As the snow melts and nature begins to bloom, we at iCademy would like to take the time to help preserve and protect the Earth around us. This week (5/2 – 5/6) we challenge you look around your home, yard, and parks to find litter that might be impacting the environment.
Collect the litter AND/OR gather recycling materials around your home, send a picture to your mentor by Thursday, May 5th at 3:30 PM, and you will be entered into a drawing for a special RISE Prize. Winners will be drawn at our RISE: Stewardship assembly on Friday, May 6th at 11:30 AM. We look forward to seeing the positive impact you bring to the world and those around you!

CLASSROOM & DAYCARE HELP NEEDED
Are you looking for a part-time job for one day or maybe two or three a week, sometimes? Do you enjoy working with children? Are you available from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm on a school day? We are looking for parents who can help be substitute teachers in our classrooms at Innocademy. When they are out, teachers leave a detailed schedule and lesson plans for a substitute to follow, easily, so students can continue their learning.
We also have an opening for someone to help in our staff daycare, if you’d rather work with young children from 3 months – 4 years old, instead. If you would like to learn more about either one of these positions, please reach out to Jessenia.firstname.lastname@example.org.

In these meetings, we discuss interests, post-secondary plans, and the classes/opportunities we can weave into your schedule that will be best for you. Please make an appointment here.
Thinking of opportunities, this week in seminar I shared some spring and summer job and learning opportunities available to students. These are just a drop in the bucket – there are many more out there! I encourage you to check these out as a family.
