Innotimes Journalism Elective

Mr. Kelly’s middle school journalism elective has been working hard on publishing a newspaper full of fun articles. Please see below for their first issue!

Devos Info…

Each morning a group of parents leads Devotions at Innocademy. If your child would like to participate, please make sure that they arrive to school right at 8:20. Devos parent volunteers will walk students inside as a whole group, lead them up the stairwell next to the elevator and guide them to the Devos space in our Learning To Be Fit upstairs space. Students arriving after 8:20am will need to participate on a different day.


PLEASE do not park in the parking spaces next to the building unless you have a handicapped sticker/pass. We have families who are in that situation and need to utilize those spots. Thank you.

Birthday Treats

Just a reminder that there has been a change in Birthday Treat requests for this year. Please take a peek at the information below from our Family Resource Guide:

Innocademy requests a food-free birthday treat to ensure the health and safety of all of our students. If you are planning to send a birthday item with your child (bubbles, pencils, erasers, stickers, etc.), 25 is a safe number to plan for. If a food item comes into the classroom for a birthday celebration, it will be sent back home with the student. This is a significant change for the ‘19-’20 school year and we appreciate your partnership.

Before School Reminders

8:20 -Supervised morning recess and Devos begin (Parent-led Devotions meet during the months of Sept-May)

8:25 – Last opportunity for any students attending Devos to head inside

8:35 – Morning recess students line up outside for the Pledge of Allegiance

8:40 – Student enter the building

8:45 – Class begins  (students arriving after 8:45 will be marked tardy. Please sign them in at the front desk.)

For the safety of our students, please remember that morning recess and optional devotions do not begin until 8:20 each morning. Because there is no outdoor recess coverage by Innocademy staff until that time, it is important that students do not arrive before 8:20 and remain under the supervision of a parent/guardian.  Thanks so much for your cooperation and concern for student safety.
