April Newsletter

Here we are rolling into April already! I hope that you all had a great spring break and had an opportunity to enjoy some of the nice weather. We have a busy month happening with the i4L Plant Sale, Spaghetti Dinner & Gallery Night, PD/Strategic Planning and the Forward Exam Testing.

Please share this video with friends, family & parents who live outside of the Kewaskum School District and may have children grades 4k- 5th interested in what i4Learning Community School has to offer - multi-age, project-based learning.

Our Plant Sale Fundraiser is a way to purchase your annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, planters and vegetables! There are several new annuals and perennials to chose from this year. Our PTO relies on this fundraiser to be a success...it is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year! If you've never ordered from us before, please consider doing so. Every year we have more and more families order from us because it's such a beautiful and practical fundraiser...and our kids benefit!! Want to order online? Click Here

The Forward Exam is the state assessment being used this year and will include grades 3-5.  Classroom teachers will share out the schedule next week.  They will do some prep work in class to familiarize the students with the online assessment system.  Please help us emphasize how important it is for students to put forth their best effort on this assessment.

Thursday April 21 will be the Spaghetti Dinner & the i4L Student Gallery Night.  In the past the dinner was a 5th grade sponsored fundraising event. Last year we moved to a whole school event and will continue that this year. Click here to view flyer coming home with your student today or order your tickets online!
