All volunteers must complete the online registration and be approved each school year.
If you were approved to volunteer last year, you will need to sign into the system, go to your check-off list and make sure all information is updated and current, then submit for approval for this new school year. New volunteers will need to complete the entire approval process before being able to volunteer.

We are looking for volunteers on October 1st to stand in front of Challenger- near the entrance facing Klahanie Blvd. to wave the Issaquah Schools Foundation fall campaign signs. Kids are welcome to join us too. Volunteers would be needed just before school starts (9:00-9:15 AM) and/or just after pick up at the end of the day (3:45- 4:00 PM). The honk & wave helps drive awareness of the Issaquah Schools Foundation around the district. Thank you for your help in promoting the Foundation! Hope to see you there!
Calling all STEM fans!! Challenger Elementary PTA has proudly sponsored a STEM/Science fair for over 5 years. It is a well loved and attended event held in March. Currently, we do not have anyone to chair this event. It takes an estimated 15-20 hours. If you are interested, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Without a chair, this event cannot happen so grab a few friends and help us make it happen! Thanks for considering.
Do you have a passion for art? Do you want to help foster that love in our Challenger students? Challenger Elementary is need of help for the our Reflections program. Reflections is a National PTA arts recognition program that helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful not only in school, but in life. Time commitment is roughly 10-15 hours between now and November. Please consider stepping up to chair this wonderful program. Unfortunately, without enough volunteers, we are unable to provide this program for our students, which would make for some disappointed students. If interested, please reach out to Kendra or Lisa at
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org

*PTA Membership is only good for one school year. If you signed up last year, THANK YOU, you account has expired.

The Issaquah School Board of Directors passed a resolution for a replacement Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) levy to be placed on the February 11, 2020 ballot. Voters will have an opportunity to maintain current funding for programs such as career and technical education, mental health counselors, dual language, and safety. This levy would replace the levy approved by voters in 2018 that expires at the end of 2020.
