Become a Grade-Level Parent Representative! 
  
If you are interested in getting to know other parents from your child(ren)'s grade, this is a perfect volunteer opportunity! Parent representatives plan grade-level parent/guardian social events, organize parents to support staff appreciation, and act as another channel of information in support of ISPTSA.
 
A detailed list of the responsibilities for each grade level can be found here.
 
Please sign up here or contact vpcommunity@isptsa.org to apply!

 


 
What could you expect to do as a Bellevue Schools Foundation Ambassador?
 
Enable the Bellevue Schools Foundation to establish and maintain two-way conversations between your unique school community and the Foundation.
 
Help your school's parents & teachers access BSF programming by:
 
Help BSF educate parents about donation opportunities by:
  • Putting out signs and information to promote the All in for Kids/Click-a-Thon campaign
  • Distributing information about ways that BSF supports your school in your newsletters, social media, at PTSA meetings, and at school events
  • Talking to parents and staff at the school to promote the Foundation
  • Helping to coordinate tables at Spring for Schools
This open communication ensures that the Foundation is working to fulfill the needs of your school through its funding priorities, and that your school is aware of the programs and initiatives the Foundation funds. The more that the Foundation is aware of what is happening in your school, the better job it can do of supporting you. The more your parents know about the Foundation, the more likely they are to donate. 
 
The Bellevue Schools Foundation is in need of an IS ambassador. This is a great opportunity to be involved in our school and community. If interested or just want to learn more, please contact carmen@bsfdn.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.

DO YOU WANT A VOICE IN DECIDING FUTURE CURRICULUM FOR OUR 6TH & 7TH GRADERS?
 
 
If the answer is yes, keep reading! The 6th and 7th grade Human Geography curriculum will begin the process of textbook adoption shortly. The committee needs an International School parent to serve on the committee and provide a community/parent perspective. The process will begin in December and end in June. The committee will meet at International School a few times throughout the year to preview and discuss textbooks under consideration. The time commitment is about 15-20 hours total, including time at home reading. 
 
If you are interested in serving our school community in this way, please complete this form, save it, and return it to Janet Towne via email (townej@bsd405.org) or by delivering your printed form to the International School Office.  

 

COMPUTER CLUB ADVISOR NEEDED NOW!
 
The PTSA is sponsoring a computer club at IS for the third year. There are 40 students interested in being a part of the computer club, however, we need an advisor or two to volunteer their help in order to keep it going. The time commitment is once per week for an evening meeting.
If you are interested, please contact  vpoutreach@isptsa.org.
