This committee handles the PTA membership drive at the beginning of the year. We are striving for 100% membership!

We welcome parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, extended family members, neighbors and family friends in our membership family. You can send in the Friends of Echo Lake PTA Membership form anytime! Dues for this year are $15 per individual or $25 for two adults living in the same household.

When you become a member, you
· Add your voice to the largest volunteer organization that advocates exclusively for children and education at the local, state, and national levels. More members means a stronger voice.

· Join a supportive community of parents, teachers, and other adults who care about children.

· Provide support for PTA programs that benefit all of our children like field trips, classroom grants, and student emergency packs, as well as PTA-sponsored social events like Dads and Doughnuts, Moms and Muffins, and Movie Night.

When:
October 10-November 1, 2016

Students read while raising funds for PTA-sponsored programs at Echo Lake. Students challenge themselves to see how many minutes they can read in a 3-week period, and then collect pledges in support of their efforts. Money raised will go to supporting school programs and events such as socials, teacher grants, activities, field trips and other opportunities our kids might not have without the extra funds.

Echo Lake has two main fundraisers this year: our all-school Walk-a-thon in the fall, and and an all-school Read-a-thon in the spring! These two fundraisers will limit the amount of selling our kids have to do (or their parents have to do). We hope that our two main fundraisers will bring in lots of money -- all which goes directly back to the school! There are other easy ways to support the school through buying Chinook Books and registering for Escrip and Fred Meyer rewards.
