Annual Magazine Renewal and New Subscription Event
If you would like to renew or subscribe to new magazines for the coming year, we are once again offering an online portal for your convenience. A portion of each order will go to our school and be used for curriculum enrichment at the elementary. Just go to the website below for a list of selections. Go to: http://www.gaschoolstore.com/landing.aspx?SID=2530749
The website is available 365 days a year for your convenience! If you have any questions, please contact the school office and Mr. Kelly will provide assistance.

Special Note: When you arrive at the website it will ask you to enter your email and student’s name. Since we are not participating in any goal setting or prizes this year, go straight to the SHOPNOW button. Thank you!

Any change in student pick-up at the end of the day needs to go through the office. This is the only way to be sure your student gets the message. If you send an email to the teacher, he/she may not be available to respond due to teaching students. Please Call Mrs. de Langen or Miss Soriano at 206-546-7258.

Emails and/or Phone Messages
Our school policy is that emails or phone messages from parents will be returned by the end of the next business day.

Carpool Confusion at Drop-Off?
Happy to clarify for you!

  • Students should NEVER be dropped off anywhere on either side of Dayton Ave. N.
  • Students should be dropped off INSIDE the carpool area.

Lunch with Your Children
Parent seating space at lunchtime is limited. Please wait until ALL students are seated to see if there is adequate space for you. You may end up kneeling or standing by your child! Thank you!
