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 envelope.

 No late orders will be taken.  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.




All library books are due Tuesday. Parents will be asked to pay for books that are not returned by that date. Summer reading bingo sheets will be sent home this week with the students.  Please consider doing this optional activity to keep your student’s reading skills sharp over the summer.  Read and record the books your child reads and bring the sheet back in the fall for prizes and chances for bigger prizes for each bingo earned.

Congratulations to Readers Students in grades 3-8 will be rewarded with a pizza party for earning 4000 AR points this year next week.  Way to go, ICS students!  Individual awards for highest readers overall and in each class will be given out next week.
