We regret to inform you that our current after school coordinator, Delphine, is unable to continue on in that role. As such, the FO is looking for a parent (or two) who can take on the responsibility of running our current teacher and parent run after school programs. The work involves creating the schedule each term of the available programs, working with parents and teachers on the creation of new programs and coordinating with teachers. A parent with a flexible schedule would be ideal, but really anyone with strong organizational skills can do this job! Please refer to the FO website, icsfamilies.org, to see the current programs. Anyone interested in the coordinator position can send an email to ICSFamOrg@gmail.com.
Of course you, as members of the ICS community, may be wondering what will happen to the our great enrichment programs if we do not have an after school coordinator. We do not want to alarm everyone, so please be assured that we are doing our best to make sure that the teacher and parent run programs continue. We know how important it is to have after school, I rely on it myself. So please be aware that the school administered programs such as Kid's Orbit, Mark Morris and Brooklyn Music School are not affected by this. If you have any questions, please send them to ICSFamOrg@gmail.com.
But to be clear, it is vital that we find a new coordinator, to keep programs such as Art, Robotics, Chorus and Chess continuing.
Lastly, Delphine, thank you for all the time an effort that you have put in as coordinator. The program would not be where it is today without all of your hard work! ICS was very lucky that you stepped up to help out.
Thanks to everyone,
Simone and Grace
