Our principal, Dr Hutchison, shared a message about how important our PTSA is and we wanted to share it with all of you!
Not a lot of people know this but Lake Youngs PTSA is a volunteer organization and its success depend on the enthusiasm and efforts of all its members. Every parent is welcome and encouraged to volunteer in whatever way he or she feels most comfortable. Getting involved in the PTSA is a great way to get to know other parents, staff and school life in general. It’s the best way to “stay in touch” with what is going on and be able to have a voice for your child and school.
LYPTSA have over the last five years has provided and supported the following: –
School grants (Annex walls, New sound system, Projector), Grade level grants (Biz Town, Safeco, Salmon Hatchery, Olympia), Program and Assemblies (Pacific Science Centre, Taproot, Children’s theatre) and not forgetting the beloved 6th grade Camp Seymour.
Other programs that LYPTSA supports include: –
- A district acknowledged Art Docent program led by a devoted team of Volunteers who share their passion with children and inspire them to be the next Michael Angelo’s of the 21st
- A long established Bookfair program team that supports Lake Youngs Library and all Grade Level Teachers encouraging the love of reading.
- A Grizzly reading program that has been established for over 25 years and is the proud recipient of Washington State Golden Applegate awards which encourages and supports the love of reading for all children and Teachers at Lake Youngs.
- A beloved Science Fair program run by dedicated volunteers that encourages and captures budding scientists to explore the unknown and test the unthinkable.
LYPTSA purpose is to bridge the financial gap that unfortunately comes with today’s budget cut backs and provide memories that last a lifetime. We need your help in maintaining the amazing work all the volunteers do by fundraising to make these dreams come true, without fundraising and your support we cannot do everything we do to let every child their right to reach their true potential.
