Island Park Elementary is gearing up for our annual Hand-in-Hand (HIH) Auction and we need YOUR HELP! We are thrilled to announce that the annual Island Park HIH Auction will return to Mercer Island and be held at the Mercer Island Community & Events Center on Friday, March 28th, 2014!
The annual auction is the largest fundraiser for our HIH program and critical to fund the paraprofessionals for the 2014/2015 school year. Our HIH program is unique to Island Park and it provides one professional staff person at each grade level, effectively lowering the class size and enabling teachers and staff to provide a more personalized learning opportunities to our kids. The paraprofessionals also augment IP staff pre/post school helping kids get to/from buses safely and provide “recess camp” for those kids that are apprehensive to participate in traditional playground activities.
