PTA Meeting - Tonight
Please join us for the April meeting of the PTA this evening at 7:00 p.m. We will meet in the lunchroom and child care will be available in the gym. Tonight we are in for a special treat. Following a short business meeting, Patty Wallace, a counselor at Group Health will be speaking to us on the topic of "parenting styles". It promises to be a wonderful opportunity for all of our parents and I hope you will plan to attend. Because we want to allow plenty of time for questions our meeting will run from 7:00 - 8:30 tonight.

Talent Show Tomorrow
Our annual Talent Show will be held tomorrow at 1:30 in the lunchroom. Feel free to join us if you're not busy.

Spring Vacation
The Seattle Public Schools will be closed the week of April 14th for spring vacation. I hope your family has a nice break.

The IOWA Testing
The week following spring vacation we will begin to administer the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. You can help your child do his/her best on this test by being sure your child:

  • gets plenty of rest.
  • eats a good breakfast each day.
  • receives encouragement from you to do well.
  • understands that the testing period is important.

Reading Challenge
Reminder: The kids need to read 2,000 books by April 30th if they want to hear me RAP. Spring vacation is a great time to read. Have your children jot down the title of all the books they read over the break and send them to school on the 21st.

Have a nice vacation!

Carl Leatherman

P.S. Our new phone number will be 933-5350 after spring break.
