We are so happy for our 2023 Spelling Bee WINNER, Hayden and RUNNER UP, Ava! Congratulations! These two amazing kiddos will be representing Innocademy at the Regional Spelling Bee held in February.
Please make sure your child is at school, ready to begin by 8:45 a.m. every day. Should your child be absent, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let your child’s teacher know the reason for their absence so they can share any missing work. If your child has a medical appointment, we must receive a doctor’s note in order for the absence to be excused. Thank you for your support in ensuring your child learns and grows with us this year. Every day counts for their academic success!
STUDENT COUNT DAY – FEB 8th
Like each school day, please make sure your child is on time and attending school for the entire day on Wednesday, February 8th. This is the day that all public schools across the State of Michigan must report their student attendance numbers in order to receive per-pupil funding. Thank you for your help in making certain that every student is counted.

POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTIONS & SUPPORTS (PBIS) PARENT UPDATE
New Year & New Habits:
Happy New Year! The New Year is known as a great time for new routines and goal setting. As we continue to focus on PBIS goals and initiatives at school, I encourage you to review this great tool on ways to set easy routines, habits, and expectations at home. It’s a great activity to do as a family.
Donations & Drawings:
We continue to need more treats and prizes in the classrooms. Please consider donating prizes for the drawings that occur each week. If you’d like to directly donate to your child’s classroom-you may directly message your child’s teacher for items needed for their classroom or ask your student for age-appropriate ideas for their classrooms. If you wish to donate to items to stock the prize boxes of any classroom/areas of need-that would be greatly appreciated-Middle School is currently a higher area of need! Items can be delivered to the classroom or front desk at any time.
Ideas of what to donate (new items & NO NUTS):
- · movie box candy
- · school supplies-pencils, pens, erasers, markers, etc.
- · puzzles, card games
- · water bottle stickers
- · books (gently used okay)/activity books
- · keychains
- · Chapstick, coin purses, fidget spinners
Middle School Drawings:
We are looking for parent volunteers to help with drawings for Middle School rewards on Friday afternoons. The time can be flexible. The tasks would include setting up the prizes, supervising students while they choose their prize and cleaning up the prizes. There will be other staff members nearby if support is needed. This is a great opportunity to celebrate your student(s). Please contact Kristin Frederick (email@example.com) if you’re interested in volunteering.
