Good evening everyone,
Wow! What a weekend for the students! The Homecoming game on Friday night, the Franklin Band Review on Saturday in Elk Grove, and the Homecoming dance on Saturday night at Inderkum kept the kids moving! Although the students sure did not rest much this weekend (but they had a great time!), I hope you are all ready for another week.
Here are your announcements:
The students did a great job at the Franklin Band Review on Saturday, taking second place. Please take a moment to view the video of the march. Go Inderkum!!!
In volunteer news, we are calling out for Bingo volunteers! We have a desperate need for regular staffing at our Sunday bingo sessions. Please contact our bingo manager directly for more details. She is waiting to hear from you. You may also visit our website for more information.
Continuing in volunteer news, our second band review (in Loomis) is this Saturday, October 20th. The sign-up genius for this event that will identify volunteer needs is being finalized. Please be on the lookout for a communication with the sign-up genius link soon.
In fundraising news, the cookie dough is coming! It will be delivered this Thursday, October 18th. Instructions for pick-up (time, location, etc) will be distributed soon. If there is any unforeseen change in the delivery date, you will be notified as soon as possible.

Please continue to check Inderkum's master calendar for schedules of events, important dates, etc. Our students are very busy with numerous extracurricular activities, academics, and in some cases, employment. Please support your students in all ways possible by stressing the importance of organization and time management with them.
As the school year progresses, the students' class workloads continue to intensify. It is vital that we support the students in all ways possible. Please encourage them to reach out to trusted adults, teachers, administration, friends, and family members if they need help in any way.
Thank you for your continued support. Your involvement and presence in the students' educational experiences matter!
Have a great week!
