Dear ISA Families,
Tomorrow night, Monday, October 29, we begin our recruiting season at Bush Middle School as we present at the first of three NEISD Magnet Informational Sessions. The Magnet Informational Sessions are special events for 8th grade students and their families who are interested in learning more about the various NEISD magnet programs. The evening, outlined in this flyer, allows families to visit informally with students and educators at magnet tables from 5-6:30 p.m. before attending up to three breakout sessions based on interest. NEISD has also arranged for several food trucks at the site, knowing that it can be a busy evening for families.
We will also be hosting our first ISA Shadowing date for prospective freshmen (current 8th graders) and their families on Wednesday, October 29. Families are encouraged to register early by completing the ISA Shadowing Form. Our 2015-2016 Freshman Application is also now posted on our website. Although participation in a Shadowing Program is not required in order for a student to apply to ISA, we encourage all interested students to participate.
As our fall travel experiences approach, the Freshman Team is seeking one more parent chaperone for their trip to Arkansas, and the Sophomore Team is in need of four additional parents for their travel to New Mexico. Freshman families may email Stacy Brooks (email@example.com) and sophomore families may email Bonnie Brawner (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information.
Looking ahead, our first Report Card Pick-Up Night of the year is Thursday, October 30 beginning at 6:00p.m. The Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior Teams will be reviewing final details regarding travel experiences and collecting any last minute paperwork. Families are also invited to stop by the Lee cafeteria before or after Report Card Pick-Up Night meetings to enjoy a Pancake Dinner. Look for more details, including meeting locations, in next week’s Sunday update.
Finally, a reminder that the Freshman Team will be hosting a Saturday School from 9:00am to noon on Saturday, October 25th.
Have a wonderful week!
