PTSA Endorses 2014 Bond & Levy Measures
The McAuliffe PTSA endorses the 2014 Bond & Levy Measures. The Lake Washington School District web site provides a wealth of information for your review: Levy & Bond Basic Information (including cost and investment of all three measures); an explanation of the “levy lid lift” that ends in 2017; details about the Facilities and Technology portions of the Capital Projects Levy; enrollment projections and capacity, and much more.
Information and charts continue to be added to the site to provide answers to questions posted by parents and community leaders. Click here to go to the LWSD Levy and Bond pages. If you don't find your question answered on the site, you can email email@example.com to get an answer!
Support the Lake Washington Schools Foundation
Help the Lake Washington Schools Foundation with its 2013 Back to School Campaign! The Foundation's goal of raising $22,000 by December 31 will help support 26,000 students on their path to success. Please consider donating a dollar a day ($365), because your donation works every day, all year round for kids. You can donate securely at www.lwsf.org/donate. Also consider including Lake Washington Schools Foundation in your workplace giving and take advantage of available corporate matching.
The foundation is now partnering with the Lake Washington School District to fund its highly effective New Teacher Support Program. Support from the foundation has replaced state funding, which is no longer available. According to the district (and based on New Teacher Center research), teachers in their second year make their biggest growth in instructional practice when provided with strategic, focused learning, and the program’s positive impact on student learning has been proven.
For more information, visit www.lwsf.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact McAuliffe's LWSF Ambassador Cindy Rittenhouse.

“I'd rather be a Could-Be if I cannot be an Are; because a Could-Be is a Maybe who is reaching for a star. I'd rather be a Has-Been than a Might-Have-Been, by far; for a Might-Have-Been has never been, but a Has was once an Are.”
