Welcome to the Kenmore Elementary PTA website!

Through the efforts of committed volunteers, Kenmore Elementary PTA is dedicated to providing support services, learning opportunities and community events to create a strong, positive educational environment and school community.

 

 

KEPTA Annual Auction is on January 27!

Do you have your 1920’s outfit ready for the auction yet? We have a team of dedicated volunteers working extremely hard to ensure a fun and successful auction. Get ready to bid on items including dinner at the Herbfarm and a night at Willows Lodge in Woodinville, a Kenmore Air seaplane flight and dinner at Daniels Broiler in Seattle and of course, one-of-a-kind art projects created by your kids.

Only a handful of tickets are left, and sales close on January 17. Buy yours now! 

Can’t make it to the auction? You can still lend your support to our biggest fundraiser of the year by donating online.

Announcing 2 NEW Committees at Kenmore Elementary: Arts Committee & School Improvement Committee

We want to keep making our school better! Please consider joining one of Kenmore Elementary PTA’s two new committees:

Arts Committee: How are Kenmore students engaging with the arts? What are we spending our designated PTA arts funds on?  Are we providing a sufficient range of artistic opportunities for our students (visual, performing, musical, etc.)? If you are interested in how the arts are playing out at our school, please join this committee to share your thoughts and preferences.

School Improvement Committee: What material changes would you like to see happening on the Kenmore Elementary campus? What’s possible (or not) to spend our fundraising dollars on? We want to hear your ideas, and will share what we know about district policies and guidelines.

If you would like to join either of these committees, please send an email to: president@kenmorepta.org 

Yearbook Photos Needed — all year long!

Kenmore parents, if you have any fun photos of students or staff at school to contribute to our yearbook, please upload them to this folder:
