HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS WHO CODE CLUB
ICE is applying to host a Girls Who Code Club for the coming school year and is looking for interested students and possibly a parent/guardian instructor.
Interested instructors would need to have the equivalent of at least 3 college level courses in Computer Science, do a bit of training through GWC, and lead coding instruction for about 2 hours a week. All curriculum materials are provided by GWC. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, please contact JD at email@example.com
Interested students should be young women who will be in 9-12th grades in the 2014-15 school year and who want to learn how to become masters of the technology that is around them. If your child is interested, please have them complete this form: Girls Who Code Club Form
More information about Girls Who Code can be found here: http://girlswhocode.com/clubs/

EXPERIENCED GRAPHIC DESIGNERS – ICE NEEDS YOU!
We are hoping to establish a small cadre of
experienced graphic designers from our parent body that the ICE PTA may call upon to design emails,
flyers, posters, etc. for various campaigns, events, etc. Designers and
jobs would be paired up according to need and as the designer’s interests
dictate. Please email Annette Tacconelli at firstname.lastname@example.org if
interested or if you have any technical questions about the parameters of the
job, email Nona Reuter at email@example.com
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR ICE CONSTRUCTION/BEAUTIFY
DAY – JULY 9TH
There is an old saying, “The first
step to success is organization.” Annette Tacconelli is heading up the
ICE Construction/Beautify committee.
We have a professional organizer,
Molly Carlot, who is donating her time/muscle for free to help us! To
maximize Molly’s efforts, she is requesting 2-5 volunteers for our first day
of organizing/cleaning: July 9th, 9-12noon. Please email
immediately if you are interested in bringing more “success" to ICE via
hauling broken chairs, making shelves sparkle and laughing the day away in the
merry ol' land of ICE!
THANK YOU --- FROM MARGARET AND KELLY!
Dear I.C.E. Community,
It’s startling to look at the calendar and see ‘JUNE’!
It seems like only yesterday that we were writing to welcome you to the school
year and invite you to join us and be an active member of the I.C.E.
Join us you did! Thank you for your generosity. This
has been a year of record financial support, participation in everything from
panels to volunteerism and great turnouts at our monthly PTA meetings.
This year through your donations, I.C.E. is the proud owner
of new computer carts, tables, chairs, science equipment and more. Many
of you helped assemble shelves, paint lockers, clean up and make the ICE
facilities more functional for our kids. This year’s Spring Fling was not only
well attended, but had an amazing crew of volunteers who worked together, in
the spirit of I.C.E., to make the evening so special.
We know I.C.E. is a unique school. Our children are
fortunate to be under the tutelage of such dedicated faculty and to be under
the leadership of such committed administration. The PTA is
fortunate to have the backing of parents who rally round the school in so many
It has been our pleasure to lead the I.C.E. PTA this
year. Our best wishes for a safe and pleasant summer. We’ll see you
Kelly and Margaret

Dear ICE Families,
At this point I’m sure you have all received and examined your child’s narrative reports from cycle one. These reports should give you an idea of their accomplishments in each class, as well as ways to improve. I hope that you reach out to teachers to help them know more about your children and to collaborate in supporting their academic development.
This year we are entering the holiday season with a number of significant accomplishments behind us, and a great deal of opportunity ahead of us. This fall ICE students achieved a number of firsts: the ICE Varsity MS Flag Football players are champions of New York City after a great season under the new guidance of Coach Justin White. The ICE HS girls soccer team won 2nd place in the league after a great season with JD – and a tough loss in the playoffs. We have earned first place in several MS debate tournaments and we have 23 students competing for entry in the prestigious New York Science and Engineering Fair. Our staff deserves our praise for the work they do guiding the kids through these challenges.
