CHOICE Academy Parent Support Organization – an organization of parents fiscally sponsored by the Highline Schools Foundation – is partnering with Azteca Mexican Restaurants to donate T-shirts to students for Field Day, the last day of the 2022-23 school year.

Azteca, with locations in Burien and Tukwila, has made a donation in support of the purchase, with both locations’ separate ownerships showing support for the school’s initiative.

  • CHOICE Academy is a small school with around 180 students for grades 6-12, which offers a smaller educational environment with more flexibility.
  • It has won several awards for academic excellence and has stand-out test scores for the district.
  • The Highline School District is a low-income majority-minority district, and the CHOICE Academy Parent Support Organization aims to provide some extras for the students and support the teachers and staff.

“The PSO fell into dormancy over the pandemic, but we’ve managed to get back up and running and the parents have come through on a number of occasions to help with events. It was quite a struggle to revive the organization, which is one reason why it’s so heartening to see community support like this,” said Beth Quittman, President of CHOICE Academy Parent Support Organization.

Support by Buying Butter Braids

The PSO is selling Butter Braids, a frozen filled pastry, to raise the remaining funds needed for the project.

Supporters who wish to take part in the fundraiser can do so online at: /2475963 

…and pick up their purchases on May 26 or donate their purchases to local homeless shelter Mary’s Place.

“Azteca Mexican Restaurants, a locally-owned business with its Burien headquarters building located right next to the HSD headquarters, is happy to show their support for the school’s initiative,” organizers said,

“Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, and Azteca Mexican Restaurants is the perfect place to celebrate while showing appreciation for their community spirit.”
