    Back to School Night at ICS

    Early in the school year, ICS holds Back-to-School nights for elementary, middle and high schools. In these evenings, parents are invited to walk through their children’s schedule, classroom and meet the teachers and aides. They will also be able to meet the principal, nurse, and other staff members, and of course fellow parents. Parents can also sign up to join the PTA or other parent groups.

    Moreover, Back-to-School nights will give the teacher an opportunity to let parents know what students will be doing and learning during the year. It is also an opportunity for parents to learn about the curriculum.

    First Week of School

    2014-15 is off to a great start at ICS. ES, MS and HS students had a fantastic first day with their teachers. The ice-breakers, information sessions, and other activities allowed students to get to know one another and to be better prepared for their courses before attending class, reducing further interruptions to instructional time and setting up a foundation for productive and collaborative relationships throughout the year.
