November Newsletter

We participated in the Midwest Great Apple Crunch on October 22.

We participated in the Midwest Great Apple Crunch on October 22.

Principal's Message: Thank you to everyone who came out for the PTO Halloween Bash!!  It appeared everyone had a great time and the children ...and parents :-) looked great in their costumes. A special thanks to the parents who helped plan the event. It's hard to believe it's November and the snow will be here before we know it.  Be sure to turn your clocks back for the "fall back" daylights savings time. 
Conferences will be taking place on Thursday night of the next two weeks. These conferences are usually most beneficial when the student attends with the parent and everyone hears the same message. If for some reason you are able to make these scheduled conference, please be sure to communicate with the teachers.
Over the next few weeks staff members and students will be preparing for our first Showcase Event, Tuesday November 17.  We're very excited for the students to share the things they have been learning through their projects this year.  The event will be from 5:30-6:30 and we are asking that all students attend to share their projects with those in attendance.  We will also be sending out invitations to area businesses to come learn more about i4Learning and learn how they can support and/or partner with us.  If you know of a business which may be interested in partnering or supporting our school, please provide their contact information here. We will send them a sponsorship letter and information.
Early next week you will be notified of an online parent survey.  This survey will be similar to the survey that was administered last year.  We greatly appreciate you taking the time to participate in the survey to help us continue to grow as educators.

PTO News & Events- PTO agendas and minutes will be posted on this website under the "About" tab. Check the "Events" tab for different upcoming PTO events and meetings. "Like" the i4Learning PTO here. Next PTO meeting will be held on November 17 at 6:30 p.m. (following the Showcase Event).

Address Changes—Have you moved recently? If so, please ensure i4Learning has been informed. You can update your address information using Skyward Family Access or by contacting the office with the new address information. Moves outside of the Kewaskum district do not prohibit your child from completing the current school year in our district. However, they do necessitate an additional form to be completed and the office will be able to assist you with that.

Family Changes—If you have had a change in your family which may affect one parent's contact information, please contact the office to update this information.
