Collins PTA General Fundraiser
Our fall fundraiser kicks off on September 16th and will run through September 30th. We are doing a catalog and cookie dough fundraiser this year. There are lots of prizes for the kiddos to earn, including a Blitz party. Surprise #BFF Buddies are milestone instant prizes kids will get when 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 items are sold. Expect the fundraising packet to go home with your child on September 16th. This fundraiser will make it possible for PTA to offer events and programs throughout the school year and keep our PTA in business.
Emergency Kits are a comfort for your child if there is ever an emergency where your student needs to stay at school longer than usual. The PTA sells the kits for a nominal fee as a service to Collins families. These kits are on sale until September 23rd. You may provide a homemade kit for your child if you wish. We encourage you to write your student a letter of comfort to be included in the emergency kit. Cash or check accepted. Make checks payable to Collins PTA.
Reflections is a National PTA, Washington State PTA and Collins PTA art competition. Students create their own original piece of art based on their interpretation of a given theme. The theme for 2019-2020 school year is "Look Within". Judging takes place at four levels: Collins Elementary, FP Council (district) level, WSPTA (Washington State PTA) and finally NPT (National PTA) level. Students cannot have help from a teacher or parent. There are seven art categories, each with its own guidelines: Visual Arts, 3D Visual Arts, Music Composition, Film Production, Photography, Dance Choreography and Literature. An interest form will be sent out by September 20th. Deadline for submissions will be October 21st. Late submissions may not be judged but would be displayed at the Reflections Celebration Night (date TBA).
