Call for Art!!
2017-2018 Student Art Calendar
Thanks to the support of the Seattle Times, every family and staff member in the Issaquah School District will once again receive a free print copy of the Student Art Calendar in the 2017-2018 school year—easy to hang on the wall to keep track of important school dates! Every current student in the district is invited to submit artwork to fill the pages for thousands of homes and offices. Get your creative juices flowing because the deadline is Friday, May 5, 2017.
We have some beautiful art in the hallways! Parents or docents with parent approval can submit student works of art for the calendar. What a great way to honor the students and our fantastic art docent program at IVE!
