The Scholastic Book Fair raised $2,100 for the library (just over $10,000 was collected overall)! Additionally, $700 in books (55) were purchased through the fair for the library and approximately 70 books for classroom libraries.
Thank you McAuliffe families! It was a fantastic fair! Not only do our school and classroom libraries benefit, but at home libraries benefit as well.

With fall storms already causing issues in our area, now is a good time to review the district's bad weather protocols. Families with students who ride the bus should watch their mail in mid-November for a postcard with information about their bad weather bus route.

Is your child struggling with a school subject?
KidsCore can help!
We have well qualified tutors ready to help with whatever your child needs! For Free!
Eastlake High School tutors in Math, Science, French, and Spanish, KidsCore has over 50 student tutors ready to help the children at your elementary school!
All of the tutors who are a part of KidsCore excel in school and are dedicated to helping younger students learn and excel in school. They have gone through basic training on how to tutor children. The training was based on META (the Eastlake High School tutoring club) standards and modified according to tips from KidsQuest classroom settings and research done online about elementary school age tutoring.
To sign up, send an email to KidsCore@outlook.com. Indicate their needs and provide recommendations (for example if they want a tutor who is a senior or what personality they may work well with). Ideally each tutor would be paired with one child for a significant amount of time, but a parent is allowed to change tutors, no questions asked. When the tutors are paired with a student, it is between the tutor and the parent to determine the schedule. Tutoring sessions will occur a the Sammamish library.
Contact KidsCore today to request a tutor or for questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All in for kids!
Thank you to our generous school community! This fall, with matching dollars, you are helping us reach our goal of raising $80,000 to support students in learning in the Lake Washington School district. Your donations make a difference--they fund K-12 STEM programs such as IXL online math and robotics, new teacher training and classroom grants. There is still time to help! Please give to the foundation during our Fall Campaign to support student success. Interested in learning how your donation impacts students, teachers and schools? Click here to see the investments the foundation is making in schools this year.
The Lake Washington Schools Foundation was established to help our community directly and efficiently invest in classroom learning. The State funds basic education, but our District sets a higher bar for its students and the Foundation supports those higher standards.
Please consider a gift through your employer to benefit all students in the Lake Washington School District. Thank you for your support!
