March for Our Lives - March 24

Please read the following from our School Administrator Tim Visser:

On March 24, the March for Our Lives will begin at Cal Anderson Park and end at the Key Arena. I know some of our school families will be participating. I have been working in conjunction with lobbyists from the Washington Federation of Independent Schools and the Catholic Conference to have language in school safety legislation that includes private schools. Right now, there is nothing requiring first responders to notify private schools of events happening at state funded institutions like Shorecrest or Kellogg. There is funding being proposed for a student protecting student app that would allow students to anonymously report threats to state funded programs. Private schools are not included in the legislation. First responders have maps in their computers of state funded institutions so that they can quickly find classrooms, entrances and property accessibility. They have to look in a notebook in the trunk of their cars to retrieve the maps of our buildings. Long story short- private schools are being overlooked. I encourage your participation on the 24th. Our kids deserve the same level of protection afforded every other student in the state.

While our school community is not politically homogeneous, we state in our mission statement that we work in partnership with families and churches to challenge students to live as dynamic and transforming influences for the glory of God. Advocating for student safety and school safety by asking our representatives in the state and local government not to forget about private schools is certainly part of that mission.
Tuition Assistance Applications

Reminder, due date for current families to submit their SSS TA application and the SCS Tuition Assistance Request forms together with their 2017 taxes and W-2's is March 31, 2018. Please contact Barb Newbry with any questions.
Costume Assistance Needed for Musical

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT is in need of a person or team of people who can assist with COSTUMES. Some sewing and costume construction may be necessary. Mostly we are looking for assistance in finding and altering small costume pieces. Please contact Sam Vance for more information.  vancearts@gmail.com  or  425-533-6156
Jog-a-thon Kickoff!
Attention Elementary Families!

We sent home a letter and emailed you the link to this year's Jog-a-thon site on Monday. If you didn't see either of those items, be sure to let Michelle or Jonathan know.

If you have any questions about the Jog-a-thon, or would like to volunteer, you can connect with Michelle . If you have any issues registering with the RallyUp site, or collecting pledges, let Jonathan know .

Mad Dawgz Jr (the same great tasting dogs from a hot plate instead of a cart) and drinks will be available for a reasonable price. Feel free to also bring snacks or drinks to share, but it isn’t required. The fun and games will begin at 7:00 pm and wrap up by 10:00 pm. And, did we mention? It’s FREE! An RSVP is always appreciated.

When: March 23rd, 7pm-10pm
Who: 6-12th graders and parents. Parental attendance is not required. Please, no siblings younger than 6th grade.
Why: Games are fun, to be together, and to turn off our screens!

Cleaning Help!

While we look for a new janitor, we are in need of volunteers willing to roll up their sleeves to help create a clean environment at school. If you love to clean this is an easy way to gain volunteer hours. We're looking for parents to vacuum and sweep floors, clean bathrooms, and wipe down desks. Time commitment and hours are flexible.

Please contact Paul Hopkins - phopkins@shorelinechristian.org.
Submit Your Volunteer Hours

Thank you to all our fabulous parents who have supported our school by completed service hours for this school year.  The deadline for service hours is Friday, April 6th

Please remember to submit your volunteer hours if you haven't already by emailing volunteer@shorelinechristian.org . Still need hours? Contact Michelle for suggestions or upcoming service opportunities.
