THANK YOU to all the wonderful volunteers who have helped me serve over 30,000 lunches this year!

I will be looking for volunteers for the 2016-17 school year.  If you’d like to join the Lunch Bunch, please contact the volunteer coordinator.  Thank you!

As we near the end of the school year, it is important to keep your child’s lunch account with a positive balance.  Negative balance accounts will have report card held until balances are paid. If you would like to know your child’s balance, give me a call or send a note or email.  Account balances will forward to next year and 5th graders’ balances will forward to middle school as long as it is a Seattle Public School.

The John Hay Partners is conducting a survey to gauge how your child(ren) are enjoying the before and after school activities. This survey has seven questions and should only take a few minutes to complete. For families who did not participate in before and/or after-school activities this year, Question #6 asks if there is a class you'd like to see next Fall. 

Please note: Bell times for Fall 2016 are as follow: Start time at 9:35 AM and end time at 3:45 PM. 
Before school activities normally start an hour before start time and after school activities usually end an hour to an hour and 15 minutes after end time.

Please contact Dina Ringer with any specific questions or concerns. 

We value your input and appreciate you taking this survey.
Thank ...

Recently we have seen an increase in cars parking in the wrong direction during pick-up and drop-off. Please take the time to turn around before parking outside Kids Co. Parking backwards in this way can make it difficult for the driver to see families and other cars. For the safety of all of our children, please drive slowly and park cautiously when picking up and dropping off at Kids Co.
