Each year the teachers and staff put together a list of items the school needs or wants that are above and beyond the budgeted items. Contributions toward those items are collected throughout the year from both churches and school families and/or school supporters. These funds provide invaluable assistance to the faculty who are able to enrich the learning environment and curriculum for our students.

Each year, the ISJ Board organizes the annual Walk-A-Thon. Local businesses, board members, and congregants sponsor the event. Students gather pledges and walk, and sometimes run, laps. All monies raised go to the school's general fund. Students who raise the most money, win prizes, such as iPads, Kindle Fires, Chrome Books, and other electronic devices. The class that raises the most money goes on a field trip to a local family fun center. The board's fundraising goal is $10,000. Pledge a student or donate directly to the school by clicking here.
