Camp Wooten Fundraiser: Mixed Bag Designs

Thousands of Jason Lee Students have participated in the Camp Wooten Outdoor Education program over the last 37 years. It’s a week they never forget!

Our current 5th Grade classes are already preparing for camp in the spring by fundraising. They will be selling items from Mixed Bag Designs. We want every 5th Grade Student to create their own memories of Camp Wooten! Thank you for supporting them in their efforts!

If you don’t know a 5th grader and are interested in purchasing any of these items, shop  online or contact one of the 5th grade teachers! They can put you in contact with a student.

PTA is getting ready for a great 2017-2018 school year

Jason Lee PTA has been busy getting ready for a great school year.  Last May we met with Mr. Jisa & Mr. Neill to hammer out the Jason Lee Elementary calendar of events for the 2017-2018 school year.  Over the summer, the Jason Lee PTA got a new website.  Take a moment to browse through the calendar, contact information, PawPrint newsletters, and past projects the PTA has completed.

discount-pta-card-websiteThis year, Jason Lee PTA created a discount card for PTA members to use at Jason Lee events.  Save on yearbook and T-shirt purchases.  Get a glow stick at skate night, free items at the bookfair, and extra tickets for the carnival.

Jason Lee PTA members will receive a Jason Lee discount card, the RSD discount card for businesses around town, and WSPTA discounts to Silverwood, Wild Waves, Great Wolf lodge, rental cars, FedEx, and more.   Plus enjoy the National PTA discounts as well.

When the homework folders come home the first day of school, August 29,  look for your new attendance magnet, as well as a magnet with all the dates of the PTA meetings.  Membership forms will also be in the homework folder with an envelope to help you get your completed form back to school.  If your budget has been keeping you from being a member, please be sure to check the PTA membership scholarship box.  If you love PTA and would like to donate a membership to your child’s teacher, a friend, or to the scholarship fund, there is a space to designate that as well.

Teachers whose classrooms have 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% PTA membership will be rewarded with scholastic dollars which can be spent at the fall book fair.  Help your teacher earn up to $50 scholastic dollars.

Become a PTA member.  For $12 you are a part of the largest advocate group for children.  You get great discount cards.  Plus the return on your investment is impressive.  The Jason Lee PTA spent $85 per each kid last year.  Be a part of investing in the students at Jason Lee Elementary, and advocating for children throughout the USA.

Tri-Cities Rocks

IMAG9128-1Have you happened upon a brightly painted rock while you’ve been out and about?  Did it make you smile?  Did you pick it up?  Did you keep it?  Did you take a picture of it?  Did you hide it somewhere else?

Tri-Cities Rocks has a Facebook page and encourages people to paint and hide rocks.  Their goal is “to encourage creativity and joy throughout Tri-Cities…”  When you find a rock, take a picture and post it to the Tri-Cities Rocks Facebook page.  You may keep the rock or hide it for someone else to find.

IMAG9110-1Rocks may be painted using a variety of mediums, but a favorite is acrylic paint.  We’ve experimented with nail polish, sharpie, and melted crayons.  To make it weather proof, spray the painted rock with a clear spray paint to seal the design.  Be sure to label the rocks on the bottom, so people know to check out the Facebook page and post pictures.  An easy way to label your rocks is to print out a Tri-Cities Rocks label and Mod-Podge it to the bottom of the painted rock.

Spread some smiles.  Paint a rock or twelve and hide them for people out and about to find.  🙂
