Grand Ridge is hosting a Kindergarten Parent Information Meeting on January 26 at 5:30pm. This is being held on Zoom. See the Grand Ridge website for details.
Please share with your friends who have an incoming Kindergarten student for the 2022-23 school year.
Our current levy will expire December 31, 2022.
The School Board approved to have the renewal levy on the ballot in April.
Ballots will be due April 26, 2022.
This levy must pass in order to continue programs for our 2022-2023 school year and beyond (this is a 4-year levy, so it will fund programs through 2026).
Click HERE for the slide deck from ISD that gives more detailed information on levies and what the 2022 Levy will cover.
The ISD Levy Development Committee is made up of representatives from every school, local business representatives, and community members are meeting from December 2021 to January 2022 to form a recommendation for a levy package for 2022 ballot measures. The committee will present its recommendation to Superintendent Ron Thiele, who will bring the final recommendation to the Issaquah School Board for approval at the Jan. 27, 2022 School Board Meeting. The Levy Development Committee will consider the proposed content, total cost and tax impact of three ballot measures: an Educational Programs and Operations Levy (formerly called the Maintenance and Operations Levy), a Capital (Technology and Critical Repairs) Levy, and a Transportation (Bus) Levy. Click HERE for information, agendas, notes and details. Any comments, questions about the levy package, please encourage your community to email Levy2022@issaquah.wednet.edu. All comments will be shared with the committee members for discussion.

Please take a moment to recognize the extraordinary teachers, staff, volunteers and advocates in our community by submitting a nomination.

Make a difference – become a mentor in the Issaquah School District!
If you are looking for an impactful and fulfilling volunteer experience, the Issaquah School District needs people who can support students by meeting with them, at school, during school hours, for 30-60 minutes each week. Mentors are needed at all grade levels, at all schools in the Issaquah School District. Mostly due to the pandemic, over 100 mentors have withdrawn at a time when the need is greater than ever.
Mentoring differs from tutoring in that mentoring focuses on fostering positive, supportive relationships which help students develop skills and attitudes (such as resilience, self-advocacy, self-confidence, etc.) to promote academic achievement and success in life.
Here is a youtube video that the district put together of current mentors talking about their mentoring experience.
You can learn more about the VOICE (Volunteers of Issaquah Changing Education) Mentor Program and submit an application from the Issaquah School District’s VOICE Mentor page. Because mentoring is in-person, proof of vaccination is required. Also, you must be cleared with a background check and attend a 2 hour training. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
