Helping with JRL – the library for our students

Do you love books? Do you love kids? This opportunity might be for you! We are looking for help in our Just Right Library (JRL) on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday mornings. You would need to be available to be at school between 9:00am and 11:00am on the morning you choose.

The ability to come in on a regular basis is important, but it is totally fine if you are not able to make it every once in while.

The tasks you are asked to do will be the following:

1. Checking in the JRL books that our younger and youngest friends checked out on the previous day.

2. Checking out the new books for these students (depending on the day 2 or 4 classes)

3. Putting the books that got returned back on their shelves.

4. Having fun by getting to know our younger and youngest friends.

If you are interested in helping, please contact Ms. Claudia at jrl@innocademy.com

Thank you for considering! We are looking forward to meeting you in the JRL library!!!

OLD INFORMATION…Just in Case =)

Parking Lot Safety

Friendly reminder regarding parent and student safety at end-of-the-day pickup. We’re hoping that you’ve noticed the Safeties, directing car and foot traffic, during dismissal each day.

Screen Shot 2018-08-12 at 10.12.09 PM

When picking up your child at 3:30, you are always more than welcome to park in the lot and walk to your child on the side of the building. We are asking that if you choose to do so, that you please only cross the line of pickup cars with the assistance of our Safeties! Yes, you may need to walk a few extra steps to cross at the front of the line, but this ensures everyone’s safety, AND sets a great example for your kiddos to only cross traffic when it is safe!

After School Enrichment Sign Up Link

Arrival

Students may arrive each morning at 8:35am. Please do not drop students off earlier. There is no playground supervision prior to 8:35am each day. To help everyone remember the drop off time, there are signs in the drop off area of the parking lot. At 8:35am each morning, our safeties will remove these signs so that you may drop students off.

Handicapped Parking Spaces

There are spaces next to the building on each side for those who need them. Unless you have a sticker, mirror tag or license plate indicating a need to park in those spaces, please park in the spaces located in the bigger lot areas – – even if you are intending to only be there for a quick minute. Thank you!

Dismissal

Students will be dismissed at 3:30pm each day. Please stay in your car and travel around the parking lots according to the map, below. If you choose to physically walk and retrieve your child, please park in the designated parking spaces and walk to your child – – it is super dangerous for parents to call to their child from the other side of the parking lot and ask them to sprint through cars. For the safety of our students and drivers, we ask that you do not do that.

Please read the map, carefully, to determine on which side of the building you will drop off and pick up your student.

Construction Update

We have been working with M-DOT regarding the current construction. They have graciously agreed to work with the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department to provide help during dismissal times each day.

We will update you about plans for October as we get closer, but please plan extra time to arrive and depart from school until Thanksgiving Break.

I am very proud of their hard work and then at the end saying “that was fun”. Hoping they remember that even if they did not do the mess they can still choose to help.

What IS The Outdoor Learning Environment, Anyway?

When we first moved into Homestead Campus 6 years ago, we began developing a vision for what the Outdoor Learning Environment could become! Over the last 6 years it has gone from a grassy field full of pricker bushes to a place where students thrive and they, as well as the greater community, get a chance to sharpen their saws! Please see below for the artist’s original rendering of the vision for the space. While the 2nd slide says “future” the future is HERE! And we need your help to make this vision a reality! Please plan on attending the fundraiser on June 21st!

Summer Technology Camp Opportunity for Girls

Camp Infinity is a week-long summer technology camp for girls entering 5th to 8th grade that introduces technology as fun and fulfilling and inspires the pursuit of technology education. MCWT Foundation created it to address the primary reasons girls lose interest in technology: confidence, social relevance, and social (peer) acceptance.

The camp:

  • Builds confidence and capability with hands-on technology activities such as robotics and computer game design
  • Demonstrates that technology is fun through the execution of engaging projects with other girls, with high school girls as counselors
  • Reinforces social relevance by featuring visitors from the local technology community that explain how their work is important to society at large

Founded in 2004, Camp Infinity helps spark girls’ interest in math and science, which tends to decrease during middle-school years. It separates the girls into two groups of 20 by grade to better cater to their technological experience. The fourth and fifth grade girls focus on website, app and video game design while the sixth and seventh graders focus on robotics and web and app design.

During lunch, professionals from leading area companies meet with the girls and encourage them to continue learning about technology. Access to role models like these reinforces the rewards and opportunities a career in technology can bring.

Date: Holland – July 16th thru July 19th

  • Lunch will be provided each day.
  • Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided each day.
  • All camp supplies will be provided.
  • Camp Infinity times are from 8:30am-3:30pm Monday – Thursday
  • Cost: $75/camper. Limited scholarships are available to reduce the cost to $25/camper.

Congratulations to these talented artists and everyone who submitted work!

What IS The Outdoor Learning Environment, Anyway?

When we first moved into Homestead Campus 6 years ago, we began developing a vision for what the Outdoor Learning Environment could become! Over the last 6 years it has gone from a grassy field full of pricker bushes to a place where students thrive and they, as well as the greater community, get a chance to sharpen their saws! Please see below for the artist’s original rendering of the vision for the space. While the 2nd slide says “future” the future is HERE! And we need your help to make this vision a reality! Please plan on attending the fundraiser on June 21st!

