For your information:
We are asking families to donate small prizes for our carnival games. Oriental Trading is a great resource for these small trinket prizes.
We will be holding a contest for our prize donations! The grade level that brings in the highest number of prizes from now through May 18th will win a popsicle party! Please write your student’s name, grade and teacher on the box when you send them in or deliver to the office.
On Tuesday, May 22nd the Parent Advisory Group will be discussing what the school and the district have completed since the ALL NE Tacoma Elementary school PTA meeting held in March. We will be discussing our next steps in regards to increasing safety and security at Crescent Heights Elementary. If you have any questions, please contact Dana Flynn at firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer Learning Reading Camp: For current 2nd and 3rd graders, June 25th through July 26th 8:30-1:00, please contact your child’s teacher for more information. The form is attached below.
Please consider sharing your input: Our state’s lead office for education – the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), led by State Superintendent Chris Reykdal – just opened a survey to the public asking for input on public K-12 education investments for the future. This is the first time families, educators, students, and community members will have an opportunity to give input about the areas where state leaders should focus funding.
The answers you give have the potential to impact what the Governor and State Legislature prioritize for years to come! If you place student mental health services high on your list, for example, we may end up with more funding for school counselors and other services. This is an opportunity to influence the education resources that school districts like ours receive from the state!
The survey will be open through Friday, June 8, and is available in nine languages in addition to English. These languages include Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Somali, Traditional Chinese, Khmer, Korean, Punjabi, and Tagalog. The survey takes five minutes to complete and it is completely anonymous.
You can take the survey on the OSPI website. If you have any questions about the survey, call OSPI Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at (360) 725-6000. Thank you for your valued input.
