Speaking of Art Prize

“Michigan’s Living Treasure” our Art Prize entry has been installed at our venue, Jam n Bean coffee shop which is in the Waters Building, 161 Ottawa, a few blocks behind the GRAM art museum. We have a chance to win the popular vote if all our families vote for us when we are down at Art Prize. Our voting number is 67878.  All our Innocademy and Las Huellas students have helped create this work of art and I hope all our families will get a chance to see is displayed.  Remember to VOTE!

Hot Lunch Payments

Just a friendly reminder to add money to your students’ lunch accounts if they are planning to order hot lunch. You may utilize or send in cash or checks to school in a labeled envelope with your child and deposited behind Ms. Heidi’s desk. Checks can be made payable to Holland Christian Food Service.

If you haven’t yet had an opportunity to see if you qualify for free/reduced cost lunch, please fill out this confidential, online form at . For school district, select Holland Christian and Innocademy will be listed as a school under that district.
