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 is this week's question:

Question: Thank you for last week's ideas on how to talk to our neighbors who don't have school-aged kids, about the Bond and Levy measures. Is there any other way that I can help spread awareness about the importance of voting YES for these measures on the Feb 13 ballot?

Answer: Yes, there is! Join the Audubon staff and PTSA on Monday, January 29th as we wear red and wave signs at the intersection of West Lake Sammamish Pkwy & Bel-Red road. You can make your own sign at home or wave one of our ore-printed signs. You can also help spread awareness by phone-banking or door belling. For more information on how to do these please click here.

In addition, you can wear a button or place a sign that encourages folks to vote YES! in your yard or on your car.

If you have any questions, please contact the PTSA presidents at Lilach.Geppert@gmail.com and Yumna_green@msn.com

 

Support the upcoming Bond & Levies! Vote YES for our schools!!

The Audubon PTSA membership voted to endorse and support the February 13, 2018 ballot measures (1 bond and 2 levies). For the past 7 years, LWSD student enrollment has been growing by roughly 700 students per year - that is enough students to fill a large elementary school EVERY YEAR. 

The 2018 bond will pay for a new elementary school in the Lake Washington learning community thereby easing the overcrowding at the other elementary schools already in that learning community. The current elementary schools in the Lake Washington Learning Community are Audubon, Franklin, Rush, Twain, Kirk, Lakeview and Rose Hill Elementary. 

The 2 levies are replacement levies for the current levies that property owners are already paying and will be used to fund things like the Special Education, ELL and Quest programs, substitute teachers, nurses, technology, etc. The good news is that if all 3 measures pass, property owners will actually be paying less taxes than they are currently paying. The tax rate will drop from its current $3.16 per $1,000 of assessed value to $2.93 per $1,000 of assessed value. Here's how you can show your support and inform your neighbors:

- Make sure you've registered to vote by January 15th.  Then vote yes for the 2 levies and 1 bond on the Feb 13th ballot and be sure to mail your ballot by no later than Feb 13, 2018. 

- On Facebook, "like" and "share" https://www.facebook.com/VoteForLakeWashingtonKids

- Change your Facebook Profile pic to this.

- Audubon PTSA endorsed the measures as an organization. You can endorse the 3 measures as an individual too. Visit http://vote4lwsdkids.org/ to do so.

- Talk to your neighbors who do not have school-aged children. Tell them that currently we have two 3rd grade classes in 1 classroom at Audubon because we have run out of space. Let them know that they can make a real difference AND save some tax dollars when they vote yes!

- Put up a sign in your car window or on your front lawn.

If you have any questions, please contact Audubon PTSA Co-Presidents Yumna Green and Lilach Geppert-Shapira

Traffic Tips for our Parking Lot 

Thank you very much to our volunteer parking lot helpers that help to direct traffic in the Audubon parking lot every morning and afternoon. Parents, please follow the directions of our parking lot helpers. They are volunteering their time to ensure the safety of all Audubon students. Here are a few handy hints to ensure the parking lot is a safe zone for students:

  1. Obey the posted speed limit and yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.
  2. Pull all the way forward before allowing your student to exit the car.
  3. If you 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Please be respectful and obey the directions of the parking lot volunteers.
  6. When parking in the Audubon parking lot, please do not block fire lanes.

If you would like to help direct traffic in the morning or afternoon (most parking lot helpers commit to just 15 minutes once a week) please contact Julie Conley