Summer Technology Camp Opportunity for Girls

Camp Infinity is a week-long summer technology camp for girls entering 5th to 8th grade that introduces technology as fun and fulfilling and inspires the pursuit of technology education. MCWT Foundation created it to address the primary reasons girls lose interest in technology: confidence, social relevance, and social (peer) acceptance.

The camp:

  • Builds confidence and capability with hands-on technology activities such as robotics and computer game design
  • Demonstrates that technology is fun through the execution of engaging projects with other girls, with high school girls as counselors
  • Reinforces social relevance by featuring visitors from the local technology community that explain how their work is important to society at large

Founded in 2004, Camp Infinity helps spark girls’ interest in math and science, which tends to decrease during middle-school years. It separates the girls into two groups of 20 by grade to better cater to their technological experience. The fourth and fifth grade girls focus on website, app and video game design while the sixth and seventh graders focus on robotics and web and app design.

During lunch, professionals from leading area companies meet with the girls and encourage them to continue learning about technology. Access to role models like these reinforces the rewards and opportunities a career in technology can bring.

Date: Holland – July 16th thru July 19th

  • Lunch will be provided each day.
  • Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided each day.
  • All camp supplies will be provided.
  • Camp Infinity times are from 8:30am-3:30pm Monday – Thursday
  • Cost: $75/camper. Limited scholarships are available to reduce the cost to $25/camper.

Taco Tuesday- will kick off our celebration serving the teachers tacos. Food being provided by Mi Favorita Grocery, part of our Inno Family
Wild Wednesday- kids bring 2 (wild) flowers to share with their teacher and a specials teacher (male teachers will win points with their wives if they bring home a vase of flowers!)
Thank-you Thursday- will be such a blessing to have each kid bring in a thank you card for their teacher(s)
Favorite Friday- is a chance to share some of the teacher’s favorite treats with them. Please see the signup if you would like to contribute something to your child’s teacher(s). www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090C4AAEA72EA02-teacher 
Food Drive- Innocademy Classic, Innocademy Middle, and Las Huellas will be competing for the most donated food items per department, with the winning team having a “teacher surprise” during the assembly on Friday.

 Old Information (In Case You Missed It =)

Afternoon Dismissal….Please Help 

Each afternoon, as our kiddos wait for parents, you may notice it’s quite a challenge to have everyone corralled and ready for you all to scoop them up. When students are not where they are supposed to be  – – or not listening, it slows the process down, considerably. We have talked, quite a bit, at school and are asking for you to help reinforce these reminders at home as well.

The expectations for dismissal are as follows:

  • Everyone quickly exits the building as soon as they are released
  • Y5 – 2nd grade students sit on sidewalk and wait.
  • Older kiddos stand behind siblings or behind a younger friend.
  • Everyone should be on the sidewalk, not running around or playing on the playground. 

Thank you!

Afternoon Dismissal….Please Help 

Each afternoon, as our kiddos wait for parents, you may notice it’s quite a challenge to have everyone corralled and ready for you all to scoop them up. When students are not where they are supposed to be  – – or not listening, it slows the process down, considerably. We have talked, quite a bit, at school and are asking for you to help reinforce these reminders at home as well.

The expectations for dismissal are as follows:

  • Everyone quickly exits the building as soon as they are released
  • Y5 – 2nd grade students sit on sidewalk and wait.
  • Older kiddos stand behind siblings or behind a younger friend.
  • Everyone should be on the sidewalk, not running around or playing on the playground. 

Thank you!

Summer Technology Camp Opportunity for Girls

Camp Infinity is a week-long summer technology camp for girls entering 5th to 8th grade that introduces technology as fun and fulfilling and inspires the pursuit of technology education. MCWT Foundation created it to address the primary reasons girls lose interest in technology: confidence, social relevance, and social (peer) acceptance.

The camp:

  • Builds confidence and capability with hands-on technology activities such as robotics and computer game design
  • Demonstrates that technology is fun through the execution of engaging projects with other girls, with high school girls as counselors
  • Reinforces social relevance by featuring visitors from the local technology community that explain how their work is important to society at large

Founded in 2004, Camp Infinity helps spark girls’ interest in math and science, which tends to decrease during middle-school years. It separates the girls into two groups of 20 by grade to better cater to their technological experience. The fourth and fifth grade girls focus on website, app and video game design while the sixth and seventh graders focus on robotics and web and app design.

During lunch, professionals from leading area companies meet with the girls and encourage them to continue learning about technology. Access to role models like these reinforces the rewards and opportunities a career in technology can bring.

Date: Holland – July 16th thru July 19th

  • Lunch will be provided each day.
  • Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided each day.
  • All camp supplies will be provided.
  • Camp Infinity times are from 8:30am-3:30pm Monday – Thursday
  • Cost: $75/camper. Limited scholarships are available to reduce the cost to $25/camper.
