March 2018 Spotlight on Success

Issaquah Schools Foundation
March 2018 - Spotlight on Success
Made possible by YOU
"We just wanted to say thank you SO much for all of the time, effort and commitment you put into Robotics! After three years of my daughter participating in both your competitive and non-competitive Robotics teams, I have to say that this has been the single most influential and important extra-curricular activity during her middle school years." - Pacific Cascade Middle School Robotics team member parent
YOU make this possible. We see impact like this with students across the district, who are changed by the programs funded by the Issaquah Schools Foundation - all thanks to donors like you. 
Your Donation Dollars at Work 
STEMposium was a HIT
More than 530 students attended STEMposium on February 15. They visited dozens of booths demonstrating how the Issaquah School District integrates STEM skills and knowledge through classroom projects, after school clubs and student competitions. Local STEM-related industries also shared their work with students.
