Parent Education Resources of the week - Topic: School Clubs/Activities
Hey Vikings! Its time to get involved and try something new!
While school and activities certainly look different this year, we still have so much to offer our students with a variety of clubs and activities, both competitive and just plain fun! Joining a new club or activity isn’t as natural for some as it is for others. That’s okay. We all socialize differently.
Joining a club or organization is an easy way to meet people who have the same interests as you. What better way to spark a new friendship than to talk about something you know you both already enjoy? Because of the similar interests, you’ll feel more comfortable to really be yourself!
Not only will you meet new people, but this is a great opportunity to network, and learn new skills that look great on your college and career resume. Clubs can help you focus on skills like leadership, communication, and even professional skills in some of our career oriented clubs like DECA, HOSA, FBLA and MUN. Or maybe you just want to hang out and listen to KPOP, get a little dramatic with Drama Club or connect with your community to make a change in BSU or Feeding America Club. The link below will direct you to a world of opportunity and a wide variety of clubs that are waiting for you! You aren't forced to sign up so why not just click to check it out and find out if you are interested. You never know, you could meet your new best friend - but only if you get involved and take a chance!
We can't wait to see you and say "WELCOME TO THE CLUB!"

News From the School Nurse:
Although we are not currently attending classes on campus, nurses are preparing for the school year as usual, so that when we can physically return, we are able to do so as quickly as possible.
If your child has a life-threatening condition or health update that has not yet been completed, please contact the School Nurse to obtain paperwork for the 20-21 school year.
If your child has received updated vaccinations, please check MyIR.net to ensure the vaccine was recorded in the state database.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions at email@example.com.

From the Counseling Team:
Counselors are hosting "FAQ Fridays" for parents during the lunch hour, every Friday in October. Zoom link for parents to join us: Join Zoom Meeting. These meetings will be from 12:00-12:40 to introduce ourselves, answer parents' most pressing questions, and/or present a topic based on their interests. The topic and structure will vary week to week, and we will improvise as we go along and get a sense of what the topics of interest may be for families. The topic for 10/9 will be about planning for college and what to know about the application season.

Information from the Library!
Welcome to Fall 2020!! The Library is busy coming up with new ways to support families and students with the services and resources you've become accustomed to from us, moving much of our work to both live and asynchronously-accessible.

The district is also working with all Northshore Libraries to provide delivery of these items using our school buses! See the recent King5 News story on this service. Go Reading!! Go Libraries!! Of course, students and staff always have access to our wide collection of digital resources, all linked from our library webpage. Of special interest is OverDrive allowing access to both Northshore’s and KCLS’s digital collection of eBooks and audiobooks. Here’s how!

From the ASB:
ASB Leadership Class is looking forward to the start of a great school year! Student leaders are starting their first project of the year! Projects have been modified for online learning but students will still be active in the Inglemoor community while learning the core values of leadership. You can find a complete list of Inglemoor activities on the Inglemoor website under ASB. We have also held out first senate meeting of the year this week, and look forward to putting student input into our projects. Here is the link to the ASB website: https://sites.google.com/apps.nsd.org/ihs-asb-activities/home
12th, Exec Treasurer
Many students and families have reached out to us about purchasing ASB cards. Currently, ASB cards can only be purchased for students who are involved in a club that is attending conferences or competing. ASB card fees will be assessed to individual student accounts as the club member names are provided to us from the advisors. This year, cards will be broken up into semester 1 and semester 2. Each semester will have a $30 ASB card. This means that if a club or activity only competes during one semester the student will only be charged $30 for the semester that their club or activity is competing in.
This formula will also be applied to sports when they begin as well.
As we enter different stages in the Northshore Learning Model Status, ASB cards may be available for purchase by all students. We will continue to update you as we enter new stages.
Clubs and Common Interest Groups:
Club & Common Interest Group meetings are starting! All Vikings are encouraged and welcome to join any of our 40+ student organizations. Here is the full list of IHS student organizations meeting times & days: 2020-2021 Club Info. Students, don't worry if you missed any information sessions, you can watch Club Information Session Recordings by signing in with your student email and contact advisors with questions.
You are also welcome to form your own club or Common Interest Group! Just follow the steps outlined on the ASB Website.
