Seattle Schools' Calendars, 2012-2013

From SPS Communications:

Families, staff and community members should receive the calendar the first week of September

Seattle Public Schools would like to thank those organizations and businesses that sponsored the District’s 2012-13 wall calendar and family guide, which will be mailed soon to Seattle Public Schools students, families and staff.  Sponsors include KOMO, Allstate, Camp Fire, City of Seattle, Comcast, Every Block, PiPlus, the NW Network, Seattle Committee to Save Schools, Stevens Pass and Swerve driving school and Defensive Driving. 

“We are thrilled to partner with these businesses and organizations to ensure our families have access to this important information,” said SPS Chief Communications Officer Lesley Rogers. “Without these sponsors, the district would eventually have to stop publishing the calendar, which our families and staff rely on for news and information throughout the year.”

The calendar, which features photos and quotes from students and staff, is scheduled to be mailed on Aug. 27 and in homes by Sept. 1-4. The District prints 55,000 copies of the calendar, which includes a family guide that contains information about important school dates, testing schedules, inclement weather instructions and family services.

Advertising in the wall calendar was made possible by the School Board in June. The newly updated Advertising Policy 4237 is available online for more information. The sponsor messages in the calendar do not constitute or imply any endorsement, recommendation, or favoritism by Seattle Public Schools.

Anyone interested in helping sponsor next year’s calendar can reserve a spot early by emailing

I believe there is an ad in the calendar opposing advertising in our schools. Ironic. My kind of snark.
