Our school benefits from having a very active parent community through the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). This parent group works closely with ISE faculty and staff to support the school and enhance the experience of the children who attend our school as well as their families.
The PTA provides support in many ways; technology and classroom supplies, teachers helper funds, author visits, books for the Read-a-Thon, and STEAM night. The PTA recently purchased a Gaga Pit for the school playground area and a kiln for our amazing art program as well as new furniture for our school library! The PTA recognizes the great work of our faculty and staff by sponsoring Apple Week (teacher appreciation week) each year. We are excited to have the PTA sponsor a few super fun community building events each year: the annual Pancake Breakfast and Craft Bazaar, the annual Spaghetti Dinner (run by the Dad’s of ISE), and Falcon Fest (our end of school festival). We are always looking for parent support so please reach out if you are interested in helping!
The PTA is able to do all of the amazing work they do by fundraising. Recent fundraisers have been the Pepperoni Roll Sale, various bake sales, the Fall Mumkins Sale and Spring Plant sale, monthly Restaurant Nights, and the Clintonville 5K. You can also support our school when you shop at Kroger (code LL941), and Amazon Smile. Tell your friends, parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles to register their rewards cards too! Every little bit helps!
2020/21 was a challenging year and we understand that 2021/22 will also have its own set of challenges - but we are here to help and support our families and staff! Volunteering opportunities and school events are slowly being brought back as health guidelines will allow it, and we are so excited!!
