Goodwill Industries - Wikipedia SAVE THE DATE: Goodwill Drive

Start gathering up your donations! The International School PTSA will be hosting a Goodwill Drive on Saturday, November 20th from 9:00am-12:00pm.
Clothes, shoes, household items, small electronics, books, toys, sporting goods and accessories can be collected. Please no large furniture. Goodwill is also a certified E-Waste recycler so they will take computers, peripherals, televisions, monitors and other e-waste. 

Join Us!

Now is the time to sign up or renew your PTSA membership!

By becoming a PTSA member, you help build a strong community of support for our students and teachers. We manage and vote on a budget to create educational opportunities for students and allow teachers to provide 21st century teaching methods for our students.  We are the only high school in Washington state that reached 100% membership (meaning every student is supported by a member), but we need to build it every year. Help us to achieve that 100% support again for our community.

This year we have a new Family membership. This family membership can be for 2 adults and a student, or 3 adults, or an adult and 2 students. No matter the combination, your membership will support the PTSA and all that we do for the success of our school and your students.

Membership categories

               Family: $35

               Dual: $25

               Single: $15          

               Student: $15                               

               IS Teacher/Staff: $10                

Choose any of these memberships and complete the registration.

We encourage everyone to voluntarily decide to become PTSA members. With that thought, we encourage teachers and staff to voluntarily join. Please do NOT buy memberships for teachers and staff. We will need to refund that money to you. Instead, purchase a membership scholarship for $5.00. We not only offer but encourage teachers and staff to join with a scholarship fee but it is a voluntary decision. Thank you for your understanding.

A membership scholarship is available to anyone, without regard to need. Just choose a Fee-waived membership and complete the registration. All memberships levels and fee-waived are confidential. We take PayPal and checks. Any questions, please contact
