NICSTO Contributions:  Our school has not maxed out on NICSTO contributions for 2016.  So, if anyone wants to make a year-end contribution to this before year-end, they can still designate it for Ireton Christian School.





Ms. Vos will be coming earlier next semester, therefore we will be rearranging the lesson times.  Hopefully be able to fit everyone in during school time.



Upcoming order dates are:  January 9, January 30, February 21 (Tuesday), March 13, April 3 (last order before payout), April 24, May 15.

 TRIP questions can be answered by Donna or Nicki at school on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 8:30 – 2:00.

TRIP Order form can be printed off the school website if you need one.

Orders need to be in the TRIP box in the school office or given to Donna Koopmans by 8:30 AM on order dates in your family envelopeNo late orders will be taken. Do not fax or call orders to my house – money needs to accompany orders or they will not be processed. Please try to remind your child to bring the order to their teacher or the office right away when they get to school, so that orders will not be forgotten or late.
