Island Creek Summer Updates, August 4


Class Assignments

better together

Students’ individual classroom teacher assignments will be emailed directly to families on Wednesday, August 17th .  We are still registering students; therefore, are unable to finalize class rosters.  As Island Creek is a dedicated Professional Learning Community, teachers at every grade level collaborate interdependently throughout the school year to support the academic and social-emotional achievement of all students.  All teachers are highly qualified and were selected as members of this staff because they meet the high standards and expectations we have in our community.  We appreciate your support of all of our talented teachers!  


Tax-Free Weekend

As a reminder, this upcoming weekend, August 5-7, is Virginia’s sales tax holiday. School supplies are eligible for tax free purchases. See this link for more information https://www.tax.virginia.gov/virginia-sales-tax-holiday.


Calling All 6th Grade Students

We would like to invite our 6th Grade Students to the Island Creek Cafeteria on Thursday, August 11 from 11:30-12:30 for pizza and conversation. Our purpose is to get to know our 6th Graders better and hear thoughts from our 6th Graders about the wonderful things they've experienced at Island Creek and how we can improve to ensure that all students feel welcomed at school!
