Grades 2-8: New Student Buddy and Ambassador Program – We Need You!

Remember what it was like to be the new kid? Having a friend before school starts can make all the difference and we need your help! This is a great opportunity for rising 2nd through 8th grade students to help new students and families feel welcomed at ICS. You could even arrange a Zoom meet up as an easy way to connect with new students and families! During the first month of school, new students and their buddies/ambassador groups will also enjoy a fun pizza lunch at school! We plan to do Buddies for 2nd through 4th graders and Ambassador Groups for middle schoolers (grades 5 to 8), with multiple returning ICS students grouped with new students. We do our best to place buddies/ambassadors in the same homerooms, but this is not guaranteed. Please contact Lauren Gessner with the name and grade of each student who would like to volunteer, or with any questions. Thank you so much for your help and support!
