September Newsletter


By this time my blood type is pumpkin spice...☕️

Fall has arrived and the morning air finally feels cool and crisp! Our athletic teams are in full force and our academics are as well. Your student has completed their first round of NWEA. They should be able to share their beginning of the year data with you. Please reach out to their Language Arts or Math teacher if they are unsure.

Happy fall! 🌰 🍂

Pet Policy

Please be aware that dogs are not allowed on school grounds, playgrounds, or sports fields at any time throughout the calendar year except for service animals, per school policy, Indiana and Federal law.

This policy is for our students and staff members' health and safety.

After school hours and athletic events and practices, when students are absent, dog owners may walk their pets on a leash along the school property borders, such as the walking trail and on sidewalks/school roads. Please clean up and properly dispose of pet waste.

Math with Mr. Appleton

Students are doing a great job of learning new concepts and applying them to work on subsequent days. The work ethic of my classes is above that of a typical middle school. This impresses me so much that starting after Labor Day students can listen to music on Fridays IF they have no missing assignments and all the week’s IXL work is done. Hard work now has huge dividends when we get to the second semester.

This awesome work ethic is an extremely desirable trait which employers are begging to have in their workplace. It would help students now and in the future if parents at home would reinforce great work habits.

Praise! Praise! Praise! Every good working moment should not go unnoticed. It is with great pleasure that I get to praise students who are on task every day. Labor Day is coming up. Take the time to tell your children and grandchildren that one of the things that makes America great is the hard work done by all those in the past generations. Work is your friend!

Math with Mrs. Ramey

Students have been working hard at learning and review how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals! We had a lot of amazing scores on our first quiz. Those who did not reach mastery (at least an 80%) will be required to make corrections. I do this to help students learn from their mistakes. That is the best way to grow in their abilities! After finishing up decimals, we will move onto fractions! I appreciate all the hard work that is coming from the students! If you ever have any questions, please reach out.

Thank you to everyone who was able to donate something off of my Amazon wishlist! I could still use a couple of items! Here is the link for my list! (You should be able to copy and paste it into your browser.) I think the main items are Kleenex, page protectors, and colored copy paper!

Middle School Athletic Passes

Middle School athletic passes are currently for sale online.

Passes are $25 for middle school students only and only for middle school sporting events.

Kona Ice is coming to ICMS

As a treat to our students, we will have Kona Ice here on Sept 12th. This is an optional opportunity - students don't need to go out and get Kona Ice, but if you want your student to have a special surprise on this day they certainly may. All proceeds will benefit our Teacher Appreciation Fund. Please see the flier below and watch for more information soon.

Why Prepay?

  • With prepay we do not need to deal with any money on the day of the event
  • With prepay, we know before Kona gets here how many Konas were purchased and so we know how many kids we might be short and can make whatever arrangements we would like
  • With prepay parents can "Pay It Forward." So it allows students who may not have gotten one to get one.
  • With prepay, the line at the truck moves so much faster

Students will have the option to bring cash and purchase the day of as well.
