May 28, 2013
The Issaquah School Board approved nearly $30,000 worth of donations to the district during its May 8 regular meeting.
The bulk of the money, $19,135, came from the Issaquah Schools Foundation to support students in the district with robotics in the classroom. The foundation also donated another $5,245 to provide supplement funding for portable technology throughout the schools.
Students at Newcastle Elementary School got an extra boost from their PTSA, which donated $5,556 to offset the costs of fifth-grade environment camp.
