Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!
We know that start of school is a busy time with a fair share of information overload. We've put together a single form where you can pay your student's fees and fill in your directory information. You can also join the PTSA or share your volunteer interests.
Please take a few minutes to complete the QAE Back-to-School Form. It only needs to be done once per family. Please complete the form by Friday, September 14th. Questions? Contact the PTSA at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's some more details what's included on the form:
Student Directory Information
We'll ask for parent names and contact information. The QAE PTSA uses email addresses collected on this form to build the lists for the classroom coordinator emails as well as teacher, specialist, school and PTSA announcements, including our weekly newsletter, The Rocket Reader.
To protect your privacy, the school and PTSA maintain separate databases. As such, the PTSA does not have access to the information you provide to Seattle Public Schools. To be included in the directory (all school or classroom only), you must complete and submit the online form.
The information in the directory will be shared exclusively within the school community, and commercial use of the information is strictly prohibited.
Pay Your Student Fees
The total is $150 per student. For the convenience of our families, the PTSA collects this money for the school and passes along the funds.
At the beginning of each school year, instead of giving families a supply list to fulfill, our teachers ask for a $50 classroom supplies fee to allow our teachers to buy appropriate classroom supplies throughout the year, as they need them.
In addition to the classroom supply fee, there is a $100 technology fee to cover the cost of the QAE One to the World Student Device Program.
To inquire about a Student Fee Scholarship, read the FAQ or speak with Principal Roy. No QAE student shall be denied access to iPads due to an inability to pay technology fees. If financial assistance is needed, please contact Ms. Roy by phone (206-252-2480) or email (email@example.com) with full confidentiality guaranteed.

Back-to-School Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few commonly asked questions as we begin the school year. Can't find an answer? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to help.
Seattle Public School Welcome Packet and Resources
On the first day of school, your child will receive a SPS Welcome Packet with forms (FERPA, Media Release, Medicine, Health, etc.) that will need to be filled in and returned to the school. New this year: in order to save time, money and trees, SPS is asking that we simply link to documents and resources that don't have to be signed and returned.
Browse through the resources below or head to the main SPS site for the mother lode (and translations of many of the pages).
