Welcome back from Issaquah PTSA Council

August 21, 2012

Providing leadership, keeping  community informed

The Issaquah PTSA Council is gearing up to begin another successful school year in the district. Following last year, when we helped pass a bond at 70 percent to support our students in our district, I feel confident that we will have another fantastic year for all students in all Issaquah schools.

This year, the council board will meet for a retreat in August, when we will spend time getting to know one another and planning our goals for the year. The purpose of the council is leadership at the district level, but also to offer guidance and support to the PTSAs in each of our local schools. We are excited to support our local PTSAs in all of their endeavors as they continue to go beyond expectations from good to great. We want all of our units to be fun, productive and successful.

As we look forward to meeting new challenges that arise, we want to make sure that all levels of leadership are engaged. Last year, we had more than 14,000 members in Issaquah and we will look for ways to take our membership successes beyond the numbers to true involvement. We will seek input from our leaders and members to understand their needs and to find how we can be most effective. We want all of our members to be informed and to feel like they are truly part of the amazing association that is PTSA, always remembering that our mission is to support and speak on behalf of children.

So please join — be informed and speak up for your student. Remember your children need you at all stages of their educational career, and your support of PTSA is a great start!

    I trust you have read the letter to the editor in today’s I.P. The Foremans raise a legitimate concern. The permit should be rejected and the city code should be revised accordingly. Law needs to respect the rights of everyone, including (potential) victims, especially little ones. There is an issue of child endangerment here.

    I’d hate to see Issaquah hit the headlines with yet another school standoff.

    Have a phone conference and take a stand.

    I’m not sure if you got this.
