Important Notices for All Parents

New ICS Makerspace & Robotics Lab: Open House Saturday, 3 September

Thanks to the success of last year's Annual Giving campaign, a new Makerspace and Robotics Lab has opened in room S021 in the secondary wing. This lab will allow students to build and learn through different ways, both within classes and as part of their after school activities. The Robotics Lab is equipped with robotics equipment suitable for students in all grades at ICS, allowing students to build and program robots, learning valuable skills and methods of thinking. The Makerspace is equipped with 3D printers and a 3D scanner for fabricating models, spare parts, or creative designs. There is also a laser cutter and a vinyl cutter for 2D fabrication in various media.

We are welcoming parents and students to come explore the space on Saturday, 3 September, from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM (noon). Students and teachers will be there to show off projects, explain equipment and help visitors to try out some projects and equipment.

ICS Community Choir (for adults and high school students)

Our ICS community choir will be meeting on Mondays from 5:30 - 6:30 PM starting on 5 September. New members are welcome! We are looking forward to another year of music making together!

Piano Player Needed!

The choir room is looking for a part-time piano player to accompany choir classes while our beloved accompanist is on maternity leave until October 2016. Please contact Ms. Theresa Davis if you are interested and willing to participate in classes until then. Classes are every other day.
