Our mission as a group of parents, teachers, and students is to support and enrich the lives of all
Operating as usual
YAY!!!! The first one is THIS Friday!!!
EPO Orcas - in one week we went from $1,200 raised to over $3,900 raised!! That is INCREDIBLE! Let's see what we can do this week! Keep submitting your quality pieces of feedback and help our $$ grow!
Text SCHOOL to 90412 to start today!
Happy Friday Orcas!! Here’s another PTA update for you ❤️
Ohhh FUN!!! School Spirit Week is NEXT week!!!
WOW!!! Our Spirit Gear did AMAZING!! Thank you EPO Orcas ❤
Smile big Orcas 😁 This Thursday is picture day!!
Hi EPO Orcas! Just an update for you 🥰
Kids got extra curricular activities? While you're waiting for them to finish, how about knocking out a few surveys? Earn dollars for our school while you wait! Haven't started yet? Text SCHOOL to 90412.
Today is the day!!
If you wanted to order Spirit Gear, Wednesday is the last day!
EPO Orcas ~ We've had 68 participants sign up for our HundredX fundraiser so far. These participants have completed 505 surveys for a projected value of $1,010 so far! Great start EPO! Let's keep this momentum going! Our first goal is to fully fund student assemblies which is approximately $5,000. If you haven't signed up yet, please join us!!
Breane Martinez, Owner of Nothing Bundt Cakes in Silverdale, helped us treat our amazing teachers and staff to delicious bundtinis to celebrate finishing their first full week of the new school year. ❤️
Late start Wednesdays starts today!!
In South Kitsap, we value staff collaboration time. Each Wednesday our schools start 45 minutes late to allow time for teacher & support staff to gather and work on how best to support student achievement.
School start times can be found here: https://trst.in/rD44dA
One of the great things about our HundredX Campaign is that anyone 18 & older can participate! Whether they are local or out of state. Brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandpas, grandmas, neighbors and friends can ALL help make an impact! Not sure what to say when you reach out to them? We can help!

Happy First Day of Kindergarten for our littlest Orcas!! Welcome to our Pod ❤️
Our Fall Fundraiser is now LIVE! You can sign up and begin giving your feedback now. Not sure how to start? This short video will walk you through the sign in and survey process. Make sure to take your time and give thoughtful responses. You can submit up to 75 responses but please don't try to do this all in one day! HundredX will only pay for quality feedback, so 5-10 per day is a reasonable amount. Remember, you have a month to do this :) And please, spread the word! Families and friends who are local AND out of state (within the US) can participate and help earn money for our school. Participants must be 18+.
Tomorrow is the big day Orcas!!! We’re SO excited to see all of your smiling faces ❤️
Less than a week!!! And EPO’s Open House is tonight! See you there ❤️
We hope you're as excited as we are to start the 2022-2023 school year!!! 😀
Classes start on Wednesday, September 7th! (this is NOT a late start Wednesday)

Welcome back SK!
Got any books to spare?
This summer has flown by and the first day of school for our EPO Orcas is just around the corner! We hope that this school year will provide a good sense of structure, normalcy and routine for our students and their families. If you have thought about helping out at school but are not sure where to start, this PTA highlights video might help. PTA is a great way to be involved and the more helping hands we have, the better!
Ohhhh, this is such great news!!!
If you have any questions or need anything, the front desk is open and our front office staff is AMAZING!! ❤️
At EPO, we try to eliminate any obstacles to education. We supply students with their school supplies, but here are some items we recommend:
Backpack and Lunchbox
Snacks: Our PTA and community partnerships have fully funded our Snacks for Kids Program. If your student doesn’t bring a snack for any reason, we will provide one for them.
Tennis Shoes: Students go out to recess twice a day and they have PE multiple times a week. We recommend tennis shoes with rubber soles. Slippers or open-toed sandals are not recommended.
Your teacher may recommend additional items.
Make sure you label anything that you send with your student.
We are here to help – if your family needs help purchasing any items, please contact our front office.
What a great start to the morning for our Orcas!
Any students on campus will have the option of reading in the gym or reading while eating in the cafeteria. We recommend students bring their own book, but we will have plenty to share.
Open House details
Teachers will be posted to Skyward on Monday, Aug. 29. Open House is a drop-in model, so come after 5:30 pm to avoid the long lines.

Oh my goodness!!! Did you see?!? It’s done!! SO EXCITED!!!!!
During conference week, Tuesdays are the really long days for teachers. They can have conferences late to help to accommodate working parents. Traditionally PTA does a conference lunch for them. We were super fortunate to have a fellow classmates mom help procure AMAZING donations from Jimmy Johns Sandwiches AND Tim’s Cascade Chips! And wonderful staff who volunteered their time and resources to help get fruit, cut it up, arrange all the food and restock! I couldn’t have done it without all of you!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your help ❤️❤️
