The PTSA board passed out  almost 500 cookies and treats to the welcoming students during break last Thursday.  We were celebrating the 100% membership which means each and every student is supported by our PTSA members for their academic success.  Community Creates Success at IS.








A Big Thank you to each and every PTSA member of our IS Community. We reached the goal of 100% March 1st, 2018. What this goal means is that for 565 students, each and every student at IS is supported and cheered on for their success by a PTSA member. As a unique choice school in the Bellevue School District, we are showing the community that "Community Creates Success at IS". We reached 100% staff membership too. Membership still matters, if you haven't joined yet, Please Join Us!. Or if you would prefer to send in a check, download and fill out the form and drop it off at the office

Any questions, please contact Joanie Chang at  membership@isptsa.org.
