*Remember that you need to have completed background check with the Bellevue School District in order to help in the classrooms, with special events or teacher needs, school events, and field trips. Renewal will be needed every three years and your approved volunteer status will now be linked to Synergy/ParentVUE. Find out more about the new BSD volunteer verification system here.


Spring Social
Register Today for Spring into Action, the PTSA Annual Spring Social and Fundraiser.
Join us on Saturday, March 23, at 6:00 PM at Blakely Hall in Issaquah for this wonderful community event.
Proceeds from the event fund needs that are not covered by the school’s budget. For more information on what your donation supports please click hereAlso, the Spring Social is F-U-N! We’ll have great food and drinks in a fun, casual environment. Tickets are limited, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to support our kids, celebrate our wonderful IS community, and join together in one common goal.
Ticket prices are $55 per person and include a delicious buffet. Smart/casual attire is encouraged, but please know that your presence is what matters most. Click here to register now!
We need your help!  Donate, procure, or sponsor a teacher's ticket here. The Spring Social Committee is still accepting auction item donations and event sponsorships, so if you are able, please consider supporting the PTSA in this way. 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 venue, vacation-home stays, dinner parties, bottles of wine (value of at least $25 per bottle). Procurement forms are also 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).
Contact Sylvia Abrahamsson at SpringSocial@isptsa.org
We hope to see you there!

ISPTSA Nominating Committee Needs Your Help! 
The ISPTSA needs 3-4 people to be on its Nominating Committee. Not sure how a nominating committee works? You can find the details here. In a nutshell, the Nominating Committee contacts potential candidates to fill next year’s volunteer openings—either by phone, email, or in-person—with the purpose of describing the volunteer position and asking if the person would be willing to consider filling the position.  
The ideal nominating committee member is one who is friendly, outgoing, and has lots of connections. Please consider joining the Nominating Committee. It is very likely the most influential committee and has a huge impact on future years at International. The time commitment is a few hours per week from March through mid-April. We will vote on our slate of candidates at the PTSA General Membership Meeting on April 17. If you have any interest or additional questions, please contact Ching Guo, president@isptsa.org.


Opening For School Office Volunteer
There is an opening in the school office for a volunteer on Fridays from 11:15 AM–1:15 PM. It is currently an every-week position, but could be broken into an every-other-Friday position if two people wanted to share it. Please contact Liz VandenBerghe in the main office if you are interested. It’s a great way to see the inner workings of the school and office—and to see first-hand what your student might not be sharing with you about what goes on at school! vandenberghel@bsd405.org



On-call Volunteers 
ISPTSA is routinely asked, sometimes last minute, by our school for volunteers to help out at events. To facilitate our response, we have created a new volunteer category called on-call volunteer. This is not a fixed commitment; we will reach out to you when we have an urgent need to fill, and you can respond if you can help. Having your name on this list does not obligate you to volunteer at any time.
Please consider adding your name to our on-call volunteer list! You can reach our sign-up here. We ask that you sign in for security reasons, and the "on-call volunteer" choice is the second one from the bottom of the page.
