December 2017 - Spotlight on Success

THANK YOU for your support of our Teachers!

Last week on GIVING TUESDAY, YOU donated over $7,000 in honor of the wonderful teachers in the Issaquah School District.

Each of the 80 plus teachers received a personal email notifying them of the gift made in their honor and sharing the message from the donor - just like this one: 

Thank you for always recognizing the individuality of the student and seeking out ways to help them thrive.  You truly made a difference for my son!
