Playground Pals Volunteer

Our playground pal program will be starting up again soon. We are looking for a few adult volunteers that could come in consistently during our afternoon recess time 11:30-1:00 M-F March- June.

Volunteers would arrive before recess and gather a few of our special buddy bench games/bins to take outside, set up (and take down) the playground pals poster and items on the table/bench and support students in sharing intentional kindness and increasing a sense of belonging and connection at recess.

If you are interested in helping please contact our counselor, Kim Kauffman (on site Th/F and job sharing with Heather Shickich who is on site M-W) at kim.kauffman@shorelineschools.org and let her know of your availability.  She will send you a link to sign up for volunteer times and go over the routine for volunteers as we team together to support our Playground Pal Team efforts. Thank you for considering sharing your time with our students! 


Math Olympiad

The Math Olympiad Competition will be on Pi Day, 3/14/20 at Shoreline Community College.  

Your child does not have to participate in the weekly MathO to participate in the competition, but they do need to be on a team for the team competition portion.  

Attached is the Parent Information Form and consent form for all current MathO participants and any other interested 4th-6th graders.  These are due back at the office ASAP, but February 6th at the latest.

PTA Family Game Night

February 7th, 6:30pm - 8pm

Grab your family’s favorite (elementary age appropriate) board game and join us for some family fun!  This will be a great opportunity to connect with other families from not only your child’s class, but our entire school.  Hope to see you there!

**Syre PTA will provide some light refreshments but no dinner will be served.
