      We cannot get a break with the weather and driving conditions lately. It’s tricky with an island that has such a wide range of conditions. Thursday posed a challenging decision regarding a snow day. Consultation with bus drivers, island staff, and satellite weather maps, all influence the final decision with safety being the bottom line. 

     The weeks continue to have noteworthy highlights. For instance, English teacher Heather Moore, from Scotland, spent the day visiting Ms. Kristen’s classroom, chatting with students about Scotland and learning about ICS.  We are happy to explore new ideas and experiences with our students by hosting guests from abroad.

     Grades four and five spent a day at the Camden Snow Bowl learning how to ski and snowboard. It was great fun and a wonderful excursion for those young Mainers. Ms. Betha and Ms. Renee apparently had a wonderful time too. 

     We welcome the addition of a new ICS family member. ICS. librarian, Tammy, delivered a baby boy earlier this week! Mother and baby are doing well. We are anxiously awaiting to hear his name. Congratulations to Tammy and Nate! 

     Valentine’s Day was Friday and a half day of school. As we wrapped up another week, we take this opportunity to wish students and staff a restful and rejuvenating February break.
