The turn out to the Family Fun Night was astounding. Sorry for the wait for food, we will do better next year. Thanks to our parent, Terry Hovey, for the music and to the Parent Connection members who made it happen.
Make LUNA GRILL the hotspot this Thursday and every first Thursday of the month. Between 11-close show THIS FLIER for 20% to go towards playground materials at IA. So far this year, we have raised $122.41! We are off to a great start! This activity is sponsored by our Parent Connection.
#LoveIA Rocks CAMPAIGN.
What’s the buzz about? Well, here’s the 4-1-1. The Parent Connection has launched a communication campaign to share the stories about what parents love about our school!
Why? We have 2 major events on the horizon:
1. A new school property
2. Charter Renewal
- Share letters of stories & what you love about IA with us via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org(we will log them & share them with property owners and also in our Charter School Renewal Process. Can you imagine the district seeing hundreds of love letters about our school?
- Post your letter as a review to www.greatschools.org
- Decorate a rock & then write “#LoveIA” on it. Take it to YOUR HOME NEIGHBORHOOD. Place it somewhere public and snap a picture of it. Post that picture on any social media platform (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) with the same “#LoveIA” hashtag. Then leave it for a neighbor to find and hopefully look it up & do the same. We should all use this same hashtag when posting pictures throughout the year on our social media pages. That way all of these pictures & memories will pull up when someone looks up the hashtag on any search engine. Pretty cool huh?
We are creating a movement of celebration of all of the amazing things happening at our school & in our homes, as a result of quality engaging experiential learning and no homework power! Please join in.

The IA 2017 Annual Fundraising Pledge Drive is under way! In past years we have raised money for laptops, chromebooks, microscopes, art supplies and buses. This year, our theme is “Get Our Bus on the Road!” and we are raising money for gas, maintenance, and a bus driver for our new bus; AND a new sound system for our Multi-Purpose Room. 100% participation from all families is important so we can show grantors, the school district, and other potential partners the level of commitment our families have for our wonderful school.

Student Led Conferences are coming next week. Please make an appointment. We have had 100% participation for the last few years and we feel it is important that all parents, as the primary educators of their children, become familiar with the work being done at school.
