Reading is a Foundation for learning, and therefore we have a steadfast support for literacy needs in our district. Donors like YOU allow the Issaquah Schools Foundation to support literacy throughout the entire Issaquah School District!
Every year the Foundation donates books to every elementary school, middle school, and high school in our community.
Here's what some of our schools have to say!
“Oh my goodness, choosing these books brought tears to my eyes! I'm so excited to get these amazing titles in our library! I can't thank you enough for providing this generous gift to all of our kids.”
– Trisha Snyder, teacher librarian
"Thank you! This is so beneficial to our library and a great way to diversify our collection even more every year!"
– Jen Quimbey, Teacher-Librarian, Apollo Elementary School
"Thank you, ISF, for the delivery of these wonderful books! We’re all so excited to have these titles added to our collection for all of our students and community to enjoy. Thank you for this amazing continuing grant which we Teacher-Librarians look forward to discussing and planning for each school year."
