NEW INFO FOR THIS WEEK…
Middle School Dance – THIS WEEK FRIDAY!
If you are able to help chaperone or donate some snacks/drinks, please click on this link to sign up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0e4eaead2ca3fb6-spring1
Get your dancing shoes ready! Our Spring semi-formal dance is coming! On May 19th from 7pm-10pm, join us for the “Under The Sea” themed event. All middle schoolers from iCademy, InnoZeeland and InnoAllegan are invited to participate!
Next Year Commitment – We Still Need To Hear From 26 Students, Please!
If you have not yet spoken with your mentor about next year, please do that ASAP. We really need to have solid numbers for enrollment about returning students as we are already making plans for next school year! Thank you!
With the end of the year approaching, we wanted to spend some time reminding our families about the importance of focused school work on the iCademy Global devices. We have noticed an uptick in the use of google hangouts during school time and it has not been for academic purposes. It has been a distraction for some students. Please talk with your students about boundaries and healthy habits as a virtual learner as we are continuing to do the same.
Middle School Showcase Reminder
Thursday, June 15th is our Middle School Celebration. Here, 8th graders will be receiving awards as they graduate from our middle school and step into their new journey of high school. We will also be hosting our middle school showcase after the awards ceremony. Parents are welcome to attend both of these events starting at 9:30 am on Thursday the 15th. Each student, whether virtual or students who come on site will be participating in this event where they will be showcasing something from their year that they are either proud of, that pushed them out of their comfort zone, or that inspired them to think outside of themselves. We are prepping for this event in class, but please talk to your child/ren about it! It is going to be great!
Middle School Dance – THIS FRIDAY 5/19
This week Friday is the middle school spring dance! We are so excited! Your middle schooler is invited to come and dance the night away from 7-10 pm in our “Under The Sea” themed, semi-formal dance being held in the Innocademy cafeteria area. Snacks will be provided! The cost is FREE! Join the fun!
Career Pathways Experience- Innogroup Visit
Save the date of our next career field experience! Tuesday, June 6th, 9:00am – 12:00pm. Meet at Homestead campus at 8:30 am and transportation will be provided.
Check out the details contained HERE for more information!
Fuzzy Peach Middle School Dance Fundraiser
The middle school dance committee is hosting a night at Fuzzy Peach in Zeeland to help raise money for the dance. We thought it might be good to hold it during the kids May break week. It will be on Tuesday May 30th from 7-9 pm.
FREE – Workout in The Park – Saturday, May 20th
OLD INFO (In case you haven’t seen it, yet)…
Phonemic Awareness Tutor Training – FREE!!! Are You Able To Help, Please?
We are SO excited to be able to offer another Barton Intervention Tutor Training for anyone interested in helping our students achieve their learning goals!
What’s Barton Intervention? We are working on screening students at Innocademy and iCademy Global for strengths and challenges in the area of Phonemic Awareness…the fundamentals of reading. Simply put, Barton Intervention is a complete program created to help strengthen these foundations.
Thursday, May 18th from 5:30-8:00pm here at Homestead Campus.
Can’t make it, personally, but know someone (college student, favorite babysitter, grandparent, family friend) who would love to spend a couple of hours each week working one on one with one of our students? Send them over! We have LOTS of students on the list just waiting for tutors to be available.
Is YOUR student already receiving tutoring…and you just know that working with them one on one wouldn’t go over so well, but you’d love to help another student? We have parents in that situation and would love to help orchestrate a “swap”; you tutor my kid and I will tutor yours =).
Training is FREE! Please RSVP to Leisa at email@example.com if you are interested in attending.
Thank you, in advance, for supporting this important program and our students.
