MISD Collects 1200 Pounds of Plastic Film In One Week
Mercer Island, WA, June 15, 2023 – The Mercer Island School District community deserves a huge shout out for the amazing effort in collecting plastic film for Earth month.
We collected over 1200 pounds of plastic film in one week at our schools. This was 765 pounds more than last year.
This event raised awareness around climate change and educated our students and families on what their part looks like to have an impact in a positive way.
We appreciate the help from Ridwell for helping us keep this material out of the landfill.
Ridwell donated $25 to each school that signed up for Ridwell service during this event.
Here is the fundraiser breakdown by school.
MIHS - 1 - $25
IMS - 1 - $25
Island Park - 2 - $50
Lakeridge - 4 - $100

West Mercer - 1 - $25
The Mercer Island School District New Family Welcome event is scheduled for Thursday, October 5, from 6pm-7:30pm in the Commons at Islander Middle School. Islander Middle School is located at 7447 84th Ave. SE.
Our schools, students, and staff started the year strong and confirm we are poised for an exceptional year. Though my last communication just came out a couple of weeks ago, I committed to providing mid-September updates, highlights, and recognitions. I would never pass on the opportunity to brag about our school district!
The Mercer Island School District will be hosting three Community Engagement Sessions in October about the District’s Long Range Facilities Plan (LRFP).
Wonder, worry, accomplishment, apprehension…joy. I flew home on Sunday night after dropping my oldest child off at college. I had many emotions to keep me occupied. Those of you who have already watched children move out, you know the feelings all too well.
