#HeartoftheHive January 30-February 3

A Note From Your Principal

Dear IES Families,

Our 100th day in the heart of the hive was a success! This week, student council is selling Valentine pencil-grams to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. Send a pencil with a Valentine message to friends, siblings and/or teachers for $1.00 each. Order forms went home this past Thursday in the student's communication folders and teachers have extra forms in their classrooms. All order forms and money are due by Wednesday, February 8th and pencil-grams will be delivered on Tuesday, February 14th. Thank you for your support!

The Sweetheart Dance is Back!

The PTA invites all students to enjoy an evening of fun with a special parent/adult of their choosing for our Sweetheart Dance on February 10th. Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance. Visit to buy online. Family tickets are for IES students only as space is limited.

Date: Friday, February 10

Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Location: Cafeteria

Parking: There will be plenty of parking in the back of the school off Fork Ave.

Dress: If your student wants to wear a Cinderella dress, a Batman cape or your Sunday best, it is all welcomed! Children and adults attending the Sweetheart Dance must follow the school dress code.

Music: Our DJ will have something for everyone! The cafeteria does get loud and we will be using blacklights.

Photo Booth: Bring your cell phone to capture your memories.

Food: Light snacks will be served

Tickets: When a Family ticket is purchased for multiple kids and parents as a family, each student has their own ticket with the parents listed as "parent OR parents". Each student can enter the dance with either parent. Due to capacity limits, siblings who are not IES students are not allowed to attend.
