Volunteer for SKCEE Events
Want to get involved in SKCEE events this year? The PTA is also looking for volunteers to help organize and run the various events and fundraisers throughout the year. Sign up here to join a committee! Joining a committee is a fantastic way to get involved with our great school and get to know other parents and teachers!
We are humbled and beyond grateful for the outpouring of support from our community! This 2023 SKCEE Scamper was a HUGE success thanks to YOUR involvement! We exceeded our modest fundraising goal of $10,000, and hit a new SKCEE record of $33,254! This, combined with our $20,000 contribution from last school year, will build new outdoor education improvements at SKCEE! Some of these improvements have already been approved and you will start to see them on campus in the next few weeks.
ALL auction items will be available for pickup on Thursday, Nov. 2 from 5:30-6:30pm. Detailed instructions will be sent to the email address auction winners registered with.
The November dine out is on Wednesday, November 8th at all Birdcall locations. Use code SKC118 at checkout and 25% of your order will be given to the SKCEE PTA.
The next Stock the Lounge is scheduled for Wednesday, November 15th for Group 3: Phuong, Schmidt, Havenar, Perez, Mathiebe, C. Gurule. Please bring in individually-packaged snacks and drinks like granola/protein/cereal bars, crackers, and cookies. We will collect donations outside of the front office, at the drop-off line for kiss-and-go Kindergarten parents, as well as the Cory bus stop.
The next PTA meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 9th at 5pm in room 101. Childcare will be provided.
We are looking for volunteers to become a Room Parent for your child’s class! Room Parents will help their classroom teacher as needed with: communication with parents, finding resources and volunteers, planning and implementing class celebrations, and organizing class gifts. We ask that you become a member of the PTA and attend monthly meetings, as this job will include relaying specific communications from the PTA involving community events, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities. Being a Room Parent is a fun and rewarding job that helps you build great relationships with your child’s teacher and classroom community! Please reach out to your teacher directly if you are interested in volunteering as a Room Parent.
Dear SKCEE Families,
Welcome to Stephen Knight Center for Early Education! Whether you are a new or returning family, the SKCEE PTA is happy to have your family join our community this school year.
The SKCEE PTA’s goals are to promote a culture of parent engagement and volunteerism; provide sustainable financial resources that support student education and classroom needs; maintain effective communication with the SKCEE community; and foster collaboration and partnership between SKCEE families and staff. During a typical school year, the SKCEE PTA hosts fundraisers and social events, and we provide meals, funding and volunteer support for our teachers and staff.
Support from our families and community help make all of this possible! If you are interested in getting involved in the SKCEE PTA, we encourage you to stop by the PTA table at the Meet and Greet on August 17 from 3-4pm. We will have a table set up near the front office. Families will be able to sign up for PTA membership, purchase SKCEE t-shirts, and learn about volunteer opportunities! We hope to see you there!
The following volunteer positions will be available for sign-up:
Please save the date for these upcoming school events (more details to follow):

We encourage you to join the PTA here, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram (@skceepta) to keep updated on PTA and school news. Please reach out to us at email@example.com with any questions.

Spring Fling: The annual Spring Fling gathers our community for an outdoor fair at the school. Activities include games, food, music and lots of fun
SKCEE PTA has other fundraising activities you can participate in such as Mabel’s Labels, and BoxTops.
Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out; however, we still encourage you to bring any clips you have, or find into school to feed your classroom Box Top Animal!
BOX TOPS IS MAKING IT EASY. No more clipping. No more sending Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone. Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit your school’s Box Tops earnings online. The best thing about this is that friends and family near and far can also contribute by downloading the app and selecting our school as well!
Mabel’s Labels supports SKCEE! Mabel’s Labels is a great source for labels — take a look at their labels made specially for your child’s water bottle, folders, backpacks, etc. They are waterproof, dishwasher proof, cute, and custom labels. Part of proceeds will roll back to the SKCEE PTA! Select “Support a Fundraiser,” and Find Stephen Knight Center for Early Education in the drop down menu. Thanks for your support!
