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 needed “extras” for our students and staff. This year we have given a grant to the library for books, paid for a magazine subscription for the science department and given a grant to the counseling department to help students in need. In addition, we helped fund the reupholstery of the library chairs and the upcoming replacement of the gym sound system.
- We sponsor practice StartUp tests and 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
- Recognizing teachers and staff with appreciation luncheons several times a year. The first appreciation lunch this year was on November 8th 2019.
- Parent University – An opportunity for parents to attend an informative night geared towards helping answer questions about raising a safe and successful teen. Parent University T

Remember to join us at the fun social gathering at Brigid’s bottleshop on December 5th at 7:00pm.
This will be a great way to socialize with staff and fellow PSO members, and it will also be for a great cause! We will be kicking off the Joy of Giving Campaign at this fun event. Many years ago, a group of students began the Joy of Giving Campaign to help their fellow EW students during winter break. Those original students have long since graduated but their effort to help EW families continues. We will be collecting monetary or grocery gift card donations for the Joy of Giving, while catered appetizers will be provided by the PSO board members.
The PSO and Counseling Department will also collect donations at the EWHS Annual Craft fair on December 7th, where we will have a table set up for this cause. In addition donations may be dropped off at the EWHS main office from December 4th -18th.
All money collected goes to buying grocery store gift cards for EWHS families who are food insecure and might not have enough to eat during winter.
