March is here and looks to be roaring in like a lion! At least that means good news for the end of the month, right?!?! We've had a lot of exciting things going on this past month and coming up. We just recently wrapped up our first segment of our school wide healthy living project. Students worked in K-5 teams to learn about nutrition. We will continue this project later this month with a focus on being active and exercise. The project will wrap up with talking about overall well-being. Later this month we will be releasing a new promotional video highlighting our school. We are very excited to see the finished product and will share out as soon as we are able to. Also, as you probably know we have an Informational/Open House Event coming up on March 10, 6:00-7:00pm. If you know of any families who might benefit from having their child enrolled at i4Learning Community School please extend an invitation to them. We've also listed the event on our Facebook page and would appreciate your "Like" or "Share" :-)
