Parents

Parent Resources

Our parents are an integral part of their children’s education. We know how important it is for you to stay up-to-date and in-the-know regarding your child’s endeavors inside and outside of the classroom. See below for resources to help you do just that!

Please take a peek at our resource guide to understand all of the daily ins and outs of life at Innocademy.

Free/Reduced Lunch

Did you know your family could be eligible for Free/Reduced lunch? If you have qualified in the past, you do still need to fill out a form in order to receive these services again this year. It’s SUPER easy to find out if your family qualifies. Just go to lunchapp.com and fill out the information. It’s quick and confidential! You will find Innocademy Zeeland listed under the schools for Holland Christian.

Las Huellas Resources

Many of our families (both Spanish-speaking and not) are always looking for ways to support their child’s language learning at home! Check out this list of resources filled with fun songs, videos, and even online books to keep your kiddos learning and having fun in their second language!

Transportation

Innocademy does not provide transportation. If you have a transportation issue or are looking to carpool with fellow Innocademy families, feel free to join our private Innocademy Parents Facebook Page to discuss transportation possibilities.

Safety & Security

Our students’ safety is a top priority, and essential to creating a productive, calm school environment. For everyone’s safety, our doors are locked each day. If you are volunteering at Innocademy for any length of time, please make certain you sign the clipboard at the reception area. Thanks for your help! You are MORE than welcome to come have lunch or visit your child at school, we just ask that before doing so you sign in and get a visitor badge.

Volunteering

Families are encouraged to share their gifts, talents, and personal resources to enhance our students’ learning experience. There is no volunteer requirement for our families, but we are always in need of support , whether in your child’s specific classroom, or with whole-school projects. InnoRoots is our volunteer organization at Innocademy. Each family completes a survey listing their gifts and talents so that we can best match you and your valuable offerings to the projects, activities and teams that are a critical part of what we can offer to students.

Please contact Ms. Gabrielle at gabrielle.kosters@innocademy.com or Jenna Fisher with questions at jennabekah77@gmail.com or 419-350-5707. Each family should have a completed background check on file. It is imperative that we have this information from each of our families. The background information form must be on file for anyone wishing to volunteer or visit in any capacity during school activities. This includes field trips and/or helping with activities during the school day.

After-School Enrichment

After-school enrichment is provided for students to explore new interests outside of school or for working parents in need of safe, reliable, after-school childcare. After-School Enrichment is offered Monday-Friday from 3:30pm-5:30pm.

Any questions about After-School Enrichment please reach out to Grant Lancaster at grant.lancaster@innocademy.com. To sign-up for After-School Enrichment, click the link below.

Stewardship Opportunities

Each day we are introduced to worthy organizations and projects that are in need of volunteers. Understanding that we, as a school, are unable to fulfill all requests we wanted to pass along the opportunities to our families. Therefore, if your family would like to participate in any of the opportunities listed below, please contact that organization directly. As always thank you for your generosity and willingness to help others.
