Einstein Stands Up to Bullying

Last week all Einstein students engaged with their 1st period classes and teachers to find ways to cultivate kindness and eliminate bullying at our school. Click here to see the powerpoint presentation that was used to lead the lessons. There are some great video clips included, and the whole thing provides a perfect opportunity for discussions with your student.
If you have any questions or would like any additional resources about this topic, please feel free to contact our counseling staff: Kelly Flatters (8th grade) and Lauren Lochner Paulhamus (7th grade).

IMPORTANT XC INFORMATION!

Cross Country has a meet at Harbour Pointe this afternoon (Wednesday, 10/8). The meet is scheduled to begin at 4 pm and athletes will return to school on the bus sometime between 5 and 6 pm. Please be ready to pick them up when they get back to campus. We ask our athletes to call or text their parents on our return bus ride. Coaches can call if students do not have a phone or are not able to borrow one from a fellow athlete.

Away meet transportation policy:
Students ride the bus home unless they go home with their own parent or guardian, who signs out directly with the coach (Coach Glasser for girls, Coach Maschman for boys)
Once back at campus, students are welcome to walk home or get a ride with other families and friends
Parents, please make sure your student has a ride or way home arranged – we ask athletes to contact parents on the way home to give them an idea as to when we will be back

ASB Fundraiser!

Hi, everyone. This is Thelonious Fox, Einstein’s ASB President. I want to make sure you’re all aware of our annual ASB Fundraiser. Each year our ASB sponsors a ton of clubs, welcomes 7th graders through WEB, pays for sports officials, purchases athletic uniforms, sponsors Campus Day, and also helps to pay for the activity bus so kids have a way home after clubs and practices.

Your student should be bringing home a flyer and a letter explaining the fundraiser. We have a goal of raising $14,000 through a letter campaign. Basically, we’re asking every family to send the letter to people who would like to support Einstein activities. If every student at Einstein raises $20 or more, we’ll reach our goal!

Please talk with your student about the fundraiser. The letter will also be coming in an email blast from Einstein administrators.

Thanks again for supporting all Einstein kids. We’re lucky to go to school in such a great community.

Click here to see a copy of the letter. Thank you for your support!

Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey

Our district is participating in the Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey during the week of October 13th – 17th.

The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.

Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
