School Involvement

A big reason Montlake Elementary School is so special is active parent participation! You can help in big and small ways, both during and after school hours. Here are a few ways you can get involved in your child's education:


Stay connected to Montlake Elementary on Facebook! We have two facebook pages:  and Montlake Elementary PTA.


Contact: PTA President Lisa Golden        

The Montlake PTA supports the many academic and enrichment programs as well as events and activities at our school. More than half of our annual budget helps fund teacher and staff salaries. Your PTA membership provides our PTA board with insurance, training and administrative support. Our fundraising efforts include an Annual fund drive each fall and a Spring Auction. We hope you will contribute to these and sign up for the many volunteer opportunities that are available. The PTA Board meets monthly at the home of parent Greg Lindhorst (please contact for the address) and General PTA Meetings are held in September, January and April each year. We hope you will join us. You'll find answers to frequently asked questions about the PTA here

Academic & Event Volunteers

Contact: Sumathi Raghavan

One of the best ways to stay involved in your child's education is to help out in the classroom. Each teacher relies on the help of Room Parents, who help with tutoring students, preparing classroom materials, planning parties, coordinate field trips, help update the website, and many other things. Many of these can be done on your own schedule and outside of school hours. 

Montlake has many events and activities that rely on the generous support of volunteers throughout our community. These include large events like the Spring Auction to smaller events such as the Evergreen Sale, Husky Parking, Math Night, Art Walk, Field Day and Carnival. You can also help by managing activities such as our website and databases. Whether you have time during school hours or only an hour or two now and then, your help is greatly appreciated.
