IES PTA is required by the State PTA to update our By-Laws this year. IES PTA will be voting on the revised By-Laws at our next meeting.
There are a few changes to this revision of the By-Laws. The most significant of which is the definition of a quorum.
Please review and address any questions, comments or concerns to the Board.
IESPTA-DRAFT Revised Bylaws 11-2012
The next IES PTA meeting is on Tuesday November 27 from 5:30 to 6:30pm in the teacher’s lounge. We have scheduled evening meetings so that working parents or parents who are otherwise busy during the day have a chance to attend meetings, so please put the PTA meeting on your calendar.
CALLING ALL SCIENCE ENTHUSIASTS
Get ready for a fabulous and fun Science Fair at I.E.S. on December 4th from 8:30 AM – 2:00 PM hosted by Sierra Watershed Education Program (SWEP). During the fair, each grade level will get to explore 10 different science stations such as: Smelly Balloons, Tornado Tube Racer, Bubble Science, Ray Gun, etc. while learning about the scientific method. Parent volunteers are welcomed, encouraged and quite frankly, needed. (There will be an informal training the night before to help parents get acquainted with their station.) If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Jennifer Suter at Jennifer@tluxp.com.
The IES Student Council would like to announce the kick off of their Project MANA Holiday Food Drive. Thanksgiving will be here soon and there is a need for food to help feed families for the upcoming holiday.
Your child was given a bag to return with a food donation. Please fill this bag with canned food and have your child bring the filled bag back to school to put into the Food Drive Barrel. Food barrels are located at both school entrances. The Food Drive will end on Nov 20.
**Thank you to Village Market for the donations of the bags! Please return the favor by supporting our local business.**
Please help the students of IES help others this holiday season. Thank you for your generous support of Project MANA, as a 501 (c)(3) organization your contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

One of the biggest expenses of even the shortest field trip is transportation. IES would like to help lower the cost of transportation by creating a parent driver group. This would be parents from all grades who have been approved to drive students in their private vehicles to and from field trips.
Washoe County School District requires that anyone who will be transporting students for any reason this year fill out paper work and take a Defensive Driving Class. This class is offered the first Tuesday of every month at the district office. They are having one at Incline High School on October 31st from 1:00 to 4:00. If you take it at the district office you have to sign up on line. If you would like to be included in the one here at the High School all you have to do is e-mail Diane Renolds and let her know. It is Mandatory that you take this class before you can use any of the school vehicles ot transport any student to events.
Please contact Mr. Harssema or Ms. Frederick at the school to volunteer to be a parent driver.
