Support Olympic View Elementary School by donating to the Move-A-Thon!

The 2017 Move-A-Thon will be on Friday, March 17th! Students will run per grade 8 AM - 11 AM, and the all school dance party is at 12:30 PM.  We are looking for parent volunteers to dress as Beaky. Families are invited to come cheer on kids, run with the kids and volunteer to mark laps or hand out snacks. Here is the Sign-Up Genius for volunteering. Pledge Sheets went home this week via KidMail.  If your student did not receive one, please let us know.  Click here for extra pledge sheets!

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the following businesses, we can provide a t-shirt for every student and staff member on Move-A-Thon day. We couldn't do it without them!

OV's Spring Multicultural Party

What:  A party to celebrate all the AMAZING and DIVERSE cultures that are represented at our school! 
When:  April 6th 6:00-7:30 pm 
Where:  OV cafeteria
We are looking for families to volunteer and participate by giving performances (singing, dancing, etc.), teaching traditional games, bringing cultural artifacts to display, bringing finger foods or beverages.  If you are interested, please return the flyer that went home this week, or contact Ms. Maiani (portable 3), Ms. Jordan (rm 205), Ms. Law (rm 212) or parent Trisha Matthieu at tmatth@gmail.com.  We look forward to seeing all the diversity OV has to offer and hope you can join!

OV is a Community

In light of the news out of DC, as well as demonstrations around the city, country and world, the members of the PTA Board want to reiterate loud and clear that we are here to support ALL of our students and families, no matter where you’re from, what you believe, or what your immigration status may be.  If you or someone you know could use some help, we will do what we can to support you.  If you have ideas about how the OVPTA can be more supportive of our families who might be feeling particularly vulnerable at this time, please email us at olyviewpta@gmail.com.  Thank you!


Springing into March

As we "spring" into March, we are beginning to plan for the next school year. OVPTA is always looking for people to collaborate with for the various programs the PTA funds and supports at our school. Examples are volunteering at an event, leading or being a part of a committee or joining the board. We have a few positions left to fill for next year's board. If you are interested and/or want more information, please email us at olyviewpta@gmail.com. One position that remains open and is crucial for the PTA to operate is Co-Treasurer. Responsibilities include: Management and oversight of the organization's finances, ensure maintenance of proper records, and that fiscal controls and protocols are being met. Each treasurer holds a 2-year position. The first year/junior treasurer takes deposits to the bank, checks the PayPal account, and checks the OVPTA Gmail account. The Co-Treasurer will be working alongside Lead Treasurer Jackie Hillman!



OVPTA Advocacy Chair Recap of Focus Day 2017 
(picture credit:  OVPTA Advocacy Chair - 5500 people attended the rally)


This year's annual Focus Day occurred on MLK Day. This annual event is intended to serve as the focal point for Washington State PTA's legislative advocacy.  This year included the "Education is a Civil Right" Rally on the State Capitol steps, access to the Capitol Building, coordinated meetings with the state legislators, and speeches by Governor Inslee, OSPI leader Reykdal, and WSPTA Board President Barbara Martin.  Our day also included a self-guided walking tour of the lovely downtown Olympia with its historical guideposts, a little window shopping, and a walk around the Capitol Lake. I found Focus Day to be a great, fun way to introduce my kids to advocacy and Olympia, WA.  We were even thanked by a few local educators for showing support for better funded education!
