Your PTSA Advocacy Representative

The Endeavour Elementary PTSA Advocacy Chair is responsible for keeping the Endeavour community updated on current legislative issues that affect our school, district, state and sometimes nation, as well as getting people involved in advocating for education.

The Advocacy chair typically attends the State PTA Legislative Assembly in the Fall of each school year. The Legislative Assembly is a gathering of PTA advocates from around the state who debate and decide which issues the State PTA will focus its lobbying efforts on during the State Legislative session. 

In addition, the Advocacy chair attends - hopefully with support from other Endeavour parents and the community - Focus Day to advance the cause of children and education funding during the Washington State Legislative Session in Olympia.

Your PTSA Advocacy representative is Meredith King.  Please contact Meredith at advocacy@endeavourptsa.org with any your advocacy concerns, questions or to get involved.
