Upcoming Events
ICGS Parents of students PK through 5th grade are invited to attend the ICGS PTO Summer Planning Meeting for the upcoming school year on Monday, June 24th, at 6pm at the Mason City Public Library meeting room. We'd love to increase the number of parents involved with supporting teachers, students, families, and the community through PTO membership and/or service. The meeting should be about an hour, and our main purpose will be to figure out what goals the PTO will work toward next year and how we want to structure the organization as a whole. We'd love to see you at the meeting! We're also giving away 7 pairs of Cardinals ticket vouchers to those in attendance at the meeting, so don't miss out!
