Lunch for the Break – Supporting Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank
School breaks should be exciting, but for some students no school means not enough food. “Lunch for the Break” works to make sure all ISD kids have enough to eat, even when school’s not in session. You can help by donating a box (or two, or three) by
registering HERE to donate these
items, or donate a
pre-made box. If you would like to contribute, but neither of those options work, consider making a
financial contribution to help purchase perishables. Each box costs $45 to fill, pack, and deliver. December 19, 2018 is the last day to donate. Your donations will directly impact families experiencing food insecurity in our community.
Thank you so much for your support! Visit
Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank for more information.

Patriots Fight Poverty!
From November 13-November 21, Liberty Patriots are raising money and collecting canned food items for the Issaquah Food Bank with a class competition food drive. There are also stickers for sale (two stickers for three dollars). If we reach our goal of
$1500.00 and 500 lbs of food, the school will be treated to the ASB male officers and select class members of the winning class having their legs waxed during an LSN production.
Please bring canned food items to the commons anytime during the day. Stickers are available at lunches and donations are accepted during that time, as well.

Community Input Sought on Draft Interpretation of EL-16 Equity Policy
Last spring, the Issaquah School Board of Directors adopted a new Executive Limitation on Equity, called EL-16. We are now in the first phase of monitoring which requires the Superintendent to provide an interpretation of each sub bullet within the Executive
Limitation. 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
Again, we welcome and hope to hear your feedback and comments. Please provide input on the draft interpretation by emailing us at

Final Days - Fall Play
In the 1920s the United States Radium Corporation hired hundreds of young women to paint the dials on watches and clocks. The paint glowed in the dark. It was mixed with radium. Many of the girls who worked in the factory started to get mysterious ailments.
The company denied all wrongdoing, but some of the young women fought back.
Radium Girls by D. W. Gregory is their story.
