Olympic View PTA

November 9, 2020

Dear Olympic View Families,

This year is unlike any other we’ve experienced.  The Olympic View PTA is working hard to make sure our students and teachers have what they need to be successful in remote learning.  But we need your support.  This letter marks the beginning of our direct ask campaign, the Flying Forward Fund.  All money raised goes directly towards Olympic View, including providing support to our kids and teachers with their remote learning needs and virtual (for now) community events.  

This year, your tax deductible contribution is vital to helping support and fund the following: 

  • Arts Enrichment and Arts Night (virtual)
  • Teacher remote classroom needs
  • Family engagement activities
  • Library Books
  • PE Equipment
  • Art Supplies
  • Grant to Olympic View (field trips, support, etc)
  • After School Program (planned for January 2021)
  • and much more!

Throughout the year, the OVPTA spends about $200 per child to fund OV and the many other programs and events that are offered. We do not know what the rest of this year will bring and whether we will be able to hold our other yearly fundraisers.  Please consider this when making your donation.  However, we know this is a difficult time for many families, and that all families will give back to Olympic View in whatever way they feel comfortable.  

This year, you can either donate online or send a check to school.  To donate online, go to www.ovpta.org and click on the “Donate” button.  You can also mail your check, made out to “OVPTA” to OVPTA, Olympic View Elementary School, 504 NE 95th St, Seattle, WA 98115.  Please pass this information on to friends and family who might want to support our school as well.  Also, if your employer has a matching donation program, please let them know you donated to OV!

Please return your donation (online or by mail) by December 4, 2020.

Thank you in advance for supporting our kids and our school!

 

Sincerely,

The Olympic View Parent-Teacher Association
