Read Across America
You’re never too old, too wacky, or too wild. To pick up a book and read with a child. You’re never too busy, too cool, or too hot, to pick up a book and share what you’ve got. At ICS, we’re gathering around, picking up books and passing them around. This week, ICS will Read Across America with an exciting week of activities centered around reading! For more information on our exciting week, please click here.
Cares Across America
ICS is partnering with Operation Jersey Cares to provide much needed supplies for the men and women of our armed forces. From March 1 – 5, we will be collecting a variety of goods that will be donated to OJC and sent over to the members of our military serving overseas. For more information, please click here. Thank you to the 7th graders for your service.
