The Shorewood Experience - Shorewood PTSA sets up fund to help all kids participate in school community

Monday, September 5, 2016

New Shorewood High School PTSA fund will help all kids participate in school activities.

What is the Shorewood Experience? Being part of the school, having the opportunity to be involved and participate in your own community. Some examples include sports, cheer, flags, band and drama...

but it’s more than that … it’s getting to go to sporting events, dances, Senior Spree, Prom and so much more.

It is estimated to cost as much as $250 a year to participate in the community at Shorewood and that number at least doubles in Senior year.

Did you know…
  • 28% of students at Shorewood are on Free and Reduced Lunch?
  • 356 students identify as Homeless in the Shoreline School District? One of the highest percentages in King County.

What can you do to help?
Take a moment and consider a donation to the Shorewood PTSA’s Shorewood Experience fund. Your dollars will contribute to our Invest Ed funding that provides this assistance to the students who need it most.

Why Help?
Studies show that students that have stress at home regarding financial issues around covering just the basic needs, food and shelter, are more likely to drop out of high school in favor of the short-term “fix” of a minimum wage job.

A student that can be supported and engaged in their community are less likely to do this because they are more optimistic by the support provided in their community.

Students that are able to graduate high school have better outcomes for the long term and this is better for society as a whole.

Goal for 2016-17 School Year: $5,000. Donate using the Pay Pal link on the PTSA website

Thank you. As a "junior high" student at Glendale I wasn't allowed to join the tennis team because my mother couldn't pay the $2 necessary for the required insurance...
