Please mark you calendars and spread the word. As you may already know, the Mountlake Terrace Elementary building is being rebuilt which means the old building is being torn down starting this July. There is so much history at this school, and many people have mixed emotions. We are planning a MTE Reunion that will occur as a part of our Annual PTO BBQ and Egg Drop on Friday, June 9. The Reunion will begin at 5PM, followed by the BBQ and Egg Drop from 6-8. We invite all of our current and former staff, students, and families to this event. This will be a wonderful time to share stories and memories, and to say goodbye to our old school. More information will follow.
Are you new to our school area? Welcome! All students within Mountlake Terrace Elementary's regular boundaries will attend the Woodway site for the 2017-2018 school year while our new building is built. School buses will be provided for ALL students. Bus routes and schedules will be announced during the summer. Please register as soon as possible so that you can receive important communication from our school.
We will post new school building information on the "New School Building" page which is under the "About Us" tab at the top of this page. Click here to be taken there directly. Information will also come home via the Family Newsletter email. Please make sure that we have your current email and phone numbers. You can do this in Skyward or by sending a written note into the office.

August 21st - 25th Jump Start to Kindergarten - A week of school in August!
We are very proud at Mountlake Terrace Elementary of our annual Jump Start to Kindergarten program. This program brings incoming Kindergartners to Mountlake Terrace Elementary for a week. They have the whole place to themselves to experience life on our campus, become familiar with caring staff members, and build bond with new friends.
We also get a chance to know your children to help place them in the very best classroom for their strengths and needs. Please note that Jump Start will take place at the Woodway Elementary site (our location for the 2017/18 school year). Please plan to make every effort to have your child attend all five days. We notice a real difference in students’ experience when they are able to participate in Jump Start. We can’t wait to get to know your child!
August 21st - Kindergarten Parent Orientation
Jump Start isn’t just for your kids; you get to take part as well! We offer our Parent Orientation just after you drop your students at class for Jump Start. Please plan to join us on Monday, August 21st - 9 AM in the Woodway Library.
