Happy Spring Break!
Thank you all so much for your great work on our 1st Honk & Wave last Thursday! It was so fun posting some great photos from parents, kids, community members and teachers around our district reminding our community how important the bond is and to please VOTE YES! Thank you Thank you Thank you so much for your support!
1. As you know, last week was a huge push to “Vote before the Break” – thank you again for your help getting that information out to your communities. We are really feeling positive that people listened and hopefully made an effort to get those ballots off the kitchen counter and into the mail before heading out of town.
2. Spring Break week has started and some of you may be out enjoying some well deserved R&R (woo-hoo!). If you happen to be in town or are planning a Facebook post, enews, or any communication to your school community this week- please remind everyone to Please Vote Yes by April 26th! Ballots can be mailed or dropped off at a Ballot Box (ther is one located at the Issaquah Police Station). We need a 60% YES VOTE to pass this bond, so Every vote counts! Every single vote matters!
3. We have heard that some people around our district are receiving an “amended” postcard from King County letting them know that their taxes aren’t due until May 2nd (because the regular due date of April 30th falling on the weekend). For some reason, unknown to us, King County decided to include a line which states the percentage of their property tax for school levies. Not sure why King County included this information now, since it wasn’t itemized on the original postcards sent in February. We will give you more information next week if we learn more.
4. And now, to end with some fun….please take a photo from wherever you may be this week with your Vote Yes wristband, window cling, or just write Vote Yes! on a sheet of paper, napkin, etc. and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Shelly will post it on the VIS facebook page…and/or post it on your own page, or your PTA’s page. This is a fun way to remind our friends and community that April 26th
is coming soon and to please Vote YES!
You have all done such a great job helping promote the bond and we so appreciate your help get this bond passed for our community.
Have a great Spring Break and we will send you an update next Monday 4/18 with information for your school communities!
Thank you again so much and have a great week!
