WASHINGTON STATE FAIR PASSES FOR HOMESCHOOLERS
The Washington Homeschool Organization has coordinated with the Educational Programs Department for free tickets to homeschoolers. Please precisely follow this procedure for getting tickets:
Requests must be postmarked no later than Friday, August 29th. No exceptions, please.
Please note: Educational Program staff has advised us that there is some abuse of free fair tickets. Some homeschoolers are receiving tickets from multiple sources. Please take only one ticket per student from one organization.
Purrfect Pals is a no-kill cat shelter and sanctuary in Arlington and has more than a dozen off-site adoption sites in partner pet stores in the Puget Sound area.
We need volunteers to come in for two hours once a week to clean cubbies, scoop litter pans, refresh water and food, play with cats, and talk to visitors. It’s a great way to learn more about animals, about having a “job,” about being responsible, and about giving back to your community.
Teen/parent teams are welcome at all of our locations and teens 16 and older are welcome at our Petco stores. We have off-site programs in:
We also need foster homes for raising kittens and caring for sick cats. For more information and a link to our online application, please visit our web page at www.purrfectpals.org and click on Foster Volunteer.
Young Women Empowered (Y-WE). Our leadership, mentorship and arts programs for girls are low-cost or free and would be a great addition to any homeschool curriculum. One particular program which might be of interest to the youth and families you work with is our theater intensive program called Y-WE Speak. Girls get to see professional shows at the Seattle Rep, take theater workshops, and ultimately create and perform a show of their own on the Rep stage. You can read more about this program at: http://youngwomenempowered.org/programs/speak/
I wanted to let you and your staff know that Young Women Empowered (Y-WE) is offering two free sample events at Seattle Rep for ANY girl (ages 12+) who wants to see a free professional show, take a free amazing workshop, and learn about the programs Y-WE offers. Girls do not have to sign up for Y-WE if they attend and they will not be heavily recruited. It's just an opportunity for them to check it out and for us to spread the love and resources we have to offer with the greater community! Some other youth orgs are bringing groups of their girls as a field trip. If you know girls or staff who would like to attend, please pass this event link along to them: http://youngwomenempowered.org/events-2/upcoming-events/
I would be happy to reach out directly to theater teachers and anyone else within the school whom you think would be a good contact for this opportunity.
You can also RSVP individually or as a group by using this link: https://youngwomenempowered.wufoo.com/forms/ywe-speak-2013-taster-rsvp-form/

More than half of all kindergartners in our state are entering school without the social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills they need to be successful. Research shows that those who start behind often stay behind. The good news is that reading with kids on a regular basis can make a real difference. That's why we are inviting you to become a Volunteer Reader for United Way of King County.
We're looking for friendly, responsible people to read with young kids—one-on-one (not group reading)—at select sites throughout King County. Volunteers are needed during weekday daytime hours, and need to be at least 16 years old. By committing to read 1 hour a week for a minimum of six months, you can have a profound impact on the lives and outcomes of young children in our community.
Looking for other volunteer opportunities?
You can find this and thousands of other volunteer opportunities on the United Way of King County Volunteer Center website: www.uwkc.org/volunteer. You can tailor your search by the age range of the volunteer.
