ICS “Evening with Specialists” Nights

ICS Field Days

Check the ICS calendar early and often!

This is the time of year where events start to pile up on events and things come at us all very quickly. It’s a good idea to subscribe to the ICS google calendar (use the little +GoogleCalendar icon in bottom right corner of calendar) if you haven’t before, or to regularly visit it online to check for new or changed info.

Seeking candidates for Parent Board Representative

Complete info & instructions can be found here. All candidate submissions must be received by May 2. (Deadline extended from original email announcement!)

Seeking volunteers for the Silent Auction

Sign up to volunteer now! All volunteers will receive dress-down passes for their students. And all kitchen/food prep volunteers who contribute at least 1.5 hours will receive a FREE auction ticket!

Seeking…EVERYONE to take the District parent survey!

Take the survey now! It only takes a few minutes, and your feedback is an important factor in our annual School Progress Report. Families should take it one time for each child at ICS. (If you have 3 children at ICS, for instance, you’ll need to take it 3 times in order to represent each child’s unique experience.) Email me now and I’ll send you your child’s District ID#. (I’ll also be sending an email to all with this number included for you later today or tomorrow.)

Community Resources

Coach Veronica’s Playworks Soccer team has a jamboree/tournament this weekend and they would love some support!

If you’re in the area, stop by to cheer them on!
