OVPTA General Meeting and Service Project

Our PTA General Meeting is this Tuesday, January 24th from 6:30-8:00 PM.  After a few PTA "business" matters we must tend to, including Mr. Bean speaking about the SPS budget shortfall, we invite you to join us in a service project to support our community. Chat with fellow parents while working together!  A light dinner will be served and kids are welcome!

If you are able, feel free to bring any of the following items to inclue in care kits for our local International Rescue Committee and YouthCare:
-Fleece (the kids will help make blankets)
-Travel sized soaps, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes
-Paper Towels
-Dish soap, laundry detergent & multi-purpose cleaners
-Diapers

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you there!
 

Here is the event information on the Facebook page.

Happy New Year!


We hope you all had a wonderful Winter Break! The OV Annual Food and Toy drive was a success! With Ballard Elks as our partners, we served 56 families and over 120 children with new toys, food and gift cards.  Thank you so much to the OV staff for organizing and for our community's generosity!

More thanks for your generosity!  Thanks to all of you, we reached our Flying Forward Fund goal! Tickets are still available for the Celebration & Silent Auction on Saturday, February 4th, at 5:30 PM at Elliott Bay Public House and Brewery. You may purchase tickets here on the website. Procurement for the silent auction will be starting soon.  If you have something in mind you would like to donate, please contact us at olyviewpta@gmail.com.

The Winter After School Enrichment starts on Thursday, January 19th.  If you have not signed up your student for a class and wish to do so, here is the registration information.

Our first PTA General Meeting of 2017 is on Tuesday, January 24th, at 6:30 PM in the OV Cafeteria.  This month’s meeting will be more fun than business. Socialize with other OV families (kids welcome!) as we work together on a service project.  More information coming soon!

Also on January's calendar is OV's next movie night on Friday, January 27th, at 6 PM in the OV Cafeteria.  We will be watching Inside Out!  Hope to see you there!


2017 Focus Day is Monday, January 16th, in Olympia at the Capitol Building.  Focus Day is intended to serve as a focal point for WSPTA's legislative advocacy.  It is a day of training, education, meetings with legislators, and other activities that help members engage directly in the legislative process.  If you would like to know more about this all day event, please visit the 2017 WSPTSA Focus Day page.  Registration is not required to attend the rally on the capitol steps at 10:30 AM or meet with your legislator..


If you have not heard, the school board voted 6-1 to keep Olympic View's boundaries unchanged for the 2017-2018 school year.  Again, a huge shout out to Kathleen Zagers for all of her advocacy and work on the growth boundaries.  Note:  If you have a 5th grader, middle school boundaries are still up in the air.  Stay tuned, and keep emailing growthboundaries@seattleschools.org.

Next school year, 2017-2018, the district is increasing the school day by 20 minutes.  The school board is voting in January to approve the proposal that bell times would start 10 minutes earlier and would end 10 minutes later next year. This means school would start at 7:45 AM and end at 2:15 PM. In addition, every Wednesday would be a 1-hour early release, which allows for teachers to have increased collaboration time. You can provide feedback to the district at arrivaltimes@seattleschools.org until the vote next week.
