Welcome Letter From Our Co-Presidents

On behalf of the View Ridge PTA allow us to say WELCOME! 

While many things have been uncertain, please be sure that we are so glad to have you here! This will definitely be a year different than the last, and we hope that we can continue to support our school community, both virtually and creatively! This will surely be a year that requires flexibility and patience for all!  

The First Day Packet is full of information! Please return all of the Seattle School District forms to your teacher by the date listed on the top of the checklist (they will help coordinate how best to do that in our virtual world). Please note that AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT will be coming back this fall, as well as many other family activities. If you are particularly passionate about these activities, please reach out to  

Also, we have shared a planned PTA calendar, but dates and format may change as the year progresses. Thank you for your understanding and communicating what activities or support are most beneficial to your family. 

This is a very busy and exciting time of year. We want to make sure that if you have questions, please ask! The PTA is here to help, and we love talking about our school and supporting families.  

We have a lot going on here at View Ridge, and we continuously strive to support our students and community in as many ways as we can. We look forward to seeing returning families and meeting new families!  

Best wishes for a great year! 

Kelsey Danner and Casey White
