th Year Reunion noon-5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, at Godric Grove in Elings Park. 

The reunion will celebrate the extraordinary efforts of a cadre of families who created this public school that “Cultivates the Arts, Academics, and Relationships.”

The event's theme is Founders Celebration, as it honors four key staff members who have led the school throughout the past 25 years:

Dave Weisman, director of operations; Wendy Kanter, kindergarten teacher and head teacher; Bev Abrams, teacher and long-time director of education; and Linda Cowen, special education teacher and director. 

The reunion also will celebrate the students, families and staff who contributed to creating and sustaining Santa Barbara Charter School.

Alumni and their families, current students and their families, and friends of Santa Barbara Charter School are invited. For more information, visit or phone Laura Donner, 967-6522.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
