This month we are excited to introduce a statewide essay contest that gives our students an opportunity to write about a male role model that has had a profound impact on their life. Every student that would like to participate is welcome to submit their essay to the PTA Mailbox by Monday, February 27th.
All men involved in a child’s life– fathers, uncles, grandpas, brothers, step-fathers, mentors, neighbors, pastors, coaches and friends – impact the children they care about. Research clearly shows that male involvement positively influences academic success at all levels of schooling–preschool through college! These essays, from a student’s perspective, will serve to inspire positive male engagement.
To enter, pick up the application instructions from the information rack in front of the main office. All entries received by February 27th will be submitted by Alki PTA to WA State PTA. Statewide Awards will be presented at the 2017 WSPTA Convention and ALL submissions will receive recognition at Alki during the month of March!
