Science Fair - Big Success
March 13, 1997
The March meeting of our PTA will be held this evening at 7:00
p.m. in the lunchroom. In addition to a full agenda of business
items, Mrs. Crichton and Mr. Femiano will be speaking on the topic
of math instruction in our school. Childcare will be available in
the gym for a small fee.
Help for the Homeless
Some of our 5th graders have organized a food, clothing and
coin drive to benefit the homeless people in Seattle. If you can
share any of the above items, please send them to school with your
children. The drive will end on April 11th. Thank you.
Instrumental Spring Concert
Our 4th and 5th grade students who are involved in our
instrumental program here at school will play in a large (five
school) concert on April 9th. The concert will be held at Leschi
Elementary School (135 - 32nd Avenue) at 7:00 p.m.
At our last PTA meeting I spoke about something called the
Weighted Student Formula - a new way of determining the budget
amount for a school in Seattle. I now have our 1997/98 budget
figures and they are very close to what we had this year so our
school program will remain very much as is. If you would like to
see these figures, I will present them at a meeting on Wednesday,
March 19th. The meeting will be held in the library at 7:00 p.m.
Free Class at Children's Hospital
James Callner, speaker and producer of the award winning film
"The Touching Tree", will present his film and speak on OCD

of professionals, including a parent of a child with OCD will
assist in answering your questions. The program is recommended for
parents, teachers and other professionals working with children
with OCD, ADHD and Tourette's Disorder. It will be held Wednesday,
March 26, 1997 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at Children's Hospital and
