PTSA Support - Progress


'Tis the Season of Giving

We are THANKFUL and humbled by your ongoing support for our Eastlake PTSA. Everything our PTSA is able to do for our students, our school, and our community is thanks to the generosity and participation of our members.  

We know, this year is another challenging year for so many, in different ways. This year, we find our PTSA is behind on both our fundraising and membership goals compared to last year (when we were fully remote) and the year prior. Our largest annual fundraiser was again modified and at reduced-capacity this year and did not generate our usual income. Therefore, we are working to make adjustments to our budget to ensure our investments in our students and our school do not exceed our income.

There are many ways you can support our Eastlake PTSA's efforts to continue to fund as much as possible; please consider one or more of these if you can: 

With gratitude and best wishes for you and your families, 
Natalie & Erika, your Eastlake PTSA Co-Presidents.

Volunteers Needed: Mid- Year Financial Review Committee  

Do you want to help your PTSA but are short on time? This may be the opportunity for you. As an incorporated non-profit, your EHS PTSA is operating according to rules and regulations determined by the IRS and our affiliation with WA State PTA. Twice yearly, we ask neutral parties to perform a review of our financial records and conduct to ensure that we are in compliance with these regulations. The mid-year review is a template-based question & answer process that takes 2-3 volunteers about 2 hours to complete. No accounting or other financial background needed! To sign up or if you need more information, please email volunteers@ehsptsa.org.

Youth Eastside Services

EHS Community--Would you like support with the challenges of heading back to school, vaping, family conflicts, substance use, stress or are you worried about a family member or friend’s drug/alcohol/vape use? If you want help and can benefit from brief drop-in counseling or consultation, you can easily connect with our Youth Eastside Services (YES) Counselor, Andrea Frost. Just use her virtual drop-in office hours on Zoom on Tuesdays or Wednesdays starting September 7th/8th. She is our Substance Abuse Prevention Intervention Specialist (PI) and is here to support you. In person office hours are to be determined at this time.

Information on how to reach Andrea can be found here and this is a short video introduction.

Community Service Spotlight

"I have learned that community service takes determination, and it is very rewarding to see the end result", says 

Maya Raghavan, who is a sophomore at EHS and has been involved in community service since middle school.

Maya currently volunteers with several local and international organizations including Water 1st International where she serves on the Youth Board. Water 1st works to help the world’s poorest countries implement and sustain community-managed projects integrating clean water supply, toilets, and hygiene education. She is also involved with Junior Asha (the youth wing of Asha for Education) to bring socio-economic change in India primarily through education. Her work with Junior Asha helps support a center for abandoned children, mostly young girls, in Eastern India.

Maya is making an impact locally through her efforts with the local chapter of Break the Outbreak (Sammamish chapter) a non-profit that donates PPE and care packages to local businesses and families impacted by the pandemic. Serving the homeless is of special interest to Maya. By volunteering with Sankara Healthcare Foundation, she helps support Teen Feed, a Seattle organization that strives to meet basic needs of local homeless and at-risk youth by providing healthy meals. Maya also assists with the Union Gospel Mission’s 200 PBJ Drive providing sandwiches to their Search and Rescue team each month. Thanks to Maya, our community and our world will be a better place. Thank you Maya for all you do.
