Lost & Found

As the weather changes the WA layers come on and off through out the day which means the lost and found racks are filling up!!!!

The pictures are an example of a label one family uses, but sharpie on the label works too. All the racks have NO NAMES. The small pile are the coats with names that we were able to return today.

Don’t forget to put your students name in it! Especially Costco coats and lunch boxes that many other students have as well. If they have a name PTA volunteers or student leaders will work to return them to their owner.

5/6 Grade Fall Harvest Party Wrap-Up

Thanks to parent volunteers, staff and help from the 5/6 ASB leadership students, SWEPTA’s Fall Harvest Party was a huge success!

Over half of the 5th and 6th graders from South Whidbey Middle School and SWA attended and had a blast playing games, snacking and dancing with their peers.

6th grader Nolan Pearson won the costume contest with his HOMEMADE Tiki costume!!! The cheers were so loud voting for him, that his mom came in from the parking lot to see if everything was okay.

We look forward to hosting more Friday Fun Night events for the 5th and 6th graders in the future.

South Whidbey School District Unity Day Spirit Shirts

SWEPTA is sharing this message is from the South Whidbey School District that went out via email with a small update at the bottom with a little more info.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Nationally, statistics show that more than one out of every five students reports being bullied. We hope we will see all our South Whidbey Students in Spirit shirts on our South Whidbey School District Unity Day, the fourth Friday in October – October 27, 2017. South Whidbey School District stands together against bullying, united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.

Please support our efforts and complete the form for your child’s Spirit Shirt size (linked here) by Thursday, October 5, 2017. Please complete a new form for each of your children. 

If you have any trouble opening this link, please reply to this email with your child or children’s name, grade, classroom or first period teacher, t-shirt type (youth, mens, womens)  and size (xs, s, m, l, xl or xxl).

If your budget allows, please consider supporting this endeavor by making a donation.  Bring your cash or check donation made out SWSD marked for Spirit Shirts to your school front office or the District Office at 5520 Maxwelton Road, Langley WA 98260. The average cost is $10 per shirt. We will ensure every student receives a shirt regardless of their ability to donate. If you can cover the cost for an additional student, we greatly appreciate your help.

Attached, please find a picture of Spirit Shirts that were made for the staff.  Go Blue Whidbey and Savage Printing are working with SWSD to make a shirt for the students similar to these shirts.   The shirts will be the same blue color and have Go Blue South Whidbey Schools. However, we are looking at adding the Orca for the K-4 students, a Cougar for the 5-8 students and a Falcon for the 9-12 students.  The design is still in processWe have had many questions on the funding of the shirts.  The t-shirts are being printed for us by Savage Printing in Clinton. Go Blue Whidbey has helped us with the design. Sponsors include the Goosefoot, South Whidbey Schools Foundation, PTAs, Savage Printing and we have requests to vendors for donations and have received donations from teachers and parents sponsoring shirts for their students and additional students. Every child will receive a t-shirt. There is no fee. We are only requesting donations to help with the costs. The form is for parents to request the appropriate size so that we don’t have to guess what size each child might be and to cut down on having to purchase too many extras.  By completing the form, we can ensure your child receives the size you think they should have.

The purpose of the shirts is for UNITY and SPIRIT. We hope on SWSD Unity Day,  Friday, October 27, all students will GO BLUE and stand together unified for South Whidbey, for each other and against bullying. You can send any questions my way. When we receive the shirts, we could really use the help of the PTAs and leadership to distribute the shirts.
