IBES celebrated Earth Day on April 22nd. This activity was coordinated by the IBES PTO and this year we focus on the American Forest. Thanks to a grant from CF Industries and money from our PTO we were able to purchase 11 trees to plant around our campus by the baseball and softball fields and on the IBES playground. During Earth Day, students learned about gifts we get from trees, animals who have habitats in trees and identifying trees by look, smell and bark. Students did a web search to find facts about trees, made a recycled bag art project, watched a tree planting demonstration and listened to guest readers share a story called, The Great Kapok Tree. It was a great day. Here are a few pictures of the event.
We had a wonderful Hat Day on March 27th. Thanks to the generosity of our IBES families, we presented a check for $800 to the IL Cancer Care Foundation. The students looked great in their hats and their donations will help a great deal of people currently getting treatments for cancer.
Several of our PTO moms and dads are leaving PTO as their children move from IBES to IBMS. This leaves several of our PTO activities without a chairman to lead the activity. Here is a list of activities we need help with.
