Calendar and Schedule

ICS is closed on Federal holidays but does not give all the same holidays as the DoE.

On many Thursdays and other half-days, students are dismissed at 12:10 pm to allow for teacher professional development.

Our day runs from 8:00 am to 3:40 pm for Kindergarten and 1st graders. For 2nd grade and older, we start at 8:10 and finish at 3:50.

We have nine class periods, and a nap time for kindergarteners.

Recess happens every day, even if our teachers have to bundle up to take your kids out.

We begin each day with Morning Meeting, a chance to gather together on the carpet, share news and talk about the day ahead. Math and reading, which is divided into two 50 min blocks, is often scheduled in the morning. Many afternoons we also schedule small group instruction (SGI) where the children are regrouped to work on specific challenges or extensions based on personal need.

Most days we end with choice time, where the children chose from block play, dress up, and other creative options. Classes include:

Reading Yoga Math
Dance Art Science
Music Spanish Gym
History Geography
