OVPTA seeks the future of PTA Leadership!! We're sad to see a lot of our current volunteers graduating soon - are you ready to step in and give back to OV by joining the PTA Board? We want to ensure that all your favorite OV activities continue on!

Volunteering on the PTA Board is a great way to get to know your OV community and be a part of making OV the amazing place we love so much!! Our Board meets monthly and is supportive and friendly!! We can usually arrange childcare so you can attend a meeting, and we usually offer a virtual meeting option, if you just can't make it in person. We want to make it easy to be a part of the Board - so let us know what you need!

Please join us for a casual get-together on Wednesday, May 1st 6:30pm at Location TBD. Anyone who is considering a PTA Board position next year can come and hang out and ask questions of the current Board members. We hope to see you there!

We're looking to fill the following Board positions: Co-President, Co-Treasurer, Co-Fundraising Director, Co-Activities Director, and Co-Enrichment Director. Click here to see what positions you can help with! If you have any questions, please reach out to Andrea and Chad at president@ovpta.org and we're happy to chat!

Art Committee Wants Your Opinion!

Have you heard about Olympic View Elementary’s exciting proposal to create land acknowledgment art work in the cafeteria? The proposed artwork will honor the Duwamish People (dxʷdəwʔabš), Muckleshoot Nation (bəqəlšuł) , Snoqualmie Nation (sdukʷalbixʷ), and Suquamish Nation (xʷsəq̓ʷəb) whose ancestral lands our school occupies.

We want your feedback!
Learn more about the proposal and help us shape this project by sharing your thoughts in our brief feedback poll: Land Acknowledgement Art Project

OVPTA Surplus Grants for 2023-2024!
The PTA Board decided that we can fund some surplus grants this year!

Do you have an idea that supports the OVPTA mission and goals, but you need funds to make it happen? The PTA has designated up to $20,000 to be spent on projects executed by our OV community members. That means YOU, our OV staff and our OV families, can submit a proposal for a project you’ll spearhead! In past years, these mini-grants have funded classroom books, equipment upgrades, outdoor projects, and end of year activities. We’ll be trying to prioritize projects that benefit the most OV students and have longevity, but don’t be afraid to submit a proposal for something outside-the-box! Does it make OV even more amazing than it already is? Let’s hear it! We’ll collect proposals, ask for PTA membership input, and the PTA Board will approve some (but not all) proposals each month until the end of the year, or we reach our spending limit. You can find more details and fill out your proposal here: Surplus Grants.

Don’t be intimidated by the proposal, it is just our process to get the information, it does not have to be a professional-looking grant!

The PTA Board approved 2 surplus grants at our February Board Meeting and 2 surplus grants at the March General Membership Meeting.

The PTA Board will vote on proposals submitted in March during our April Board meeting. Please provide feedback on those proposals here.

Please email president@ovpta.org with questions or if you’d like to submit your proposal via paper form.


Show your Eagle Spirit!! Buy Spirit Wear
We believe that OV gear builds community pride and every student should be able to show their spirit, so we have priced these shirts as low as possible. This is not intended to be a PTA fundraiser, but if we receive any money from these campaigns, we will purchase shirts to distribute to students who may not be able to afford them.
