IACS Newsletter for the week ending June 22, 2018

Dear IACS Community,

Another school year has come and gone and even though only been two days since school ended, the halls already feel empty without the hustle and bustle of the students. Here at IACS we are taking advantage of the empty halls to get to work on some projects that are better suited to a nearly empty building. The restoration of the front staircase has begun, take a look at the photos below to see how it’s coming along.

This project has been partially funded with donations made by IACS families to our Annual Giving Campaign. With our fiscal year ending on June 30th, I’d like to invite you to make a donation (of any size) to help offset this significant cost for our school. Donations may be made online here. Does your employer match charitable donations? You may be able to double your impact with a company match. Contact us if we can help with this.

With only one week left in our fiscal year, please consider making a tax deductible donation today.

We are grateful for your help and hope that the summer offers a more relaxed pace for you and your family to do what you enjoy most.

Happy Summer!

    End of Year BBQ – Thank You!

    Thank you to the small army of IACS parents who fed over 800 students and staff at our end of year BBQ on the last day of school. This event is a wonderful way to close out the year and we’re grateful to IACA, Cindi Hevner and her volunteers for making it happen.

    2018-2019 Transportation News:

    By now all families should have received an email for the option to sign up for carpooling, and a letter mailed home with information about busing. If you have not received this information please contact Marybeth Bush, or 978-649-0432 ext 3218.

    The out of town Christianson buses are filling up so if you are interested in using that transportation option do not delay in signing up.


    THANK YOU TO ALL who’ve stepped up this year and gotten involved with IACA and our many events. We hope you found your participation enriching and memorable! Volunteers truly are the lifeblood of our organization.
