SPE Fund Drive: Help Us Meet Our Goal

WHO: Friends, Family, Staff and Community – share the opportunity to support our school with others! 5th Grade families – please consider a legacy gift for future Squirrels!

WHAT: Help us meet our $100,000 goal! We are not there yet!

WHERE: Online – It’s easy! https://sandpointelementarypta.schoolauction.net/spring2020/give/index

WHEN: NOW! Donations gladly accepted any time but the prize incentive deadline is Wednesday! Donations must be made by midnight Wednesday, June 17th to be eligible for prizes!

WHY: Even though we were unable to have our big annual fundraising benefit concert this year, we are committed to continue to support Sand Point Squirrels into next year. See the many ways SPE PTA supports Sand Point on the pie chart posted above.

MORE GOOD NEWS: Last Tuesday, the Sand Point PTA voted to contribute $1000 to Rainier View Elementary’s PTSA to help with their call to support their COVID-19 Relief Fund. We have sent them a check!!

The decision was made that we will also give 50% of whatever we raise over our $100,000 spring fundraising campaign to Rainier View as well. Please donate by Wednesday, June 17, 2020 and help us to help others!

ONE MORE THING: Don’t forget about your corporate match, if you have one (corporate match dollars do not count towards prizes). This is a great way to stretch your donation!

We also encourage you to support our sponsors who have been champions in supporting our school. Thank you to: Ryan General Contractors, Windermere Real Estate, Macrina Bakery, ShelfGenie, Kalies Group, Kumon University Village, LeCuyer & Amato Dentistry, RPM Mortgage, Evergreen Home Loans, Laurelhurst Dentistry Group, and Roosevelt Vision. We will also be publishing a list of all businesses who donated products or services to say “Thank You” from the Sand Point Community.

Morning SEL Update: June 12

Good Morning Families,

For our last Moment of SEL for the school year we need to have a quick visit with understanding perspective. Well, maybe not understanding it, maybe just recognizing it exists and it can be as varied as the people who possess it. Consider perspective over the summer. This episode focuses primarily on the potential differing perspectives surrounding Donald Trump’s decision to hold a political rally on Juneteenth in Tulsa, OK. Join us!

Morning SEL Update: June 9

Good Morning Families,

Social Engagement means the ability to consider others and a desire to contribute to the well-being of a social group, or community. The foundation of social engagement is empathy. That’s the ability to share in the feelings of others from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and situations. We are in a time of tremendous social engagement. Today we are working on helping build that language for students to lend their voice as they feel necessary. Join us! Note – The audio versions have clips from recent protests.

Good Morning Families,

Social Engagement is a very important aspect of Social Emotional Learning. If you look around our city, region, nation you will see many great displays of these skills. This week we are learning about social engagement and the Constitution of the United States and the first amendment to that constitution. Plus, we’ll hear from folks out on the streets exercising both these skills and the rights guaranteed to us all. Join us.

Morning SEL Update: June 5

Good Morning Families,

Of the many aspects of bullying that are hurtful the time it can last may be the worst. Day in and day out.

Today we look at the aspect of bullying behavior that is ongoing. We will look at many examples in our society with particular focus on the behavior choices made by Derrick Chauvin. We are using the language of bullying because it is the language of schools. It is also a way to help students find ways to join in the current social conversations happening around dinner tables and public spaces. Join us.

Morning SEL Update: June 4

Good Morning Families,

We continue focusing on bullying today by learning about power. This can be complicated, but fortunately for learning we have many of examples of when choices about how to use power go bad. Unfortunately, this often produces difficult emotion information for those involved. Fortunately for us, we’re learning about power and how to interact with all types of emotion information. Join us!
