A Show on Kindness and Acceptance ~
Unified Theater

On March 3, friends and family had the chance to witness A Show on Kindness and Acceptance, an original production, written, produced and directed by the students of IEA and Northwest Catholic. Throughout the play students put together small skits showing how to practice kindness and acceptance in a variety of situations. The show took us from the classroom to the football field, through culinary school, and even a debate between artists and scientists. Through all of these situations, the students were able to resolve their conflicts in a positive way. In the end, one of the actors said it best, "I love kindness and acceptance!"

IEA Spring Fun Career Day

On March 31, students had the opportunity to take part in IEA's Spring Fun Career Day. Throughout the afternoon, students learned about a variety of careers including: chef, video editor, building supervisor, yoga instructor, occupational therapist, grocery store clerk, and bridge engineer. Additionally, some recent alumni, Rachel, Tommy, Ryan and Randy, stopped by to share some of their experiences since graduating IEA. As Rachel shared, "You may not enjoy your jobs, but they are all on the path that will help you find what you really want to do."
At the end of the day, students shared what they had learned. Some of the highlights included:
"Anyone can have any job they want, if they work to pursue those goals."
"Always keep your head up, and have an open mind for new ideas, be a good teammate and help one another."
"Work is hard, work is fun, work is AWESOME!"
