New & International Families 2020 Welcome Events

Have you just moved to the United States? Are you new to the Pacific Northwest or to Lake Washington School District (LWSD)? Lake Washington PTSA (LWPTSA) Council, in partnership with Lake Washington School District, welcomes you to the community!

Families and guardians are invited to these free welcome events to learn about: navigating the LWSD school system, resources, and support available from the district, PTSA and how to get be involved, relocation challenges, as well as how to support students through transition.
