Below are a handful of the photos taken by QAE parent Christa Winquist during our recent Project-Based Learning Showcase and our first ever MakerSpace Marketplace. It was a such a great night - amazing to see all the excitement, the kids so eager to share what they've learned.
As Christa said, "I loved how this event and evening was teacher and student led and focused with parents in a supportive role. The event really captured the spirit of QAE! My kiddos and our family really enjoyed it!"
The year is flying by and the season of open houses and school tours is upon us! We've updated our Prospective Families page with information about what makes QAE special, including our Five Pillars and Social Emotional Learning.
Here's some of the upcoming dates if you're a prospective parent who'd like to see QAE or are a current family who has friends who may be interested. Share away!

QAE is an option school, so the key milestone is the open enrollment for school choice - Feb. 4th-15th, 2019. See the page for more details!
Remember - QAE will be moving back to our newly expanded school back on top of Queen Anne for the 2019-20 year.
Are you interested in working in the classroom? Know someone who has a background in teaching or working with children?
We are in need of a kindergarten aide to work in Ms. Dickens room Monday through Friday 8:15am to 12:45pm. The pay is $15.25 an hour.
If you're interested please contact Karen Rang in the QAE office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-252-2480.
I know you’re busy. And I value your time so I’m going to get straight to the point.
Today is the launch of the QAE Fund Drive. I’m asking you to please make a gift that will directly support 100% of the students at QAE.
You know as well as I do that school funding does not cover everything we want for our children. So people like you and me band together to help QAE provide an incredible learning and growing experience for our children.
Here’s what your gift to the QAE Fund Drive will make possible for the students this year:
Your gift does these things and so much more!
To make all this and everything else possible for the kids of QAE, the PTSA has committed to spend $912 for each child this year. This fund drive is a massive part of raising that money.
And let me be clear. These things will not happen unless we raise the money. The parents of QAE children – you and me – need to come together if we want these benefits for our students—and all the students at the school.
It’s your generosity that provides these incredible gifts to your children – and to every child at QAE.
Please click this link and give a gift to the Fund Drive today. Today is the very first day, and starting the campaign with a bang is so important. There’s no time to waste!
I’m sure you’ll agree, even though we’re in a different building this year, our amazing QAE spirit is stronger than ever – in Monday Morning Meetings, in our Project-Based Learning, in the dedication our entire community shows and in so many other ways.
Need even more inspiration to donate? Take a peek at our Five Pillars of Queen Anne video.
Every single student benefits when you support this community. But I need to hear from you by December 14th!
QAE PTSA President
P.S. Thank you in advance for supporting the students this year. By starting the fund drive strong, we’ll go into 2019 on solid financial footing.
