Join The IVE PTA Kindness Rocks Week!

The Kindness Rock Project Mission: One message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire day, outlook, or life. Cougars, let’s create kindness rocks! Find a rock, then paint or draw a design and/or write a kind message on it. Place them around your neighborhood. Then, take a family walk and find these beautiful messages! Leave them in their spots for others to enjoy. Show us your kindness rock findings by tagging #issaquahvalleyelementarypta and make your post public on Facebook. Rock on!

IVE PTA Community Outreach Donation

During our General Membership PTA Meeting on March 24th, the IVE PTA Board proposed a $500 community outreach donation to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank. With a unanimous vote by our members, we were able to gift the donation last week.

We are proud to contribute to our Issaquah community. If you are looking to donate to IFCB here is the link: https://issaquahfoodbank.org/donate. Take care, and stay well!

Volunteers Needed

Partnering with Issaquah Schools Foundation to Support Our Community

ISF needs your help, now more than ever, to assist families in our community. The ISF is partnering with the Issaquah Food & Clothing bank to ensure students' nutritional needs are being met through this ongoing school closure. We are asking donors to purchase boxes of food directly through Supply All Kids, who will purchase food and pack boxes to distribute at the food bank. You may also contribute directly to the Foundation and we will direct additional support to current and emerging needs during this time.

We Need YOUR Photos!

The majority of the yearbook pictures are taken by our wonderful parents & volunteers of IVE. We want you to submit pictures from school events and community activities. We strive to have every child in the yearbook a few times. Click HERE to learn how to upload your pictures. Email yearbook@ivepta.org with questions.
