A Note From Your Principal

Dear IES Families,

Our 2021 IES Field Day was a major success! I hope you enjoy just a few of the moments we captured in pictures below. Our FIVE Virtual Field Day will be in action for our upcoming week and we can't wait! I cannot thank you enough for the personal support and love we received this week for Teacher/Staff Appreciation. Our families always amaze me. IES is a very special place because of our staff, families, and most importantly our students. A BIG THANK YOU from my heart to yours!

FIVE Virtual Weekly Update:

Hello IES FIVE family,

I hope this message finds all of you doing well and having a great start to May. This week, our very own coach John Goodale, has provided an opportunity for our FIVE students to have a FIVE Field Day/ Week. He has created two documents that allow our FIVE students to get moving through games, activities, and challenges throughout this upcoming week. Your FIVE teacher will be releasing these documents to your student this week, if they haven't already. To students who have non-IES teachers in FIVE, we will be sending out information from the school directly to your student so that they do not miss out on this opportunity. The events are set up to be accessible to the home environment and should require few materials. We would love to see the fun and enjoyment that these opportunities bring to your FIVE student. If possible, please send your FIVE teacher or myself pictures of your student joining in on the fun. Good luck this week as we look forward to another great week in FIVE.
