It's almost time for the Fall Book Fair! Our Arctic Adventure book fair is quickly approaching. This is a multi day event (Monday November 18-22 ) with multiple shift to allow time for our kiddo to do their book fair shopping during recess and after school with parental supervision. Currently, we do not have enough volunteers to safely and efficiently run our Fall Book Fair at this time. Unfortunately, if we do not have enough volunteers by Tuesday, November 12, we will have to cancel the event. If you're able to help we would be so grateful. You do not need to be a PTA member to help unless you are handling money. Thank you! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050A48A4A923A13-fall

PTA Classroom Membership Incentive Contest

In order to make our membership goal, we are having a Classroom Incentive Contest through the end of December. Every class that earns 100% participation will get an ice cream party! Here's the scoop: To qualify there needs to be one PTA member per student in each class. For example-25 students would need 25 members. Family memberships are just $20 and confidential scholarships are available for those in need. Remember that being a member doesn't require you to volunteer or attend meetings! Please see the Flyer for more information.

Join HERE or use the Membership Form.

Members are like Ice Cream. There's always room for more! 

 

 


 

Annual Holiday Gift Barn Collection Drive Kick-Off 

Our annual holiday gift collection drive to help those less fortunate in our community kicks off November 12 and runs through November 27th. Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank's Holiday Gift Barn program serves 1,800 children in the Issaquah School District each year. Pickering Barn is turned into a huge toy store where parents can choose 3-4 gifts for each of their children, plus stocking stuffers. In cooperation with the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank, Briarwood PTA will be collecting brand new unwrapped gifts for children ages birth to Age 18 to be used in a "gift shop" for Food Bank clients. Collection boxes will be in the front entry of school and downstairs near the PTA bulletin board. Please see the Flyer for more details.
