Welcome Class 2026! 

We are so glad you'll be joining our community!
Here are some helpful information for new families.

Last PTSA General Membership Meeting of the year

 Thursday, June 13, 6:00–6:30 PM
 
Yes, it's the same evening as Senior Project Open House! Please join us half-an-hour before the open house for the last General Membership Meeting. We only have two agenda items: to approve next year's budget, and to vote in next year's ISPTSA board members. We'll have treats and coffee/tea before you go to the open house.

 


 

Another Successful Focus Week in the Books! 

 

Thank you to IS staff for all you do to provide so many amazing opportunities for our students!
 
IS students were all over the Seattle area and the world accessing quality work and experiences, developing strong rapport with adults, and cultivating relationships with students outside of their usual social groups in stimulating environments beyond their regular curriculum and classrooms. 
 
A tremendous amount of organization and planning goes into Focus Week every year—bus trips, meal catering, outside vendors & venues, community experts, travel, volunteers. Please take a moment to thank the teachers and staff members who made it all happen. 
 
Have a look at all the places IS students went, opportunities they were given, and incredible things they created! More photos can be seen here! Watch a video of IS students on television in Taiwan here!

TLDR? (Too Long; Didn't Read)                      

This school year, the IS PTSA, with recommendations from several other Bellevue schools and sports teams, will be implementing an opt-in service via Remind.com to send day-before reminder texts for events. 

Simply sign up here and provide your phone number to receive texts. There's no need to download the app, unless you prefer to, and you can leave the service anytime, if you don't find it useful. 

Sample text: "PTSA General Meeting & Pasta Dinner, tomorrow night 10/10 at 6:30pm. See you there!" would be scheduled to go out on 10/9 at 10:00 AM.
