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.
Our next general membership meeting is Monday, October 28th at 7pm. In a twist, we are taking this meeting ON THE ROAD! Join us at Meeker Middle School, 12600 SE 192nd St, Renton, WA 98058. Our Superintendent Calvin Watts and School Board President Maya Vengadasalam will be joining us in the Library and letting us know what’s happening in the KSD. All are welcome!
“Look Within” is this year’s Reflections theme. To participate, register your local PTA/PTSA online with National PTA at www.pta.org/reflections and begin to promote the program at your school. There are many great resources available online!

- Is KAC still giving out memberships gained through Denali Credit Union?
Yes, we will be distributing memberships to all units who send representatives to our General Meetings. We have been working on updating our internal processes in order to reduce the amount of paperwork.

Yes! Leg Assembly is on October 20 & 21 in Tacoma this year. Click here for information on registering and getting a hotel room. The deadline for the discounted hotel rate is September 28.

Washington has a new program (this is only the second year) for High School students called the Game Development Challenge. You can find more information about it in the Leadership News.
- How can I get involved in PTA at the Council Level?
We are always looking for new leaders to help out on our committees, and we have 2 open officer positions as well. If you are interested, please contact Heidi at email@example.com. Open committee positions include Programs, Newsletter, and Communications. We also have current committee chairs who are looking for someone to take over within the next year for Clothing Bank and Cinderella Project, and our Reflections chair needs a co-chair who can be at the meetings to answer questions and give reports. Come and join us!
