Issaquah Schools Foundation

Nourish Every Mind Student Showcase is coming up soon!

Did you know the Vox Audiobooks in our Discovery Library were funded by a teacher grant from the Issaquah Schools Foundation? Because of the generous teacher grants they provide, our Discovery students have access to high quality audiobooks in a variety of languages and representing the diverse cultures of our school community! Discovery families and caregivers are always welcome to visit Mrs. Gage in the library and see these fabulous books on display!

With that, the Issaquah Schools Foundation and Principal Keegan invite you to join them at the Nourish Every Mind Student Showcase on Thursday, 3/28/24 starting at 11am at the Issaquah Community Center. Registration will open soon so check the Issaquah Schools Foundation website for up to date information.

Our Discovery PTSA appreciates all the Issaquah Schools Foundation does for our students at Discovery and across the District! Thank you!


Reflections Finalists

Discovery PTSA is a proud supporter of Reflections - a nationwide arts recognition program for students. 

The latest news!

We have two Discovery students whose Reflections submissions are advancing to the Washington state level!
 
Devaansh A. in Ms. Peterson's kindergarten class and Dhruva U. in Ms. Somnis' 4th grade class both qualified with entries in the literature category. 
 
Everyone is welcomed to attend the Reflections Receptions on Thursday, 1/25/24 from 6:30-8:00pm at Issaquah High School for an art walk gallery of this year's school and district finalists!
 
 
We are proud of all our Discovery students who submitted art and literature for Reflections this year.

Please congratulate these students who qualified for the district level.

Thank you to all students who submitted art to this year's program! We will have a chance to showcase the art submissions later this year for our community to see.

We express our gratitude and appreciation to Sandhya Deepak for her time, dedication and organization as our Reflections volunteer this year. Without her, Discovery would not have been able to participate in this great art program.
