Spotlight on Genesee Hill Sponsor: Dr. Adrianne Cook of West Seattle Natural Medicine

Thank you, Dr. Cook!

Dr. Adrianne Cook is mom to a 2nd grader and Kindergartner here at Genesee Hill, and is one of seven providers at West Seattle Natural Medicine. We thank her for being a Den level Sponsor of Genesee Hill Elementary.  Den Level sponsor businesses provide at least $1000 of support within a school year.

West Seattle Natural Medicine Clinic provides naturopathic primary care to all ages. Dr. Cook specializes in digestive disorders, fatigue, thyroid disorders, and hormone balance. Dr. Cook says it is a pleasure living and working in such a great neighborhood community.

Thank you to our 2018-2019 Sponsors!

Community businesses also play an important role in supporting our students, staff and teachers at Genesee Hill Elementary School.  Local businesses, many affiliated or owned by parents of our students, sponsor our school with monetary and in-kind donations.  This support goes towards the budget maintained by the PTA and is a critical part of our fundraising efforts.

Check out this year’s sponsors as they will be featured on the right hand side of this website all year long (and in your printed yellow Student Directory)!  And please consider being a patron of these fine local businesses. They offer a wide range of great services.

Still want to be a sponsor but missed the Fall cutoff?  We would still love your support and can find new ways to showcase your business. Contact us:  fundraising@geneseehillpta.org

Join us this FRIDAY 8AM! Donuts, Donations & Discussion

Gather and discuss our school’s fundraising approach and how we use PTA Funds.   We committed to these interactive discussions when we started our Direct Give campaign this year, and the need for such discussions is clear given recent news articles about equity in PTA funding.  We strongly encourage you to come and participate in these discussions.   Please join the PTA Board, Principal Kischner, and fellow GHES parents to learn and share your thoughts.

Please join the conversation:  Friday, 11/2 – 8AM:  School Cafeteria
