If you missed picture day, no worries! You have another opportunity to have your child’s portrait taken. Order envelopes are in the office. Just fill out the order, enclose a check and have your child bring it to school on or before Monday, Nov. 23. Also, if you are unhappy with the photo your child took earlier, bring in your envelope with those pictures and a new one will be taken and a new package printed for you. Retakes are scheduled for first thing in the morning.
SYRE HOLIDAY HELPERS
Sign up at Volunteer Spot at: http://vols.pt/bj7fdG to purchase specific items families have requested assistance with this holiday season. There are also gift cards listed to help families with additional food over the long break. Please bring in the items, wrapped if possible with the family number on each item to Kim Kauffman, Family Advocate, by Friday December 11th.
ADULT PATROL VOLUNTEER(S) NEEDED!
After several years of service in the rain, sleet, and hail, Mr. Chris Watson can no longer help supervise students and families coming and going from school. Can you?
Time: 8:45–9:05AM and/or 3:25-3:40PM
Duties: help manage buses arriving, families crossing, and cars coming/going from the north bus loop on 12th Avenue Northwest.
Please contact the Syre Safety Patrol Supervisors, Mrs. Hodgen or Mrs. Fredrickson, if you can help.
Thank you, Mr. Watson, we appreciate all that you’ve done to keep us safe!
HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE
The Syre PTA Food Drive will start November 30th and run through December 11th this year. Our focus item is granola bars!! Other than granola bars, most wanted food items include:
peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, cereal (hot or cold), canned soup, pasta & rice, canned meats, ramen noodles, shelf stable milk, canned fruit/veggies, and canned tomato products.
We will also need your help collecting boxes! Please help us out by collecting boxes from your workplace, grocery store, etc and bringing them to the Syre office.
As part of the Holiday Baskets/food drive, the PTA will also help collect gift cards for teens & tweens ages 10-18. Gift cards make it possible for kids to shop for exactly what they want! The goal is to provide at least one gift card for each teen. Last year we provided for over 500 kids! $15-25 dollar amounts work best. Ask a teen what gift cards are popular this year!
In addition to donating a gift card directly, you may also help via monetary contributions: please make checks payable to Shoreline PTA Council 6.12 (note: “Holiday Baskets – Teen Gifts”) and mail to: Shoreline PTA Council 6.12 Attn: Holiday Baskets – Teen Gifts, PO Box 55832 Shoreline, WA 98155.
Or, donate via Paypal! Go to: www.shorelinepta.com and click on Holiday Baskets. Your donations to the Shoreline PTA Council, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, are tax deductible.
Thank you in advance for making our food drive/teen gift card drive a success! Go, Wildcats!
Chinook Books are still available in the office. They will also be for sale at the spaghetti dinner on Nov. 18. Help raise money for Syre and save money with a great family friendly coupon book!
