Field Day!

Field Day is on Friday, May 26th and it will take place at ISLA. The alternate day in case of bad weather will be Friday, June 2nd. Field Day is a non uniform day for students and I encourage them to wear sport clothes and comfortable tennis shoes. We will have two sessions for Field Day:

  • Morning session from 10:00 - 12:00 for PreK - Second grade.
  • Afternoon session from 1:00 - 3:15 for Third - Sixth grade.

Please make sure your kid brings a water bottle and sunscreen. Everyone is invited to come and watch!

Come lend a hand and spend the day with your kids as they enjoy Field Day!  Sr. Diaz needs help with the food/drink station. Please sign up through the following link:

School Board Election - May 12 - 15

ISLA's annual board of directors election will be held via an online voting platform, Election Buddy, in mid-May, with results announced at the May 16 board meeting.  All ISLA staff members and parents and guardians of ISLA students are eligible to vote for school board members.

Eligible voters should receive a unique ballot link by email on Friday, May 12 and will be permitted to cast their vote using that link anytime thereafter until 5:00pm on Monday, May 15.  If you do NOT currently have an email address on file with the school, please contact Emily Smith at esmith@isla.school to provide a current email address to receive your online ballot.  If you do not have access to email or a device for online voting, you will be able to vote in person at the school office during school hours on Friday May 12 and Monday May 15.

Biographies of the board candidates and a sample ballot can be found on the ISLA website: https://www.isla.school/board/board-candidates.

End of School Celebration

June is almost here, and what better way to celebrate the end of a great year than to gather together as a community. Please join us on Sunday, June 4th from 3-6pm at ISLA school for time to socialize and celebrate our great community, teachers, and staff - and have a little fun! The Fundraising Committee has reserved a bounce house and dunk tank and are looking for any volunteers who might be willing to coordinate music or face paint? Please reach out to ISLA parent and Fundraising Committee member, Alisa Linne at alisalinne@gmail.com if you are interested in helping.

Spread the Word

If you are interested in helping spread the ISLA word in local communities, the Marketing and Communications Committee wants to hear from you. The committee is exploring ideas for participation in area parades, community festivals, and other events. The committee isn't looking for a large commitment of time, but maybe a couple of days during the year depending on interest. Send an email to marketing@isla.school if interested in learning more.

ISLA Library

The ISLA library will be closing for the year on Friday, May 12th. Please return all books that your child has taken out of the library by then so that they can all be checked back into the library.
