Dear ICA Families,

Welcome to First Grade! My name is Miss Griffin and I am looking forward to teaching and learning with everyone this school year.  When you come to school, you will need to bring the below supplies, a healthy snack and drink, and a lunch or lunch money ($3 for lunch/day).


Don't forget to wear your smiles every day of school!



Miss Griffin






This year's school theme is IN CHRIST WE LIVE! Our school symbol for this school year is the butterfly. The butterfly is a symbol of resurrection. According to the Old Testament story, Christ died on the cross, was buried in a tomb for three days, and came to life again to offer hope of life after death.
