The Auction Meeting is tonight at 7:00 pm in the gym here at ICA. I hope to see one representative from each family. You'll have opportunity to sign up in the business book as well as pick up your auction packet. We'll try to simplify the auction process for you and hope you will leave with some great ideas.
The other big news it that tomorrow (9/20) is a half day with early release at 12:30. Bus service is available.
Big news to come: Grandparents Day is just a month away, October 17th 10:00 am - noon, and we would love to invite your child's grandparent(s) or special friend to join us for a student-directed tour around the school, a performance by each class as well as a luncheon they can enjoy together with their grandchild. We realize families don't always have grandparents nearby, so if there is a family friend who may want to come in place of a grandparent, we are all for that. If that doesn't fit your situation, a parent is welcome to come and enjoy the day with their child. One year a parent even dressed up as a grandma, which was very entertaining for all of us! If none of those options sounds viable, I happen to know some local grandpas and grandmas (including my own parents) who would love to come and be a surrogate grandparent for the day. Just let me know! We would be glad to send an invitation to whomever you choose, so if you haven't yet done so, please send the teacher the appropriate address and we'll be sure to let them know about the event.
Other news: Picture Day is next Tuesday for the whole school, with the exception of the 3K class who will be taking their pictures the following Monday, October 2nd. Most of our K3 group only attend M-W-F - the reason for the exception.
1st Quarter Physical Quest: Quest #2--a Physical feat (up to 40 points possible)
Take a hike!
The weather is still great, so head outdoors for a walk. Find an adult who will take you out on one of our many local trail systems for a walk in the woods or along the beach. There are so many to choose from, and the longer the hike, the more points you can build for your individual point total and for your whole house!
Less than 1 mile = 10 points
1-2 miles = 20 points
3-4 miles = 30 points
4+ miles = 40 points
How to report: Have your mom or dad email or write a note to Mrs. Ohme to tell where and how far you walked.
Please peruse the attached MT for more!
