READ-A-THON will be one of the PTA’s biggest fundraisers of the year; money raised is for our general budget, which funds our teacher grants, events and programs. One of the best advantages of the READ-A-THON, is that it allows all money collected to stay at Clark! It also provides a better tax deduction incentive for donors.

READ-A-THON packets will be sent home on 10/6. Packets contain everything your student needs to participate, including:

  1. Important DATES for turning in reading minutes and fundraising deadlines
  2. FUNDRAISING & Prize information
  3. PLEDGE FORM
  4. READING incentives & minutes log

ISD Central Administration Building, 5150 220th Ave. S.E., Issaquah, WA 98029

Hello, ISD Community! Today I am excited to share my progress on the first half of my First 100 Days. So far, my work has been centered on listening and learning.

Here's a video I filmed to share a bit about how I've been inspired by our students and staff as I visited our schools and service sites

The next 50 days of the plan are focused on engaging with you. As a part of this phase, I’d like to invite all students, families, community members and staff to a Community Forum from 5-6:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 at the Administration Building, 5150 220th Ave. S.E., Issaquah. I’ll share more about the format and topics soon. 

This event will be hosted in-person only. We will have interpreters available.

Principal Christy Otley

Meet Principal Christy Otley!

Hi, Shark families! My favorite part of being a principal is the learning and growing that happens among students and staff. A few fun facts about me: One of my favorite children’s books is “Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse.” I hope to someday climb Mount Kilimanjaro, and I once filmed a commercial in the Czech Republic!
