The Compass, 1/11/20

     We’ve enjoyed a great deal of initiative throughout the school this week.  Students and staff pass the weeks with an energetic pace that, at times, is dizzying. Seniors are receiving acceptance letters from colleges and mid-year exams are right around the corner. 

     Sandy and David Perloff graced ICS with a visit this week. We appreciate their continued funding and collaboration. 3-D printers, aquaponics, and aeroponics are just a few examples of their support in action and directly in the hands of students. 

        Our Pathways Team has been enjoying meeting with students and their families lately. Pathways has become the cornerstone of our middle and high school students’ experience at ICS. It is a joy to have their families on campus for their individual meetings. 

     Head of School spent time at the Mid-Coast School of Technology attending a joint meeting of leaders from the tech center and surrounding islands. The Island Institute hosted and organized the day with a focus on shared local resources and credential opportunities for our students. Simultaneously, Dean of Students was in Boston, attending a conference hosted by the Barr Foundation. She has been preparing to launch our Portrait of a Graduate initiative previously mentioned in last week’s Compass. 

     This week we take time to recognize the recipient of this month’s Fly High Award, Grace Burns. Grace embodies the values of ICS and well deserves the recognition. Congratulations!

     As always, thank you for your support and for reading our weekly Compass.
