6th Grade Challenger Field Trip Parent Information Meeting

We have a fantastic educational experience planned for our students in January. We are planning to take our students to Waco with ECHO Education to “Texas: It’s a Go, Mission Control.” This is a TEKS based, STEM focused program where students will be visiting The Challenger Learning Center at Texas State Technical College. I have provided some links below that showcase this awesome opportunity.


We are asking that parents please come to an informational meeting on Wednesday Sept 26th at 6:00 pm, in the Cafeteria, to get the details and understand how this experience is one of a kind. We will also go over details of a payment plan since the trip is $65 per student, which includes a charter bus, all activities, lunch, t-shirt, water bottle, and end of program souvenir.

This program is crafted to encourage students to collaborate, experiment, and learn with simulated lessons.


Once again, please join us Wednesday Sept 26th at 6:00 pm in the Cafeteria to learn more!


Thank you,

6th Grade Science Teachers

No Messages Will be Delivered After 3:00 PM

We will not be able to deliver any messages you have for your child after 3:00 pm. If you are needing to get a message to your child before the end of the day, you will need to call in by 3:00 pm.


We understand that emergency situations can come up, and those will be handled accordingly.

Report Cards in Skyward

  • In an effort to "Go Green", we will not print Report Cards each grading period. Grades are always current and live in Skyward, and we will send notifications of when the Report Card Grades are final each grading period.
  • Report Card Grades for the 1st grading period will be posted to Skyward on Thursday, October 4.
  • Your child will record his/her report card grades at the end of each grading period in his/her planner. Parents will sign the Planner verifying they acknowledged their child's report card grades.
  • At any time, you can always contact your child's teacher(s) if you have questions or concerns about your child's grades.

Icenhower staff begins their duty day at 8:00 AM. Students who are dropped off before 8:00 AM will not be supervised.

Icenhower - The Greatest Show!

This is ME!

Based on the the Song, This is Me, from the Greatest Showman, these words define why we chose the theme, This is Me! If you have not seen the song with the lyrics, click on the link below to watch it!


https://youtu.be/CjxugyZCfuw


"But I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us (…)
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me!"
