The PTO collects and organizes new or gently used uniforms that are donated by ISLA families who no longer need them. They will be set out at a variety of events throughout the year. However, if you find your child has gone through a growth spurt and you need access to them sooner Emily is able to give parents access to where the uniforms are stored. To donate items, please bag them and drop off at the school office. Please feel free to take any items your kids could use. You do NOT have to donate anything in order to take.
We’re always looking for future LA Host Families. Please contact Kim Gelperin at firstname.lastname@example.org or Meggin Gregory at email@example.com for more information.
