News and Events
We have raised over $16,000 this year. Thank You to families who've donated. "Give Where You Live" is our Direct Give Campaign, 100% goes directly to our school and is 100% tax deductible.
Consider donating to Give Where You Live this holiday season. The direct give program goes to the General Fund which supports reading and math tutors, classroom and school supplies, the art program, playground supervision and equipment, community engagement activities, teacher training, book purchases, special instructional materials, and more.
Due to cutbacks, PTA funds were also able to support the addition of one day for our Librarian, Math Specialist and School Counselor. You can make the average $380 per child via a one-time donation or set-up monthly payments. Give what you can, every donation counts!
Every year at this time, we ask parents to take a few minutes to share their impressions on a range of initiatives and programs throughout the school. We review your responses carefully on our Building Leadership Team, and your feedback is greatly appreciated. Also, we continue to benefit from the information you can provide to help us plan enrollment in the coming years. There is a separate, optional enrollment survey as well (not anonymous) – especially for families with younger siblings or changing plans.
|Looking for information in a bulletin earlier this year? Even last year? You can find all the bulletins under "Bulletin Archives" on the right hand side of the Schmitz Park home page, under Additional Links.|
Please put your boxtops in a baggie or envelope labeled with your child's name and room number. Give them to your child's teacher or deposit them in the bin outside of the office. The room with the highest number of boxtops wins a class party! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Seattle Public Schools requirements for volunteering at school have changed slightly for the 2014/2015 school year. Please make sure that you . . .
- Complete a Washington State Patrol background check (this must be conducted every year);
- Provide a copy of your drivers license to the front office ;
- Complete an online sexual harassment training and print out the certificate and provide a copy to the front office.

Please note that all volunteers must sign in at the front desk using Help Counter and print a badge. Those parents who have not completed all three steps in the volunteer process, will not show up as volunteers in this system and will be asked to register as a visitor until they can complete the process. Please let us know if you need access to a computer at school in order to complete the training. We appreciate your help and cooperation with these new requirements.
