MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear Sakai Families,
Thank you so much for your participation in our family nights last week! We really appreciate your partnership making the start of this year a success.
This Friday, October 1st, will start our annual school fundraiser, the COHO Run. We are excited to announce that this year's COHO Run will conclude with a run for kids on October 22nd at the Woodward track. 
Funds raised will help support enrichment and educational resources such as teacher grants, grade-level assemblies, classroom and teacher supplies, subscriptions, educational programs, and community events/parent resources. Your PTO is committed to funding experiences and events to foster a strong sense of engagement and community among all. Our goal is to collectively raise $70,000 (about $145.00 per student), though donations of any amount are gratefully accepted.  
Also, these additional awards will be given:
●    Most Spirited Award for top 5th and top 6th grade class will enjoy a pajama day with hot cocoa
●    Extra recess for the top 5th and 6th grade class for most earnings
●    Entry into a weekly drawing for gift cards from local businesses
●    School-wide Hogwarts celebration for 100% participation
I would like to reiterate that we understand these past few years have been difficult financially for so many of us. We truly are grateful for any financial support.
Look for more information coming this week from our amazing PTO on how to sign up and contribute to our COHO Run!
I want to give a HUGE thank you to our PTO Board-Brandi, Elias, Kristen, and Kelly. Also, thank you to Megan for organizing the COHO Run event. We truly could not do it without you all!
I hope you have a wonderful week, Sakai!

COUNSELOR'S CORNER
Washington State Healthy Youth Survey 2021
Our district is participating in the Washington State 2021 Healthy Youth Survey. This survey will be administered to 6th graders only on Monday, October 25th in their science classes.
The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance abuse, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.
Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.
Please read the Parent and Student Notificaton Letter, english version and spanish version, for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.  
Contact Beth Hebert - Health Youth Survey Coordinator if you have any questions  - 206-780-6506.
