Message From

Issaquah Middle School Families,

We are at the end of Trimester 2.  Please do not forget that Friday, March 17th is a Half Day where students will be released at 10:55am with 22 minute classes.  There is  No School Lunch that day because students will be returning home before lunch time. 

Students who would like to purchase breakfast may do so for $2.50, and breakfast will be provided free of charge for those students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. If you would like your student to purchase breakfast, or are interested in applying for free or reduced price meals, please visit our Food Services website. Students interested in purchasing breakfast should have money deposited in their food services meal account. Student can bring a check to school to deposit money or parents can deposit money online at

Students who have exhibited good behaviors will take part in the end of trimester 2 party on March 31st at the end of the school day.  There will be a deejay, gaming trucks, and some rated G movies for students to watch as a reward for “Being Kind and Taking Care of One Another” for Trimester 2. 

Eighth Grade families will be receiving some more information very soon about 8th grade promotion being held on June 13th during the School Day.   Eighth grade students will also take part in a fun field trip opportunity at the Family Fun Center the following day, June 14th.   Teachers and administrators will be looking at the following behavior expectations and how that will affect your student’s ability to attend this awesome field trip event.  The following behaviors will make a student ineligible to attend: 

  • Continually tardy to class
  • Missing Major assessments
  • Numerous Office Discipline referrals

Is it too late for me to be eligible to attend?  No, It’s not! We will be looking at data from the 3rd Trimester where students have the opportunity to turn it all around and be eligible to go! 


March Most Valuable Panther (MVP) word of the month is Respect.  PTSA will partner with the school to provide an award and ice cream to all those students nominated by staff showing Respect!
