Red, pink, sugar and hearts made today a lovely day with plenty of smiles around ICA. We had a great day celebrating the friendships with which we are blessed.
Several classes have intriguing field trips this month which you may not be aware of:
PreK to Payless: We are very thankful to the generous people at Payless who hosted our PreK class last week for a store tour with emphasis on healthy foods as a culmination to a study on nutrition. The produce man gave each student five pieces of fruit to represent the five servings of fruit they should have each day. Each student was able to scan and pay for his/her own cheese stick with dimes provided by the store.
Our 6th-8th grade students will be traveling to Providence Regional Medical Center for a presentation where they can see human organs like hearts, lungs, brains, livers, and kidneys that have been impacted by harmful habits and lifestyles and compare them to healthy organs.
High School students in Mr. Bacigalupi's American Government class will be traveling next Tuesday to Olympia to tour the capitol, meet with some of our legislators, and observe the government at work!
There are almost always pictures posted of these trips on our closed Facebook Group. If you are a Facebook person, search for Island Christian Academy Group and request to join.
We're thankful to each of these teachers and Mrs. Ohme for arranging these educational opportunities outside of the classroom!
Uniform investigation: I have responses from 38% of families so far, and I sincerely appreciate each response received. My goal is to hear from everyone before coming to a decision along with the board. I truly want to know what you think. If you have not responded to the uniform question yet, please do so after reading the information found here.
Reenrollment information for the 2017-18 school year will be sent out the last week of February for a March 10th completion date. We are already having inquiries and tours for next year, but will not open up seats to those families until March 13th.
Hopefully you'll take a minute to open up the attachment and take note of some of the announcements and events coming up!
