School Updates from Incline Education Fund

May 10, 2023 | Member Submitted

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 from each of the schools:

Incline Elementary School

A huge thank you goes out to Kathleen McMinnis-Martin (of Glasses Wine Bar fame) and Milly Corneil (IES librarian) for all of their efforts to coordinate a successful Family Reading Night at Incline Elementary School last week.  Instilling a love of reading is incredibly important to future academic success. 

Incline Middle School

Washoe County School District Superintendent Dr. Susan Enfield and Board of Trustees representatives Beth Smith and Diane Nicolet came to Incline to continue the discussion about the potential consolidation of our schools.  It was another well attended meeting and audience members expressed their continued concerns with the possibility of closing Incline Middle School. The District assured the crowd that they were there to hear what the Incline community had to say and that “no decisions have been made yet”.  Frustrations were evident as the attendees were wanting answers but the District assured them that they are still collecting information. 

Stay tuned for updates and more opportunities to get involved in the process and make your voice heard. 

Upcoming events at IMS:  Poetry Night, Thursday, 5/18 at 5:30pm and the Spring Concert on Thursday 5/25 at 5:30.

Incline High School

As the school year starts winding down, IHS students are in the last week of AP testing. 

And mark your calendars: IHS will be hosting a Family Movie & Discussion night on Wednesday, March 24th. from 6-8pm. Ted Dintersmith’s “Most Likely to Succeed” will be shown and Dr. Courtney Wallpe will be moderating a discussion afterwards.  This is a good opportunity to  learn about the practices that IHS is adopting, including: Advisory, Internships and Exhibitions/Presentations of Learning.

And welcome to both Robin Rife, the new (additional) school counselor for 2023-24 and Arturo Fragoso, the new Family Graduation Advocate.  Both positions are hugely important for our Highlanders.

Lake Tahoe School

The annual fundraiser this year is a celebration of the Lake Tahoe School’s 35th anniversary! Get the details about the Celestial Ball.
