A Letter From Your President

Dear Somerset Elementary School Families,

It's my honor to serve the Somerset community. On behalf of the PTSA Board I want to send a warm welcome to all new and returning families joining us for the 2015/2016 school year. Somerset Elementary is an excellent school and we have a high level of engagement of both skilled staff and participating parents. Our children are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn in such a rich and culturally diverse environment, and the PTSA is an integral part of Somerset’s success.

We hope that you will become a PTSA member and join us in supporting the academic and extracurricular programs and activities we fund. Click "Create an Account" on this page to become a member or renew your membership and update your contact information.

Please join us for our Welcome Back Social on Thursday, September 3rd, 6:30-7:30 pm in the school cafeteria. Free ice cream and popsicles will be served. We are looking forward to getting to know new families and reconnecting with returning families.

To learn more about the Somerset PTSA, our events and activities, please subscribe to our weekly newsletter when you create or update your account. If you still have questions about the PTSA, please talk with me in person at the school during drop off or pick up in front of the school most days or contact me at Our Executive Officers would love to hear from you too. Contact us at We are looking forward to another fun and successful year at Somerset!

Thank you very much for the opportunity to serve our Somerset community in this way.

Laura Hoff

PTSA President

Parking Volunteers Needed!
The school’s motto this year is ONE Somerset. It takes all of us working together to make Somerset a safe, productive, and happy place! One area that Somerset needs additional volunteer support, is during morning drop-off to ensure students exit cars quickly and that our traffic flows smoothly. Drop off begins at 8:40 and ends at 9:00 am, in time for the first bell. If you are available to help out, even for just one day, please join us at the front of the school or contact me for more information. Thank you! Judy Bowlby, Assistant Principal, 425.456.5861 ... read full article
