Board of Directors

Eatonville is a great place to live and learn!

It takes a village to raise a child and Eatonville has a long history of working together for our kids. We were one of the first communities in the nation to levy a school tax in 1915 to build state of the art facilities. The foothill communities of Ashford, Elbe, and Alder came together to build Columbia Crest after World War II and joined with Eatonville to increase educational opportunities for their children.

The community continues to support its schools through PTA and PTO groups, booster clubs, after school activities, sports and the continued passage of levies and bonds to provide enrichments important to the community children who live in and around Eatonville.

Most importantly is the community commitment to values like curiosity, excellence and responsibility that make for strong learners. The demand for excellence has led to many, many awards for our district. Each of our elementary schools is a STEM Lighthouse award winner. We have won state awards for schools of distinction, innovation and achievement. We have been recognized by the private sector as a Google Reference District, an AP Honor Roll school and Nisqually Land Trust Partner of the Year.

Our graduation rate has climbed year after year, reaching over ninety-six percent. This kind of success can only happen with the efforts of not only teachers, but from all of our school employees, families and the community all working together for all our students.

Our children will have jobs that do not exist today. It is an honor to represent our community and help create a culture of lifelong learners that are ready to seize the future and be successful at whatever they choose to be.

Sincerely,

Jeff Lucas

Chairman to the Board of Directors
