How to get my Food Handler's Permit?
Some of our volunteer opportunities require a person with a Food Handler's Permit.  If you are planning to help assist with serving food any this year's BBQ or any PTSA event, it is a great safety training to have. Can I get my food worker card online? Yes, all local health departments offer the food worker training, test, and card online. The only authorized online training program is www.foodworkercard.wa.gov . Other websites that appear to offer a similar card online are not valid in Washington. What does a card cost?

PTSA Programs and Curriculum Enrichment Update

One of the most important things we fund with the money raised through our PTSA Family Contribution is Curriculum Enrichment. Curriculum Enrichment is bringing outside organizations into Renaissance or taking our students out into our community to enrich and enhance their education.  Three great examples of Curriculum Enrichment are the following:

Outdoor Education/NatureBridge 2016
Our wonderful Camp Chaperones and PTSA Members

The days at camp this past September were filled with classes, skits, art and leadership activities; it was an electronics-free camp experience.  Being in the rain forest means it could have rained or be misty, but it absolutely fabulously sunny and warm!  When your students returned at the end of the week they were tired from this amazing education! Above: Our PTSA Members and chaperones for Outdoor Ed/Camp.

Writers in Residence Program (WIR)

This has been an on-going enhancement since last October 2016.  A poet has been working with students for 8 weeks, helping students enhance their writing and poetry skills.

Guest Artists

Over several weeks, Renaissance students have had a guest artist come into the classroom work with and teach the students mosaics. 

We are excited on what is being planned for the 2018-19 school year! 


Submit your 2017-18 PTSA Membership Form
Each year your PTSA Membership must be renewed to support all of the incredible programs we offer at Renaissance! Guest instructors, Art Supplies, Beginning/End of Year BBQ,  Reflections, Ski Bus, Yearbook, Staff Appreciation, After School Activities, 8th Grade Commencement, All School Project, School Directory and more! 
 
Over the past 4 years Renaissance has had 100% Membership!
 
New to RSAR or returning?
If you are new to RSAR or were a PTSA Member last year, please renew your membership for 2018-19 by printing the Membership form located under Forms & Documents on this website, write a check to RSAR PTSA and BRING IT Back to Business Day.  Attend all 3 of the PTSA Membership Meetings to find out what is going on at the school!
You can also submit it to our PTSA mailbox located in the RSAR office or hand it to any one of our PTSA Board of Directors.
 

Become a PTSA member and receive member benefits like our School Directory and voting for programs at our school this year!  Attend the 3 Membership Meetings.


What does the PTSA do for you?
Are you looking forward to your hard copy of the Student Directory?  And the Online Directory? 

Are you planning to attend Back-to-Business Days?

Are you enjoying the communications through our New PTSA website and Facebook page (RSAR Families)?

Will your student participate in this year's Reflections Art Contest?

Will you bid on an auction basket at the LWSDistrict offices this holiday?

Do you have a student that may take an after-school activity such as a Foreign Language or Ski Bus?

Will you do any chaperoning for field trips or any volunteering?  (Thank you, if you already have!)

Are you excited for the upcoming Dance Performance, Spring Play and Talent Shows?

And for all of you parents of 8th graders --> this will be your last spring at Renaissance!  Are you looking forward to 8th Grade Legacy Project, Promotion and Class Party/Trip?  Don't forget: your student's Yearbook!

When you give your RSAR PTSA Parent Contribution you are contributing to fund over 30 academic enrichment programs, like the ones in the Enrichment Update article plus all of the additional programs PTSA runs (noted above) and more!

Your donation is the only annual fundraiser that RSAR PTSA will ask you participate in. It is tax deductible.
Plus, if your employer has a matching program RSAR PTSA is eligible to receive additional funds to match your cash donations and/or volunteer hours.  Contact the RSAR PTSA Treasurer for more information about contributions, donations or corporation matching.  Or if you would like to volunteer for any of our Programs, contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
