PTA SHINE A LIGHT TO PREVENT FALLS CONTINUES UNTIL JANUARY 22ND

 

Because of snow days, the Shine A Light drive will continue until January 22nd! Bring in those night lights to help your community and help your classroom win!

 

We are so excited to announce that MLE and Snohomish County Fire District #1 are partnering together to make our community safer with the "Shine a Light to Prevent Falls" program. Falls are the leading cause of fatal injuries and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.

 

MLE wants to help reduce this number by providing night lights to seniors. Starting on January 6th, students can donate a night light and a personal card to a senior, during our Shine a Light to Prevent Falls drive. There are three parts to this drive...

 

1. Purchase a new night light. It must have the UL or ETL safety symbol on it.

2. Write a card or draw a picture to the person who will receive the night light. The letter should be generic with something like: "I am thinking of you and I hope you stay safe." Have your student sign ONLY THEIR FIRST name.

3. Bring the night light and card to their classroom where we will collect them.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Caitlin McAfee at mcafeec@gmail.com

 


 

‘Donuts with Dad’

Re-Scheduled to Thursday 1-30-2020 @ 7:30 am

Fathers and Father-figures,

 

Thursday January 30, 7:30 – 8:30 am is ‘Donuts with Dad’! Bring your student/s and meet in the school Library for FREE donuts and drinks and includes a presentation about our WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) Program. WATCH D.O.G.S.®  is an innovative program being used by schools across America. It helps students be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. The goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and provide an extra set of eyes and ears.

 

‘Dads, granddads, uncles, step-dads and adult brothers . . . this is your chance to have special time with your student in a fun atmosphere at school. 

 

In order to participate, you need to do two things: 

  1. Fill out the bottom portion of the attached and return it with your student (ASAP) saying that you will attend so we will have an accurate head count for the food. 
  2. Mark your calendars. See you Thursday January 30 from 7:30-8:30 AM. Official WATCH D.O.G.S.® Uniform T-shirts for Dads (and ‘My Hero’ T-shirts for students) will be available to order.

Tuesday, February 11, 2020 Voting Information – Important to Edmonds School District

 

On the voting ballot, there are two important things for the Edmonds School District.

1) $600 million Capital Construction Bond, and

2) $96 million Replacement Technology/Capital Levy.

 

The Edmonds School District is committed to maintaining a level tax rate

To maintain a level tax rate for the proposed 2020 bond, the district has structured bond issues on a cycle that allows for older bonds to be paid off just as new bonds are issued. The tax rate is dependent on the assessed valuation of the district. That means, as the assessed valuation increased because of growth, the tax rate per one thousand dollars of assessed property decreases, which allows the district to consider future bond measures while maintaining a stable tax rate.

 

Design spaces for today’s standard for learning

Our elementary schools are over capacity. The 2020 bond will help make space for current and future students. Our older schools do not support current educational programs are reaching the end of their useful service life. New buildings will be designed to improve student learning.

 

Maintain advanced technology program for our students

The 2020 Replacement Technology/Capital Levy provides funding for technology for student learning and capital facilities improvements. This means one-to-one computers in grades 2-12 and two students to one computer in grades K-1. The levy will also support classroom technology, teacher training and support as well as provide internet access for students at home who can’t afford this educational tool.

 

Take student safety to a new level

Student safety is our top priority. The 2020 Bond and Levy will provide funding for the district to continue to not only keep up with the latest safety, security and emergency preparedness improvements, but take our safety commitment to a new level with technology improvements, physical building/site improvements and training and support.

 

Please consider these as you choose your vote on February 11, 2020
