Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! 1160 members have joined the IH PTSA thus far this year and made very generous donations to our Pass-the-Hat and Angel funds. Thank you. We are off to a very strong start.
The generosity of our membership base allows us to broaden existing programs and events and introduce new ones. Two new events this year are coming right up. IH PTSA and the IHS College and Career Center will co-sponsor the College Resource Fair on Sept 27, 2016. This event, offered for the first time at IHS, will provide parents and students valuable information about college and other post-graduation options. We will also partner with ASB for the Color Run on Friday, Oct 14, 2016. This event, open to students, parents, and community members, extends the fun of homecoming and the spirit of IHS to the entire community.
Are there other programs or events that you would like PTSA to offer? We’d love to hear your ideas.
Thank you for your ongoing support and all the best to your students and your family for a great school year!

The Angel Program strives to provide basic essentials to Eagle families that may have current and/or short term financial difficulties. Thank to you the many caring parents that donated to the program during the registration process.
This year the program will provide school supplies, toiletries, food support, new clothing and school related items.
We are currently accepting short dresses for Homecoming until October 3rd. We are also taking donations of NEW socks and underwear, and graduation gowns if your recently graduated senior doesn’t care to keep theirs. Items may be brought to the front office.
Thank you to the caring Issaquah community for helping every Issaquah Eagle reach their potential!
