The PTSA values your opinion. Please complete the following short survey help us to better serve you next year.
Used School Supply Drive
June 12 - 19, 2013
As the school year quickly comes to an end, it is time to purge your child's desk, pencil boxes and backpacks. PTSA Sharing is Caring will once again be collecting all of your junk and donate it to Sister Schools (Uganda), Issaquah Food Bank and Hopelink.
We will take all broken/used crayons, pencils, colored pencils, markers and erasers. Pencil boxes, lunch boxes (emptied and cleaned), backpacks (clean please). Used spiral notebooks (tear out used pages), 3 ring binders, scissors, blank paper, pocket dictionaries, calculators, rulers. Basically anything used for school can be re-used in Uganda and at our local Food bank. Please put your items in a bag and place them in the boxes outside of the office!! Thanks so much.

PTSA Volunteer Opportunities
Back to School Social Committee
Back-to-School Social Committee Chairperson Needed! This is a popular event in September that kicks off the school year and the whole family is invited! In the past, we've worked with Cold Stone Creamery in Redmond who provides the ice cream, supplies, and people to scoop. The Ice Cream Social Chairperson and
committee organizes the event with volunteers and teachers to give out toppings- always an event favorite! If you are interested in organizing this event for the fall of 2013, please contact:
Kay Collins - email@example.com
Andi Zahn - firstname.lastname@example.org
Next year, the PTSA will be running the Math Club! Our leader of the last two years is heading off to Princeton.
Olga Bezruchkina has volunteered to lead the club for next year's 5th graders. We are looking for a second parent volunteer to lead the 4th graders. If you will have a child in the fourth grade next year, and are interested in helping lead the math club, please contact Lori Coulson (email@example.com) or May Hegazi (Mansour) (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You may also speak with Olga directly (email@example.com) if you have questions on the
curriculum, competitions, time commitment, or anything else specific.
Non-school related community information about events and programs that benefit students. Information on this bulletin board has been provided specifically for the information of students and families of Blackwell.
Does Your Daughter Want to be a Girl Scout?
Is she interested in becoming one of the leaders of tomorrow? Is she looking for fun and friendship? Does she want to build character and self-esteem and serve
her community? In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society. Find out more at a Girl Scout Interest Meeting! June 13, 2013, 6:00 p.m. at the Sammamish Library. Parents and potential Girl Scouts are welcome! Questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
