PTA Festival of Cultures - Cultural Art Walk

Join your fellow Syre families for an evening where we celebrate all Syre families and cultures.  There will be booths with demonstrations, cooking, music, art, and lots more.  

Take a leisurely art walk along the halls of Syre and peer at the beautiful pieces of art created by our very own artists in residence - the students!

You're sure to have fun, eat plenty, see great art and maybe even learn a little something.

If you'd like to share your culture and/or food at the Syre Festival of Cultures, we'd love to have you host a booth or table.  Contact Kiersten Holm at syreptapresident@gmail.com or Megan Lantry at megan.lantry@shorelineschools.org or register at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0A4BAFAF2E5-festival

November Winter Coat Drive

Our winter coat drive still on!  As the weather turns colder THE WORKS always has an increased demand for Winter Coats. We are still collecting any NEW and GENTLY USED coats at the school throughout the month of November. Please consider donating any coats your children have outgrown or no longer use. Thank you in advance for your continued generosity.  The collection bin is in the Syre entryway.

Thanks!

PTA Holiday Food and Teen Gift Drive

It's time for our annual Holiday Food and Teen Gift Drive! The drive will take place December (2nd - 13th).  The Shoreline PTA provides baskets of food to over 650 families within the district and every school is assigned a different item to collect. Syre's focus this year is: FLOUR. If you are able to donate we ask that the bags be the regular size (5 lbs.) and not the Costco sized.   More information will be coming soon with ways you can sign up to help, but it's never too early to start gathering items when you are at the store. 

Here is the link to sign up for helping during the drive or gift card donations.  https://signup.com/go/GzuoqOT

Thanks Wildcats! It's always so wonderful to see how this community comes together to support those in need at this time of year.

Your PTA Community Service Team,

Julia, Sarah, Carolina.


Film Screening on "Twice Exceptional Students"

On behalf of the Shoreline Hi Cap Parent Association and Shoreline Special Needs PTSA and by a generous grant from the Lake Forest Park Rotary, we would like to invite you to an upcoming movie screening which is an inspirational documentary about a school environment that embraces neurodiversity.

Date: Tuesday, December 3, 2019

Time:  7:00-9:00 pm

Location: Shoreline Conference Center, Shoreline Room

18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline, WA 98155

Twice exceptional students (or “2e”) have “a mix of high abilities and special needs – differences such as learning disabilities, attention deficits, and behavioral difficulties” such as autism, Asperger’s, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD. 1 in 5 students are neuro-diverse or differently wired and many struggle to learn in a traditional classroom setting. This might describe your child or students that are learning alongside your student.  

Following the 77-minute movie (with Spanish subtitles), there will be a moderated discussion with the audience. Translators will be available upon request. A summary of this screening and community question/comments will be presented at a future Shoreline School Board meeting.

Please RSVP via https://tinyurl.com/2e2movie to receive a comprehensive viewer’s guide and request translation services before the screening. This is a free event and all families are welcome but no childcare is provided.  

We hope to see you there!
