High School Orientation

On Wednesday morning we were happy to host the grade 8 students for High School Orientation.  Please feel free review the presentation as it includes information pertaining to summer shopping. It may be helpful to review the presentation again before starting school on Monday, August 14 so that students feel prepared for the first day of school. We wish you a wonderful summer and are thrilled to welcome you to the high school in the fall.    

Library Materials

All Library materials must be returned By June 2. We will not issue student reports or transcripts until all Library materials have been returned. For any inquiries about Library returns, please contact Kim Tyo-Dickerson, MS/HS Librarian.

Final Semester reports will be issued on Friday, June 9 and emailed to parents. We will also print copies which will be distributed to students on June 9. Please address requests for transcripts to the HS Counseling Office, meron.tekalign@icsaddis.edu.et.

Farewell for the Summer

As another year draws to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the ICS community for your steadfast support of learning, in all its forms. We are proud of our students and of the positive relationships we enjoy with families and colleagues. Working in partnership with you this year has been a pleasure. I wish you the very best for the holidays and look forward to seeing you upon our return in August. To those of you who are leaving ICS, my best wishes for safe travels as you embark on this next stage of your careers. And to students, I hope you will find the time to relax, to have fun, and to read something for pleasure over the summer. Best wishes to all.
