Virtual Pumpkin Carving Pics Due Wed, Oct. 28!

Finish carving or decorating those pumpkins and send pictures of the finished product, along with child’s name, grade and teacher, to Bisa Meek at bisameek@gmail.com by end of day Wednesday. Teachers will choose the winners with prizes awarded for K-2nd and 3rd-5th grades.

Join Us for the Costume Carnival Boo-Thru on Fri, Oct. 30!

Put on those costumes (and masks) and drive through the bus loop for some Halloween fun. Last names beginning with A-M join us between 6 and 7pm. Last names N-Z drive through between 7 and 8pm. To help with neighborhood traffic, please enter the bus loop from the southwest direction (so you turn right into the loop). Take Coal Creek Pkwy to SE 91st St and head towards school from there. There are still opportunities to help make it a great event by donating decorations and/or your time. Get more details about what’s needed and sign up to help HERE. Contact our Chair, Peter O’Donoghue, at peteinseattle@yahoo.com with any questions.

Help us feed local families with the Spooky Spaghetti Food-Fund Drive! Donate to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank and indicate it’s for the Newcastle Elementary PTSA event. Just $20 provides 80 meals to local families!

Drop Off Boo-Thru Candy Donations (Nut-Free Please) Tue and Wed!

There will be a bin in front of the school between 12 and 5pm both days.
