There is a super fun opportunity coming our way to represent IES and who we are to the community of Holland, the surrounding area, and visitors. 

On May 12th Tulip Time holds a parade to showcase kids and schools from around the community. This parade is called a Kinderparade. As Innocademy, iCademy and Precademy, we have signed up to participate in this parade to show off our students and the work we do here at IES. 

HUGE THANKS to Ms. Renee for coordinating this adventure for us! She is looking for volunteers available on May 12th starting at about 1 pm to line up for the parade and we should be done by 3 pm – ish.

Please note…Per Tulip Time Parade Official Rules, all adults marching in the parade do need to be in dutch costume.

Parents marching with us will need to have a volunteer background check on file or complete the one, below and also be in dutch costume. Students marching do not need a dutch costume (they may absolutely wear one if they have it!) instead, they will receive a t-shirt with our theme. Students in Young 5s and Kindergarten must have an adult accompany them if they are participating. Students in 1st grade and above may participate without an adult. 

Please SIGN UP, HERE by APRIL 10TH if you or your child wish to participate.

Please adjust your calendars. The NEW date for the 5K will be on MAY 20TH. If you have a daughter participating, please watch your email as there will be many more details to follow.
