Hey Montlakers! The days are getting shorter, the air is slowly cooling, the leaves are turning golden and red. It’s that time again – time for our Fall Garden Work Party!

Come join us on Saturday, October 27 from 9:30-12:30 for some good healthy raking, weeding and general tidying to get our school garden in tip top shape for the winter!

We provide bagels, coffee and all garden tools. You bring the muscles and the teamwork. Drop by if you can! Every bit helps. This event will go ahead rain or shine.

Please Complete Our Montlake PTA School of Excellence Survey!

Montlake, families, we hope you will ALL take this short (5 minute), anonymous survey to help us launch our application for the National PTA School of Excellence recognition program!

Survey link: Montlake PTA School of Excellence Survey

This program represents a year-long commitment on the part of the PTA and school administration to building and strengthening an inclusive and welcoming school community where all families contribute to enriching the educational experience and overall wellbeing of all students.

The linked survey is essential to establishing a baseline for improving our family-school partnerships, and YOUR VOICE is vital to ensuring that we are capturing the opinions and perspectives of all of our families. Responses will be accepted until November 14, 2018.

PLAYDATES AT THE PARK!
CANCELLED – 2nd & 3rd Grade: We need to cancel this playdate originally scheduled for Sunday, October 28, 3-5 p.m. because we’ve heard that many families are already planning to go to our PTA-organized Sounders game outing. Look for future updates. We will reschedule!
We are hosting these gatherings by grade so that same grade parents can get to know each other. However, please feel free to bring younger or older siblings.
