    Annual Give and Calendar Updates
    Posted on 02/19/2019

    Hello Leschi families!

    Remember that there is no school next week for Mid-Winter Break.

    Here is our updated calendar that has changed due to the many snow days:

    PTA Meeting, 6:30 - 8:30 pm on February 25, 2019 ​​​​​​​

    African American Family Engagement Breakfast, 8:00 – 10:00 am on February 28, 2019

    Pride Assembly, 1:45 pm on March 1

    Black History Celebration, 5:30 – 7:30 pm on March 7, 2019

    Art From the Heart, March 13th (we will not have a third one this year)

    Also, a note from Jennifer Marquardt (fundraising lead):​​​​​​​

    We have about 1 month left in the 2018-19 Annual Giving Campaign and we have raised about $25,000! We are on our way to achieving our goal of $90,000. We still need to raise $65,000 which sounds daunting, but WE CAN DO IT!

    Thank you for all you have given so far. Your investment is important and appreciated...without your donation, many of the resources and activities at Leschi would not be possible.

    Leschi Elementary is a public school...there is no cost for the education our child(ren) receive. Many families are accustomed to paying for pre-school or childcare prior to entering elementary – so please consider, when deciding how much to invest through the Annual Campaign, donating one month of your former pre-school tuition.

    We are fortunate at Leschi, the education and experience our children receive is exceptional. The teachers, staff and community go above and beyond every day to provide well rounded education for the whole child – social, emotional, physical and academic learning. Unfortunately, Public Schools continue to face struggles with funding. And while it doesn’t feel right, Seattle Public Schools end up leaning on families to help close the gap and cover costs for many of the things that make our school, Leschi Elementary, great!

    Please consider giving can write a check or pay online via PayPal.

    We will end the campaign in mid-March with our last big push at the Black History Celebration on March 7th, but let’s put a dent in the goal over mid-winter break!!

    Thank you for your generosity and support,

    Jennifer Marquardt
