ICSID AdvancED Accreditation Survey
As you should be aware by now, the ICISD is engaged in the AdvancED Accreditation continuous improvement process in hopes of achieving accreditation. AdvancED is how we will be mapping our efforts to better serve our students, families and schools. An important part of this improvement process is the Self Assessment as it allows us to self-rate ourselves to reveal how we think we are adhering to the AdvancED Standards of Quality. Your reflection on what you feel the ICISD is and does is extremely important. Please take the time ASAP to complete the survey using one of the two links below. Thank you.

Students Chosen As Volunteers For The Month
Enrich of Ionia County have chosen the students from the Independent Living Center as our volunteer of the month. These students come to the Resale Shop, once a week, to provide janitorial services. They learn basic job skills and provide a needed service for the nonprofit. Win-Win! Thank you to Meijer of Ionia for the gift cards to present to these awesome volunteers!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for Ionia Montcalm Kids 3rd Meal
IM (Ionia-Montcalm) Kids 3rd Meal is a brand new feeding program working to provide food insecure children in our communities with their evening meal Monday through Friday. Ionia County and Montcalm County have 3530 and 4090 food insecure children, respectively, who run the risk of a school lunch being their last meal of the day. We are providing evening meals to almost 500 children each day.

The size of this mission requires a lot of community support. If you or your organization is interested in volunteering with us, we offer a variety of projects and ways to help at our website www.imkids.org. We hope with community support to grow from 500 meals to eventually providing for all food insecure children in our communities.
