About the Shoreline Schools Holiday Baskets Event!
“Holiday Baskets” Food, Toys, & Teen Gifts is the combined efforts of the Shoreline PTA Council, Shoreline Fire Department, Hopelink, Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park, the City of Shoreline, and Dale Turner Family YMCA to provide holiday food and gift support to Shoreline School District families in circumstances that make it challenging to provide for their children. The Holiday Baskets program typically supports around 500 families. The Shoreline PTA Council coordinates a food drive and collection of teen gift cards with all Shoreline Schools. Toys are collected by the Shoreline Fire Department.
HOLIDAY BASKETS DISTRIBUTION DAY IS SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14 @ KELLOGG MIDDLE SCHOOL.
The 2019 donation drive is being held from December 2 - 13. Shorewood is collecting paper towels and peanut butter ! Donations of other nonperishable food and teen gift cards are also accepted. Items should be brought to your student's SAS class, and gift cards can be delivered to the office to go into the PTA box. Thank you for your support. More details can be found on the Shoreline PTA Council webpage:
SHARE THE SHOREWOOD EXPERIENCE
Can you make a donation to help more students share in the Shorewood Experience?
Going to High School and feeling part of the community is a proven strategy for preventing students from dropping out of school. The costs for being part of the community can be great for those who cannot even afford the basics.
These costs include classroom fees, instrument rentals, dance tickets, theater tickets, caps and gowns, senior spree, yearbooks for seniors and so much more.
All donations make a difference in the life of a local student - $5, $10, $25, $100. Please support our Shorewood students! Thank you!!!
To volunteer - for any SW PTSA event or bring in occasional treats for the staff - simply send an email to: email@example.com. In the message, include your name and the year your youngest child at Shorewood will graduate. You will receive occasional emails asking for volunteers and you can respond as you wish.
Parent/ guardians are invited to the monthly PTSA/ Principal Coffees.
The Coffees (please bring your own coffee!) last about an hour and are held in the Library Conference Room from 8:00 - 8:30 a.m.. We sometimes have an agenda and other times have a conversation based on parent questions. Attendees should sign in at the office upon entering the building. The 2019-20
schedule is posted on the calendar page.

FOREFRONT SUICIDE PREVENTION PROGRAM
Meeting November 20th 7 p.m. @ Shorecrest!
Shorewood PTSA partnered with the Shoreline School District and the University of Washington to bring this comprehensive suicide prevention program to our high school, starting in the 2017-18 school year.
Forefront in the Schools (FIS) supports Washington high schools in implementing a comprehensive and sustainable approach to mental health promotion and suicide prevention. Through engagement by multi-disciplinary teams, on-going training and consultation, each school is able to transform its school climate and practices to reduce student risk for suicide. The length of the program is three years.
The Works shop is open all school-year round on Wednesdays from 6:00-8:30 at our NEW! Shoreline Center location. The entrance is located at 18560 1st Ave NE, facing the soccer field in Shoreline! Operated by Shoreline PTA Council , this community resource is available to all of Shoreline’s students regardless of need or family income.
Prom Shop is an additional resource of The Works that offers our tweens and teens a wide selection of formal and semi-formal wear, shoes, jewelry and accessories for guys and girls. We have appropriate clothing for orchestra and band concert attire, Homecoming and Prom as well as special occasions, like weddings, church, graduation, school music performances, etc.
Time to clean your closets?
Donations of any of these clothing items would be gratefully accepted, most especially costume jewelry, men’s clothing and shoes. We also accept other kids clothes, coats, clean socks and underwear, and hygiene products throughout the year.
**New! Use this handy online form to request to volunteer at The WORKS!** Note that the link goes to an external website hosted by secure.lglforms.com.
The WORKS is run by a committee of PTA volunteers representing many different schools throughout the Shoreline School District. They are supported each Wednesday by volunteers from local PTA units. Each local unit signs up to assist 2-3 Wednesdays during the school year. For this year’s schedule see Local PTA Schedule (updated 9.28.19).
PTA volunteers must read and agree to the Volunteer Guidelines before volunteering on site at The WORKS. A Volunteer Agreement must be filled out, signed and turned in the first time one volunteers each year. You can contact the Volunteer Coordinator to confirm you have an agreement filed for the current year.

There is limited space available on Wednesdays and teens must make arrangements ahead of time by contacting the Volunteer Coordinator - Jill Steinberg, firstname.lastname@example.org.
