☐ Become A PTSA Member:
We offer two different levels of PTA general membership. Membership must be renewed annually. Join now to become a PTA member for the 2022-2023 school year. Membership scholarships are also available. Contact the school counselor, or reach out to email@example.com, for more information.
Individual Membership: $20
Family Membership: $30
General Membership is Low Commitment!
PTA members are not required to attend any meetings, serve on a committee, or volunteer at events. But if you want to meet other parents, and get involved, we would love to meet you and could definitely use your help. There are so many ways you can participate. Learn about positions here or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does the Alcott PTSA raise funds?
Through YOUR membership and through our school fundraising events. Fundraising allows the PTA to provide events, programs, and financial grants that are not covered by local and state funding. Learn about some of the programs that we provide here.
☐ Become a Community Connector
At Alcott, we pride ourselves to C.A.R.E for each other. Our Alcott family is so special, because we have families from many different countries and cultures.
Our Community Connector families help new Alcott families to navigate school and district, as well as help understand local customs and give useful tips and tricks. They can also help with language barriers.
Community Connector Families:
- Are available by phone and/or email to communicate with families as needed.
- Help navigate school transition to Alcott and Lake Washington.
- Reach out pro-actively and follow up with new families.
- Use multilingual abilities to connect and serve as a resource for questions and assistance.

☐ Yearbooks - A Lifetime Memory
What is a Yearbook?
A yearbook is a school year in pictures. In addition to the official school photo of your child and their class, we collect photos throughout the school year from families, teachers/staff and our Alcott PTSA yearbook team. Our volunteer Yearbook Lead uses all these photos to create a memory book of the school year. Yearbooks are sent to print toward the end of April and are distributed to students who have purchased a yearbook in June.
Additionally, the yearbook supplier we use provides families the option of creating two free personalized pages, so you can be sure to have your child and their friends featured in their yearbook. This option is only available until April.
☐ Spirit Wear?
In the fall, we love to offer some fabulous Alcott Elementary Orca clothing so families and staff can show their Alcott Spirit. Unfortunately, we were unable to find a volunteer to help order and design our spirit wear last Spring. If you are a 2022-23 Alcott PTSA member and would like to help us with Spirit Wear for this school year, let us know by signing up here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a local vendor, we just need you!
