Would you wear a watch and slippers made from carbon dioxide emissions? Or brush your teeth using toothpaste made from CO₂? Before the pandemic, students at Evergreen Middle School were learning about real products that capture and store carbon dioxide that would otherwise go into the atmosphere.
PTSA Special Education Group
The Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) Special Education Group (SEG), formally known as the PTSA Special Needs Group, is made up of parents in Lake Washington School District whose children receive special services (IEP) and/or classroom support (504), and parents interested in resources and support for any student with learning challenges. The group meets every month except for December and June. Anyone is welcome to attend these informative meetings, which provide opportunities to:
- Hear from speakers
- Learn about resources in the community
- Network with other parents
- Keep updated on district and PTSA issues affecting children with special needs
As meeting topics are determined, details will be posted to the LW Council PTSA website at http://www.lwptsa.net/.

PTSA Special Education Chairpersons
It is our goal that every campus in Lake Washington School District have a PTSA Special Education Chairperson. The chairperson keeps the families of that school informed of the PTSA SEG's upcoming monthly meetings. They can often answer a family's questions about special education. To find out the name of your campus PTSA SEG Chairperson, contact your school PTSA. If your campus does not have a chairperson to answer your questions and/or you would like to learn more about becoming a chairperson, please contact the LWPTSA Special Education Group.
A district-wide group has been formed to share information about dyslexia. To join, please Randi Johnson.
