Lake Sammamish State Park Boat Launch/East Lake Sammamish Trail
Help us raise a monstrous amount of support for local students by joining us Saturday, October 30th, for the Issaquah Schools Foundation Monster Mash 5K! 

Hosted at Lake Sammamish State Park Boat Launch, this professionally chip-timed 5K route along East Lake Sammamish Trail is paved, fast, and flat. Log a new race PR, beat the weekend sugar rush, or simply embrace the holiday spirit and reconnect friends at this outdoor fundraising event. 

Costumes and festive holiday wear are strongly encouraged, and those who choose to dress to impress will be entered into a raffle for gift cards to local restaurants and stores!

Phased start-times, masking requirements, and a virtual race option aim to create a space and place for all to participate. 100% of all proceeds go to support local students via the Issaquah Schools.
Welcome A-Board!
Please join us in welcoming these Issaquah School District parents to our Board of Trustees. We are thrilled to have their parent perspective, professional experience, and leadership to help guide the Foundation. Thank you for your passion, dedication, and commitment to supporting our students!
Support Your Local Safeway and Help Provide Breakfast Options to Local Students
Through the month of September, 100% of donations made at the registers of Safeway at Issaquah Highlands, Issaquah Gilman, and Sammamish Plateau will go toward providing breakfast options to kids during the school day. 

Since eating breakfast helps improve alertness, concentration, mental performance, and mood, you can make a direct impact on how a student starts the day! We are honored to be named the charity partner Nourish Neighbors grant recipient for this month and appreciate your support at our local Safeway stores!
The 2021-2022 Family Resource Guide is Here!
Our Cultural Bridges program was created to help all families navigate the Issaquah School District and to help them stay informed with events and publications offered in seven languages.

This Family Guide is a compilation of information from the Issaquah School District for families with kids in kindergarten, elementary, middle, and high school. We also publish a magazine; you can look for a print copy at the office of any of the 26 schools in our district or download it here.
