Community Update for September 4

Dear ISA Families,


September is here, and we hope this week’s message finds you all safe and well! While we have completed the first four weeks of school, Uvalde CISD begins school on Tuesday. The NEISD encourages students and staff to show support for the Uvalde Community by wearing maroon on Tuesday.


ISA 9th, 10th, and 11th grade families interested in ordering school photos after Lifetouch visited last week can use the school code EVTR3XMJX to place an order. This photo will also provide a school ID card for all ISA students who had a picture made. ISA 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students who missed photo day will have a make-up day on Friday, October 21, 2022.


ISA Families have a few more days to provide information for an NEISD student technology interest survey. Survey information in English and Spanish is linked, and this survey will remain open until 4:30 p.m. on September 6, 2022.


On Tuesday, September 6, 2022, the MUNSA XXVII Secretariat will host the first NGO fundraiser of the year benefiting this year’s designated NGO the YWCA. Join the secretariat at Chipotle (438 NW Loop 410, Ste. 101) from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Proceeds from the event will help provide legal and medical services to families in the San Antonio Community. Online orders for pick-up are eligible for this fundraising event, and MUNSA staff will be onsite to celebrate the event. Check THIS flier for more details!


The next ISA Amigos Board meeting will be held this Thursday, September 8, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. in the ISA in the Flex Space (S-103). ISA families still have an opportunity to donate to the Amigos’ Annual Appeal. Families can support the mission of the ISA Amigos with a contribution at the ISA Amigos Square Site or at this URL: More information about the annual appeal can be found HERE


In preparation for the October 12, on-campus PSAT and SAT administrations, ISA will be offering in-person tutoring opportunities beginning September 12 for the Reading section and September 14 for the Math section! ISA students are invited to join ISA Instructional Deans, Kelley Young and Catherine Polk, for these in-person preparation opportunities. Students can also join our Google Classroom using the join code: uy7apv2.


The LEE Campus PTSA invites the LEE/ISA/NESA/STEM community to participate in its annual PTSA Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, September 20, 2022. This annual celebration provides families with an opportunity to join the LEE Campus PTSA and follow your student’s schedule to meet the teachers. Families will follow THIS bell schedule during the evening after the night kicks off with a PTSA General Meeting in the PAC.


Finally, as we celebrate Labor Day with friends and family this weekend, we honor the many different ways that individuals contribute to our lives and our communities through the work and services they provide. Thank you especially to our ISA faculty and staff for your contributions to this unique learning community!


Tomorrow, Monday, September 5, is a student and staff holiday and offices are closed. We look forward to seeing students back in the ISA hallways on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.


Have a wonderful week!




Steve Magadance and the ISA Faculty
