Friday, September 24th is an early release day for students. Dismissal will be at noon.
Thank you for your continued efforts to keep students learning in person by complying with the Ottawa County Mask Order issued a couple of weeks, ago.
Some folks have had questions on what constitutes an acceptable face covering. Please see the information, below, from the Ottawa County Health Department website regarding masks.
Our front desk is happy to help by supplying a paper or cloth mask to anyone in need.
Here at Inno, as a part of our PBIS, we ask our students to be respectful, responsible, safe and resilient. We acknowledge students when they are respectful, responsible, safe or resilient via a ticket. Below you will find what those tickets look like. We are happy to share that in the first month of school we (the entire school Y5 through 8th grade) were able to reach our goal of 1,000 acknowledgments!! Students in both middle school and elementary were given three choices to pick from to celebrate on our half day next week Friday, September 24. *Please note: elementary students have chosen to celebrate by watching a movie and wearing their PJs while middle school students are working on making a choice. Thank you for your support at home!!
SCHOOL PICTURE REMINDER – NEXT WEEK TUESDAY AND/OR THURSDAY!
Christy Pacanowski of Embolden Studio has graciously agreed to take our Innocademy School Pictures again this year! If you are not familiar with Christy’s work, you can visit her website, HERE. She does a great job capturing the personality of each kiddo.
Attached to this email is a copy of the picture order form and pricing information. It is not required for you to place an order with Christy. Please do, however, fill out the form even if you do not wish to purchase pictures as each kiddo will have his/her picture taken for the yearbook. Hard copies of the forms should have already been sent home with your kiddos this week.
If you have a sibling that is not a current Inno student and you would like their picture taken, please fill out the order form for them and plan to visit campus during lunch time on Thursday, September 30th.

8 Tips to Boost Mental Health and Wellness for Students
- Eat Healthy. Attaining a healthy dietcomes with a variety of benefits, such as a boost in your mood and energy level, improved memory, and better overall brain function.
- Get Plenty of Sleep. A lack of sleep may have you feeling tired, unfocused, and overwhelmed.
- Be Active. Regular exercise, such as walking, jogging, cycling, and swimming has been proven to reducesymptoms of anxiety and depression, and improve mood and blood circulation.
- Build a Strong Social Support Network. Reaching out to others can help you overcome feelings of isolation.
- Engage in Hobbies. Whether you enjoypainting, hiking, running, reading a book, or fishing, take time to step away from the demands of your busy life and focus on a hobby or activity you enjoy.
- Disconnect from Negativity. When we are stressed out, we often engage in negative behaviors such as eating too uch, too much screen time, and other negative habits.
- Reward Yourself. Recognizing your value and worth, reaching your goals, and accomplishing difficult tasksare just a few things that prove you are doing a good job.
- Be Grateful. When you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed, it can be difficult to feel gratitude. Keep a gratitude journal, and focus on the positives in your life. People who regularly express gratitude for the positives in their lives are shown to be happier overall, leading to lower rates of stress and depression.
