Welcome Back!

The Olympic Hills PTA is so excited to welcome everyone back to school and into our brand new building! We are looking forward to all the great opportunities our new space will bring. The BEST way to learn more is to come to our first PTA meeting, Thursday, September 28 from 6:30-7:30PM. We always gather for a quick potluck dinner in the half hour before our meeting, so we also welcome you to bring food to share at 6pm before the night’s program begins.At this first meeting we’ll hear from our new principal, Libby DeBell.  We offer free childcare at PTA meetings and Spanish interpreters. EVERYONE IS WELCOME, even if you are not a member!

Come together for Sand Point Elementary and Charleena Lyle

Brisk clap, friends and families of Olympic Hills. It’s time to come together to support a neighbor school and larger community, and we only have 24 hours to help.

Sand Point Elementary PTA is requesting support to create small care packages for their families who are residents of Solid Ground Housing (Brettler) in Magnuson Park whose lives are deeply impacted by the killing of one of their parents, Charleena Lyle.

We hope to make 230 care packages that include:

1) Notes of support for adults and children
2) Grocery gift cards for parents in $10 denominations from Safeway
3) Bottles or packets of bubble bath for children
4) Packets of microwave popcorn
5) Bottles of bubbles or other happy non-age specific item for children. (stickers?)
6) fruit rollups/fruit snacks
7) gift bags/ribbon

Email point person Bronwen Houck (bronwen.houck@gmail.com) for drop off location. Donations are needed by Wednesday morning. You can also PayPal (info@bronwenhouckphoto.com) donations for grocery gift cards and/or supplies.

Last chance to order t-shirts this year

You have one last opportunity this year to order a fresh off the runway, totally original, HAUTE COUTURE Olympic Hills t-shirt or sweatshirt. This is going to look AWESOME with the one pair of track pants your kid wears every day because “pants hurt” and will also coordinate beautifully with your daughter’s rainbow leggings, unicorn t-shirt, and cat ear headband capsule wardrobe.
 
Order forms should come home SOON. If your child insists that he never got it, they will also be available in the front office as well as right here at olympichillspta.org. Please fill out completely with your child’s first AND last name, and Teacher’s Name and room number. The deadline to order school shirts by sending a form with your child will be Monday, March 20 final orders accepted in person at the Science Fair/Potluck on March 23. Delivery will be in mid April.

Guest speakers at December 8 PTA meeting

The Hot Social Event of December is happening Thursday, December 8, in the Cedar Park cafeteria! Join the OH PTA where we’ll hear from the Fostering Together and Children’s Administration organizations. There is a need in our community for short term, emergency living arrangements for students who go to our school. This is something we, OH families, can provide outside of standard foster care. If we can minimize instability for these kids and keep them in their school community, LET’S DO IT.

Also, our very own Eileen Barracoso will introduce RULER and how parents can use the mood meter at home. Brief updates about upcoming PTA events as well.

Thinking these are some pretty interesting topics and you’d sure like to learn more, but wondering how in the world you’ll manage a dinnertime meeting with the kids? We’ve got you covered with our POTLUCK DINNER (5:30-6, please bring a main or side dish to share) and then [gasp] FREE CHILDCARE from 6-7pm during the meeting. Spanish Interpreter provided as well. Hope to see you there!
