Day of remembrance: Washington CeaseFire is holding its annual Day of Remembrance for people affected by gun violence in the past year. Daffodil bulbs and tools will be provided for those who want to continue the tradition of planting daffodils as a memorial to those who have died because of gun violence.  The organization says that more than 4,000 bulbs have been planted since 1992. The event starts at 11 a.m. today at the Green Lake boat rental on the northeast side of the lake.

No Seahawks today: Fans will have to wait a day to see the 6-1 Seahawks as they play in St. Louis on Monday Night Football. That game starts at 5:40 p.m. There might not have been a game at all — or a season or even an NFL team in Seattle after 1996. Read all about how the Seahawks were almost lost to the city.

Get educated: A year-long series and blog starts today in The Seattle Times examining promising approaches to some of the most persistent challenges in public education. Today’s story takes us to White Center Heights Elementary where every grade achieved an improvement in test results from the previous year. Have a look at how this happened. The series is accompanied by a blog. To learn more about the project, see Editor Kathy Best’s column today.

Better weather: It’s coming: The forecast for Monday and Tuesday calls for sun with temperatures in the mid 50s.
