Hard Work Pays Off
Many of the students in ICCS have found their vocational path and with the assistance of the faculty/staff, have begun studying for what we all hope will be a lifelong career.

This is the case for Taylor Small who has earned her certification as a Home Health Aide. Taylor has worked in elder care facilities since beginning ICCS and is a proud member of the Ann Whalen Healthcare Services Program.

Taylor will begin the next phase of her career development by studying to be a Personal Care Assistant.

Congratulations Taylor!
Etkin Environmental Center Becomes a Trailblazer

The activity at the Etkin Environmental Center has been nonstop since the completion of Northern Harvest, our greenhouse. Students have built almost 2 miles of perimeter hiking trails that span both campuses, they have planted and cared for flowers enjoyed campus-wide, and they are most proud of donating the bounty of Northern Harvest. Chef Alex and Chef Shari have created delicious dishes with what has been grown. All ICCS students enrolled in the Environmental Science and Conservation classes have begun a multi-year service learning project designed around sustainability and our environmental center. The ICCS Green Team, made up of student representatives, have taken on the task of educating all students and staff about how to adjust to a greener lifestyle. They are using the handbook as their guide. For a copy of this important document, please contact us and we would be happy to send you an electronic copy.

Peace Prevails on Campus
On September 21, 2018, the whole school community gathered to dedicate new peace poles on campus. It was fitting to celebrate International Peace Day in this fashion and we were fortunate to be led by Dr. Toni Ciarfella, the Dutchess County Deputy Commissioner for Special Needs. To learn more about peace poles, their history and significance: Peace Pole

We are proud to emphasize our cultural diversity each day with such wonderful symbols.
Parents' Weekend
We are looking forward to seeing everyone on campus for Parents' Weekend. Just a reminder that the Gala Auction is dedicated to our Head of School, Donna Konkolics to honor her retirement. Be ready to celebrate in Disney style!
