IES Christmas Toy Drive in Honor of Captain Stan Elrod
Please remember our IES Toy Drive, which is going on now through December 9th. Our Toy Drive this year is done in honor of Department of Natural Resources Captain Stan Elrod, who died tragically earlier this school year. He was the husband of Mrs. Julie Elrod, one of our parapros here at IES, and father of two of our former Gators. His death was a tremendous loss to our community. For this reason, we are honoring Captain Elrod and his family with this year’s Toy Drive. Thank you so much for supporting our school and community!
Face Mask Reminder...
Note - if your child needs new face masks or neck gaiters, our PTO will be selling them each time our Swamp Shack is open.
Water Bottle Reminder...
