North City Elementary portables, 816 NE 190th St, Shoreline, WA 98155
The Shoreline PTA council partners with other local PTA’s to provide clothing assistance to Shoreline students. Highland Terrace PTA is scheduled to sort clothing.
Each school is asked to provide 4 volunteers. Join us for a fun community event where we sort clothing. This service means so much to families experiencing economic hardship, giving them an opportunity for their children & teens to “shop” for gently used, stylish clothing, receive new under garments, socks & hygiene products.
Our annual Move-A-Thon is our only ASB fundraiser. Highland Terrace uses the proceeds to fund assemblies, field trips, scholarships, special events & projects. Help your student start getting lap sponsors!
Volunteers Needed for the Move-A-Thon
Can you volunteer to help punch lap cards, manage water stations, & oversee parking lot safety as the kids MOVE around the school? If you can volunteer 1:30 – 3 PM (day of event, 10/26) please email email@example.com.
Our children’s teachers need our help! Several need room parents to help coordinate classroom celebrations, one staff luncheon, teacher appreciation week activities, etc. With several room parents, the load is light. Please contact Nicolle Rutherford Nicolle.firstname.lastname@example.org and your classroom teacher if you are interested in helping. Thank you!
Many people are surprised to learn that their bright child’s unique “quirks” are actually well-studied social & emotional behavior patterns that appear across large populations of highly intelligent children. Whether it’s refusing to wear shirts with buttons or tags, overreacting to the slightest criticism, gravitating towards adults and older children, forgetting to turn in their homework, trouble with handwriting, anxiety about trying something new, or preferring a book to a party, these and many other perplexing behaviors are common in this population. Learn what’s normal, what to expect as they grow, and why genuine challenge is vitally important for kids’ social and emotional development, as well as developing their academic talents, from the preschool and elementary years all the way to high school and beyond.

Mark your calendars for the PTA Ice Cream Social & General Membership Meeting. Get to know us and how you can help this school year. This annual event is a fun, informal way to get to know your fellow parents.
The Back to School event is being held on Saturday, August 26 at Ridgecrest Elementary and The WORKS is in need of volunteers to help with event preparation in the days leading up to the event and on the day of the event. This is a wonderful community effort that last year provided over 1,000 backpacks to Shoreline students along with new underwear, socks, and hygiene kits.
Please consider signing up for one of these opportunities and help support our Shoreline community:
