JOIN THE SAMMAMISH HIGH SCHOOL PTSA
We invite you to join our team of parents, teachers, staff and students of Sammamish High School working together to support the health, education and welfare of all children in our community.

Don't miss the Friday Night Lights tonight! Our Totems will take on Chief Sealth High School at home. Kickoff is 7:00pm. Special entertainment will be provided by the SHS Marching Band and the SHS Cheerleaders.
Did you see the Bellevue Reporter article about Gridiron Stars to watch this season? Check it out HERE. There is special mention of seniors, Matt Castle and Kekoa Loschky, along with a few other players.
Last week, the Varsity team lost the Crossroads Cup to Interlake. On Wednesday, the SHS C-Team won against Interlake with stellar performances by Coby Akana and Ryan Hervey.
* WATER POLO
Sammamish-Interlake Boys Water Polo Varsity and Junior Varsity played Mercer Island on Monday. After nail biting games, both ended up falling short in the end. They are looking stronger with every game and utilizing their passing skills.
Next game will be an away game on Tuesday 09/20/2016 against Shorewood.
Go Get Em Boys!
* GIRLS SOCCER
Some call it Soccer. Some call it Futbol.
Either way, it is really fun to watch! And the Sammamish High School girls season is well underway.
Come support your Lady Totems this coming Tuesday at Interlake High School - start time 7:30pm.

Greetings from the Sammamish PTSA and STEPS Boards,
The Sammamish High School parent groups welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year! For those of you new to Sammamish, our school has two main parent groups, PTSA & STEPS. PTSA is part of the largest nationwide child advocacy organization. It supports staff appreciation, coordinates legislative advocacy, reflections, and outstanding educator awards. STEPS (SammamishTotems Enrichment and Program Support) is the booster club for all of Sammamish High School sports, clubs, and academics. It is also the grant making/fundraising arm of our parent groups.
The Boards this year are filled with enthusiastic volunteers who are looking forward to a year supporting each and every child at Sammamish. We welcome more involvement by parents and families here at Sammamish. We are especially looking for help with our website, staff and teacher appreciation, Class Of Committees, and other PTSA and STEPS committees. Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
We would love to have every family join the PTSA! You can click HERE and join download a membership form and drop it off in the school office anytime. The membership fee this year is unchanged from previous years, only $25 for a family (2 memberships) or $15 per individual, which includes access to our online school directory. If you would prefer to pay by credit card, we have set up a paypal link. https://www.paypal.me/SHSPTSA Be sure to mention PTSA membership in the comment box along with the name(s) and email addresses of the members joining.
STEPS provides grants to student groups and teachers at Sammamish. In the past, we have granted funds to pay for band uniforms, afterschool tutoring, AVID college field trips, equipment for classrooms, field trips, and much more. So far this year, we have granted funds to help pay for spirit t-shirts for all students, staff, and coaches. STEPS will not be holding our bi-annual auction this year. Instead we are Passing the Hat and asking for contributions to support our students and activities. Please give generously. We will be kicking off the campaign on Curriculum Night so please bring your checkbook.
We hope you will join us at our monthly meetings. The first meeting for this year will be on Monday, September 26th. The meeting starts at 6:30 with the PTSA meeting, followed by the principal, Mr. Powers (or his representative) and then we end with the STEPS meeting. Watch this space for more details. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
Together with Principal Scott Powers and all the terrific SHS staff, we will be supporting every SHS student and building pride in our Sammamish community. It is truly a place that our students can thrive and excell. Thank you for supporting PTSA and STEPS! It is going to be a great year!
