Good evening everyone,
As we enter this 4th week of the new semester, the students have transitioned successfully into school routines and are working hard. Thank you for supporting them in their curricular and extracurricular endeavors. Your presence and involvement have a profound impact, and we thank you for all that you do, for your students, for the music program, and for Inderkum.
We have exactly 77 school days left in this school year. Just 77. They will be packed with learning and activities. The students will need our support to maintain focus, to exercise good time management, and to make self-care a priority. Please encourage them to reach out for help whenever needed. Inderkum's staff and all involved in the music program are ready and willing to assist the students in every way possible. Again, thank you.
Here are your announcements:
Bingo, bingo, bingo! Sunday bingo sessions are in need of your help. Please consider joining us. We will show you everything you need to know. No experience is necessary! The Sign-up Genius is a live document that is always available for your use. Please sign up for a shift today. It's a lot of fun! Thank you so much!
Paint Night is coming soon. Please join us on Saturday, February 9th at 6:30 p.m. at Just For Fun Art. I have included the link for sign-ups, as this is the only way to reserve a spot at the event. The theme of the painting is included on the link.
