August 19 2019 General Meeting & Back-to-School Backpack Drive

You’re all invited to join us at our upcoming August General Meeting where we will not only provide a lovely array of Teavana teas for you to enjoy during the meeting (courtesy of our friendly neighborhood Starbucks here in the South End, thanks to Store Manager Larissa Yuhasz and her team!) but we also have two fantastic guest speakers joining us this month:

Dan Enbysk from Earth Corps will give updates on current projects, and a representative from the Health Department will tell us about a Tacoma Creates initiative here in the South End.

We’re also looking forward to supporting the backpack drive at Giaudrone Middle School this year, and we will be collecting school supplies during the meeting if you’d like to contribute by bringing a donation in any amount of the following five items:

  • 24-count crayons (Crayola required at many schools)
  • #2 Ticonderoga pencils
  • Composition notebooks
  • Elmer’s glue (and/or glue sticks)
  • Erasers (pink large and regular erasers, as well as pencil toppers)

All this in addition to regular reports from our local City of Tacoma liaisons who keep us all informed and are available to address any questions and/or concerns you may have. It’s going to be a great meeting, and we hope you will join us!

Kiddos are always welcome; coloring station in the room available for all to enjoy.

Your SENCo Chair, Athena Brewer
