Greetings Icard Elementary,


What a wonderfully exciting and productive week we had last week!  I personally and thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the students in a fun but service-oriented way as we all engaged in Spirit Week!  We collectively raised close to one thousand dollars for United Way.


I especially thank all of you who participated in Math-O-Ween.  Over 33% of our students were represented at this event. Parents and guardians, participation in these types of activities is so important in promoting the success of your students!


We will be having NC Check-in benchmarking for our third, fourth, and fifth, graders this week.  This is a benchmark.  These assessments are not for grading; they simply give teachers information as to how students are progressing in their attainment of specific knowledge.  Your job is to simply get your well-rested student to Icard on time each morning.


Kindergartners will be going to Divine Farms on Thursday, and on Friday, community helpers such as firemen, policemen, nurses, and more will be presenting to our kindergarten through second graders. 


Have a great week Icard!


Jeanene Burris, Principal
