Congratulations and Thank You to our PTA Reflections entries!
Thank you to all the 26 Challenger students who painted and composed and danced and took photographs for the PTA Reflections program this year! I know that all of Challenger has enjoyed viewing the amazing art entries displayed in the hallway for these last few weeks!
Congratulations to all the artists who have entries moving on to district level competition in January: Anya C., Medha R., Ditika G., Anushka S., David F., Nikita Q., Ishita P., Esther F., Nora A., Joanna T., Shwetha A., and Rishi V. Let's wish them good luck!
And remember that the Reflections program is a yearly event, so we hope to see lots and lots of art covering even MORE walls next year!!

Holiday Gift Barn

“Holiday Gift Barn” is a holiday gift program for Issaquah School District families in need with children ages birth-18. Like last year, Pickering Barn will become a “department store” filled with donated items for these families to do holiday shopping.
Please go to the Issaquah Food Bank website below for more details on how families in need can register to become a shopper, as well as information on donating: http://issaquahfoodbank.org/ (New this year: daycare available during the “shopping”!

Science Fair Help Needed
The PTA is currently looking for one or more folks to help with this year's Science Fair. We have a parent who would like to co-chair but is in need of some assistance as it is a much easier job with more than one person. No experience is necessary and you do not have to be a scientist!! Please contact Yvette Artman if you are interested in getting a little more involved with this program at artmans4@yahoo.com
