Thank you to all IVE students (and their parents!) for signing up for Science Fair on Friday, February 26th! Boards and instructions can be picked up starting Wednesday, January 20th in the IVE Volunteer Room. You can either send your child down to pick them up or parents can stop by if your child is riding the bus. Given the tremendous number of students participating, we are need of numerous volunteers and judges. Please sign up online at ivepta.org if you are able to help out! If you have any questions please email email@example.com.
Reflections Art contest update....
This year the theme was "Let your Imagination Fly." IVE had 12 finalists that were sent from the school level to the district level for judging. There were a total of 256 finalists selected from all of the Issaquah schools and the Issaquah PTSA Council moved 53 entries forward to be sent on the State competition. Of those 53 chosen, 3 of the students were from IVE!
Congratulations to Haelyn Jeon (Grade K), Rose Taheri (Grade 1), and Jhacoli Yang (Grade 5)!
Way to go! Good luck and many Congratulations!
The 2016-2017 theme is: "What is Your Story?" All information about the Reflections program and art contest will be available at the beginning of the school year in the Fall.
