Tulip Festival Float:

If anyone is interested and willing to help with school’s 100th anniversary float for the Tulip Festival, please contact Marlin.

We are planning on K-4th Grade riding the float on Thursday at the 2:00 parade and Preschool, 5th – 8th Grade riding the float on Friday at the 2:00 parade.  We will be taking a bus with the children both afternoons to Orange City and back, so parents are not required to attend the afternoon parades.  But, we are asking for families to volunteer to come and have their children ride the float for the 6:00 parade on Thursday evening and Friday evening. 



We are planning our annual campout on May 5.  We will pick boys up at school and go to the South pit. Please pick up your child by 4:00 on Saturday afternoon. Thanks!




Upcoming order dates are: 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.



Hello ICS family! I wanted to take a moment to let you know that Kenton and I are adopting! We are very excited about the journey God has us on and cannot wait to meet the sweet babe that God has picked out for us. First and foremost, we would like to invite you to pray for us throughout the process. There is also an opportunity to help support us financially. Our first fundraiser is currently underway and we would love to have you participate! The “Precious” shirt runs in sizes 2T to 3XL and comes in Irish green. The “Joy” shirt runs in adult sizes only and comes in sapphire blue or dark grey. We will deliver the shirts after they are printed in a few weeks. Please order and pay online by May 5! If you would like to support us, but don’t want to purchase a shirt, you can donate directly to us. We greatly appreciate all the prayers and support!                       Mrs. Stina Howie
