The Ella Baker PTSA Advocacy team works hand-in-hand with the school counselor supporting the needs of all students. The advocacy team works on food drives and helps provide the school with scholarships for students that would otherwise not be able to attend school events or enrichment programs. Student advocacy also works with the school registrar Jill Brunke welcoming new families to our school.




Snack Attacks has been created to help the school health-room staff and the school counselor provide snacks to children who have either forgotten their snack or have a health need for extra snacks during the day. During the annual Snack Attack we ask parents to donate snacks to the school.

Snack Attack Drive: September 3-13 (Please send snack items with your child to school or deliver to the front office). Next drive will occur in November.




Pantry Packs powered by the Lake Washington Schools Foundation (LWSF) provides weekend packs of food for more than 800 LWSD students each week who are identified as being “food insecure”. With community donations of time, funds and kid-friendly food, 40 volunteers come together each month to “pack the packs”. The Advocacy Team picks up the packs from LWSF monthly and delivers them to the school. Our team also arranges an annual food drive to collect foods to support the Pantry Packs program.

Food Drive: TBD




It is of utmost importance to make sure that every student feels included and can participate in school events, attend field trips and participate in enrichment programs. Our scholarship programs are managed by the school counselor and makes sure every child is included.
