Just two reminders today along with the information on the attached MT document:
We hope to see you at Back to School Night tonight starting at 6:30 in the classrooms, and then again next week for the mandatory auction meeting at 7 pm in the gym. Descriptions of each event follows below:
I'll be out in the foyer if you would like to join me after your meeting for some lemonade and goodies!
Back to School Night, Tuesday, September 12th 6:30-8:00: You are invited to visit your student’s classroom on this evening to hear about classroom expectations and curriculum for the year. Not only will you be able to speak personally with the teachers, but you will get the chance to engage other parents as well. There will be refreshments in the courtyard area for those who would like to stick around to chat or meet some of our new families. Students typically do not attend this event. Each classroom will present the same information three times at 30-minute intervals: 6:30, 7:00 and 7:30. This is so parents with multiple students have the opporunity to hear the presentation from every teacher. This is not a time for individual conferences with the teacher about your student, but more geared toward presentation of information to the group. They are glad to conference with you at another time if needed.
Fundraising Meeting, Tuesday, September 19th: This is a mandatory meeting (unless you have chosen to opt out of auction) for at least one parent to attend for information on our one large fundraiser for the year. Auction doesn't happen until November 18th, but auction season kicks off at this meeting. You will receive your auction packet at this time along with coaching and instruction to make the process as easy as possible for everyone. It is also the first time our auction "book" is available for you to sign up for businesses you may have a personal connection with. The last important detail is you will be able to choose your auction job. This is an all-hands-on-deck event and we need your help! We will do our best to answer all of your questions, so you leave with confidence and ideas to help us meet our auction goal so we can continue to keep our tuition affordable for families on South Whidbey.
Did you know we pray for our school and students regularly in our staff devotion time from 8:00-8:30 every morning? We are delighted to serve your families. We are discovering how your students have been "fearfully and wonderfully made" referring to Psalm 149:14 -where the word fearfully means: with great reverence, heart-felt interest and with respect., and the word wonderfully means: unique, set apart, marvelous. Thanks for being a part of the ICA family!
