If you have been in the office lately, you may have noticed a “new” face sitting at the front desk. While not new to Innocademy, Ms Krista, is new to the position of Office Coordinator. She has been working for IAC since 2019 as a Parapro in the lower elementary classrooms and is excited to be in a new role utilizing her extensive office experience while also still getting to interact with your kiddos everyday.
Julie Sopko, a parent and former IAC board member, has now joined our team to replace Ms Krista in the classroom. Julie grew up in the Chicago suburbs, but feels most at home here in West Michigan. She loves spending time with her family and pets, which include two dogs and too many cats. In her spare time, you can find Julie antique shopping, reading, or volunteering for her favorite pet rescues. She is excited to be here at IAC, watching our youngest friends grow!
Please make arrangements…
A few of our students were the lucky recipients of a pancake breakfast with Ms Shelly this past week after their names were drawn out of the tcket bucket at our last PBIS Assembly.
Are you curious how their names get in the ticket bucket? As staff notices students making good choices and following our rules of being IAC (In Control, Aware and Caring), they are given a ticket. The day before each break week, we gather at a PBIS Assembly to celebrate accomplishments in the classroom and around the school. Any tickets the students have recieved go in a bucket and they have the opportunity to win fun prizes like extra recess, fancy lunch and pancake breakfasts.
Break Week Intervention
IAC is excited to offer a pilot program during our February break week. Thanks to some extra funding from the state, we are offering additional support to K-5 students by invitation only. If your child qualified for the program, they would have brought home a note on Wednesday of this week. Please be sure to sign and return if you would like for your child to participate. If we don’t hear back from every family who received a note, we will reach out directly.
During our February break week, students will come to school from 8:45-3:30 on Monday-Thursday. The mornings will be spent working in small groups with teachers to support their ELA and Math growth. For the afternoons, students will be bussed from school to the Outdoor Discovery Center where they will continue their work in a nature-based setting.
Bussing will be offered and routes finalized once we know student participation. Lunch will be provided, free of charge.
February Lunch Menu
Winter is here!
Please make sure you are sending gloves, hats, snow pants and snow boots to school everyday. Your kiddos want to play in the snow but they don’t want to be cold and wet when they come inside!
