PTSA FITathon and Community Wellness Fair
The IVA PTSA Fit-a-thon will be our largest fundraiser of the year. On Saturday, March 4th at IVA (on the school parking lot). Participants will complete an obstacle course and learn about wellness through the many community vendors. This will be a fun community event….. Join us!!
 
Students can collect pledges online through pledgestar.com/iva/, sign up by Friday, Feb, 24th and your student receives a free dress day. There are many prizes for the students. Our goal is $100 per students and each student can earn a IVA Fit-A-Thon shirt by sending out at least 10 valid emails to friends and family through pledgestar.com/iva/.
 
Flyers with more information are going home with your student(s) today. Please check their backpacks. You may also find the forms here

High School CHOICE Application Results and Intent to Enroll
High School Choice application results are now live on ParentVue. Every program your student has applied to will be listed on the ParentVue system, with a determination on their acceptance status. 

To view your student's results:

1- Log into your ParentVue account with the username and password you created, and click on the "School of Choice" tab.

2- Click "Intend to Enroll" on the one program you and your student wish to select for acceptance, and then click on the "Certify" button at the bottom of the screen to complete the process. If your student only received one acceptance, you must still register their intent to keep that seat. It is not automatic.

3- Confirm the page and print your confirmation of intention.

There is no additional benefit to intending first (or early). However, if the intent to enroll is not completed before the deadline on Wednesday, Mar. 1, at 11:59 pm, your student can lose their acceptance and seat at any particular program or school site.

Appeal forms are available for families on the HS Choice website (also in Spanish).

If you have any trouble logging into your ParentVue account, or have any questions regarding the High School Choice application, please contact the HS Choice Team.
Faculty Academy Day Date Change

Our Faculty Academy day (pupil-free days) has switched from Friday, March 17 to Monday, March 13. This is because that is the only day available for our guest speaker and world-renown educator, Ron Ritchhart, to meet with us. We are very excited in having Dr. Ritchhart for our Faculty Academy and are appreciative to you, our families, for your flexibility and understanding.

Please take just a few minutes right now to complete our mid-year survey. We would love to have 100% participation because we value your thoughts
