Principal's Message

Dear IC STEM Families,

Our students are thriving as we continue to increase enrollment on campus. Hopefully all our students will return soon for our final weeks of this school year. Thank you for your continued support and vigilance in following the safety protocols.


On Saturday, our parish will celebrate Fr. Lepcha's 25th Anniversary as a priest. Our students will be honoring him in a school wide celebration at 11:00am on Friday, May 7. Donations are being collected for a gift and parish reception. For every $20 donation, you will earn one service hour. Please send a check or cash by this Friday.


Our school landscape needs attention. We would like to create a group of gardening volunteers who will maintain our plants in various areas of the schoolyard. Please contact us at principal@icschool.org if you have a green thumb and are interested. Earn service hours and help beautify our campus.


We also need help marketing our school. Please let us know if you are available to deliver our school flyer to the local preschools, especially the schools your child attended. Our next Prospective Parent Night will be May 20th at 6:30pm, so if you can help let us know.


As we wind down this school year, we have many important dates ahead of us. Please refer to the calendar to stay updated. We look forward to our Coffee with Principals this Friday.

IC STEM Summer School June 21 - July 16

Summer school hours will be from 8:30 - 11:30am in-person and we are considering after school hours. The results from this survey will help us make that decision. Please respond by May 5th.
