Two reminders tdoay:
1. This is Re-enrollment week. This year I have families who would like their students to attend ICA next year who are ready to jump on enrollment when it opens to the general public next week. If you would like your student to attend ICA next year, please enroll before the end of the week, including your $50 re-enrollment fee to be sure you retain a spot in the classroom.
2. Tonight is our third quarter awards and Electives Week Showcase dinner. It begins at 6:00 pm, and we should be done by 7:30. Your whole family is invited to enjoy the evening and Mrs. Chambers' taco bar!
You and your family are invited to dinner at ICA Tuesday, February 6th at 6:00 pm! We will exhibit new skills learned during this week's electives classes as well as celebrating our students' second quarter achievements. This is a dress protocol event (for the evening only - not to school unless they choose).
Many photos from Elective classes have been posted on our ICA closed Facebook page. If you are on FB and would like to connect, search Island Christian Academy group and request to be added. Members to the group must have a family connection to ICA.
Reminder: Re-enrollment for the 2018-19 school year starts Monday. See below for details
