2023-2024 Family and Community Engagement Vice President: Ahmad Al-Rifai (he/him) – FACE (at)

Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is the cornerstone of any successful PTA or PTSA. Reaching out to students and families to provide support, services and community is the best way to maintain a healthy PTA membership and to ensure that every child has a voice in your school.

Lake Washington PTSA Council’s purpose is to provide support to all PTAs in the Lake Washington School District (LWSD) to help them achieve their goals. FACE is a component of everything we do.
