Hello iLEAD Families,
I can’t believe the year is flying by so rapidly, it’s almost winter break! Our learners are making great progress in building culture on our campus. Their smiling faces brighten all of our days. I really appreciate the feeling of family that is developing as I walk through the halls. Our staff is showing tremendous growth in making sure that your learners’ academics and social-emotional sense of community is most important.
A special thank you to all of our families and staff who attended and volunteered at the Winter Boutique. Building our iLEAD family community through supporting our local families is so important to us. I encourage you to take advantage of these events. They happen often and they are so fun! Our next event is our annual winter production. This event is taking place at Highland High School on Jan. 19. Come and see your learners perform songs, spoken word, and skits. There are three shows to serve your family. Additional information is below.
Please join us for a coffee and conversations with me tomorrow at our ED Talk in the village. Our iSupport meeting is coming up Tuesday at 6 p.m.. Join us to stay in the know on all of the fundraising, climate changing, and culture building initiatives our parents are planning for our school.

Our school community has expanded and we are making some adjustments to address and support our growth. Please join us this Tuesday for an ED Talk where we will be addressing our expansion, our goals for this year and our current safety plan. At iLEAD we value voice and choice and we encourage your attendance so we can include your opinions and suggestions in our goals. We look forward to sharing a light breakfast, coffee and conversation with you.
Dec. 12 – Our December iSupport meeting will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 12, at 6 p.m. We value your feedback. We hope you will join us to discuss the Winter Production, our Nights Out fundraisers and a few more fun events coming your way!
We hope you will join us as we take a lap though the halls singing carols to our learners. The following songs will be sung, so start practicing: “Jingle Bells,” “Rudolph,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” and “Feliz Navidad.” Song books will be available. SO WILL COFFEE! Dress in your festive best and end the semester with a joyful noise!
Please rsvp to Kristan!
Feb. 1 – iLEAD Exploration, Home School Vendor Night. Come check out the amazing vendors our homeschool program has to offer. 4-6 p.m. in the village. Bring your friends!
Unfortunately our Parents Night Out event last Friday was canceled due to lack of registration and participation. We thought we contacted the few families who did register but it has come to our attention that we may have missed you. It is with sincere apologies that we did not get in touch with those who attended the event not knowing. We always place notifications first and we fell short this time around. Please contact Kristan if you are one of those families, we have a special treat for you! We will have another one in February so please keep that in mind as you make your Valentine’s Day plans.
A-H, 5-6 p.m.
I-P, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Q-Z, 7:45-8:45 p.m.
We will be collecting new toys for our community by partnering with Toys for Tots. If you can find it in your heart to support, please send in an unwrapped toy any time. We have met so many of you who, at a time when hardship may have struck your lives, have received these needed toys for your families. Now is the time to pay it forward. A great opportunity to do so would be our Winter Boutique event on Dec. 1. We thank you for supporting our community.
This week Innovation Studios was visited by Anne Cochran for college planning.
Innovation Studios Partaaayyyy!
On Dec. 15 from 9 to 12 we will have a party to celebrate the holidays. We are asking each learner to bring a food or drink they enjoy this time of year. Please sign up to bring an item using this link.
We would like all learners to be present next Tuesday and Wednesday for MAPs testing.

Did you know that there may be multiple pages of the Monday Message you are missing every week by not scrolling to the bottom? Now also available: PDF’s of the Monday Message in the front office by noon on Monday. We are working on a Spanish version — please let us know if this is something you would like to earn volunteer hours for.
Please let us know how we can help you stay informed. Email Kristan with your ideas.
Hello parents! We encourage the use of VALET for all drop-off and pickup for safety reasons. K-4 is a busy commerce street and we value the safety of our learners! Remember, if you are not using valet, all children should be walked to the front door by their parent/guardian. Learners without a chaperone will warrant a call home.
If you need clarification as to where to park please ask ANY iLEAD employee. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT TURNING LEFT INTO THE VALET ENTRANCE AND OUT OF THE EXIT IS A HAZARD TO BOTH YOUR VEHICLE AND OUR LEARNERS. IT IS ALSO A TRAFFIC PATTERN DISRUPTION.
Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our learners and your vehicles safe!

We’ve seen an influx of Heelys on campus. Learners are zipping along the halls and on the play spaces. While we LOVE fun and seeing our learners enjoying themselves, we have to ask that they don’t use the wheels while at school. Please understand this is a safety concern for learners and staff. We want to prevent accidents and keep everyone safe. Heelys brand shoes can be worn, — just please remove the wheels for school.
General safety guidelines also include no skateboards or bicycles being ridden on campus; they must be carried and walked.
Thank you for your understanding and support!

There is ongoing litigation between the California Department of Education and the Concerned Parent Association. A notice issued by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson states, “The lawsuit accuses CDE of widespread, systemic non-compliance by local educational agencies with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.”
The court has ordered CDE to release student and parent information to provide personally identifiable information (PII) – an act that can only be taken as an exception to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). As a result, we are providing notice of the court order and directions to anyone wishing to object.
Please be advised that CDE will notify parents or students of whom are required to disclose information and those individuals may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure using the PDF link below:
