REMINDER – Innocademy Extravaganza Details from Ms. Hillary

It’s Showtime! I am pleased to share with you our plans for the Innocademy Extravaganza. The performance will be held on Tuesday, December 12, at 7 p.m. at Community Reformed Church in Zeeland (10376 Felch St, Zeeland, MI 49464).  As in years past, we will hold our dress rehearsal at the church during the afternoon. All students will be bussed to the Community Reformed via Zeeland bussing and should be picked up there by parents promptly at 3:30 p.m.   

Doors will open for the evening performance at 6:45 p.m. Students should proceed to the gym between 6:45-6:50 to meet their teacher and line up. Family and friends may find seats in the sanctuary to view pictures and student artwork that will be digitally set to music. If you are a parent of a youngest friend in Ms. Kerri, Ms. Kayleigh, Ms. Natalia, or Ms. Ruth’s classroom, please meet your child on stage right AFTER their performance to take them back to sit with you for the remainder of the program.  

This program will feature the musical learning of ALL the Innocademy students in grades Young Fives – 8th. The students have been working very hard to prepare their performances for you!

Lastly, don’t forget that this is a special occasion so please dress your best and leave tennis shoes and jeans at home! 

We are looking forward to sharing a wonderful evening of music and learning with you! If you have any questions regarding the Innocademy Extravaganza, please feel free to contact Ms. Hillary at or Ms. Melissa at

Thank you!

December Ottawa County Food Pantry Calendar

FREE Monthly STEM Workshops – December Info!

The program is called Exploring Engineering and STEM and is for tweens 8-12years old. Each month we focus on a different career area of STEM. One or more professionals will share what they do for a career with the kids and how they got into it, plus answer questions. Then kids do a hands-on activity related to the career area. The program meets once a month on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 PM, at the North Branch of Herrick District Library located at 155 Riley Street in Holland. No need to sign up ahead of time, simply show up if you would like to attend.

REMINDER – “Give A Gift” Capstone Fundraiser

For our students in grades 3rd – 8th we are offering a fundraising opportunity this Christmas Season. Please see the INFORMATION FLYER HERE for more details and how your student can participate!

December Lunch Menu


Because we have students and staff with life-threatening allergies to peanuts and tree nuts it’s incredibly important that we are vigilant about remaining a completely nut-free campus.

You might be saying, “Well, I know that no one in my child’s class has an allergy so I’m okay sending a bag of trail mix as a snack.” Does your child ever use the community lunchroom? restroom? drinking fountain? Do they ever open a door to exit or enter the building or internal areas? Guessing that would be a “Yes.” for all of our students each day. Should your child have any nut residue or nut butter smear on their hands, they can leave traces on any table, door, or area they touch. For some students and staff, unknowingly touching that area and then touching their mouth, eyes or nose is enough to send them into anaphylactic shock, closing their airway and necessitating immediate life-saving medical attention.
