We take pride in knowing we have strong administrative leaders, committed teachers, staff and parents who are dedicated to supporting our school. Below are some of the Island Lake Elementary programs that benefit from PTA funds and volunteers.

Classroom Enrichment

Last year, over $17,000 went to classroom supplies and educational materials. The PTA provides these funds to enrich students’ classroom experiences not covered by school or district budgets. 

International Night

International Night is a very popular annual event dedicated to the diverse community that makes up Island Lake Elementary. Families can participate by offering displays of cultural art, food, music and more.

Book Fair

PTA hosts book a fall and spring book fair, with proceeds benefitting the Island Lake library. A great selection of kid-approved books at family-approved prices. You can support this program by visiting the book fair or volunteering.

Birthday Board

We depend on volunteers to decorate the birthday board in the school hallway to celebrate each student's special day. We provide the funds; you provide the creativity.

Gardening Team

We depend on volunteers to care for our community garden and to enhance the grounds surrounding the school. A great way to volunteer as a family.

Science Fair

Students employ the scientific method to test a hypothesis, then display and present their findings at the science fair. 


Fun for the whole family! Carnival games, food trucks, bouncy house, prizes and silent auction.

Staff Appreciation

We recognize and celebrate how our teachers and staff play such a pivotal role in our children’s lives. Inspiring a love of learning and making a difference in their well-being and long-term success.


The PTA is responsible for the design, production and sale of the school yearbook. We need your help to gather photos to include in each grade level collage.


Each year, Island Lake PTA sponsors the student directory. We believe that our directory serves as a useful tool for families to connect and build community.

Library Funding

PTA provides funds directly to the school library to expand the collection. This ensures that our students have access to a diverse and relevant selection of books and media. 

Special Events

The PTA plans and coordinates events such as Family Socials, Bingo Night, Run with the Wolves, Fifth Grade Picnic and more!
