Spring Note from the PTSA President

Gayle P

President's Message:

Happy Spring! I hope everyone had a nice spring break and is getting some time to enjoy the nicer weather!

I first want to give a shout out to Mr Olegario, Ms Alice, Ms Pierce, Principal Jaskot, Mr Taylor, Mr Taylor's brother, Matt, and all the teachers, staff, and parents who helped make our Peace, Love, and Safety Walk a great success. If you haven't seen any of the aerial photos yet, you should definitely check them out.  


I would also like to give a shout out too all the BF Day students for running so many laps at the Fun Run and all the volunteers who made it happen, especially Katie Lawson, Julie & Jason Bragg, Cheryl Hlavac and everyone who helped set up the course, mark tags, provide water, and cheer on all our runners! Also a shout out to our sponsors the Brooks Powers Group and Brooks Running.

Final shout out to Anisa Nun and Julietta Skoog for spearheading the Community and Culture Potluck and the Wallingford Boys and Girls Club. There was such an amazing variety of excellent food, I learned some great information from the librarian from Seattle Public Library, and the Family Works and Somali Health Board representatives provided excellent information as well!

With the school year winding down, we still have a lot of upcoming events to be excited for! First is the Final General PTSA meeting of the year on May 14. This meeting is where you get to vote on the PTSA budget for next year and elect next year's executive board. This is an important meeting so I hope to see you Monday night at 6 in the library. Childcare will be provided!

Upcoming we have the Drama Dragons performance of their original musical written by a BF Day Parent on May 25, Art Night on May 31, Village Day on June 8, and Field Day on June 15! Oh and the Solstice Parade on June 16! We keep you busy in the Spring!

That's not to mention our final fundraiser of the year, the Arty Party & Auction on June 2 at the Fremont Abbey! This is an adult only event and ticket information will be coming soon. There will be delicious food and drinks, performances from parents and staff, wonderful art, and a fabulous silent auction. It looks to be a lot of fun so mark your calendars and be on the lookout for the invitation in your mailbox!

Thank you all for a wonderful year and I hope to see you on Monday, May 14 at 6 in the library for our final meeting!
