Good afternoon Icard Elementary!

I hope that you have had a great weekend! We certainly had a busy week with benchmarks, field trips, and community helpers.  I am always so excited for community members to come in and see the high caliber of students we have at Icard!

As we enter cold and flu season, make sure that your child gets plenty of sleep, washes hands regularly, and consumes plenty of fluids.  

Because I firmly believe that education is a socio-economic equalizer, I am including two links in this communication on how important reading to and with your student is. (You can access these articles through the Icard Elementary FB page or the school webpage).I am also highlighting two statements I found to be especially important. 

"Students who read the most will read the best, achieve the most, and stay in school the longest. Conversely, those who don't read much, cannot get better at it." 
Jim Trelease

“One of the most important things parents can do, beyond keeping kids healthy and safe, is to read with them.”
Amy Joyce

You will need to schedule a time with your child’s teacher for a conference between October 31 and November 15.  If you fail to conference with your child’s teacher, a home visit may occur.  

Our kindergartners and first graders will be attending a play on Thursday.  Our Pre-K will be visiting an apple orchard on Friday.  

Thank you for entrusting your children to us!

Jeanene Burris, Principal
