Welcome to PCMS and the Issaquah School District! 

We’re happy you’re here! Our New Families page is designed to offer general information about PCMS and the ISD by providing links to shared resources and contacts, easing the challenging transition to a new school. PCMS PTSA is an active, volunteer-based organization supporting new families in many ways. Besides funding educationally focused programs, the PTSA plans events throughout the year encouraging new families to join as part of our PCMS community. Additionally, our Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Chair is happy to help guide the way. 
Simply, let us know how to help!
