Nominate an outstanding Educator & Volunteer

It is time to honor the various people in our school community who make a difference in the lives of our children, by nominating them for the Golden Acorn and Outstanding Educator awards.

The Golden Acorn Award is presented to a volunteer in recognition of his/her dedication and service to our children while the Outstanding Educator Award recognizes staff members who have provided outstanding educational opportunities for our children that are beyond the normal scope of their jobs. These awards are presented at the Volunteer Coffee on June 6, 2018. Completed forms should be placed in the designated box in the Audubon office by May 15, 2018. The cost of these awards includes a portion that goes towards funding the WA State PTA scholarship program

LWSD Strategic Work Survey

Lake Washington School District uses an annual strategic planning process to ensure its resources and efforts are used effectively toward reaching the district mission, vision and strategic goals. Each year, the district seeks input from parents to inform the planning process. We invite and encourage you to participate in this annual survey (takes 10 to 15 minutes).

To see how input from last year's parent survey was used, visit the Communications section of the LWSD website: https://www.lwsd.org/programs-and-services/communications/parent-voice-influences-district-planning

PTSA Question of the week

PTSA would like to introduce a question of the week section in each of our regularly scheduled Enews editions. Questions that will be published are ones that our organization gets frequently or ones that offer added insight and info to our families about how our organization works. Please feel free to submit questions that you would like to see featured, to info@audubonptsa.org with the title "Question of the week submission". Here are this week's question:

Question: Why is participation in the Science Fair restricted to students in grades 3, 4 & 5 this year?

Answer: The primary reason that science projects will only be accepted from 3rd, 4th and 5th graders this year, is that we do not have enough space. Each year, our student enrollment at Audubon is increasing and we no longer have enough space to display science projects from students in all grades. In addition, we really want the science projects to reflect the work of the students, not the parents. Students in the upper elementary grades have the necessary skills to do this independently or with very minimal parental support. Please note that ALL students are invited to attend the Science Fair and view the projects on display.

Parking lot reminders; volunteers needed

Please consider volunteering 15 minutes of your time once a week to be a parking lot helper. Our parking lot helpers are amazing volunteers that help to keep our students safe in our parking lot everyday.

If you have any questions please contact michelaca@hotmail.com.

Parents, please follow the rules for safely navigating our parking lot. They ensure the safety of all Audubon students. Here are some friendly reminders of the DO's & DON'Ts that we all need to follow to ensure that the parking lot is a safe zone for students:

Do obey the posted speed limit and yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.

Do pull all the way forward before allowing your student to exit the car.

Do not allow your student to exit your car on the driver's side of the car. Students need to exit on the side closest to the sidewalk.

If your student needs help to unbuckle, open/close the car door, or needs to unload a bulky project/package, please do not use the drop-off lane. Park and help them as needed.

After your student exits the car, please move out of the drop-off lane as quickly as possible so that the cars behind you can pull all the way forward before dropping off their students. The same applies in the afternoon when picking up your student.

Drivers should remain inside their car at all times in the drop-off/pick-up lane. 

Please be respectful and obey the directions of the parking lot volunteers.

When parking in the Audubon parking lot, please do not block fire lanes.

Please consider alternate ways of getting your student to school, like walking, biking, carpooling, etc.

If you have any questions please contact michelaca@hotmail.com
