FIESTA !   FIESTA — familias de Shuksan juntas

Starting Spring 2021, there is a new family group at Shuksan called, “FiestaFamilies at Shuksan Together.” We are starting with small initiatives to promote a sense of belonging for all families at Shuksan.


We see a need for families to connect, and we are trying to figure out how to do that in a way that meets Shuksan’s needs. This is not your typical PTA Club that may focus on fundraising.



A partir de la primavera de 2021, hay un nuevo grupo familiar en Shuksan llamado, “FiestaFamilias de Shuksan Juntas”. Estamos empezando con pequeñas iniciativas para promover un sentido de pertenencia para todas las familias en Shuksan.


Vemos la necesidad de que las familias se relacionen, y estamos tratando de averiguar cómo hacerlo de una manera que satisfaga las necesidades de Shuksan. Este no es el típico club de PTA que puede centrarse en la recaudación de fondos.


Values and Hopes

  • Create low-barrier, inclusive ways for families to meet one another and for students to have unstructured time to connect
  • Find ways for families to team up with SMS
  • Create even more belonging so even more students will say, “I love going to school!”
  • Connect families with the information they want and need and with school resources and staff


Valores y esperanzas

  • Crear formas inclusivas y de pocos obstáculos para que las familias se conozcan entre sí y para que los estudiantes tengan tiempo no estructurado para relacionarse.
  • Encuentra formas de asociarte con SMS.
  • Crear aún más pertenencia para que más estudiantes digan: “¡Me encanta ir a la escuela!”.
  • Relacionar a las familias con la información que quieren y necesitan y con los recursos y el personal de la escuela.
