I can't believe the school year is almost done, and my son has made it clear that he's looking forward to a long break from math homework. As a result, I'm making a list of activities that will sneak in math skills without him knowing, like cooking, baking, and measuring projects around our home.
Here at League of Education Voters, we're ushering in summer by engaging parents and community members, creating advocacy plans, and conducting research on important issues such as early childhood education and helping students feel a greater sense of belonging at school. We greatly appreciate the responses from last month's statewide funding priorities survey.
Also, the Washington Supreme Court today ruled that the state Legislature has satisfied the McCleary school funding case. Thanks to you, we helped direct $8.3 billion of state money toward educating our kids! While we appreciate all the work done so far by the Legislature, the fight continues to create and fund a system that drives resources first to our students who need the most support.

Thank you for everything you do for Washington's students - we're all in this together.
