ICIS February Newsletter
Volume (1) Issue (7)
I hope you all have had a great January. We are excited and looking forward to crawling towards Spring. It will be here before we know it! We did have a Snow Day in January, so we will be AT school for Presidents Day (2-19-24). We will be having IN PERSON school on Monday, Feb 19th. Just a reminder that for any future school cancelations, we will have an e-learning day the day of the cancelation. We look forward to a Harlem Wizards School Convocation on Feb 14th to hype up the students for the game that evening. The Wizards game (verses IC staff) will be Feb 14th at 7pm at ICHS. It is normally a very fun night!
Science Club- Congratulations to our Science Club- they came in 5th in the state! We are so proud of them and their hard work this year! Thank you to Mrs. Peters, Mrs. Appleton, and Mrs. Leuck for leading this amazing group of students!
IREAD 3- Third grade is heavily preparing for IREAD! This is a reading assessment developed in accordance with state legislation, which measures foundational reading skills. Our third graders will take the practice test on Monday, March 4th. They will complete the IREAD3 assessment Tuesday, March 5th and Thursday, March 7th. Please make sure they get a good nights sleep and come to school with a charged chromebook and working headphones. The students have been working hard this year! I know they will all do their best.
Fifth Graders- Attention all 5th graders! Please send in a photo of your child during their younger years (before KG) to Melissa Pharr. She will be making a slideshow for the end of the year awards program. You can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or send the picture in with your child so we can scan and return it. Thank you for your help in this!
Indian Creek Educational Foundation (ICEF)
The ICEF is seeking volunteers to join their committee. They are a small group of parents/community members that share the same vision of supporting Indian Creek Schools/Teachers/Students/Staff. They host events (Bingo, Holiday Bizarre, Music at the Creek) to raise money to give back to the school in the form of grants. If you are interested, please join at one of their monthly meetings.
Here are the meeting dates for 2024 (Sundays at 7 pm at the ICLC):
Yearbook Orders - All yearbook orders are due on Feb 29th. The order form is below.
A student who consistently models our school-wide expectations for respect, responsibility, and safety.
A student who always works to achieve their personal best, behaviorally or academically.
All recipients were surprised with the announcements of their awards at the school wide convocation, recognized in front of their peers, and were also given a certificate with a blurb written by their nominating teacher.
Congratulations to all quarter 2 winners!
