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.

Cougar Mountain Cookie Dough

Support the Syre 5th and 6th grade camp fund by purchasing Cougar Mountain Cookie Dough between February 4th - February 25th.  All cookie dough flavors are packed in 3 lb tubs and cost $17 per tub. Syre will keep 50% of the proceeds. Cookie dough flavors include: Original Chocolate Chunk, Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon, Double Chocolate Oregon Hazelnut, Classic Peanut Butter, Chewy Molasses-Ginger, Lemon Cheesecake, All-Butter Rolled Sugar, and Ballpark. Although some dough flavors do not contain nuts, all cookies are made on shared equipment. Cougar Mountain cookie dough can be stored in the refrigerator for two months and the freezer for twelve months.

 We ask that all students return their completed order forms, cash, and checks to their teachers no later than Tuesday, February 25th.  Checks should be made out to “Syre Elementary.” We will have the cookie dough delivered to Syre on Thursday, March 12th at which time we will need students and parents to pick up their cookie dough orders between 3:00 – 4:00pm. We do not have space to store cookie dough overnight, so please mark this date on your calendars.

 Let’s have fun with this event and make some “dough” for Syre’s 5th & 6th grade camps!!!

 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dani VonGunten at or 206.412.911,  or Kristi Brueck at or 206.992.3880.  Thanks for your support!

PTA Family Game Night

February 7th, 6:30pm - 8pm

PTA Nominating Committee

PTA members, please keep an eye on your email inbox the first week of February. The PTA will be sending out an email to current Syre PTA members so you can vote on/submit Nominating Committee candidates.

Box Tops for Education

The BoxTop Program has become digital now with their mobile app. When you buy products from the store, simply scan your receipt using the Box Top app and cash will be added to the school account. You have to scan the receipt within 14 days of purchase. 

Each Box Tops clip is worth 10 cents for the school. You can find the Boxtop label on many products like cereal boxes, Go-Gurt, Yoplait, Cleaning Supplies, Ziplocks and More (see for a complete list of products). You will be amazed at how they add up and fund lots of great recess and PE equipment for the kids.

If you have any questions, please feel to contact me at   my email
