Message from Your PTA

Dear Sand Point Families,

Hope you are doing well and ready for what we know will be a memorable year at Sand Point!

As in years past, your Sand Point Elementary PTA takes the stress and hassle out of school preparations and purchases all the school supplies needed for the start of the year! For remote learning, Sand Point teachers have decided what supplies their students will need to start this year off with success, including headsets with microphones. Throughout remote learning, we may have other supplies which will be coming home to students.

This year we are requesting a $55/per student fee payable to the Sand Point Elementary PTA (SPE PTA) by Friday, September 25th. You may pay online at www.paypal.me/sandpointpta. Please note your child(ren)’s name and teacher(s) in the notes section when you submit payment so we may match your payment to your child(ren)’s classroom. Also, be sure to de-select the box about the payment being for goods or services, so that fees are not charged.

Please consider sponsoring fees for students who may not be able to afford the full amount. And for those families who need a partial scholarship, we appreciate any amount that is consistent with your family’s budget. (Full scholarships are also available. Please complete the Supplies Form which went home in the Welcome Packet to request one.)

We hope you will join us in supporting the PTA as a PTA member. Detailed information regarding what our PTA is all about and what we do is in your Welcome Packet. Your membership helps give a parent voice in everything we do to support Sand Point Elementary. Join online: http://sandpointelementarypta.org/join/ . Scholarships are also available for PTA memberships. Please complete the paper form to request one.

Thank you for your continued support of all our Sand Point Squirrels and the PTA. If you have any questions, please email sandpointelempta@gmail.com.

Stay healthy,

Sand Point Elementary PTA

Sand Point Library

We miss our Sand Point Library! SPE Librarian Joy Burke and Sand Point staff are developing a plan to get books to students. Hooray! Stay tuned for more information to come.

Meanwhile, students may use EPIC to access books to read on screen. If your Squirrel does not know how to login in to EPIC, contact your student’s teacher for assistance.

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.
