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!


 

Swinging into February


Thank you joining us at the first PTA General Meeting of 2017! Our first ever PTA General Meeting service project was a huge success.  We made care kits and fleece blankets for our local International Rescue Committee and YouthCare!  If you have ideas for our next meetings' service project, please contact the PTA at olyviewpta@gmail.com


Mark your calendars for Olympic View's all-school ARTS NIGHT on Thursday, February 16th from 6:00-7:30pm!  Students and families are invited to come for a creative celebration of arts learning and art making in our school and community. The event will feature:

Student Performances by the OV after-school choirs; 1st Graders dancing from their in-school residencies with Pacific Northwest Ballet; a sneak peek at a song from the school musical, Seussical, Jr.; instrumental music students
Hands-on arts activities from OV staff and community arts organizations including Seattle Re-Creative, Thrive Art School, Music Center of the Northwest with an instrument petting zoo, and more!
Showcases of student work from smART Friday classes, Art Docent projects, Multi-Arts classes, and classroom work
Demonstrations of art making and art in careers from OV families
Bake Sale raising money for 3rd grade camp!!!

Please join us to celebrate arts learning at OV! If you would like to volunteer at Arts Night, it is not too late to host an activity booth or arts in careers demonstration (if you are an artist, chef, architect, sewer, graphic designer, musician, etc. consider sharing how the arts have influenced your career). We will also need help with set-up and clean-up. Contact PTA co-chair of Student Enrichment, Shannon Barnes at shannonmbarnes@gmail.com if you are interested or have questions about the event.



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!
