Dia de los Muertos Recognition

Dia de los Muertos was fabulous! Over 400 ISLA community members enjoyed this celebration!  Thank you for attending! A special thank you to the following people:

We would like to acknowledge ISLA parent, Amy Duffing, owner of 3 Peas Photography, who donated her professional talents and ran the photobooth from start to finish.  The pictures are fabulous!

Thank you Zielo Hernandez for setting up and displaying your family ofrenda.  It was a fantastic representation and beautiful tribute.  Thank you for sharing it with all of ISLA.

Thank you ISLA Alumni and Hopkins High School Students, for your help and eagerness to volunteer.  You perfectly modeled for our young kids that commitment to helping out in your community is valuable and that volunteerism can start at a young age. 

We'd also like to thank Apple Jacks Apple Orchard for donating bushels of juicy, healthy apples! 

- Last, but far from least, we thank all the Sign Up Genius volunteers and others - who simply jumped in off the record - to make this event grand!  The ISLA Community is directly strengthened and thriving because of these volunteers. What a fantastic privilege it is for ISLA, and our kids, to be the recipients of your dedication and generosity!

Restaurant Night Save the Date!

Mark your calendars for our first restaurant night fundraiser at Chipotle in Hopkins! Plan on dinner at Chipotle on December 13th between 5-9 pm while supporting the ISLA PTO. Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the date!

Volunteer Thank You

We would like to thank all of our volunteers who have been  helping support ISLA students and staff in the library, lunch room, picture day, hearing & vision, conference teacher potluck, fall classroom parties, and all the behind the scenes support that makes ISLA so special.  Your time and efforts are valuable and appreciated:
