Parent Community Link

Welcome to the PCL!

The Parent Community Link’s mission is to create a strong sense of community, to raise the level of parent involvement and to support students and teachers in delivering a quality education program.

We seek to accomplish this mission by:

  • Enhancing two-way communication between the school and parents. 
  • Increasing community involvement that supports the ICS mission and vision.
  • Arranging activities and special events that support and enhance the sense of community.
  • Supporting students and school projects with fundraising through PCL activities.

How can you get involved?

The PCL is currently looking for parent feedback on what you would like from your PCL in the 2019-2020 school year. Please share your feedback here and raise your hand to get involved with your PCL. Whether you just want to attend PCL events or you want to volunteer to help run events and activities that support our community, we appreciate it all. Survey HERE
