15 Days Until Finals..............Are you Ready for it?

Image result for you've got thisHopefully, everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving break! We are on day two of our return, and the question we all have is.....when is Christmas break? As much as we love being at school, spending time with our families and friends was so nice! We are sure a few of you enjoyed sleeping in as well. The answer to "when is Christmas break" is SOON! We have 15 days until semester finals. So, with that being said, we want to highlight different resources we have in our building to maintain or raise your grades. For example, if you are borderline between two letter grades, talk to your teacher. Ask about extra credit. Attend after school tutoring in the school library on Tuesdays and Thursday. It is crunch time, and we are here to help! Please see your guidance counselor for assistance. It has been a great year to be a ghost! Happy Tuesday!

Nurse for a Day - IVC Students Featured on the News

During your childhood you're asked what you want to be when you grow up. However, you rarely get the chance to experience anything before giving an answer. Our students had the chance to explore the nursing field when they attended Nurse for a Day at OSF. We were very proud of our students who represented IVC. The students learned everything from how to insert tubes to dressing wounds. 

For future opportunities please see your guidance counselor.

Check out the video to see Parker Clevenger on the news!!
