ICS 5 Latest News

Dear Parents and Families:

Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most.

We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: 
encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives.

Our Scholastic Book Fair theme – Under the Sea: Explore an Ocean of Books –surrounds students in the celebration of reading with hundreds of fun, engaging, affordable books for them to discover. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.

Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Now is the time. Since there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in his/her child’s education, please make plans to visit our Book Fair. Hope to see you there!

Book Fair Dates:       Monday, May 11, 2015: Grades 6 – 8,

                                Thursday, May 14, 2015: Grades K – 5

Shopping Hours:      Icahn 5 Students: School hours Icahn 5 Parents: 4:00pm – 6:00pm (Thursday Only)

Special Events:       Friday, May 15 will be last call for book shopping. It is open to all three schools

Before you visit the Book Fair be sure to download the FREE Book Fairs App to help you find the right fit books for your child. For more information, visit: And if you’re all booked up during Book Fair week be sure to visit the Book Fair online at

Our Online Fair is available for an extended time from May 6, 2015 to May 19, 2015.

We look forward to having you participate in our Fair, and remember, all purchases benefit our school.


Mr. Lawford Cunningham
