 Happy New Year everyone!

 A heartfelt welcome to our new students and families who are starting their 2nd semester at IA.
As always we are off and running! Teacher Treat day and our January Parents Pride meeting will take place on Friday the 11th. Please send in a snack item for our faculty and join us in Room 202 at 8:15am for a very brief Pride update. Immediately following our meeting we will be helping with the set up of the Middle School SNOWCOMING DANCE. ALL available hands on deck are much appreciated. Holly McAndrew and Stephanie Payrits have planned a wonderful time for the kids.

~MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENTS AND TEACHERS, you are cordially invited to attend the 3rd Annual SNOWCOMING DANCE! Parents Pride will have snacks and coffee available in the pride room at 6:30pm. Mingle while stealing some pictures of the kiddos. Our middle school children really do enjoy having their parents and teachers at this event!~

Please save the dates: Saturday, February 9th is our 1st Annual Father Daughter Sweetheart Dance and Saturday, February 23rd is our awesome and reinvented IA FUN RUN & 5K. Be on the lookout for more info and ways to help out.

*HELP PLEASE....our supply closet is almost empty! The following items would be much appreciated: Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer, swiffer wet wipe refills, pencils and loose leaf paper, both college and wide ruled. Hand & dish soap along with sponges for the teachers lounge. Also does anyone have an extra vacuum cleaner that they no longer need? We heard that the teachers of hallways 300 & 400 would LOVE and extra one:) THANKS A BUNCH! 
Warm wishes and many blessings,
Sabrina Ullmann, Lisa Hodo and Parents Pride
