Kids’ Market for Racial Justice

The Kids’ Market for Racial Justice empowers kids to sell their art, food, drinks, and other creative goodies.  This event is on August 9th from 1-4pm at Little Howe Park.  All money raised will go towards the Black Lives Matter Movement, specifically King County Equity Now.  The first Market, which was held in July, raised over $2,000!!!! Additionally, Zeeks Pizza is sponsoring and matching 200$ of donations and there will be the Eden Hill Milkshake truck present for the first hour!
This is an incredible and tangible way for the Queen Anne community to come together in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and shows young kids that they can play a role in Social Change.  Social distancing will be enforced.  Masks are required and booths will be at least 6 feet apart. Sign Up Here

 

Coe PTA Welcomes You

Hello and welcome Coe Elementary families and caregivers.

Your PTA stands by its commitment to support our students and educators and will do its best to make the 2020-2021 school year a great one for all.

As news from Superintendent Denise Juneau sets the course of starting the school year remotely, Coe PTA intends to continue its mission, act within state parameters to ensure the health and safety of our community, and strive for new and creative ways to support a meaningful learning experience for students.

There is no better time than now to reach out to us with questions you might have about the PTA (email president.coepta@gmail.com) and ways you can get involved (click here).  Do you see a need not being addressed?  Please know your voice matters and we want to hear from you.

If there is one thing we’ve learned these past few months, it’s that we are all in this together.

Be Safe. Be Kind. Be Coe.

Nicole Tromble, PTA Co-President

Anti-Racism Resources

 

Coe’s school counselor, Ms. Kaloper, has shared this interactive page where every object in the room is a clickable link to a video or a read-aloud book.

These are wonderful resources and are age-appropriate, though some are better suited for older children than younger ones.  You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with them first and then share them with your family.

The Coe PTA has also been provided with a great list of anti-racism resources (books and videos) from that Coe teachers are using to start conversations with students and families. Resources are identified for both children and adults.
