PTA Power Up Membership Challenge

pta-power-up-entryJason Lee PTA has entered the WA State PTA Power Up Membership Challenge.

To be in the running for winning money for the Jason Lee PTA we need more people join our PTA before the end of January.

Consider gifting your student’s teacher a PTA membership if they don’t already have one.

PTA discount cards make a great stocking stuffer.

If you’ve been dragging your feet on becoming a member now is the time to join the Jason Lee PTA. If the cost of membership is holding you back, we have a scholarship for that!

Joining PTA Means Joining PTA does not mean
  • You must attend meetings
  • You must volunteer
  • you must be a parent of a student at the school
  • You have to wear a crimson cougar shirt at school events

Don’t get me wrong. If you want to wear a cougar shirt, attend every meeting, and volunteer to help out at school that’s awesome. But that’s not a requirement of being a part of the PTA.

The more members we have the more votes we have at PTA Convention as well voting on the things that matter to us in Washington State. A large membership base increases our ability to advocate for the needs of children. We vote on officers for Washington State PTA, PTA rules and guidelines for Washington State, and we choose which things we want the WSPTA to advocate for with the Washington State Legislature as well through our votes.

What’s holding you back?

Join the Jason Lee PTA today.

Junior Joggers

117-SeeThrough-2Come jog with Jason Lee! Jason Lee Junior Joggers will continue to run through the middle of November.  Jason Lee students, parents, and staff can walk or jog laps during recess at Jason Lee every Tuesday and Thursday between 11:00-12:50.  Parents and siblings can use their own card to mark their laps. Any laps completed by parents or siblings will be counted toward the students’ classroom totals, not an individual student’s total. Volunteers are always welcome and needed to mark lap cards!

Be sure to fill out your RSD volunteer form so you can come help!
