Thank you to everyone who has sent officer information in to Council. It is very helpful as we look ahead to next year so that we can get good communication tools in place.
If you have not already, please forward - at the very least - your Presidents, Treasurers, Membership Chairs, Family Services Chairs, Reflections Chairs, Awards Chairs, and Advocacy Directors/VPs. Email information to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all you do and have done, and have a wonderful summer!!!
The Shoreline PTA Council Dessert Training is set for Monday, May 19 from 7-9 pm at the Shoreline Center.
This is an opportunity for you to get some training for the coming year and meet fellow officers across the District. In the past, classes for Treasurers, Secretaries, Board leadership, Presidents, and Advocacy have been offered.
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: email@example.com
A reminder that this class is the same evening as the retirement ceremony for Superintendent Sue Walker. That event takes place at Shorewood from 4-6 pm.
If you have mail to send to Council, please make sure you send it to the NEW Post Office Box! The new address is:
PO Box 55832
Shoreline, WA 98155
Mail will get forwarded for awhile, but please change your records now!

If you thought that the McCleary decision found money for public schools and fixed the problem, you've been misled.
You are invited to come hear an informative and engaging presentation by Tom Ahearne, the lead counsel for the largest public education funding lawsuit in our State. Find out how public education is funded, what the McCleary decision really means for students and our community, what progress has been made, and what we can expect next.
