Local School Updates

December 12, 2022 | Mary Danahey

Hi I’m Mary with the Incline Education Fund, a local nonprofit that support students, educators and parents here in Incline. Through our programming, advocacy and fundraising, IEF helps to ensure academic achievement and skill development across generations of Incline students. We have some exciting updates to share about each of the schools:

Incline Elementary School
IES students have been busy putting their STEAM skills to work this holiday season!
For the past couple of weeks, students have been working on a school-wide project. Students have been reading books about parades and floats and then using their creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration skills to design their own floats and a parade route. Then they programmed their robots to “carry their floats” through the halls of IES. The holiday parade is scheduled for December 22 at 10:00.

Incline Middle School
And not to be outdone, Incline Middle School will be showing off their STEM skills this holiday season as well.
Even though Nevada Jane’s will be closed until 12/21, head over their porch to check out IMS’s holiday light display. The 7th & 8th graders created all of the displays, chose the songs, coded the light sequences and programmed the 13-minute show. There are 5 sequences and the show will run daily from 5pm-9pm. Additionally, they are entering the Deck the Halls Lighting Contest!
A huge thank you to Terry Barberry and Incline Education Fund for supporting this project.

Incline High School
