Thank you parents for your generosity!

The faculty and staff send a BIG thank you to parents for the generous show of appreciation during Teacher Appreciation Week. The luncheon was delicious. Teachers and staff appreciated the great breakfast snack food that was set out for them during the week as well. Thank you for showing your support in tangible ways to the ICS team. We are truly blessed to have such great faculty and staff at ICS and equally blessed to have so many wonderful parents show support for the ICS team throughout the entire school year.  We thank the PTF, especially Kay Hoffman, Kelley Pinzon and Niko Stemple for organizing the luncheon and the Parent Service Teams for the snack bars.  You did a great job!
