February 8, 2019 Week 2
Mrs. Fortunato’s Message
Another blessed and invigorating week at ICS has zipped by, but not without incredible experiences! As we celebrate the love of Saint Valentine this coming week, we are inspired to grow in our faith and personal relationships in and out of school.
Our parent volunteers are busy preparing activities that will benefit our school community. The SCRIP Moms have spent endless hours processing and filling SCRIP orders. The 7th grade moms are working on creative fund raisers and decorations to support the 8th grade end of year dinner. Our Home School Association (HSA ) has fund raising activities planned, and they are also preparing for a March information session that will highlight their agenda for the 2019/20 school year. We encourage you to think about becoming an active member of HSA!
The school's biggest fundraiser is the Gala. Our Gala Committee is "on fire" as they work to complete the final touches for the March 2nd Gala, "A Night at the Races". I hope you will attend this awesome event. It looks like we will have two tables of teachers in attendance this year! Please rsvp and join the fun!
Our mission to serve has inspired a new outreach program (not yet named). We have identified a list of organizations in need of help from our students and parents. The first event is for our 8th graders at the Flemington Success Center. The Center hosts a teen program every last Friday evening of the month. Our students are invited to attend "Pizza and Movie Night". Our students will have the opportunity to socialize with other teens throughout Hunterdon County. We are also looking to assist The Flemington Food Pantry with an Easter initiative. There are many opportunities and more details will be shared in the future.
Our ICC Rosarians and senior parishioners will be invited to an ICS breakfast this month, followed by a school tour. If you are interested in baking or helping with a tour, we would love to have you join our Parent Ambassador Program. Please email me if you would like to participate.
Thank you for your continued support of our wonderful school!
