The Latest Incline School News
October 24, 2023 | Mary Danahey
It may be hard to believe, but we are already finishing up the first semester of school!
This Friday is Nevada Day, so there is NO School on 10/27. Enjoy the three-day weekend.
It always seems as if there is non-stop activity from Halloween to New Year’s, so remember to check here (and your school calendars) for up-to-date info on activities and events.
Here are a few exciting announcements and the breakdown for this coming week.
Incline Elementary School
IES hosted their annual Jog-A-Thon and successfully raised ~$25,000 to fund a P.E. teacher for the year. Donations are still being accepted here: IES PTA Jog A Thon or by bringing a check to the front office.
IES is hosting an “author visit” with the distinguished novelist, Suzanne Morgan Williams. She will be providing a writing workshop series for the 4th and 5th graders on October 25th, 26th and Nov 7th & 8th. This enrichment program is being funded by the Incline Education Fund through a grant by the Nevada Arts Council.
And put the next PTA meeting on your calendar: it is on 11/13 at 4:00 in the Teacher’s Lounge.
Incline Middle School
The Halloween Dance is HERE! Thursday, Oct 26th from 6-8pm. All middle school kids are invited. Parents can still volunteer to help here: Halloween Dance Help
IMS is hosting their second Trash to Treasure event next weekend, 11/4. From 10-2.
The Treasure to Treasure project received a grant from the Tahoe Fund to clean up our area of the Tahoe basin and design a project that will ultimately help inform the wider community about the fragility of our environment.
All of Incline Village is invited to clean up their own neighborhood or one of the neglected or overlooked areas where trash accumulates.
Incline Middle School will be the “home base” for the event. You can pick up any necessary trash pick-up supplies and you can bring your haul back to IMS for disposal.
All ‘resuable’ items collected will be sorted out and ‘repurposed’ into both small and large art project(s) that will eventually be displayed around town.
Additionally, our local partner in education, Incline Education Fund, will be supplying food and drinks for participants.
We hope to see you there!
