EHS PTSA Supports and Endorses 2018 LWSD Bond and Levies

On Wednesday, Jan. 10, Eastlake High School PTSA members proudly voted to both support and endorse the upcoming bond and levies.

Top 3 Reasons to Vote YES

1) Addresses overcrowding and provides needed resources while reducing the tax rate. The bond provides more classroom space to relieve overcrowding in our district, which is now the third largest in the state. The levies ensure teachers have the resources they need to help students succeed. And, due to good fiscal planning, the LWSD tax rate will be reduced.

2) Maintains and prioritizes most urgent needs for kids. These proposals prioritize our schools' most urgent overcrowding, education, safety, technology, and maintenance needs while reducing our tax rate. 

3) Everyone benefits. Good schools and facilities positively affect our neighborhoods. 

Better schools help build a stronger community, which improves our quality of life and keeps our neighborhoods desirable. For more information, visit the LWCLC website or the LWSD Bond and Levies website.

Please VOTE YES by Feb. 13!


Community Service Spotlight: Caitlyn and Cassidy Nye

Our PTSA service spotlights are Caitlyn and Cassidy Nye.  These sisters, along with their younger brother, used their musical talents to brighten the holidays for residents of Providence Marionwood in Issaquah.  Thank you, Caitlyn and Cassidy, for this great idea to combine developing talents and serving our community!
 

Holiday Community Service Reminder  December was a popular month for giving service, so be sure to remind your student turn in the hours for their kind acts during the holidays! What counts as service? Service can be defined as "the action of helping or doing work for someone: kindness, a good turn, helping hand, assistance, aid." There was SO much kindness happening at Eastlake last month -- just ask your student about "Winter Wishes!" If they have been involved in service at school or in the community, make sure to celebrate and validate it by turning in Community Service here.

WSPTA Student Essay Contest: Men Making a Difference

The Washington State PTA holds a yearly statewide essay contest that explores the important and varied contributions that men make in the lives and education of children –- from the child’s perspective.  All men involved in a child’s life –- fathers, uncles, grandfathers, brothers, step-fathers, mentors, neighbors, pastors, coaches and friends –- impact the children they care about.  Research clearly shows that male involvement positively influences academic success at all levels of schooling –- preschool through college.  Click here for contest guidelines, divisions, and to read last year's winning entries.  Deadline is March 1, 2018.
