New Message from Mrs. Burris!

Good afternoon Icard Elementary,

I hope that you have had a great weekend! I know that several of our students had ballgames. I hope that did your best and succeeded. Here are just a few reminders for the week.

Monday, September 24, our fourth and fifth graders will be participating in the school spelling bee beginning at 9:00 A.M. in the gym. Parents of participants are invited to attend. Tuesday, September 25, is a very important day. Our first interim reports will go home. Parents, please check take-home-Tuesday folders for these reports. Contact the teacher or the school concerning any questions you may have in reference to these reports. Thursday, September 27, our fourth graders will be going on a field trip to Catawba Meadows to engage in the Overmountain Victory Trail commemoration of the revolutionary route patriot militia used to help pave the way to American independence. 

Friday, September 28, all Icard students will attend an assembly to kick-off our fundraiser for this year. After much discussion, the leadership team decided to once again sponsor a traditional fundraiser. Icard Elementary students will be selling coupon books. The profit for each book sold will be 50% which is more than the 40% from sales in previous years. It would be fantastic if we could average selling 3 coupon books per student. The funds made from these sales help to supply the necessary money the following:
1. Awards and recognitions 
2. Field trips 
3. Extracurricular activities
All of these aforementioned items focus on our students and serving them. Please consider this, as we work together to be successful.

Have a great week!

Jeanene Burris, Principal
