Montlake Elementary Renovation

Montlake Elementary is being renovated.  Work starts in the summer of 2023 and will complete by the fall of 2025.  For two years, Montlake staff and students will be housed in a temporary location - in the John Marshall School, 520 NE Ravenna Blvd.  Same great school, just different location.
We have compiled a FAQ about the move to John Marshall.  Click the button to read more.

The Montlake PTA recognizes the impacts of recent events and the history of racial violence on our community. We stand in alignment with our Seattle Council PTSA, which has asked that students, families and school leaders work together to demand action against police brutality and the immediate cessation of victimization of our Black and Brown students and families. We are grateful to have a continued partnership with our own Montlake Equity & Inclusion team who is focused on racial equity within our community and Seattle Public Schools.

The Montlake PTA is dedicated to creating a warm and welcoming environment for all families. We provide opportunities for families to connect with other families through social gatherings and parent education events throughout the school year. We help families to stay informed about issues that impact our school (and Seattle Public Schools), and help parents to become knowledgeable and effective advocates for our children.

We support students and teachers through our annual grant to the school, which helps to fund some of the amazing programs that our students enjoy, and scholarships to make sure all students can participate. We’re always looking for volunteers, so let us know if you have skills in any area that you can share! We look forward to getting to know you!
