Families new to the Mercer Island School District this year are invited to a special welcome event from 6-8 p.m. on Oct. 11 in the commons of Islander Middle School, 7447 84th Ave. SE. A light dinner will be served. No RSVP is necessary and children are welcome.

At the event, families will be able to meet members of the Mercer Island School Board, Superintendent Donna Colosky and other key school district leaders. Also, many Island community organizations, including PTA, youth sports and youth activities will be in attendance to offer information about their services.

Several parents who are serving as new parent ambassadors, including some who also serve on the District’s Diversity Advisory Committee, will be there to help families learn about the MISD or direct them to the resources they may need.
