placed in the boxtop collection box by Tuesday at 3pm to be entered in the weekly drawing. Remember

every boxtop earns our school money!!! Your boxtop can make a difference!! First Drawing will be 12/5!!

IACS Library:  We are accepting used book donations! We will sort through and keep what we can use
and put the rest into our brand new GOT BOOKS container. The container is a fundraiser for the Library
and with it; we hope to raise enough to purchase more MP3 Players for audiobooks that students can

check out from the Library. Any early elementary or books that you sense are not appropriate for either
the Middle or High School section of our library, can be dropped directly into the bin which is located
on the High School side, next to the school. The bin accepts used books, CDs, DVDs & records. Got

Books pays us for these donations! Please note that the librarian is not able to access the bin,
so if your intention is to donate books to the school, please be sure to bring the books to the
library. If you have any questions, please contact Heather Landis at (978) 649-0432 ext.: 1208 or email:

hlandis@innovationcharter.org Thank you!
