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:  volunteer@shorewoodptsa.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.

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.

Program details and donation information are linked under "PROGRAMS" here. Questions? Email saveslives@shorewoodPTSA.com
