Community Creates Success: You play a powerful role  

A tripod has a very strong support base, making it a very functional and strong design that has been used throughout the centuries across many cultures.  "Community Creates Success at IS" our ISTPSA theme for this year.  Like the tripod, it has the 3 legs of support for our students and community. Membership in our PTSA is one leg of support. Financial support is another leg and participation is the third leg. Our IS community made up of students, parents, teachers and our school,  sits on top of this supporting structure.  

Membership, and the reasons we need every family supporting us as a member, has been our emphasis in the first part of the school year. Currently, our Fall fundraising campaign is kicking off! This financial support is necessary to keep our IS community stable and successful.

In the next couple of weeks, you will receive a letter from our PTSA. This letter will ask for you to become a PTSA member and to support our fundraising campaign by donating $75 per family.  Please take the time to respond to this appeal. Many of you, the PTSA membership and a generous donation is already completed. Thank you for your continued support!

The third leg necessary to keep our community stable is participation. Stay tuned for more on this in the coming weeks.
