WSPTA Legislative Assembly - October 20 - 21, 2017

Our state PTA organization advocates to decision-makers, locally and in Olympia, for the well-being and education of all children. During the annual Legislative Assembly, delegates decide the public policy positions that guide the state and local advocacy work for Washington State PTA and its associated local PTAs and councils. The 2017 Legislative Assembly will be held on October 20-21 at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma. Our PTSA will be sending one or more representatives to cast our PTSA’s votes at the 2017 Legislative Assembly. To guide our delegate(s), we’d love to hear our community’s opinions regarding the 4 new long-term Resolutions and 7 short-term Legislative Issues that will be debated and voted on at Legislative Assembly. Please find details here


 

The Reflections Art Program’s theme for the 2017-2018 year is: “Within Reach.” Students are invited to reflect on the theme, create an original piece of art, and be recognized. To learn a bit more about the Reflections Art Program, please click here.

Fall 2017 Curriculum Enrichment Grants

Each year the PCMS PTSA awards grant money to teachers and staff for curriculum enrichment and student educational support. These grants are made possible from the generous “Pass the Hat” donations the PTSA receives. During the Fall grant cycle, the PTSA approved a total of $3,124.29 in grant awards. You can find out more here
 
Thank you to all of the families who donated to the PTSA this Fall, and to all of the enthusiastic teachers who sought to add new, enriching material to enhance the learning of our students!

 The PCMS PTSA is on Remind! Keep up with news and volunteer opportunities throughout the school year, texted right to your phone! Remind is a quick and easy way to stay informed regarding important PTSA events and announcements. We promise not to send a lot of messages, but we will send 1-way texts publicizing volunteer opportunities and sharing announcements when we need to get the word out quickly (for example, if we are at risk of having to cancel an event due to an insufficient number of volunteers).

Follow this link to sign up: http://rmd.me/b?rid=70822991, or text @ptsare to 81010.

Wed, Nov 8th (AM & PM Sessions!) iRules Workshop
If you’re like most families, you’re concerned about how technology may be taking over your child’s life. So, let’s talk about tech! In this workshop we’ll come together with Janell Burley Hoffman, creator of the original iPhone contract (featured in SCREENAGERS) and a thought leader in the space of digital mindfulness, to talk about raising the digital generation – and all of the challenges and joys it brings. Everyone will leave with a working set of iRules (tech agreements) to bring home and support their families. Come ready to participate and learn from each other.
For parents only.
