Pasta Dinner

Thanks to all the parents, family, staff and students who joined us for the final PTA fundraiser for the year beforehand. This event raised approximately $600 dollars that will go to benefit the children of MWE.

Thank you so much for your work to bring together the MWE community at this annual event. And finally, thank you to the people who took the extra food to share with people in need.

Join the Safety Valet!

There is seriously nothing better than starting your day by welcoming all the sweet faces of Mt. Washington Elementary School to a day of learning and fun. Arrive each week on the day you choose, organize some orange cones, sip your coffee and open some car doors. Show up at 7:30am and you’re done by 8:30 (usually 8:20). Easy peasy (and actually pretty fun).

Pick a day and sign up! Open THIS and sign up where you see an open day/position. If you dont want to commit to a day each week, be an alternate – we will call you when someone can’t make it to their shift!

Questions? Call or email me. Leslie Wise • 213-605-1634 / leslieballwise@gmail.com
