Tienes Una Cita Raises Over $28K

On Friday, November 30, over 100 ICS families, staff, and invited guests made it a date for ICS.

Tienes Una Cita/Make it a Date is the ICS fall fundraiser and launch party for the ICS Calendar/Calendario, which features artwork created by twelve ICS students each year. This year’s event also commemorated Beth Jacquot, a founder of ICS and the calendar event who died in a car accident last spring.

Tienes Una Cita/Make it a Date raised over $28,000 for ICS through ticket sales, sponsorship and donations, and the first ICS calendar art auction. Auctioned off were prints of the calendar artwork, which raised $2,500 of the total proceeds.

Thanks to everyone who came together to celebrate and support our school.

Have your 2008 ICS Calendar? Calendars are on sale for $10 through January. Order forms came home in every student’s folder. If you don’t have one, send an e-mail to Matt Drexler.

All proceeds from Tienes Una Cita/Make it a Date and calendar sales go directly to the school’s operating budget, which covers facilities costs, teacher salaries and professional development, field trips, and much more.
