Good afternoon Icard Elementary,


I hope that you have had a good week.  We have had another very productive week at Icard.  Students have continued working hard to learn skills that will help them be successful as they proceed in their educational journeys.


Four of our fourth and fifth graders were chosen as winners for the school speech contest and will represent Icard at the county competition to be held on Thursday, December 6, at the Old Rock School in Valdese.  These students are as follows: Zane Taylor-Prose, Dakota Goodwin-Poetry, Samuel Keaton-Original Composition, and Lannie DiMatteo-Notable Speech. 


Parents, you did an awesome job showing support for your child in that you participated in parent-teacher conferences.  THANK YOU!


On Tuesday, November 20, beginning at 1:00 P.M. in the gym, third through fifth-grade students will be recognized for their hard work during the first nine weeks of the 2018-19 school year at the academic excellence ceremony.  Parents and grandparents are invited to attend this ceremony and celebrate their child’s success.  Students will be allowed to leave with parents at the end of the ceremony, but students must be signed out if the ceremony concludes before 2:30. 


Remember, there will be NO SCHOOL on Wednesday 11/21, Thursday 11/22, and Friday 11/23 to observe the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Eat plenty of food, rest, and return to school on Monday, November 26, ready to learn!  Thank you!
