Levy Election - thank you!

Thank you for Voting and Renewing the Educational Programs and Operations Levy!
Thank you to our community for renewing our two-year Educational Programs and Operations Levy! Your support for ISD schools ensures local kids will continue to receive a high quality education in a safe learning environment. Early election returns show the levy passing by 61.5%. To pass, levies in Washington State must receive more than 50% approval by voters.

STEMposium Night!

We were very proud of these students at last night's STEMposium; they were amazing! They did a great job of teaching the community about the design process and making of wind turbines.

Congratulations on a job well done to Abigail, Ayan, Emilio, Jacobson, Avery, Zoe and Estelle, pictured with 4th grade teacher, Tatum Phillips.
