Thanks A Lot

Dear Families,
      Thanks for all you do! Your kiddos made this special THANKFUL treat just for you: Video – Thanks A Lot
      Please also check your Champion’s backpack and yellow folder for tons of awesomeness! (A big THANK YOU goes out to our Room Mamas and volunteers who helped us create some fun goodies this week!)
      I hope everyone has an amazing break. Enjoy your time with family and friends!
We will see you on Wednesday, January 2nd for a full day of school. (It will not be a late start day).
      Thank you, also, to Raffi for providing the song for our video:

Field Trip!

We had a super exciting day visiting our permanent campus! We learned a lot, saw the construction in action, and got to sign a beam that will be part of the school’s structure! WLOS was there too!

We will leave ICI shortly after arrival so
please be sure that your Champion arrives to school on time.
Please be sure that your child packs a
disposable lunch and disposable water bottle.
