It’s time for the 2010 Queen Anne Elementary Fund Drive! This is your opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to your children’s education at QAE. This week you will receive a letter from the PTSA requesting a donation. The funds donated by our families will help supplement what is covered by the school district and make Queen Anne Elementary a stronger learning environment. Our fundraising goal for the school year is $90,000 and our hope is to raise the majority (if not all) of this money now so that our children can benefit for the rest of this school year and the staff has the resources to build a truly leading edge, innovative and world class learning environment for them.
Please watch your mail and return your donation in the enclosed envelope no later than December 1, 2010. Keep in mind that all donations are 100% tax deductible and may be eligible for company matching.
If you have family members or friends who would like to contribute to the QAE fund drive, please email their name and address to one of us and we will add them to our mailing list.
Thanks in advance for your support and generosity!

Families invited to share thoughts on Year 2
of Student Assignment Transition Plan
Regional meetings November 4-16
CENTRAL REGION SCHOOLS
Our regional meeting is scheduled for:
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15
6:30-8 p.m. at Garfield High School
400 23rd Ave. S.
(However, families are welcome to attend any of the meetings noted below)
In 2009, the Seattle School Board approved a New Student Assignment Plan, school attendance area boundaries and a Transition Plan for 2010-11, the first year of implementation. The plan responds to what families requested during more than two years of extensive community engagement – a plan that is predictable, equitable and easy to understand.
Work has begun to create the Transition Plan for 2011-12, which will set out rules for the continued phasing in of the New Student Assignment Plan. Seattle Public Schools is seeking input from families, staff and community members to help shape the Transition Plan. A series of regional and drop-in meetings are planned. A recommended Transition Plan for 2011-12 will be presented to the School Board in January.
Among the topics included in the discussion will be development of geographic zones for option schools. The board will also be considering, among other topics, how the Transition Plan for next year will address non-attendance area kindergarten siblings; schools with over or under capacity enrollment; transition tiebreakers; transportation and high school open choice seats.
Regional meetings will include a presentation, question-and-answer session, discussion and opportunity to provide feedback. Interpretation services will be provided at each of the meetings, and light refreshments will be served. Child care will not be available, but books and drawing and coloring supplies will be provided. For additional information, visit the “Get Involved” page at www.seattleschools.org.

Sometimes in all the excitement of learning, our littlest students get too enthralled to make it to the potty. If you have some underwear and pants that you might be willing to donate to the office for these little misadventures, it would be much appreciated. (Elastic waisted are preferable.) Thanks in advance for your help.
