The training and distribution of Holiday Baskets Food, Toys and Teen Gifts drive & The Works material is happening on Thursday, October 9th at 7:00 PM in the Shoreline PTA Council office (Richmond Room) at the Shoreline Center located at 18560 1st Ave NE. This is the night that all the Family Service Chairs receive an introduction to the programs and their roles, receive the necessary paperwork for the Holiday Baskets drive and The Works, and sign up for your schools designated volunteer nights at The Works. If you are unable to attend, please find a representative to come in your place.
Region 6 has a Fall Newsletter out, and it is chock full of great information!
Region 6 is Seattle, Shoreline Northshore, and Vashon Councils.
Read it and share it!!
PTA & the Law will be offered on Wednesday, October 1 at the Northshore Admin Center.
It is a requirement for all Local PTAs to have one officer take this every year; it is a great idea for as many Board members as possible to attend. Taken it so many times you could practically teach it? Things change every year, and so do the questions that other PTAs bring up. It's worth the investment of your time!!

Please contact Jeff Sackett, Council President, to let him know what classes your Board would like to attend so that he can find instructors for that evening. Email him: firstname.lastname@example.org
