Happy Holidays!
On behalf of the staff of Issaquah Valley, I would like to thank our amazing parents, volunteers and greater learning community for its involvement in our school and in our students’ lives. I am grateful every day to work alongside such dedicated and generous families. Winter break is an opportune time to reflect with your loved ones on the positives in your lives whether they be in your home, our community, or our world. Wishing everyone a happy holiday and a safe New Year. We look forward to welcoming back students in 2018! - Michelle Pickard


Food Drive
The IVE Food Drive was a HUGE success! Our students collected a whopping 815 pounds of food to donate to the Issaquah Food Bank. This student-initiated service project is a great example of the power of kindness and compassion. So proud of our students for building it up!


Parking and Drop Off
If you are attending to business in the office we ask that you park in one of the IVE parking lots; please do not park in the drop off lane. Also, all students that walk to school or are dropped off need to enter the building from the blacktop. We ask that parents and students not use the front building entrance, please walk around the building. Thank you for your cooperation on these matters.
