Student Support Classes

From now until winner break, all elementary classes will focus on total wellness focusing on drug and alcohol education and prevention. Older grades will study body systems and organs and the effect of cigarettes, alcohol and other drugs. These lessons focus on encouraging children to make healthy lifestyle choices.

 Mix It Up Day!

The Iles Me to We Leadership Team is busy decorating the Iles Café for Mix It Up Day on Tuesday, October 22nd.  Students will mix it up at lunch and sit at different tables. We randomly color code so students will be sitting with other students they might not know yet.
