Spotlight Your PTA

"Bobcat Cave is an alternative recess program that allows students to participate in a quieter environment during their lunch recess. Some students find themselves alone or overstimulated in the average recess setting. At Bobcat Cave, our volunteers build Legos, play board games and do crafts with students. Some students come to Bobcat Cave because it is fun and something different." - Christine Elledge, Brier PTA #7.2.15


WSPTA is the oldest and the largest nonprofit grassroots children’s advocacy association in Washington state. Together we can strengthen our voice to improve the quality of our children’s health, welfare, safety, and education.
