Volunteer Dashboard

Our next Binder Bootcamp of the year is just around the corner on Friday, Jan. 31st, and we need your help! Binder Bootcamp is an ongoing initiative organized by IMPTSA and supported by Issaquah Schools Foundation to help students who are struggling with organization which can lead to missed homework, misplaced homework, and general angst.

Our volunteers work 1:1 with students who are referred by teachers, counselors, and parents. If you can recognize a tidy, organized binder and can offer common-sense suggestions for keeping homework together, then you have all the skills required to work with students. We provide a brief training and all the supplies needed to help students organize their binders.

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

IMS Annual Career Day - February 7th

IMS is looking for parents, guardians and community members to give a short presentation about their current or past career and pathway. Please share this with family and friends who have interesting or unusual careers or have a unique story of how they ended up there. The school needs a wide variety of professionals to make this a well-rounded event for students to learn about something they might like to pursue in the future. Everyone is welcome to come and share.

Please contact IMS Counselor Oracio Valdez for more information or to sign up.

Plugged-in Parents: Keeping Kids Safe, Happy & Healthy in the Digital Age - 2/10

Even the most in-tune parents could use some extra tips for keeping up with the fast-changing media landscape. Local Issaquah mental health therapist specializing in technology fixation, and youth screen time use, Jocelyn Skillman, partners with nationally acclaimed Common Sense Media to deliver a comprehensive presentation addressing the biggest concerns parents of elementary and middle schoolers have: managing screen time, getting a cellphone, cyberbullying, social media, apps, and more.

Jocelyn leads a thought-provoking discussion to help parents determine how to use media in balance as a family, find quality content, set expectations around healthy use to prevent conflict, and raise our kids to be media-savvy consumers and creators. The event starts at 7:00 pm on Feb. 10th at Issaquah High School.  For PARENTS of grades K-8. Register here.
