GREETINGS IVY FAMILY!


Can you believe it is Winter Break already? We hope you will enjoy the next three days with friends and family! This is a great time to read, relax, renew, and do something new! We look forward to seeing our scholars return on Thursday, February 20th at 7:30 a.m.


Last week, we celebrated I Love Ivy Week! We love our proud parents, sensational scholars, and terrific teachers! We also hosted "Look Who's Going to Kindergarten Meet and Greet" for interested Pre-Kindergarten students and parents. All of the families had a GRAND time learning about Ivy, while enjoying delicious hot dogs and all the fixings! Thank you to Ms. Richardson and Ms. N. Taylor for organizing such an awesome event!


We are VERY excited about the lottery period opening and welcoming new family members to Ivy. If you know of anyone looking to enroll their daughter(s) in a structured, supportive, all girls charter school, please encourage them to apply to Ivy Prep: The Right Choice for Girls! The lottery opened on February 4th and closed on March 6th. Visit our school's website for more details. www.ivyprepacademy.org


Parents, this is a reminder that our instructional day begins at 8:00 a.m.! Remember each day, minute, hour, and second are critical! Help us meet our attendance goals for the school year. Thank you for ensuring scholars are present, punctual, and prepared daily!
