WSPTA FOCUS DAY 2015—Rally in Olympia!

Monday, January 19, 2015 – MLK Day no school

Focus Day is Monday, January 19, 2015 and provides members of Washington State PTA, the largest child advocacy organization in Washington State, the opportunity to Stand Up, Speak Up and Show Up because your voice matters for the 1.58 million children of Washington State.  Please plan to join us in Olympia on Focus Day to meet with your legislators to tell them why our Top 5 and supported issues are important for your child, the children in your community, and all children across our state. Together we can make a difference for all children.

Whether or not you’re able to attend Focus Day, we encourage you to also complete this short survey to make a postcard that will be hand-delivered to your legislators, letting them know that fully funding education is top priority:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FocusDay2015.  (As a part of the survey you will be prompted to pick your legislative district. Madison is in the 34th District with Senator Nelson, Representative Cody, and Representative Fitzgibbon.) At the end of the survey, you’ll be asked to indicate whether you’re planning to attend Focus Day.

If you are interested in carpooling or riding a bus from West Seattle (if available), please fill out this form by January 9th.
