Composting at I-LES

compostMany of you who have traveled by the south end of the building have asked what is the new building next to the end of the cafeteria? The new building with the green metal roof is a composting shed. Mr. Josh Hill deserves a big round of applause for donating his time and energy to build the composting shed.
Every year millions of pounds of food waste are deposited in landfills and other waste facilities. Composting is a natural process that can significantly reduce food waste. We will be taking vegetable, fruit, and green plant waste generated at the school and mixing it with carbon matter (wood chips) in our new composting facility.

Bus Reminders

busStudents who wish to ride a different bus or who need to get off at a different stop than they normally do must have a note from home. Not only does this ease confusion during dismissal, but it also makes it clear for the bus drivers. Drivers are instructed not to drop a child off at a different location unless they have written permission to do so from the school. Also, the bus company would like to remind parents and students that items brought on the bus should be able to fit comfortably on a child’s lap. Items that are large or can be unsafe (snowboards, skateboards, large projects, skis, baseball bats, bouquet of balloons, etc.) are not allowed to be brought onto the bus.

Morning Arrival

Students may enter the building at 8:25 a.m. and, as always, will be considered late if they enter after 8:40 a.m. Parents are asked to drop their child(ren) off at 8:25 a.m. in the front of the school or at the playground gate at the primary end of the building. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CAR UNATTENDED ALONG THE SIDEWALK; THAT AREA IS FOR DROP-OFFS ONLY. If you need to leave your car to enter the building, please park in a designated parking space.
Please note: In the morning, the following doors will be used for entry:
1. The main office door: for parents and students.
2. The multi-purpose room doors: for students only.
3. Primary end door by pre-school: for students only.
4. 4th and 6th grade playground doors: for bus students only.
Parents who wish to enter the building at arrival time must use the main office door and be “buzzed in”.

Afternoon Dismissal

All students who are being picked up or who are walking home will be brought outside by I-LES faculty members.
Afternoon Pick Up Locations:
* PK-1 Students: Staff members will accompany students and will exit the building through the primary doors closest to the main road. Parents may wait for their child outside the gate. Please do not come onto the playground. Also, be mindful of the busses that will be coming down the hill at 3:00 p.m. to pick up the majority of our students. If possible, give them the right of way so they can get around the building.
* Grades 2-3 Students: Staff members will accompany the students and exit the building through the multi-purpose room doors. Parents may wait for their child on the sidewalk outside the multi-purpose room in the front of the building.

Summer Greenhouse News

Summer News from the Living Classroom!

The greenhouse has been a huge success this summer, thanks to seven green-thumb families and five Summer BLAST Classrooms!  With their hard work, sunflowers are hitting the CEILING, pole beans are climbing up the walls, tomatoes are flourishing, and carrots are being crunched!  Outside, Morning Glories are climbing up the teepee, Mrs. Bannon's "butterfly garden" is buzzing with insects and blooming with beautiful flowers, and more tomatoes are ripening along with gym wall in front of a row of sunflowers.  We look forward to planting some fall crops with students soon!  Happy Summer everyone!
