The Fall Fundraiser is officially underway!             

Let’s RAISE THE TORCH for IS as we begin a new school year with a donation to the Fall Fundraiser! 

We invite all families to participate in this campaign because your contribution, no matter the amount, makes a difference! We ALL benefit from the community, academic excellence, and reputation our students were fortunate to join. This is our chance to give back and build on that legacy.
