Pedersen, Hart at PTSA Board Meeting — Tues., Jan. 9

State Sen. Jamie Pedersen

Hear from State Sen. Jamie Pedersen and Principal Tarance Hart at the next PTSA Board Meeting, 6:30-8 pm Tuesday, Jan. 9 (via Zoom).

Sen. Pedersen, a Garfield parent and 43rd District Democrat, will offer thoughts about education funding and other issues for the upcoming session of the Washington State Legislature. He’ll present ideas to help the Garfield community, led by the PTSA Advocacy Team, have an impact. 

Dr. Hart will present a school-news update, and take your questions!
