Still Need $500 for School Supplies

As of 10/18/19 the PTA still needs to collect another $500 towards school supplies to break even for the year.  If you haven’t contributed yet and are able to (at any level) please do so by November 1.

Bulk ordering reduces costs and helps to ensure that every child has the same supplies. Parents are asked to pay $40 per student (or what you are able).

Visit our School Supplies main page for basic information and to pay. Visit our FAQ page for further details.

Thank you!

Enter PTA Arts Contest

Oct. 18 is the deadline for entering the Thurgood Marshall round of this year’s national PTA “Reflections” arts contest.

Students may enter original work in any of six categories: visual art (2D or 3D), photography, literature, music composition, film/video production and dance choreography! An optional “special artist” category is available to students who qualify under ADA regulations. TM’s entries are placed in age divisions: Grades Pre-K-2 or Grades 3-5.

Entries should reflect the 2019-20 theme, “Look Within.”

Full rules for each category are on the WA State PTA’s Reflections info page. Entries should be brought to the TM Art Room (Room 208), and include this entry form, which requires a short “artist’s statement.”

Questions? Contact the TM PTA’s Reflections coordinator at reflections@tmlink.org.

Winners in this round will advance to a citywide competition, which includes an art show at Seattle Center. There’s a chance to reach the statewide and national rounds! Some recent TM entries have won citywide and statewide recognition. Read about 2018-19 winners.

Pay for School Supplies through PTA

The PTA, in collaboration with teachers, has pre-ordered classroom supplies.  Bulk ordering reduces costs and helps to ensure that every child has the same supplies. Parents are asked to pay $40 per student (or what you are able) and all standard classroom supplies will be supplied.

Families still must supply backpacks, and may be asked by teachers for personal  items such as reusable water bottles.

Visit our School Supplies main page for basic information and to pay. Visit our FAQ page for further details.
