PTSA Science Fair Volunteers Needed

Publication1The Lake Youngs PTSA Science Fair is looking for volunteers to help make the fair a success. The event takes place this March 20, 21, 22, and 23. In order to maintain this strong tradition, we highly depend on volunteers to help operate a smooth event. Most of the jobs do not require a science background:
• Data Entry
• Project Check-In
• Set Up
• Award Distribution
• Clean Up
• Runner Coordinator
• Class Viewing Supervision
• Judges (see below)
For those of you who do have a science background (scientists, engineers, medical), we always have a need for judges on the final day of the event (March 23). The time required to judge the almost 200 projects is highly dependent on the number of judge volunteers. Each judge meets with the student to discuss the project. Our judges have generally enjoyed the event and have returned for many years.
If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please contact Noreen Johnson-LaTour ( 253.653.7967.

Box Tops Totals!

box topsCongratulations to all Lake Youngs staff & students for participation in the February PTSA Box Top contest! We had almost 100% class participation collecting the clipped Box Tops, which earned approximately $480 for our school.  And the winning class was… Mrs. Parsley’s class with 497 Box Tops collected! That’s an average of 16 per student.  Her class will enjoy a popsicle party from the PTSA.

Runners up were Ms. Brennan at 14.6 Box Tops per student, Mrs. Tjaden at 12.9 Box Tops per student, Mrs. Adzanku at 10.9 Box Tops per student, and Miss Nickels at 10.6 Box Tops per student.
