Late Start

Thursday, February 27th is ISLA's next late start. School and buses will run 2 hours late.


We are about to reach a critical milestone in the Fiesta de laPrimavera planning!  This is our last donation and sponsorship ask before we move into our final preparations for the big event!  If you’ve thought about donating but just haven’t found the time or had the inspiration – NOW IS THE TIME AND BELOW IS THE INSPIRATION!

Donate a Great Gathering event

Great Gatherings are one of the most popular auction items at Fiesta because our ISLA community always thinks of the most fun and creative events. These group gatherings can be open to all grade levels or specific grades and can include kids, families or adults only.  

How can I submit a Great Gathering? Complete this short Parent Donation Request Form

Coordinate a Basket donation

We’ve heard you loud and clear – you want more baskets as auction items!   We’ve come up with the ideas and now we just need individuals or groups to help us make that happen.  How can I sign up to coordinate a basket? Sign up here.

Questions? Contact Betsey Palmgren at Betseypalmgren@gmail.com or MerrieSjogren at Merriesjogren@gmail.com.

Ticket prices will increase in ONE WEEK!  

This weekend we will start individually reaching out to our families to ensure you have the opportunity to get the special ticket price.
