i4Learning January Newsletter

NOTE FROM MR. DZIEDZIC - Can you believe it's almost 2016 already?!? It's hard to believe it's the end of December with the temperatures in the 40's recently.  We haven't had to send any reminders about snow pants, boots and warm winter gear yet. With the new year brings a great time to reflect on all the great things 2015 brought us.  A lot has changed at our school over the past year: we wrote and had a charter contract approved, we welcomed 21 new students (4K-5), we've hosted a Gallery Night, Showcase Event, and much more! The forecast for 2016 appears to be just as exciting.  We hope you have a wonderful holiday break with family & friends!  We'll see you next year ;-)

THE REDUCE, RE-USE, RE-CYCLE and Re-Gift Event @ i4L - Thank you i4L Student Government for the creativity and effort in organizing our first "Re-gift" event!  The smiles and excitement of the students during this event was priceless! Thank you also to the parent volunteers who came to help wrap the students' gifts.
