Giving Tuesday!

November 30, 2021

Let’s help our community grow even stronger on Giving Tuesday!

Give to Carnation Elementary PTSA, volunteer your talents, or show kindness. Every act of generosity counts, and each means more when we give together.

Our goal is to positively impact the lives of all students by partnering with staff, families, and community to foster a culture that values learning, builds community and advocates for all students. These challenging times have changed how we do that. We are adapting programs, using new resources, and creating new opportunities to support our community.

PTSA funds at work: $4000+ in classroom supplies, program enrichment in areas of science, art and library, new sound system in the gym, staff grants, 5th grade recognition/celebration, staff appreciation and much, much more…

We hope that in this season of gratitude and generosity you can partner with us and give what you can to help extend what is possible for our school and students.

In the Spirit of Giving Tuesday, here are opportunities thru CEPTSA to impact your community:

Coffee Chats

October 14, 2021
As part of building a strong foundation for all our students, PTSA wants to connect with you. Join members of the Board for an informal chat on Saturday, October 16 at 9:30am. Bring a coffee or preferred beverage, a chair, and meet us at the Tolt Commons weather permitting. This will be a recurring event so if you cannot make this month, no worries. This is not an official meeting but rather a chance to bring any questions, get to know fellow parents, and discuss any ideas you might have for the upcoming year.
Hope to see you there! There might even be a treat involved.

Reflections Reminder

October 12, 2021


The Reflections Art Competition is a National PTA program that starts at the school level. Each year students are invited to create original works of art around a theme. Pieces are evaluated by local artists and art educators. Top scoring works advance to the district level with the opportunity to advance to the state and even national level of the competition. And yes, we have had Carnation Elementary students compete at the national level!

The 2021 Legislative Assembly! 

October 5, 2021

Legislative Assembly – Lend your voice! The 43rd Annual Legislative Assembly will take place in a virtual format on October 23 and 24, 2021. The purpose of the legislative assembly is to determine the legislative priorities of WSPTA, to educate and mobilize advocates, and to advance WSPTA’s legislative program. At the legislative assembly, you will discover the power PTA has to advocate for every child – the whole child – regardless of race, creed, gender, or zip code. In PTA, every member has an equal voice, and your input matters a great deal to the success of our member-driven platform. CEPTSA members, with a paid membership, can attend this year’s virtual legislative assembly.…/legislative-assembly/
