Homecoming Dance, Saturday, Sept. 19, 8:30pm - 11:30pm, Lindbergh High School.
The dance will take place in the Commons and cafeteria. The theme is "A Night on the Town". Students may bring other students from other schools as long as they have the appropriate forms signed off (forms available in the attendance office). Tickets will be sold starting Monday, the week of the dance. The attire is casual
Adult chaperones are needed for the BIGGEST school dance of the year! If you can help, please respond no later than Wednesday, Sept. 16, to Christina Allen, at email@example.com.

We are in immediate need for a Treasurer!!! If you have any accounting experience, and/or past PTA treasurer experience, please contact Linda Kawamura at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PTSA budget is not as intense as an elementary school PTA, or even a middle school PTSA budget. There is little to no fundraising done, but as a non-profit organization, we still need to keep our records up-to-date. Please consider helping us out!!!! Thank you!
REMINDER! The next Boosters meeting will be Thursday, September 10, 2009, 7:00pm, in the LHS Library. We are still in need of a new president (or co-presidents). Please e-mail Carrie at email@example.com, if you can help!

WEB LINKS TO ATHLETIC INFORMATION
Below is information on how to access the athletic schedules and forms that are on our district athletic web pages.
Here is the link to the forms page where we now have high school sports clearance forms (including the new head injury/concussion form we are asking middle schools to use as well) as well as all of our sport specific warning letters:
Here is the link to the sport schedules page where we post both the high school and middle school sport schedules (middle schools are on the lower half of the page):
Rather than having each school upload the forms to their own pages, schools will now link to our pages. That way, as we update the schedules or forms, the school page will be current as well.
To find these pages without the above links, you do the following:
1) Go to the Renton School District home page at www.rentonschools.us
2) In the menus near the top, just under the photo bar, click on “District Departments”
3) Scroll down to Extracurricular and click on “Activities and Athletics”
4) Once on the Activities and Athletics main page, choose the appropriate menu from the left side—Sport Schedules or Athletic Forms
We hope that this information helps. Please share it with your community.

FUNDING REVENUE - PHASE II
Last spring we got the blueprint for a world-class system
Now we need to discuss revenue streams
Please join the Seattle Council PTSA and Speaker of the House Frank Chopp as we discuss the challenges and possibilities ahead
How do we fund the schools we need and still afford our health and social programs? –
Thursday, Sept. 17, 6:45 - 8:30 p.m.
Catherine Blaine K-8, Cafeteria (In the Magnolia neighborhood) 2550 34th Ave. W., Seattle, WA 98199
42nd in spending: The way Washington funds schools hasn't been working – mainly because the state didn't have a handle on what students really need. For instance, it only funded 5 periods when kids need 6 to get into college. High school requirements didn’t align with college and employer requirements. And while Seattle kids did well on the WASL – and many taking the SAT did great – five out of six grads didn’t have the credits to get into college. In 2007, only 17 percent of Seattle Public School graduates met university entrance requirements.
Money from the state doesn’t cover what communities expect – and often falls short on transportation and overhead costs. Legislation passed last year promises to overhaul the way we fund schools – and to pay for the education kids really need. But the big debate over HOW to increase ed funding (take it from other areas or increase tax revenue) remains.
Do we need tax reform? More revenue? What are the likely proposals? What if new funding isn't secured?
Please join legislators, education leaders, parents and teachers as we discuss just what it’ll take to pay for the schools we need – without hurting our investments in health and social programs.
We hope this will be the first in a series of conversations about changing the way we think about what’s “basic” in education.
