“Love Your Community School” Dinner & Silent Auction

Friday, February 9th from 6:30pm – 9:30pm

Mt. Baker Community Clubhouse – 2811 Mount Rainier Drive South


Join us for a fun and festive way to get to know your neighbors, learn more about Muir, and celebrate the diversity and resilience of our amazing community. This adults-only event will feature a complimentary dinner and a cash bar.  Non-alchoholic drinks will also be provided and vegetarian food options will be available. The program will include appearances from Muir staff and parents, and we will highlight some of the important work the PTA has supported over the past year.

Suggested entry donation for the dinner is $10 per person, to be collected at the event.  

Childcare is available at John Muir Elementary, including pizza and a movie.  Use the link above, and please register by February 6 so that we can prepare appropriately.  Suggested donation for childcare is $10 for one child, $15 for two children, and $20 for three children or more.  Children must be at least 3 years old.

We are still in need of auction items! Do you have connections to a local business or a family member with a timeshare or vacation home? Do you have a skill you’d love to share by hosting a class for your neighbors?  Do you have old gift cards lying around that you’d be willing to part with?  Please email if you have an item in mind.

Our 2017 Walkathon was a HUGE success.  Thank you to all of the students, parents, teachers, staff, and volunteers who helped us raise 14,123!!!!

And more importantly, this event was once again an incredible opportunity to build community, share some laughs, and get some exercise.  We can’t wait until next year!

School Supplies

Reminder: Still Accepting Donations for School Supplies

As part of working toward a more equitable and just school experience for all, the Muir PTA is thrilled to announce that we purchased all the supplies for the classrooms again this year. If you are able, please donate to the PTA to help cover the cost of this program. Use the PayPal button at the bottom of this page.

The PTA has already purchased nearly $8,000 worth of supplies. We are asking for a $20 suggested donation per student from those families that are able to give. Thanks to all who helped by buying off our wishlist! This helped reduce the cost from
$25/student to $20/student.

Questions? Please email us at and we will reply within 48 hours.
