What Exactly Is Panther Days and Do I Need to Go?
 
Panther Days at IMS are two days when families can come to the school to take care of paperwork, bookkeeping, and other administrative tasks well before school officially starts. 
 
While no one is required to go to Panther Days, there are a lot of good reasons to stop by this Tuesday or Wednesday. Here are a few of those reasons:
  • Pick up your PE uniform
  • Get your locker assignment. You can visit the locker and practice opening it as much as you want! (Personal experience shows this alone is worth the visit.)
  • Drop off sports and medical forms
  • Check on immunization records
  • Pay fees and add money to your student's lunch accounts (although doing this online is almost always quicker)
  • Get answers to any questions you might have. Representatives from IMS, the Parent Teacher Student Association, and the Issaquah Schools Foundation will all be present to answer your questions.
  • And, of course, visit the PTSA table for information about how the PTSA benefits the students, staff, and families of the IMS community and what volunteering looks like at the middle school level.
Remember that lines are typically longer at the beginning and end of each day. Questions? Contact Carla Geraci, IMPTSA President.

School Supply Lists Now Available

For those of you wanting to avoid some of the end-of-summer craziness, the school supply lists for IMS grades 6-8 are now available here. 

Volunteer Dashboard

We need your help stuffing Back-to-School packets 10:00 to noon on August 28th -- quick and easy!

Mark your calendar for Student Picture Day, which is September 6th at IMS. Volunteers earn a special perk of a voucher for a free photo packet!

Salmon Days Parking (Oct. 5-6) is a fun and easy fundraiser that proved to be a great success last year. Our experienced co-chair from last year needs 1-2 additional co-chairs this year. It's a great way to get involved without a huge time commitment. You’ll have lots of support from the PTSA Board, so this is very doable for working parents. This is also an awesome role to take on together with a friend! Contact Carla Geraci to get more information or to express interest. 

IMPORTANT:  don’t forget to update your annual Volunteer Application before your shift.

Angel Program

The Angel Program provides funds for IMS students to ensure their basic needs are met. It is a confidential, behind-the-scenes PTSA program made possible by monetary and supply donations from IMS families.

Please consider making a monetary donation by donating online or sending a check to IMS made payable to the IMPTSA with "Angel Program" in the memo line.

If you would like to be contacted during the school year when supplies such as furniture, bedding, and toiletries are needed, please sign-up to be added to the Angel Student Assistance program list on the volunteer interest page.

If you are in need of help this year, please contact the school counselors directly.  The Angel Program would love to support your child.

If you have any questions about this program, please contact us at angelstudentassistance@issaquahmiddleptsa.org.
