Programs & Activities
Here are some of the programs your PTSA membership support provides at Finn Hill Middle School:
Advocacy: As part of the largest student advocacy group in the United States, we send voting delegates to both Legislative Assembly in October and Washington State PTA Convention in May to help set advocacy issues.
Alumni Scholarships: Every spring, we award three $500 scholarships to FHMS alumni graduating high school that show academic and personal excellence.
Awards: We honor exceptional teachers, staff and volunteers for their service to Finn Hill students.
Emergency Preparedness Supplies (E-Prep): We purchase supplemental supplies for our school building to keep on hand in case of an emergency.
Parent Education: We work to find engaging and timely resources to share with all Finn Hill MS families. Last year, we offered a free screening of Screenagers: The Next Chapter and had speakers present from Be SMART, a parent group that raises awareness about responsible gun storage in order to keep kids safe.
Planners for FHMS Students: We provide each Finn Hill student a planner for their school year, a tool for learning organization and time management.
School and Staff Grants: We enhance the FHMS experience for all students by providing grants for various items, including money to purchase additional library books. We also provide grants to all certificated staff to help reimburse out-of-pocket classroom expenses.
