Seattle Public Schools is considering policy changes and proposals that would have significant impacts on Thurgood Marshall families. These include the district proposal to change the HCC policy and program in southeast Seattle, and a proposed partnership with STEM by TAF at Washington Middle School. Our PTA is working to gather information as quickly as possible to help keep families informed of updates and important dates.
Here are two actions you can take:
- See the news item below titled “Recap and Notes from 10/22 Meeting” for more information.
- Bookmark the Board Calendar: https://tinyurl.com/spsboard-dates to keep track of board and committee meetings and agendas. Board members often have open meeting hours to hear from families, usually at a local library or coffee shop.

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.
