The PTA would like to extend our thanks to the Ilchester community for making our first Spring Festival a success! From donating raffle/auction items, contributing baked goods, volunteering at the event, loaning tents and coolers, to helping to plan the activities, and coming to the event with friends and family, so many members of our IES community helped to create a fun-filled day!
We would also like to extend a special thanks to our Silver sponsor, the Chinese-American Parents Association of Howard County, who was inadvertently omitted from the event program. They were instrumental in the festival activities celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage, including sponsoring the Chinese Lion dance, which many families were able to enjoy. Please check out their website and the great work they are doing in our local community.
IES PTA Monthly Meetings
All are welcome, and childcare will be provided! Please join us, and share your ideas and concerns.
Elementary Education interns from Towson University will be on site to provide childcare at each PTA meeting this year.
We will also post upcoming events and details on Facebook - connect with us there to see the latest news!
