Dear Echo Lake Families,
It’s August! Along with enjoying hot weather and summer fun, many families also begin to think about the start of the school year. You should be receiving our August mailing soon. This has important information about the beginning of the school year, our school supply list, and much more. Please read more below about ways to connect with our community or get access to support for your school year preparation.
1. Playdates at Echo Lake – Do you have a new Kindergarten or primary student entering Echo Lake this year? Do you have young students that already attend our fantastic school? If so, plan to come out on August 19th from 5-7 to play on the playground and meet other students and families. This is a fun opportunity for all students and parents.
2. Getting Ready for School: Registration for Shoreline’s annual Back to School event ends August 21st. This is an opportunity for families that may need extra support in getting their students prepared for school. There are also many opportunities to donate or volunteer. For more information, please click on this link: http://www.btsconsortium.org **Translations of the information are available in many languages.**
3. Save the Date: The Echo Lake staff and PTA will be hosting our annual back to school Open House and PTA BBQ on September 8th. All students and their families are invited to meet their teachers from 3-4:00. From 3:30-5:00 the PTA will be hosting a free BBQ out on the playground. Returning to the fun this year is a short beginning of the year Book Fair to support our library. To add to the excitement, the PTA will be hosting carnival games to support the cost of 6th grade camp.
Enjoy the last few weeks of the summer. We are looking forward to seeing everyone soon.
