Oh Where, Oh Where did the Summer Go?

August 16, 2023 | Mary Danahey

It’s hard to believe, but Labor Day is right around the corner – which means it’s time for all of our local kids to go BACK TO SCHOOL!

Incline schools head back to classes next Monday, August 21st.  (If you are a parent, please make sure that you have registered your child(ren) and PAID YOUR FEES before Monday.)

Now is also the time to sign up for each school’s parent group (PTA, Jr Boosters, Boosters) so that you know what’s going on, get involved, and can stock up on some swag to show your Incline spirit. 

Congrats again to both Incline Elementary and High Schools for receiving their recent STEM School Designations from the Nevada Governor’s Office of Science, Innovation, and Technology.  Both schools will be expanding those programs and entering competitions throughout the year, so stay tuned!

Incline Middle School welcomes an exciting new addition, Principal Dan Lediard. (You can read more about him in next week’s SnapShot) and IMS Students can expect to see some exciting options in both the Wednesday Exploratory period and great after-school options like – robotics, sound lab, music and potentially, a mountain bike team!

Side note: Incline Education Fund will be working with IMS this year on their application for the same STEM School Designation so that Incline has the first – and only – K12 STEM School system in the state!

Construction has started at Incline High School for the remodel funded by the Dave and Cheryl Duffield Foundation. The new building will include collaborative spaces for students and teachers, a new JROTC facility, and a professional culinary kitchen. Keep reading the weekly SnapShot for updates.

And as always, if you have some time and care about education, volunteers are always needed for – reading buddies with the Read With Me program, substitute teachers, coaches, internships, mentors, and industry speakers. Contact Mary at maryd@inclineeducationfund.org for more information.
