S.T.E.M. Night March 8th

We are excited that S.T.E.M. Night will be back at Juanita on Thursday, March 8th from 6-8pm. This is a FREE event to all our families thanks to local companies and community members that are donating their time, your PTA and Jennifer Nichols and her planning.

While we have some amazing companies hosting learning areas, we still need a handful of volunteers. A paper sign-up sheet went home with your kids last week. You can also sign up here for a specific job.…

Your Vote Matters

Getting better every day! While the bond won’t pass, the levies did.  Thank you for all you did to help this election.

Stay tuned on what’s next regarding the bond so we can get space built for our children. One thing is for sure, we will need your help! #yes4LWSDkids


The Big Clean-Out

It’s Mid-Winter Break (Thursday, Friday and Monday) and a great time to clean out those closets. Our 4th Grade Class will be hosting Juanita’s 4th annual Clothing and Textile Drive during Earth Week in April (April 16th-22nd).

So start filling those garbage bags now and talk to all your neighbors and friends. Their goal is to have EACH student bring in 3 filled garbage bags. Please remember that your donations are tax-deductible.
