Welcome to the Suquamish Elementary PTA!

Happy Fall!

As we move through the month of October, I hope you are enjoying the changing colors, brisk days, and fall activities. For my family, this season means playing football in the backyard, going to the pumpkin patch, and eating chili and cornbread.

What are some of your family's favorite fall activities and traditions? Please share them with us via email or on Facebook, where you just might inspire others to try something new or begin a new family tradition!

October at Suquamish Elementary means several events are just around the corner. I hope you'll take the time to enjoy one or more of them with your children and family.

Best wishes for a lovely fall season, and I hope to see you at school or one of our fall events!

Crystal Thornell

Suquamish PTA President

* The Book Fair will close during unfilled time slots, so if you have the time, please help! Can you be a cashier for an hour or two, help set up, or clean up? Each shift earns volunteers 5 Scholastic Bucks! (This is a great time to get a head start on holiday gifts.) Check available times and sign up here!

October Staff Appreciation - Thurs, Oct. 25

Every month we treat our amazing staff to show our appreciation for all they do for our children. For October, we're providing some "grab n' go" snacks during conferences on Thursday, October 25. Can you help out by bringing a food item? See what others are bringing and sign up to bring your item here. Items can be brought any time next Mon-Thu morning. Thank you for supporting your child's teachers and staff!


We have several fundraisers lined up this year, each chosen to provide meaningful purchase and gift opportunities for you while also supporting student programs at our school.

Square 1 Art

We are participating in Square 1 Art once again! This year we're offering it earlier for you to order student-art customized as gifts for the holidays in addition to birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, or just because! The children have completed their artwork and order packets will be arriving soon. Orders will be due on or before Friday, November 2. This is a firm deadline so that we can receive items before students are released for winter break.


BoxTops is a simple but effective fundraiser for us every year. Every BoxTop you turn in brings in 10 cents for our school. This may not sound like much, but it all adds up. If everyone in the school brought in just 10 BoxTops, we’d raise over $400! Turn them in to your child’s teacher or in the mailbox outside the main office by Friday, November 2.
