Pixie week is THIS WEEK!
We ask that this be a week of relational building and encouragement among out students and staff. A fun and simple way to show kindness, love, and joy to each other. Everyone is asked to bring items listed each day during “Pixie” week for the name they drew.
Below is a list of what your child should bring for their pixie this week:
Thursday: Candy/Nutritious snack
Friday: 1 Drink and 1 snack item for pixie
(prefer a resealable drink)
THANK YOU to all who helped contribute and/or participated in our Ice Fishing Tournament last weekend. We raised over $1,720. Thanks again for making it a success for the ICS Auxiliary!
BOX TOPS DEADLINE
Please keep sending box tops to school. Deadline to get them in for our spring submission is Friday, February 21. Thank you!
