BAKE SALE (with Festival of Trees)

It’s time for the annual fall bake sale.  We will be having the bake sale along with the Festival of Trees on November 22/23.  We are asking each family to bring at least 3 items to sell – more is welcomed.  Please have items labeled and priced.  The list below is a good suggestion, but if you have more/different items to bring please feel free.  Please have your items to school by Friday, November 22 by 4 PM.  Pricing information is on back side.



CRAFT ITEMS (for Festival of Trees)

We are asking each family to donate 2 craft items for the craft sale at the Festival of Trees on November 22 and 23. These can be homemade or purchased crafts or gifts. Please price the crafts before bringing them to school. Items priced $25 or less sell the best. Items need to be at school no later than Thursday, November 21.



We seem to continue to have complaints of students not showing proper respect toward others on the bus.  Please talk with your children, especially older students with being better examples and doing the “right” thing.  Also, misuse of food on bus, not cleaning up or throwing away of wrappers.  These both need to change or we will not be allowing students to ride the bus until these change.  We value our bus drivers and need to keep them.  Thanks, Mr. Schoonhoven



Special Advanced Ticket price for ICS Families is $5! ($15 at the door) Get your tickets from the ICS office or a committee member (Tracy De Bruin, Amy Noyes, Kim Rens, Nicole Wielenga)



Just a reminder that ALL students in grades 5th – 8th grade participating in sports must have an athletic physical done each year.  Please turn in this form to the office when completed. This form must be turned in before your child is able to participate in the sporting event.



Kids of the Kingdom Preschool is currently selling Butter Braids.  If you would like to order, please contact Heidi Tubergen.  Deadline to order with payment is Tuesday, November 26.  Delivery date is Friday, December 13.



Thank you to everyone who donated gift cards for Caring for Classrooms (SchoolMall Program).  The teachers greatly appreciated having this to spend on supplies for the classrooms.



Upcoming Order Dates are:  November 18, December 9.

TRIP Order forms 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 envelope.  No 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 their orders to the office as soon as they get to school, so that orders will not be forgotten or late.




Thank you to all ICS/KOK families for attending Parent-Teacher Conferences last Tuesday.  We continue to appreciate the partnership with parents in training your children with a Christ-centered education.  Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher as needed, whether through media or in person. We greatly appreciate your involvement and support in your child’s education.  Mr. Schoonhoven
