Sunway, Inc.
Thanks to Sunway, Inc., our newest educational partner, for hosting us at their Centuria plant for a tour. We learned about the design and manufacturing of many different products. They also provided us with a delicious pizza lunch! We look forward to going back to manufacture our desk tops in October. Thanks to President/CEO, Tim Skiba, for allowing us this opportunity. Thanks also to Dave Brian, plant manager for the wonderful tour. We won't forget about our instruction from Dan, the "leg man". Thanks to all the employees at Sunway, Inc. for letting us interrupt your day. We had a great time!

Bake Sale
We are gearing up for our first Gallery Walk on November 13 by baking and canning some delicious recipes for you! New this year, ICA will be hosting our first ICA Gallery Shop, where you can purchase items that we have created like delicious jams, breads, and apple pie fillings. The ICA Gallery Shop will be open during the Gallery Walk event from 2:00-4:00 p.m. and from 5:00-6:00 p.m. We hope you can stop out and see our great work and purchase some wonderful handmade products!


Dragonfly Gardens

Dragonfly Gardens

We visited Dragonfly Gardens to learn more about native plant species. We purchased 11 flats of native plants to bring back to our school and put in our prairie. Thanks to the great staff at Dragonfly for their time and talents. Also, thanks to owner, Rob, and manager, Louie, for donating classroom plants to brighten up our spaces.

Calling all Volunteers
We are looking for local volunteers willing to be on an ICA student's "Friends and Family Team" list. These people would be willing to support this student by coming to ICA Gallery Walks, critique independent projects and communicate quarterly with them. If you are able to fulfill this role, please contact ICA teachers, Mrs. Sheri Johnson or Mrs. Tirzah Zipperer below. Thanks!
