Sage fosters success for children | Letter

I am writing today in support of Cassandra Sage for Lake Washington School District, director number three. Cassandra has worked for more than 20 years as a PTA chair, and as an advocate for students and parents in Lake Washington schools. She has been a leader in making public education better at every grade level and at many schools in Kirkland.

Cassandra supports our choice schools and wants to expand them to include students on their lengthy waiting lists. These schools, such as environmental and science as well as STEM allow students to achieve their goals in the environment that suits them best. She wants our high schools to better prepare students for the future, which includes a renewed emphasis on vocational education for students who do not plan to pursue a four-year college.

Cassandra’s resume for school board leadership is superlative and her energy and positive attitude will be contagious. She has become a friend of mine and I know that she will be fantastic as a leader in fostering success for our children.

Please join me in voting for Cassandra Sage, Lake Washington School District, director number three.
