Season of Giving

'Tis the Season of Giving in Lake Washington School District (LWSD). Each year schools and district buildings across LWSD think of ways to benefit those most in need during the holiday season.

Elizabeth Fu

It is one thing to get a score of five on any Advanced Placement (AP) exam, but to get every, single point possible is very unique. Elizabeth Fu, International Community School class of 2021, is one of just 375 students across the world to accomplish this.

    Currently enrolled/returning preschool students and preschool students on an IEP do not need to fill out the interest statement to enter the lottery

    Preschool Interest Statements received before March 12, 2021 will be entered into a lottery for a seat in the LWSD Preschool program. Lottery will be held the week of March 15, 2021 and families will be notified by March 31, 2021. Any students who do not receive a seat via the lottery will be placed on a waitlist for that preschool location/session. 

    Families on the waitlist at specific preschool locations will be called and offered seats as they become available. 

    After April 1, 2021 registration/enrollments will be handled at the LWSD Early Learning Center at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse to fill any seats remaining after the lottery.
