Binder Bootcamp
Friday, January 20th
Binder Bootcamp is an ongoing initiative organized by IMS PTSA and supported by Issaquah Schools Foundation.  The goal is to help students who are struggling with organization which can lead to missed homework, misplaced completed homework and general angst!
Volunteers work one-to-one with students who are referred by teachers, counselors and parents. We provide a brief training and all the supplies needed to help students organize their binder.
The number of students we are able to help depends upon the number of volunteers.  Please consider helping with this worthwhile (and fun) activity and feel free to sign up for multiple shifts if you are able to give an entire morning or afternoon.
