Upcoming Class Registration at EWHS – Class registration will begin in March for the upcoming school year.  Students and parents are encouraged to review the graduation requirements together.  Please make an appointment with your counselor if there are questions or concerns about which classes your student still needs for graduation.  Elective fairs will take place from Feb. 8-14 during advisory.

Warrior Word –  Did you know that EWHS has a new school newspaper?  The newly formed Journalism Club has begun publication of the Warrior Word.  Students are writing articles, creating video and generating a source of information for the entire school.  The PSO recently funded a grant for $700 to help the Journalism Club purchase a camera.  Follow the link above to find out more about what is going on at EWHS.

Check this out – Earnings for Graduates by Major – The Washington legislators have funded a website to let students/families see how their choice in major could affect their future income.  The website includes college degrees, community college degrees, certifications, apprenticeships, etc.  More information to help students make an informed decision.

The Joy of Giving Campaign – Each year the PSO and the Counseling Department collect cash donations to help EWHS students and families have enough to eat over winter break.  This year we raised $1932 and the PSO added $577 for a grand total of $2500 for EWHS families who are food insecure.  Thank you to everyone who stood outside in the morning and to all those who donated to this worthy cause.

Amazon Smile – Now is a great time to designate Edmonds-Woodway High School Parent-Staff Organization as your charity of choice on Amazon Smile.  Amazon will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to our organization.  Help us in providing support to students and teachers at EWHS.

Welcome to the EWHS Parent Staff Organization!

Welcome to the EWHS Parent Staff Organization website.  The PSO works to make every students’ time at Edmonds-Woodway High School a positive and enriching experience.  We do this in several ways:

  • Through our grant process, we are able to fund one time and everyday needs for our students and staff.  Last year we funded grants for the library, counseling department, Deaf Academic Bowl, the “Letter Farmer”, peer tutoring and the writing center.  Grant Request Log
  • We sponsor full practice SAT/ACT tests.  The practice tests help students experience college entrance exams without the pressure of it “counting”.  Taking practice tests can help determine strengths and weaknesses, improve their overall test score and gain a degree of comfort with taking the test.  College Practice Tests.  In addition, we will be offering the Princeton Review Fundamentals Course for the ACT and SAT at EWHS in the spring of 2018.
  • Recognizing teachers and staff with appreciation luncheons several times a year.  Saying thank you to our teachers and staff is an important part of our role in the school community. We appreciate the time, effort and care our teachers and staff give each day to our children.
  • Parent University – Planning is underway for the next Parent University on March 8, 2018.  It is an opportunity for parents to attend an informative night geared towards helping answer questions about raising a safe and successful teen.  – Parent University Information
