WALKABOUT TRAINING
Thurs, Sept 28 from 7:00-8:30pm
 
Issaquah Middle School hosts an amazing program called Walkabout.  Its purpose is to bring parents into the school to walk the halls among the students in the mornings right before classes start, during lunches, and after school as the kids are getting ready to leave.  It’s easy, brief, flexible, and one of few opportunities middle school parents have to be around the kids, and allows IMS to have a positive adult presence at busy times during the school day.  You can walk alone or with another parent(s).  Once you receive training, you can choose to participate at whatever level suits you….once a year, every day, or anywhere in between.  If you’re interested, please save the date for training:  Thursday, Sept. 28 from 7:00-8:30pm.

REFLECTIONS CHAIR NEEDED
 
In the fall, the National PTSA sponsors Reflections, a contest that celebrates the arts: visual, written, musical, video and dance. This is a wonderful opportunity to highlight the talents of our artistic students.
The PTSA is searching for a chair to ensure that this program happens at IMS this fall.  
Chair responsibilities include:
Advertising and encouraging submissions throughout the fall, organizing and facilitating a judging, hosting a celebration event in coordination with our November evening PTSA event and preparing/delivering selected art pieces to the district level for further competition.
We have a dedicated board of directors willing to support you!
If you are interested and would like more information, please contact Kristen Allen-Bentsen at kallenbentsen@hotmail.com
