We are now accepting procurement donations.

IS PTSA's biggest fundraising event of the year is rapidly approaching and we need your help! We are looking for donations from our parent community for the auction being held at our spring social. Not sure what to give? Here are some ideas: restaurant gift cards, tickets to any professional sporting event or theater production, gift certificates to your favorite spa or exercise place, vacation home stays, dinner parties, wine bottles (value of at least $25 per bottle). Procuring items is easy, fun, and for a great cause - our students! Procurement forms are available to download here.

We also accept cash donations or checks (payable to ISPTSA) to procure wine for our popular wine pull. Please drop off your envelope marked "wine pull" in our PTSA inbox (located in the school's main office).

If you have a business you'd like to advertise to our community, we are seeking sponsors for our event! Contact, and we'll work with you on a sponsorship package that fits your needs!

If you have questions or would like to join the team organizing this fun event, please contact
