WESTSIDE ORCHESTRA FESTIVAL CANCELLED

Due to the domino effect of last week’s  snow closures, the Westside Orchestra Festival is cancelled, even IF school is open.  Look for this to be rescheduled.

BOXTOPS FOR EDUCATION

Simply collect, clip and turn in BOXTOPS for Education to your school. You can find the coupons on many products we use in our home like cereal boxes, Go-Gurt, Yoplait, cleaning supplies, Ziplock and more (see btfe.com for a complete list of products). Every 10 cent coupon helps. Please submit your box tops by February 20th so that we can meet the deadline for November March 1st. You can find the collection sheet in your child's school mail. But please Keep collecting and sending in the Box Tops for Education after the deadline too because we collect them all year.  You’d be amazed at how they add up and fund lots of great recess and P.E. equipment. We collected around 400$ last time we submitted the box tops.

Boxtops can also be sent in baggies or envelopes, but they do expire, so cut them out and send them in. Thanks for helping your kids in school.

FEBRUARY ITEM OF THE MONTH: TOOTHPASTE AND TOOTHBRUSHES

Bring them in to donate them to “The Works” and help our families in need.  February is Dental Health Awareness month. Remind your kids to love their teeth!

Make Your Voice Heard! Focus Day and Advocacy Week

Participate in Focus Day:  February 11th is Focus Day! On Monday, February 11th, Shoreline School District PTA members will be heading to Olympia for the annual Focus Day to talk with our representatives about WSPTA's legislative priorities. We'd love a big showing of people from our district! This is a great opportunity to see the capitol building and meet your representatives.  Click here to learn more about attending Focus Day.

Take the District Survey: If you can't make it to focus day, you can still make your voice heard. Our PTA District Legislative Chair created a great online survey for you to share how decisions and policies made at the state level impact your family personally. Please click here https://www.wastatepta.org/events-programs/focus-day/ to complete this survey and share your experiences, so we can share them with our representatives in Olympia! Your responses can remain anonymous.

Follow Legislative Tracking: WSPTA will be tracking all PTA-related legislation through the session. Subscribe to their Action Network to receive updates, click here https://actionnetwork.org/forms/subscribe-to-wsptas-action-network-group.
