PTA BOX TOP COLLECTION

Our next box top turn in deadline in February 15th, so please continue to turn in box tops. Collection sheets can be found on the PTA board just inside the main school doors. Or, just put them into a Ziploc bag with the name of your child's teacher on the bag. For your convenience, there is a collection box in the office.

The class that turns in the most box tops by the deadline will be awarded coupons for a free frozen yogurt at TCBY. So, start saving your box tops today!

The Superintendent has created a draft interpretation and invites the community to provide input into this interpretation. Once the Superintendent is satisfied with the interpretation, he and his team will begin to collect the evidence that must be brought forward for monitoring purposes. The ISD Board of Directors is scheduled to perform its first monitoring of EL-16 at the January 23, 2019 school board meeting.

The Draft Interpretation of EL-16 is available for review or download on our website at https://www.issaquah.wednet.edu/district/equity/el-16-equity

Again, we welcome and hope to hear your feedback and comments. Please provide input on the draft interpretation by emailing us at Equity@Issaquah.Wednet.edu
