Second Tutor Training Opportunity – October 26th
We are working to be able to screen our students at iCademy Global and Innocademy for their strengths in phonemic awareness. These are the fundamentals of reading. We are finding students who are in need of some support beyond what can be offered each day in the classroom.
We have the resources – Barton Intervention is a complete, research based program proven to strengthen these foundations!
We have the FREE training!
WE NEED YOU!!
SO excited to be able to offer a Barton Intervention Tutor Training for anyone interested in helping our students achieve their learning goals! Absolutely no experience necessary!
October 26th from 6-8:30pm
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.
Whatever time you can offer during the week would be so appreciated! 1 hour, 2 hours or even more!
Training is FREE!
Please simply RSVP to email@example.com if you wish to attend.
Thank you, in advance, for supporting this important program and our students.
Tulip Time Dancing for 3rd, 4th & 5th Grade Students!
Weather Delays/Closed Campus
When Mother Nature decides to make travel to campus dangerous we may find it necessary to cancel or delay on site options for that day. We determine morning cancellations based on Zeeland Public Schools; If they are closed due to weather, our campus will be closed. If they delay due to weather, we will delay. GREAT news, though! Since we are an online school, students can continue their learning at home for any days where we experience a delay or closing of campus. All due dates are still in effect. If campus is closed, we will notify you by the following methods:
- Email to parents
- Facebook post
- WZZM 13
- iCademy group text message through Rained Out (sign up for this service by texing “icademy” to 84483. You will receive a message back saying you are signed up. Please contact Leisa if you have trouble firstname.lastname@example.org)
In the event of a 2 hour delay, campus will be open at 11am. On these days, there will only be a HOT lunch choice for the day as Ms. Rosie won’t have time to prepare both choices..
Have You Accessed Your Parent/Observer Account?
Each parent/guardian should have a parent/observer account associated with your student. If you do not have one, please email Deedee at email@example.com so that she can set one up for you. If you aren’t sure, simply go to this link: https://icademy.ems.connexus.com/ and enter your firstname.lastname as the username and password will be #iCademy17.
Why Do You Need A Parent/Observer Account?
This is the primary way that your child’s teacher will communicate with you and makes it easy for you to connect with them on questions. It’s also the place you will look for general communications from your grade teams. This account also helps you clearly see what your student needs to do and has already completed. If you have questions, please contact your child’s mentor or teacher.
Amazon Smile – Help iCademy While You Shop! =)

Everyone, Please Read – Free/Reduced Lunch Applications.
Each year iCademy Global receives additional funding based on our family population that may qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch. Seems funny for an online school, I know, but it’s the truth! This additional funding works out to be a HUGE budget line item for us.
We are in danger of foregoing some funding this year simply because we have fewer families that have filled out the application. EEEK!!
We need your help! Even if you think you won’t qualify, or your kiddos might never even take hot lunch, PLEASE take a moment and fill out the CONFIDENTIAL online form. Every little bit helps our schools! Just go to lunchapp.com….search for our school through Holland Christian (they are our hot lunch provider).
You will be notified if you qualify and you can then decide if you would like to participate if/when your students are ever on campus.
Thank you, in advance, for your help in securing extra funding for our students and programs.
