Montlake Elementary PTA

We are a small, neighborhood school known for our garden and art program, music program as well as Special Education Access and Resource programs. We have a team of wonderful, dedicated, enthusiastic teachers and support staff at Montlake who are the backbone of our school – many of whom have been a part of Montlake for 10+ years (and some for over 20!). For the next two years, our school will operate out of the John Marshall school in Ravenna.  Same great school - just a different, temporary location. 

Our Vision

  • That every child's potential becomes a reality

Our Mission:

  • To be a powerful voice for ALL children
  • To be a relevant resource for families, schools and communities

Support your students. Join the PTA!

PTA membership and dues support your child by funding essential educational and curriculum needs; advocating on behalf of all children and educators at the local, state and national levels; and building an inclusive school community for all families.

We encourage you to join the PTA for your child because increasing our membership, even by one, makes it possible to provide important educational resources, speak up on important issues and create a stronger school community.  There is no wrong or right way to be involved - anything that you can give, whether it's time or money, will support your child's potential.

You must renew your PTA membership each year to maintain your active member status.   While all are welcome to attend PTA meetings and events, only active members can vote on PTA decisions.

Click the button below to join for the first time or to renew your membership.  Membership costs $20 for one and $35 for two.  If you are unable to pay the membership fee, go to PTA Membership Scholarship to sign up for free.  All are encouraged to join.

New school site. Same great spirit!

Montlake Elementary is being renovated.  Work started in Summer 2023 and will complete by Fall 2025.  For two years, Montlake staff and students will be housed in a temporary location: John Marshall School, 520 NE Ravenna Blvd.  Same great school, just different location!

Would you like a tour of the building or to speak with current student families and staff? Please check the SPS website for tour dates here or contact the front office at 206-252-3300.
