How to support the school this season

It is that time of year when holiday shopping is at the top of everyone’s list. Here is an easy way to shop and support Orcas Island Public School. The Orcas Island PTSA has a couple of suggestions:

Do you shop on Amazon? If you shop thorough smile.amazon.com 6% of purchase amount will go to the PTSA supporting the schools. Another way to support our school is to come to the Scholastic Book Fair December 8-10 in our lovely new library. The school library benefits from this sale. Part of the profit is given to buy books for the school library. The sale is open from 10:00 am to 3:30 on Tuesday through Thursday. In addition a special evening is open from 5:30-7:00. At 5:30 Santa and Mrs. Claus will read to the children as part of this event. There are crafts for the children to make in addition to the book sale.

Throughout the year Boxtops for Education are collected at the elementary. These are found on many food products and can be redeemed for cash directly to the school.

Our PTSA works hard to give back to the school community through offering roller skating, grants for teachers, and welcoming our new parents.
