It’s time again to show our teachers and staff here at Ireton Christian and KOK how much we appreciate what they do for our kids through-out the year.  Staff appreciation week is April 1-5.

Instead of having to bring specific things on each day, we are going to let you decide what you would like to bring each day.  We are hoping this way the teachers will receive a variety of different items to encourage them each day of that week.  The following are ideas for you to use to show your appreciation:  Thank-You Note, Drink/Beverage Day, Fruit Day, Baked Good/Goodie Day, Your choice-be creative Day.

Let’s show our staff and teachers how much we appreciate and value their influence and impact in our children’s day to day life.  Thank you!

Questions, please contact Benjy Weida.



The Bluegrass Gospel Concert work list came home a couple weeks ago. Please look it over carefully to see if you are scheduled to work. You only have to work at this every 2 years, so if you worked last year, you don’t have to work this year. If you aren’t able to work when you are assigned, please find someone to replace you and let Mandy Bonnema know that you switched. Thanks so much!

Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend one of the concerts. Your family gets free admission and this year we have 2 groups again. Please try to attend with your family so we can give them an Ireton Christian School welcome.
