Registration for fall after-school programs starts Sept. 19

Is your child interested in coding, crafts, or learning Japanese? Would they want to burn some energy after school or play with LEGO with friends? FOSB’s fall after-school programs start October 10 and run for 10 weeks, with a range of offerings for students from kindergarten to 5th grade.

Registration begins Tuesday, September 19 at 8 a.m. Use our 6Crickets site to learn about the program options and register:

Each class needs a parent volunteer (or 2 to split the classes). Volunteers receive complimentary tuition. 

Scholarships are available. You can find scholarship information on the 6Crickets registration page (top right corner).

Welcome (back) to school!

To our new families, welcome to Salmon Bay! And to returning families, welcome back! We hope the school year is off to a positive start.

FOSB has two events coming up that are great opportunities to connect with other folks in our school community: our first board meeting of the year (open to all!) and our annual Pizza on the Playground event. We hope to see you at one or both of these events!

Have a great summer!

Goodbye, Salmon Bay families! Have a wonderful, rejuvenating summer.

For those families returning to Salmon Bay next school year, we’ll see you back here in the fall. Be sure to subscribe to the FOSB events calendar so you’ll know about all the FOSB happenings to kick off the year.

For those moving on to new adventures, we wish you a very fond farewell!

Help support FOSB by shopping at Fred Meyer!

If you’re a Fred Meyer customer, you can support FOSB every time you shop! With the Fred Meyer Community Rewards program, you can easily link your rewards card to Friends of Salmon Bay, and FOSB will earn money with every purchase you make.

Sign up here to link your Fred Meyer rewards card with Friends of Salmon Bay.

This is a super easy way for FOSB to earn much-needed funds to support our school. With the recent end of Amazon Smile, FOSB lost a valuable income source. Help us replace it by linking your Fred Meyer rewards card, then swiping the card every time you shop at Fred Meyer!
