A Note From Your Principal

Dear IES Families,

As reminder, this week we will celebrate IES' Annual Book Character Day. This is an optional event and a day that our bees love. You can review the specific details below. Please remember that scary costumes, costume masks, and distracting props (examples: swords, fairy wands, light sabers etc.) are NOT allowed. It is helpful if students bring the book with them to school that day or a copy/drawing of the front cover for other students to connect to. However, if you do not have access to this, no worries! Our staff will be participating as well! It is a day to promote the love of reading. Do not worry about it being fancy but rather just fun for our children! The official day for parent/teacher conferences is this Friday. Many classrooms have scheduled these throughout the last few weeks. However, 10/29 is the "official" day and a student holiday. November 1st is a teacher/student holiday and all schools and offices will closed.

IES 2021-2022 Book Character Day: Coming October 28th

It is time to celebrate our love of reading and our favorite book characters!

Who: ALL IES students and staff

What: Annual Book Character Day at IES

When: Thursday, October 28th

Where: All IES Classrooms

Why:To celebrate our love of life long reading and honor our favorite book characters

Important Details:

  • All students can participate 4K-5th

  • Students and staff dress up as a favorite character from a favorite book! Have fun and be creative. Outfits/costumes do not need to be fancy, elaborate, or costly. This is meant to be fun for the kids and families. Kids love it and it’s a great way to promote literacy.

  • It does need to be a true book character and not just a cartoon or movie character, hero, etc.

  • No props (distracting for instruction), no “character” face masks, or scary costumes.

  • This is optional and so much fun!

We hope to see our students enjoy this special, fun day!
