At the beginning of the Session, the PTA called on its members to "Stand Up, Speak Up, and Show Up" on McCleary. This coming weekend, you will have the ability to do so in the comfort of your own community. Starting on Thursday evening, legislators from across the state will be hosting town hall meetings to discuss state issues. We need to be heard on McCleary and deliver a simple message to our legislators.
Levies are for extras, not for funding basic education. Teacher compensation is the job of the state, not the local district. We support your need to stay in Olympia until you fix this.

Remember when you go to town halls, you are helping spread the message of the PTA.When you speak, remember, you are not alone, and we are united in our efforts. Be firm, but be respectful. We understand the legislators have a tough job ahead of them. We are there to be strong for them and to help them succeed.
Stand Up, Speak Up, and Show Up this weekend!
