Issaquah’s Zeeks Pizza invites the community to order a pizza and simultaneously donate to elementary school science materials.

Customers can contribute to the cause from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday at the Issaquah Highlands pizzeria, 2525 N.E. Park Drive. Issaquah councilman and restaurant franchise owner Mark Mullet will donate 20 percent of sales, including dine-in, delivery and pick-up, to the Issaquah Elementary Science Initiative.

The initiative, a partnership between the Issaquah Schools Foundation, the Issaquah PTSA Council and the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce, has raised $318,000 of the $500,000 needed for the Issaquah School District to purchase an updated elementary science curriculum. The current curriculum is 10 years old and does not meet state standards.

After school hours, Grand Ridge Elementary School teachers will help serve orders at Zeeks.

Raising money for elementary science would help every kindergarten through fifth-grader in the district, Mullet said.

“The schools are why I moved to Issaquah,” he added. “If it wasn’t for good schools, I know I wouldn’t be living here.”
