Dear IJP Families,
As spring gradually approaches, we will be conducting the last few safety drills of the year. Every year, all schools are required to drill the students and staff in fire, intruder, bus, and tornado emergency procedures. Our tornado drill will be held Tuesday, March 6th, with another fire drill and intruder drill following in the next two months. Please continue to have conversations with your child about the importance of being prepared and remaining silent during a drill.
As we enter in to the 3rd Trimester of the school year, we are truly living in the current school year with all the upcoming spring events and in the next school year with planning and scheduling.
The 2nd Trimester ends today! Report cards are scheduled to go home on March 2nd. Report cards are not released to families with any delinquent balances or fees and will be held in the School Office. If you are unsure of monies owed, please contact Mrs. Dull in the office.
We have quite the collection of winter hats, gloves, glasses and uniform items in the Lost and Found. If your student is missing their fleece or other items, please come and check the Lost and Found table in the cafeteria.
We will again be providing vision and hearing screenings at IJP on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, March 21st through the 23rd. These screenings will be given for the state mandated grades. The mandated grades include the following:
Pre-K - vision and hearing
K - vision and hearing
1st - hearing
2nd - vision and hearing
3rd - hearing
8th - vision
We will be taking parent and teacher referrals for other grade levels. If you would like to have your child screened and he/she is not in the mandated grade, please let Sharon Crocilla, the school nurse, know so they can be included in the screening. Special note to kindergarten parents: The vision screening will not be done for students who had the eye examination completed for kindergarten requirements.
8th Grade Graduation Picture Retakes are Wednesday, March 7th. If you were absent or need to retake a picture you will need to bring in your first set of proofs.
Spring Pictures are right around the corner. On March 7th, PreK through 7th grade will take pictures that will include a sibling option as well. Flyers were sent home!
The 2018-19 Registration Fee for next school year is due by Thursday, March 15th. Tuition information and registration forms were sent home prior to Christmas with the students. It is vital to the planning of personnel and class size to have an accurate picture for next year. If you are unsure about returning or are moving, please let us know as well.
The IJP Student Council is holding an optional Easter Decorating Contest for all students. DUE DATE: Wednesday, February 28th. See link for more details.
Daddy-Daughter Dance Registration is in full swing! The dance will be held on Friday, March 9th at Idlewild Country Club. Pre-registration is required. The registration deadline is March 1st. Please get your reservations in as soon as possible for this amazing event. (LINK)
