Christmas Cookie/Goodie Walk

For the soup supper bake sale this year, we will be having a Christmas goodie plate. We are asking each family to bring 3 doz (or more) Christmas cookies and/or candy. (They do not need to be priced.) At the soup supper, you can look at what is available & pick what you would like to put on your plate. We will weigh your selection & each pound will sell for $7. Some ideas for goodies to bring are fudge, Christmas cutout cookies, peanut butter balls, oreo balls, bing bars, peanut clusters, etc. These will make great snacks to take to all those holiday gatherings, give away to teachers, mailmen, bus drivers, etc. Any questions, please contact Kim Rens or Angela Kuperus

From the PTA

It’s Christmas time and the season of giving. We would like to show our teachers, and all of our staff (bus drivers, cook, librarian, secretaries, and everyone who works here in our school) how much we appreciate what they do for our school. So, we need your help in giving our staff a Christmas gift from all of us here at ICS and KOK. If you would like to contribute to the gift we give the teachers and staff there will be a box sitting out by the office for the next few weeks, and also sitting out at the musical coming up next week for you to place your money in. Please help us give a gift to our staff this holiday season. The PTA will take this money and equally distribute it between all the staff before the Christmas break. Thanks so much for helping us with this. If you have any questions please contact Bryan or Mandy Bonnema


Jr. High Des Moines Trip

We are planning on Thursday, May 3 to go on our Jr. High Des Moines Trip.  Each student will need to raise $40-45 for the trip.  This includes fee for Living History Farms and 2 meals.  We encourage students to do jobs to earn money instead of parents paying for it.  Ideas include…bake sale, raking leaves, helping grandparents.




Upcoming order dates are: December 11


TRIP questions can be answered by Donna or Nicki at school on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 8:30 – 2:00.


We do have $10 Applebees, $15 iTunes, and $10 Barnes and Noble on hand (first come first serve) for those little last minute gifts.


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.
