Did You Know?
The 2019/2020 school year marks the 15th year of Newcastle Elementary School! Get involved and help us make this anniversary year amazing!
Why Support the PTSA?
The Newcastle Elementary PTSA is a non-profit organization which supports the children and families of Newcastle Elementary School within the Issaquah School District. In partnership with families, the community, teachers, and staff we provide the funding, programs, and volunteers to enrich the educational experience for every child.

We are committed to:

  1. Recruiting a broad-reaching and diverse membership.
  2. Helping to close gaps to deliver a well-rounded and exceptional educational experience for every child.
  3. Creating a sense of community and shared purpose amongst families, children, and staff.
  4. Ensuring an enduring and deep pool of volunteers and board members.

Did you know that the PTSA provides the funding for:

  • Additional classroom Educational Assistant support (beyond what the District provides)
  • The monthly Art Curriculum, including the teachers, for every classroom
  • The After School Math Assistance Program
  • Family enrichment events like the Costume Carnival, Science Fair, and Multicultural Night
  • Educational enrichment events like the Geography Bee, Spelling Bee, and Math Adventures
  • Teacher and Grade Level allotments for things like additional books or supplies or special events in the classroom
  • Yearbooks, Gift-A-Book, YMCA at Recess, Robotics
  • And so much more! Including a new and improved expanded playground and outdoor classroom space brought to us by the generosity of Newcastle parents at the 2019 PTSA Auction!

The cost of this support is approximately $300 per Newcastle student so we need EVERY FAMILY to join the PTSA to help us make this happen.

Together we can enrich the educational experience for every family at Newcastle!
