Please Check Your Kiddos…
We have had a report of head lice at iCademy. Please take a moment to check your student(s) for lice and/or nits. You can find some great information on identification and clean up, here:

Are you interested in getting better grades? Gachnoimagazine.org lists the number one most important technique to getting better grades is to do all of your reading, writing, and studying at a table, sitting upright in a chair. They continue to add you should also have good lighting, fresh air, and fluids nearby. Following this technique can be worth double the amount of actual time you are spending. This means you will have more time for the fun things.
Tip: When doing live lessons or assignments, make sure you are sitting up in a chair (avoid being in your bed or lying on the floor). When you lay down to do your work, it is likely you will get sleepy and your mind will drift out of focus.
Old Info…Just in case =)

Stewardship Opportunity – Aid For The Carolinas
As you all know, Hurricane Florence is hitting the Carolinas hard. At iCademy Global, stewardship (thinking outside of ourselves) is a foundation of ours. Not only do we intentionally learn this but we want to also intentionally LIVE this. Attached you will see a few images of ways that we can help. Partnering with International Aid and The Tin Roof Market- we would like to provide you and your family a stewardship opportunity to donate items for International Aid to send to the Carolinas. The Tin Roof Market of Holland is an official drop off for these items and we will be collecting items at Homestead starting Tuesday the 18th and delivering them to The Tin Roof on a weekly basis. Any donation helps! For more information, send Ms. Mel a zoom!
