Our January Ditty Bag Drive was a huge success!!
Our Jaguars collected TWENTY boxes full of toiletries...
3, 990 items!! They beat their goal of 3,000, and they are so happy about it. You may not know that this drive was the launch of a collaboration between all three QA elementary schools to help the Queen Anne Food Bank. Coe and QAE will be doing their collection drives in Spring. 

A HUGE thank you to our fabulous Student Council for coordinating this effort! And to our John Hay community for helping people in need at the Queen Anne Food Bank. For more information about this organization, please visit: https://www.qafb.org/

As the holiday season approaches, stresses and strains we might otherwise dismiss can overwhelm us.  The holiday season can place additional strain on many families in our community who are already working hard to keep their children fed, clothed, active, and hopeful. 


The purpose of the John Hay Families and Friends program is to strengthen our school community by giving all families the opportunity to:

Ask for assistance this holiday season
                           or
Offer assistance this holiday season
Please be looking for a form coming your way very shortly.  Thank you!  If you have any questions, please contact either Ms Weissenborn or Angie Harrison

From Monday 11/9 - Friday 12/4, John Hay CARES will host a Holiday Donation Drive to benefit Treehouse, a non-profit that serves Seattle foster youth. A letter will go home this week with more information, or find out more about the John Hay Elementary Cares program at the school.

All you have to do to participate is:

    • Read the letter in your child's red folder. This will explain what their class is collecting.
    • Send new & unwrapped items to school with your student, and
    • Students drop items into the classroom collection bag.
    • You may also send cash, and the CARES team will purchase items on your behalf.


Thanks for your generosity!
