Send Us Your Grant Applications

The Eastlake High School PTSA sets aside funds each year to provide for specific needs in the Eastlake school community.  Eastlake teachers and staff, as well as students and 
 
parents (on behalf of a school-sponsored club) can apply for any amount deemed appropriate to support fundraising efforts for a need, project or activity.  A committee of Eastlake parents reviews each grant and makes recommendations to the PTSA board, which gives final approval.  Applications are due in mid-October, and notifications are made by mid-November. Grants in past years have paid for science and PE equipment, Shakespeare workshops, band gear, a kiln and display case for the art department, and a 3D printer.  What can the Eastlake PTSA help you do? 
  

 

Let's Play JEOPARDY!

 

Answer: PTSA General Membership Meeting
     Question: How do I get the best parking on Curriculum Night this Wednesday?
          Daily Double:  Plus FOOD!?

 

Wednesday, Sept. 27 is not just Curriculum Night -- it's the PTSA's first General Membership Meeting (GMM) of the year! Arrive around 6 pm to:
  • nab an up-close parking spot  
  • grab a bite (pulled-pork sandwiches, hot dogs, Zeek's pizza and Ben & Jerry's ice cream!)
  • peruse our information tables in the foyer for PTSA membership, volunteer opportunities and more! 
Our meeting starts at 6 pm in the Upper Commons: meet our Board of Directors, vote to approve our budget and standing rules, review our financial status, and hear a quick update on what we've been doing during the first weeks of school.  Finally, a Wolf Chat with Principal Chris Bede will follow the business portion of our meeting (while everyone outside is looking for parking...just sayin').  At 7 pm, you'll be off to meet your student's teachers at Curriculum Night!

Answer: JOIN!
     Question: What's the EASIEST way to support the PTSA?
          Daily Double:  Join AND Pass the Hat!

 

Joining the EHS PTSA says that you support its mission and goals.  It's that simple!  One of the goals of our PTSA is to reach 100 percent membership: one parent member per student.  (Hint: Family memberships help us get there faster!)  

What's in it for YOU?  Quite a lot, actually! 

  • Lots of money-saving benefits offered by companies such as Hertz/Avis/Budget, MetLife, Quicken Loans, TeenSafe, Great Wolf Lodge, Silverwood and Wild Waves theme parks, FedEx Office, and much more.  Check them all out!   [National PTA Benefits]    [Washington State PTA benefits]  

  • Access to our members-only online student directory, which will be updated for 2017-2018 in October after all student information is verified through LWSD and provided to the PTSA to be formatted to our online system.

What's "Pass the Hat"?  It's the PTSA's annual straight-donation fundraiser that sets the tone for what the PTSA can do for Eastlake this year.  All donations, large or small, make a difference!  This year's goal is $14,500, and most of the funds go toward our Grants program.  Check out the video below to see what was accomplished with these funds last year!  

     Click here to join (or the button above) and pay online using PayPal (no PayPal account required),
     or print a membership form and pay by check (to EHS PTSA) at the school.  If you already joined
     when you completed the online Back-to-School packet, you're good to go!  (And THANK YOU!)

Thanks for playing Jeopardy!  And thanks to everyone for supporting the PTSA, in every way!

Here's Why...

Watch how your support to the EHS PTSA impacted our students

Let's Wrap Up Business

If your student was not able to attend their Back-to-Business day, you can still take care of most items online.  Click the Back to School Business graphic below to complete the PTSA online packet.  

 

For additional back-to-school business, much of which is completed using LWSD's Parent Access portal, refer to the checklist below for items such as sports fees, parking applications and permits, ASB cards, and more.
