THANK YOU MS. KELLI & WELCOME MS. JESSENIA
Words cannot express our appreciation to Ms. Kelli for all she has given to our Innocademy Community these last 15 years. As an original Inno team member, Kelli has enjoyed learning, growing and traveling alongside hundreds of kids, families, and staff. While we will miss her dearly, we are thrilled for her as she embarks on a new adventure helping coach teachers and districts throughout Allegan County.
As we move into this new season we feel so incredibly grateful and excited to welcome Ms. Jessenia into the role of our school lead at Innocademy! You will likely recognize Jessenia from her many years of teaching students and leading our Las Huellas program.
IMPORTANT PARKING LOT TWEAK
Thanks for your continued patience as we navigate traffic flow into and out of our new parking lots. As we shared earlier this week, if you have a student who is in the classic program AND the Las Huellas program, on Monday, please begin doing drop off and pick up only in the East parking lot (across from Taco Bell =).
We will continue to monitor traffic back ups and flow and work to even out the lines at the end of the day.
If you have someone new to pick up at dismissal time, please always feel free to share THIS VIDEO that includes the map.
SEPTEMBER LUNCH MENU
Holland Christian has moved to a “grab and go” bag style of breakfast that students may enjoy outside during these nice summer/fall days and in the lobby during inclement weather and through the winter. As a reminder, breakfast is $1.75 for students. Free/reduced lunch applies to breakfast as well.
Calling all Artists! Zeeland Board of Public Works is inviting all students 1st-4th grade to enter in a coloring contest.The winner will win a $50 Amazon gift card and be featured in Currents Magazine! Entries need to be submitted by September 23rd. Students 1st-4th will be spending this week’s art class time working on their coloring page, however, the school cannot submit student artwork, as parents need to sign a permission slip. Parents: if your child wants to enter their coloring page, please click on the link below to print out the parent permission slip and mail it in along with your student’s coloring page.
If anyone is unable to print out the parent permission slip, Ms. Emily will have some available for student’s to pick up. Please let your teacher know.
ARE YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW IN NEED?
Christian Brothers Automotive will host our 7th annual Free Oil Change for Single Mothers (or those in need) on Saturday, September 24 from 8:00AM-2:00PM.
You can sign up someone up by appointment or schedule them at the following Link
Our mission is to provide free oil changes to single mothers in need and we have expanded to single fathers, widows and other folks in need of a helping hand. We feel privileged to spend this day serving and ministering to families within our community, and we hope to serve over 120 families. . In addition, we will provide free t-shirts, and car washes and we have other volunteers as well.
We know that for some, the ability to do regular maintenance on a vehicle is difficult or even impossible. We also know everyone deserves a peace of mind and comfort that comes with knowing that families are safe in their vehicle. This event is an opportunity to positively impact the lives of some deserving people in our community-people who could use a blessing- and our hope is to provide that. You may know people in need and we encourage you to share this link and information with them or sign the person up yourself.
This is by appointment only. To register a friend or family member, click here
As a bonus, we will be doing over $10,000 in car repairs on various vehicles when we find a car that is in need of repair during the oil change.
TITLE 1 AND INTERVENTION
Title I is a federal aid program for elementary, middle, and high schools. Title I money is given to school districts based on the number of low-income families in each district. Each district uses its Title I money for extra educational services for children most in need of educational help. The focus of the Title I program is on helping all students meet the same high standards expected of all children, building capacity for parent involvement, and providing professional development for building staff. We use the Title funding to provide academic intervention services. (Please CLICK HERE to learn more about our Title and Intervention Program.)
