News from “Plugged In”…formerly “Devos”

Wow, what a great year morning devotions at pluggedIN have been so far. Thank you for bringing your students before school starts for a chance to learn, pray, and build each other up in Christ.  Many stories have been shared about the great things being learned and the fun that is happening.   The number of students attending has grown significantly and we are looking for a few hands to help with “crowd control”.  If you feel you are able to assist for a morning, or more, to help coral listening ears to our parent-teachers, please sign up through the link below.  If you find yourself dropping your students off and have a couple of extra minutes to join our children at pluggedIN, please do and don’t forget to thank our great volunteers!  Thanks for considering helping out and thanks for letting us get to know your children, they are a joy!


As always please contact Jessica Knott, jessknott@att.net or Rebekah deVries,rfdevries02@gmail.com for any questions regarding pluggedIN.

Innocademy School Calendar 2017-2018

Many of you are already making plans for next year! Love the proactivity! We are currently working on the calendar for 2017-2018 and hope to release it, soon. Thank you!

Sign Up For Innocademy Texting!

Before our (what we thought was going to be awesome!) Infinite Campus notification system, we used a service called “Rained Out”. It sent you a notification if school was closed/delayed. I’ve refreshed the account so it’s ready to use again until our IC system is functioning correctly. If you signed up to use it before, you may just want to sign up, again, using the easy directions, below, just to make sure.

Here is how to sign up:

On your smartphone, prepare to send a text message

1) In the “To” section, type 84483

2) In the “message” section, type Innocademy (with capital “i”)

3) Hit “send”

You will receive confirmation that you are now part of the Innocademy text messaging system. If you do not receive a confirmation back, check with your carrier to see if they support “short code” messaging. You can email me with any issues and we can trouble shoot =).

REMINDER:  Inclement Weather Notifications – How We Let You Know Campus Is Closed:

As a general rule, Precademy, Innocademy and iCademy Global will follow decisions made by officials at Zeeland Public Schools. Decisions are usually made no later than 6:30am and notifications sent immediately. In the event that weather makes it necessary for us to delay or cancel school and campus events for the day, notifications will be sent by email, posted on Facebook, WOOD TV8 and WZZM Channel 13. If you are in question, please check these outlets prior to sending students to campus.

Fundraising Note From Our International Team – Sign Up, Now To Participate and Earn Funds!

We are going to be offering a bake sale to 3rd  – 8th grade students as another opportunity to earn money toward student field trip accounts!  Families with more than one student may sign each student up for their own week.  You will be able to sell baked goods in the RE:FUEL coffee shop for the entire week you are signed up!

Also, please see the attached document for our year-long student fundraising plan.



Thank you,

International Team
