The Kent Area Council PTSA membership on Monday, Jan. 27th, 2020 voted to endorse the Kent School District EP&O Levy. This is a 2 year replacement levy that will benefit all students and help create a safe environment, support educational programs and help protect staffing levels, especially in areas that are not fully State funded, such as school nurses, health rooms and security officers.
The Kent community has been a strong supporter of our public schools, passing levies since 1984. Washington State PTA is the oldest and the largest nonprofit grassroots children’s advocacy association in the state. Our mission is to improve the quality of children’s health, welfare, safety, and education.
Our membership has indicated that this levy will do just that.
For a variety of reasons, this year’s President and Principals lunch has been cancelled. We as a Board are thinking of way to re-imagine this event, so stay tuned! If we are able to schedule a new event this school year, we will be sure to let all local units know.
Emerald Park Elementary PTSA, in partnership with Soos Creek Elementary PTA, Martin Sortun Elementary PTA and Sunrise Elementary PTA, is hosting a Parenting Safe Kids Night this Monday, Nov. 4th from 6-8pm. All are welcome to attend! Refreshments and childcare will be provided.
