We need Refreshments for Events!

Haven't been able to volunteer for an event, but would love to help out!?  We've got the job for you!  We need refreshments for the upcoming 5th Grade Orientations on February 1st & 2nd as well as for the National Junior Honor Society Reception on February 7th.  Sign-up and bring in 2 dozen cookies or a 24 case of water before the events.  Click the links below to get all the details! 

5th Grade Orientation - bring cookies and/or water by 3:30 PM to the school office by Feb 1

National Junior Honor Society Reception - bring cookies and/or water by 3:30 PM to the school office by Feb 7


WalkAbout Volunteers Needed Year Round!

Volunteers are needed for the WalkAbout program for the 2022-23 school year!  

We are excited to invite parent and community volunteers to assist with lunchtime WalkAbout for the 2022-23 school year.  This program was started many years ago and was scaled back during the pandemic.  It's fully returned now, and is a wonderful way to support and get involved with the school.  And, our school staff and students really appreciate it.  

What is it?  It's additional adult volunteer presence during high activity times to help staff be able to focus on the most pressing needs, knowing that there are other adults available to the kids who may need answers to questions, gentle reminders about school rules, or maybe even just a friendly smile in the middle of their day.  

SIGN UP HERE

IMPORTANT: All volunteers must meet the following criteria to be eligible to volunteer:
1) Be approved by the Issaquah School District to volunteer (See here). 
2) Sign up via this form so the school knows who to expect each day. 
3) View the walkabout training prior to your first shift, so you understand the expectations. 
4) Arrive in time to park and sign in at the office to get your daily security badge before the start of your "shift" (plan for approx 5 minutes).

Note: If you would like to volunteer at a different time other than before/after school or lunch, your help is also very welcome! Please email our volunteer coordinator at volunteers@issaquahmiddleptsa.org.

Message from the President

Hello Issaquah Middle PTSA community, 

Welcome to 2023!  Now in my second year as IMPTSA President, I am reminded of the saying “it takes a village.” It takes a village to support our community.  It takes a village to support our staff.  And, it really takes a village to support our students!  I am asking for your help, as a part of an amazing IMS community village, to support our students and show them through volunteerism and involvement that each student is VALUEDLOVED, and EMBRACED by the IMS community.  

We are so fortunate to have a school staff and principal that are innovative and work tirelessly to educate and support each and every student daily, but their efforts are only part of the village.  Our students need the whole village to support them and provide the connection they need. This is where YOU come in!  

We have been working with a small, but MIGHTY crew of volunteers over the past few years, but as restrictions have lifted, we are back with so many fun activities planned for our students and community in the coming months.  And, we need the whole village to help make those activities happen 

How can you help?  Be on the lookout for volunteer opportunities for all of the amazing programs we have lined up in the coming months.  Supporting these activities can be as easy as dropping off a few dozen cookies or cases of water.  Or we need plenty of volunteers to help set up for programs, pass out ice cream to our amazing MVP students, walking around the lunchroom to help support staff, and more.  Below are just a few of the things we have lined up:

  • Lip Sync Battle (Students vs. Staff) hosted by IMPTSA and ASB on February 9.  
  • 5th Grade Orientation (bring cookies & water for refreshments) for Feb 1 and 2.
  • Junior Honor Society reception (bring cookies & water for refreshments) for Feb 7.
  • “The Smart Talk” technology presentation for students and parents in March
  • Multi-Cultural Fair on April 27.
  • Pamper the Panther
  • Walkabout
  • 8thGrade Graduation
  • MVP
  • And more! 

If you would like to help, please sign-up or send me an email at president@issaquahmiddleptsa.org.  Looking forward to all the ways we can come together as a village to support our community and students.

Sincerely,

Cortney E. Eldridge
IMPTSA President
