The ISB Giving Day for Play held on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, was a smashing success with more than 100 donors joining forces to raise funds for our new playground. We unlocked the $10,000 matching gift challenge for a grand total of $33,144 (and counting!).

Thank you to all ISB parents, teachers, staff, and students who participated. Together, we did it!
