Spirit Day - Friday, September 30th

posted Sep 29, 2016, 12:17 PM by iles webmaster

Our next Spirit Day will be TOMORROW Friday, September 30.  Students can wear an ILE Spirit Day t-shirt on top with their choice of bottoms.  Students may also pay 50 cents to wear a hat.  The September hat day money will be donated to the Garrett Pope Memorial Fund.  This fund is in honor of 11 year old Garrett Pope who is a former ILE student and died from accidental asphyxiation a few weeks ago.  Garrett’s parents Stacy and Garrett Sr., created the Garrett Pope Jr. Memorial Fund to immediately impact the IL community’s children.  Garrett loved to read and this fund will be used to purchase classroom library books for students at ILE and ILM-the two schools Garrett attended.  The Popes are such an amazing family that even while they are grieving the loss of their wonderful son, Garrett, they are supporting the schools he attended and helping other children to love reading as much as Garrett did.  I hope you will encourage your child to pay fifty cents to wear a hat tomorrow (September 30) so that ILE can make a large donation in honor of sweet Garrett.  Thank you.  Beth Blum, ILE Principal
