“As a child in a military family, I was always the new kid at school. Before I graduated from high school, I attended eight different schools in five different states.

You probably have at least one story about your sweet, beautiful child transforming into a rage monster in 60 seconds or less after struggling with a particularly difficult assignment.
It is difficult to convey in words, or even in photos, what it is like to experience a total eclipse of the sun. For those who have entered the narrow zone of totality during a solar eclipse, it is a strange and inspiring moment. In the aftermath, I am left with feelings of wonder and awe at this spectacle that continues to touch the earth and captivate human beings everywhere.
Introduction by Mr. Stephen Danish, ICS Head of School:
Ashley Traficant graduated from Immanuel Christian School in 2004. She loves Jesus, books, people, basketball, and learning new things. Ashley graduated from Liberty University, and is now thankful to be experiencing one of her life goals, to be working in politics, a dream she has had since elementary school. She is now 26 years old, and works as the Senate Legislative Director for the Christian non-profit Concerned Women for America, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization.
One of the things we are proud of at ICS is our music program! Not only is music built into our curriculum, but we offer many opportunities for students to try out instruments they are interested in through orchestra and after school voice and piano lessons. Elementary school is a stage of life where students have the time and freedom to really explore and cultivate the gifts God has given them.
Mrs. Alvarado brought Science to life for her eighth graders this morning through 4D Elements, an augmented reality app that allows classes to watch elements interact before their eyes.
Students brought in their tablets and iPhones (with parental permission, of course!) and Mrs. Alvarado supplied the paper cubes offered as a free download through the app. Through their screens, students watched ordinary paper images spring to life and react with one another.
