ICA First Grade

Weekly Snapshot

Notes from the Teachers

Happy November!!

ICA did a great job raising money for Jump Rope for Heart!! Our School raised over $6,000!! WAY TO GO!!

First grade is excited to participate in the creation of a Little Free Library for ICA. As the project progresses we will send out more information. Here is the link if you would like to check it out sooner: https://littlefreelibrary.org

Thank you Caylee for bringing your dream to ICA and allowing us to be part of it.

Please pack an extra uniform in their backpack for emergencies. They are nice to have available in case of spills, accidents, or dirt. Please pack an extra bag for dirty clothes as well.

First grade is in need of zip lock bags (sandwich and gallon size) and blank note/ index cards. If you are able to send some in they will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Please remember that we are trying to keep sugary drinks out of the classroom. For drinks during the day and snack we would like kids to bring in water. Water is much easier to clean up if it spills. Also, it is much easier for students to have dry snacks. :)

Please make sure that your child is wearing tennis shoes or flats- boots are not allowed- and belts must be worn each day. Students should not be wearing brightly colored socks so please be sure to stick with white, black, navy or grey. Thank you.

We thank you for all of your help and support this year!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Mrs. Cook & Ms. Jones



There are still a few students missing headphones. Please try to have them in as soon as possible. The kids are using them during Technology class and for the NWEA tests. If you have difficulty getting headphones please let your child's teacher know. Thank you so much for you understanding.


Just a reminder that for birthdays, students can bring in goodie bags. We do not serve cake or cupcakes for these special days. Goodie bags will be passed out at the end of the day and parents can monitor the food selections and items.

**If your child has invitations to hand out, please have them give their teacher the invitations to put into the blue folders at the end of the day. Thank you.


All transactions at ICA need to be in the form of a check, money order or efunds. We cannot take cash payments. You should receive a receipt for all transactions.
