      In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, ICS was closed Monday. Despite the short week, we continued our energetic pace and accomplished quite a bit. 

     Congratulations to Ellura, Harper, and Skye on acceptance in the 2020 District 3 Sixth Grade Honors Chorus! This is a festival which includes some of the best sixth grade singers from about 30 schools from Freeport to Augusta to Lincolnville on a map. Our students show a strong appreciation for the arts. They eagerly take part, whether carving soapstone in Ms. Casey’s Art studio, performing in our annual musical, or singing in a community concert, K-12 students thrive in our well-rounded curriculum. It might have something to do with our busy visiting artist schedule and talented teachers. Just this week, Ms. Jen’s 3-4 class, hosted Scot Cannon. Scot is a local musician and gifted educator, specializing in building self-esteem and anti-bullying. He wrote songs with students, played the banjo, and sang witht them. 

     High School Music students rounded out the week by attending the Maine Music Educators Association High School Honors festival. We are looking forward to hearing about their experience. 

      Students maintain busy schedules at ICS. Just this morning, our Varsity Boys Basketball team played AR Gould at home. A grueling competition that ended with a loss of 35-36. It was a terrific display of endurance and skill. Our young team held their own and made the crowd proud to cheer them on. Go Eagles!
