We are so excited to be starting another school year at Cedar Way! Please keep an eye out for upcoming announcements from the PTO, including our 2021-22 meeting schedule, community building and fundraising events, and ways to join in the fun and lend a hand enriching our children's education. If you have any ideas, suggestions, questions, or want to pitch in, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also welcome donations, especially during this time of limited fundraising opportunities.
Thank you to everyone who supported the 2021 Mountlake Terrace 5K Fun Run & Walk! On Saturday, July 24, we put on our 5K t-shirts and ran and walked in our own neighborhoods to raise money for Cedar Way and other elementary schools in Mountlake Terrace. We hope to see you all next year at an in-person event.

Black Lives Matter
The Cedar Way Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (CWE PTO) supports the highest goals of the school, bridging the gap between the school and parents, unifying the community to further the development of our children, and contributing to the public greater good.
At this time, and in support of that mission, the CWE PTO Board finds it is necessary to vocalize our support of the belief that the conditions that cause children and youth to be at risk must be recognized, reduced, and eliminated. The CWE PTO stands in solidarity with our BIPOC community members and with all those who are protesting to inspire change. We encourage our members to raise their voices in support of equity, inclusion and the end of systemic racism.
We encourage other CWE families to join us in combating racism and creating a better future for Black youth, including supporting and attending Black-led events, educating ourselves, talking with our kids about race and justice, and supporting Black-led organizations doing long-term work for justice.
As always, we welcome feedback from our community! If you have any comments, concerns, or ideas, or are interested in joining the board, please contact us at email@example.com.
