Parents in the Know

January 30th, 2015


Dear Parent/Guardian:


National School Choice Week provides an unprecedented opportunity, every January, to shine a positive spotlight on the need for effective education options for all children.  Participants in National School Choice believe that parents should be empowered to choose the best educational environments for their children.  As a school community, we would like to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules yesterday to support our National School Choice event.  It was a very special event.  I hope you enjoyed the event as much your child did.


Again, thank you for all your support!  We look forward to inviting you to many more events in the near future!


Best,


Icahn Charter School 5 school community
