The 8th Grade Guidance Class is currently working on their “Create a Company” Project. This project is related to their initial Pathway choice for the High School! For this project, students are creating a company based on their Pathway choice and includes creating a company name, a logo, a mission statement, and an advertisement. Students also choose specific roles within the company and think about additional staff and equipment that would be needed. The students are designing creative and fantastic companies! These are examples from three projects. Great work 8th Grade!

Our 7th and 8th Grade singers stayed after school on Wednesday, November 7th to record our entry into this year’s MORE-FM Christmas Choir Contest. Although the entire group could not make it, we had an enthusiastic group who sang with energy and emotion and we were able to get a fantastic recording. The contest semi-finalists will be announced on Friday, November 23 and the contest takes place on November 26-29. More information to follow – get ready to vote for IVMS should we be selected!
Here’s our entry! We hope you LOVE it!
