For the next three years, funding for our music program will come from the Creative Advantage program. This includes building a 3-5 year inclusive arts plan for QAE.
If you are interested in hearing more about this program or joining the planning team, please email Gillian Jorgensen at email@example.com.
Queen Anne Elementary is officially part of Students Rebuild! For the next few months in the MakerSpace we will be making sea creatures out of any and all recycled materials. If you have anything to contribute we would love the donation. For every sea creature we send in the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $2 to save marine life and support coastal communities. This link below can be used to see how much we have created and earned. It is at 0 now but our goal is to donate over 4000 creatures, so stay tuned and watch it soar!
Thank you for your support!

PBL Night is Thursday, Dec. 13th from 5:30 – 7:30pm at John Marshall. This year, we will be adding the first ever QAE MakerSpace MarketPlace!
Project-Based Learning Showcase Schedule
If you have family or friends thinking about registering at QAE next year, please invite them to this fantastic event!
Makerspace MarketPlace is a place to support the student directed MakerSpace fall challenge. Students wrote proposals to “make a difference for themselves, the community or the world”. Explorers had the freedom to create initiatives, which included fund-raisers, awareness campaigns and products to sell. These products will be shared at the MakerSpace MarketPlace to raise money for different charities on PBL night. All funds raised will be pooled and divided equally amongst the students’ initiatives. There will also be a raffle and a bake sale to raise funds for the QAE MakerSpace. MakerSpace MarketPlace will be open from 5:30 – 6:30pm in the Cafeteria.
If your child would like to sell their MakerSpace items at the MarketPlace or showcase his or her learning, please fill out the application here:
After we receive your entry, we'll follow up with more details!
