iSAP/DreamUp To Space 2018 Mission Patch Designer Finalists Announced!

Mission Control here…

We are thrilled to announce that we had well over 100 incredible patch designs submitted for this year’s 2018 mission patch design challenge. Congratulations to every learner and facilitator who participated. Mission accomplished beyond our wildest dreams!

This year’s designs were so uniformly well conceived and well executed that we had a very tough time narrowing it down to these selected designer finalists:

Mercy Sagar, 5th Grade iLEAD AV
Belle Sanfrey, 5th Grade iLEAD AV
Emma Murphy, 4th Grade iLEAD Encino
Scott Kim, 6th Grade iLEAD Encino
Syla Calderon, 4th Grade iLEAD Lancaster

Andrew Villamar, 4th Grade iLEAD Pacoima
James Mercado, 4th Grade iLEAD Pacoima
Jayna Bunao, 1st Grade SCVi
Skyler Verkouteren, 8th Grade SCVi

Keep a sharp eye out for Monday Messages in the coming weeks as we send our finalist designs out for the final selection of the two patches, TK-5 and 6-12 that will be flown into space in fall 2018!

Help iLEAD Learners Give Back!

This year during spring break a group of iLEAD learners from three entities will be working together to help the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, which is still struggling to rebuild after Hurricane Maria. Learners will be replanting much-needed agriculture, and building sustainable homes and shelters for those left homeless by the devastating storm in September. And to do so they need your help! Please consider donating to the Go Fund Me campaign to raise funds. If you cannot donate please SHARE the page on social media.  The learners also want to bring needed supplies to the island. You can contribute by purchasing items off the Amazon Wish list here.
 
Lastly, you can help raise funds for the trip by dining out on Tuesday, March 20, at Chipotle in Santa Clarita. Don’t forget to bring the attached flier with you, and iLEAD’s Back Packs Full of Hope will earn 50 percent back on your purchase. Win -Win!

Traffic is a BEAST! This is how we slay…

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.

  • No learners will be released without a valet card and proper ID.
  • Please always enter our lots via driving eastbound on K-4, DO NOT turn left into our driveways and always pull as far to the right (curb) as you can get when using the valet line. PLEASE PULL TO THE CURB WHEN WAITING FOR VALET TO BEGIN. STAGGERING PICKUP PREVENTS A BACKUP DOWN AVENUE K-4. Blocking traffic is illegal Please DO NOT park in our neighbors’ lots — your vehicle will be towed.
  • Be very mindful when choosing where to park when visiting our campus for any reason. If you need to drop off your learner and valet is over, please park and walk your learner in. Learners without a parent cannot be properly checked in late.
  • Please do not double park or pull up and let your learner out in front of the school, ever. It is very dangerous.
  • Please remember that our neighbors are very supportive of our site — despite the impact we have on their daily operations — and that all of our neighbors love iLEAD. Let’s show them the same support by parking in iLEAD parking lots ONLY as well as not blocking driveways and always yielding to our neighbors when using valet.

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!

About Those Heelys…

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!
