We Need Judges For The Reflections Art Contest

The submission deadline for the National PTA Reflections Art contest is TODAY, OCT. 28 at 3:30pm. Drop submissions in the box outside the PTSA office by then.

We need judges! The contest categories span Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts, Film/Video, and Choreography/Dance so if you have experience in any of those (or even if you don’t), we need your help. The time commitment is minimal. Contact Alice Kim at if you’re interested or if you know someone who may be.

Our Food Drive Continues Through October 30

This is the last week to donate non-perishable items to benefit the Issaquah Food Bank. Donations will be accepted through Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Deposit donations into one of the bins at school by the main office or foot of the stairs. The bins are labeled “Dress Alike Day” and “Dream Job Day”. At the end of the Food Drive, whichever bin has collected the most food will determine which kind of fun day the whole school will have. Find a list of needed items at
