It is the time of the year to select our classroom parent representatives. We are looking for two parents from each classroom to take on the role of classroom representative.


Dear Fabulous Stevens Star Parents,

It is the time of the year to select our classroom parent representatives.

We are looking for two parents from each classroom to take on the role of classroom rep.


The role of the rep includes:

Providing communication to the parents in the class from the PTA,

Helping the teacher in gathering volunteers and assisting in gathering resources for classroom projects, gathering parent volunteers from the classroom for PTA and Community Events.

It is the goal of the Stevens staff and the PTA to have strong communication so that everyone in our Stevens Community is included in all of our school events. If you would like to be considered as a PTA Rep for your classroom--- please email your child's classroom teacher and tell them you are interested in being a classroom rep for your child's classroom. The role of the classroom rep is not an overwhelming task. You help answer questions and help to gather additional volunteers for our school and events. You also help answer questions about our school community for our newest Stevens families.


Please consider being a classroom representative for your child's classroom and email your child's teacher today.

Thank you for being an active parent in your child's education.

Teamwork makes the dream work.

Have a sensational day!

And remember---- Goooooooooooooooooooooooo STARS!

Sincerely,

Your PTA Board

If you need additional information about the role of a classroom representative-- please feel free to email Glory Wilson glwilson@seattleschools.org


To sign up as a classroom representative, please speak to your student's teacher.

Our next Stevens PTA meeting is Tuesday, October 26th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Zoom. Add to calendar here. Zoom link: https://seattleu.zoom.us/j/93601501648.
