APRIL SHOWERS GIVE GRANTS POWERS!
This April, we’re hoping you can help us refill our grant program funds to meet the growing needs of our students and staff that extend beyond the school’s budget. Past grants have helped purchase supplies, provide event support, and even make special experiences possible for our students. Find out more about our grant program and it’s impact.
EW Warriors Winter Store
Show your EW spirit with the coolest Warriors winter gear around and help send our Senior class off in style. But hurry, the EW Warriors Winter Store is only open through January 31. Curbside pickup for your new gear will take place near the EW campus on February 20th (optional $5 in-district delivery is also available). All profits help fund a special graduation celebration for the Class of ‘21.
We teamed up with our friends at Jaiiya Cafe to raise funds to purchase refreshing drinks for every teacher and staff member at Edmonds-Woodway High School. Find out more about our FILL THE CUP staff appreciation event.
Our holiday fundraiser raised $4,300 to help provide food and clothing for EWHS students and their families. Thank you to everyone who helped fight food insecurity for our fellow Warriors.

YOU SHOP. WE SCORE!
Set EWHS PSO as your charity in Amazon Smile and every time you shop, Amazon donates a portion of the proceeds to our programs. This is the easiest way to help raise critical funds that benefit our students and staff. Make the change before you do your holiday shopping and we can award even more grants to our educators this year!
Masks for EWHS Staff
In appreciation of the teachers and staff at EW, the Parent Staff Organization is donating cloth masks and hand sanitizer to each of them. This was made possible with the help of volunteer mask makers – Kim Palmer, Cathy Albrecht, Linda Zahnow and Candy Samione; donated fabric from Susan Haroian and donated hand sanitizer from Scratch Distillery/Alderwood-Terrace Rotary. Thank you to everyone for your help or donation.
