Ice fishing tournament

Ireton Christian School will be hosting its 4th annual ice fishing tournament on January 18 at Emerson Bay on West Lake Okoboji. More details and registration forms will also be available on the school website at www.iretonchristianschool.com.  Please invite family and friends to participate in the fun with many prizes to be won!  For any questions, please contact committee members Mary Hooyer (712-540-3019) or Angie Zomermaand (712-441-4337).  Tip, if you want to avoid the online processing fees, you can print a form off the school website and send a check to school by Jan 16.

Food/Supply List can be found online. 

Remember to bring your items to school by Friday!



Please remind your child to bring their instruments to and from school each Tuesday and Thursday. Many students have been leaving their instruments at school for several days in a row or forgetting to bring them.

This will affect their grades for this quarter if things do not improve soon.


February activities:

  • February we celebrate “Spirit Month” with many fun activities each week. We start with our pep rally and school colors/clothing day on Friday, January 24.
  • February we will also be doing our annual Read-A-Million Minutes (RAMM) for the entire month of February. If students meet their required goal, they will get to do an extracurricular activity.
