NOTE FROM OUR BOARD (AND PARENTS =)
Dear Students and Parents,
We will be celebrating our teachers and staff appreciation week May 8-12th. This year’s theme is “You Raise The Bar.” If you would like to contribute to the fun of showering our teachers and staff, feel free to donate via Venmo (QR code on the flyer attachment) or leave cash with our front desk staff. Please send or drop this off by Wednesday, May 3 so that we can gather supplies.
If you’re looking to purchase a gift for your teacher and would like some ideas, the following gift cards are super popular with the staff, Target, Teachers Pay Teachers.com, Amazon, and Thriftbooks.com. We hope you spend the week laughing and making memories with the awesome Innocademy Staff!

IMPORTANT REMINDER – EAST (TACO BELL =) PARKING LOT
As I shared earlier this year, our sweet friends at iCademy do need to dismiss their students at 3 pm each Tuesday and Thursday from that parking lot. Please be considerate of this and do not line up to pick up your Innocademy students until all of their little people have been reunited with their parents in that line. If you are parking in that pickup line, one of our staff members will kindly ask you to park your vehicle in the lot and rejoin the line once it has been cleared of iCademy pick-ups. Thank you for your cooperation and kindness.
