Our 2019 Spring Recognition Breakfast is scheduled for
THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2019!!!
Join us in Haynes Hall at McMenamins Anderson School (in Bothell) this June. The event will run from 9:30am - 11:30am. This is a district wide event that gives local PTAs the opportunity to treat their award winners to a lovely meal and a morning out among their peers.
McMenamin's Anderson School
18607 Bothell Way NE
Local PTAs typically will invite their principal, executive team and their local award winners (e.g., Golden Acorn, Outstanding Educator, Outstanding Advocate, etc.). 'Official' invites will be available soon, but in order to allow their honored guests time to plan for the event, local PTAs are encouraged to begin making their invitations to administrators and board members now and to award winners as soon as they have been announced.
Traditionally, each Local PTA is responsible for the cost of its attendees. The cost this year is $20/person.
Please write a check for your whole group to Northshore Council PTSA.

Woodin PTA, in partnership with Northshore Council PTSA, would like to invite you to this Parent Education Night for parents and guardians of elementary aged students (grades 3-5).:

Talking with Your Child About Puberty
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 | 6:30 - 8pm
at Woodin Elementary
(12950 Northeast 195th Street Bothell, WA 98011)
Parents want to talk with their child about puberty, but may not be sure how to start or what to say. Educator Robin Wright will lead this seminar which provides parents with information and skills on how to start conversations, what to cover at each age, and how to answer tricky questions. The physical, emotional and social changes of puberty are also reviewed to help parents feel better prepared and know what to expect.
