PTSA MEMBERSHIP CREATES COMMUNITY - JOIN US AND ENJOY THE BENEFITS!
 
Thank you to the almost 465 parents and teachers that have joined ISPTSA. Our goal is 586 members for 100% full school membership, and we are almost 80% there, so become a community supporter. Please Join Us!
 
Below is our current PTSA membership listed by grades. The percentages indicate the number of students supported by PTSA members in each grade. A bit more membership support in each grade would be amazing! Membership in PTA advocates for all of our students—at the administration level, the district level, and the state level. 
 
  • 6th Grade 68%
  • 7th Grade 52% 
  • 8th Grade 44% 
  • 9th Grade 53%
  • 10th rade 44% 
  • 11th Grade 64%
  • 12th Grade 57%
 
Students can join too—everybody counts toward full school membership. Did you know we have more than 10 students as members? Students can attend the PTSA legislative assembly, be on the ISPTSA grants committee, and vote on our budget at general membership meetings.
 
We have nearly 100% teacher/staff participation—thank your students' teachers for supporting ISPTSA!
 
If you'd like to see who is supporting our Community to Success at IS, check out our listing as of October 25.
 
Please contact  membership@isptsa.org with any questions.

TLDR? (Too Long; Didn't Read)   

   

With recommendations from several other Bellevue schools and sports teams, the ISPTSA uses the opt-in service via Remind.com to send day-before reminder texts for events. 

Simply sign up here and provide your phone number to receive texts. There's no need to download the app, unless you prefer to, and you can leave the service anytime, if you don't find it useful. 

Sample text: "PTSA General Meeting & Pasta Dinner, tomorrow night 10/10 at 6:00pm. See you there!" would be scheduled to go out on 10/9 at 10:00 AM.
