I hope this finds you all well, and enjoying the welcome change in the weather. It is hard to believe that we only have three weeks left of school! As we navigate this new reality and all of the changes which have ensued, I reflect on how thankful I am for this school community, and how proud I am of the teachers,students, and families who have stepped up to the challenge.
I wanted to give you an update on a few key dates relating to the end of the year at this time. For those of you who have been in the vicinity of ISLA in the past few weeks, you might have noticed that the city of Minnetonka is undertaking a significant road construction project which has prevented us from confirming some of these end of the year activities until now.
For the last few weeks of school, I would like to encourage all children to participate in all classes to the fullest extent, including specialist’s classes.
Thank you for everything you are doing to help us on this journey.

Great news! We are offering a pre-packaged school supply program again this year. Supply orders include the exact colors, quantities, and brands your teachers have approved for class. The supply boxes will be shipped to ISLA and waiting for your child at Meet the Teacher night at the beginning of the school year. This program is optional and class supply lists will be available this summer on the ISLA website if you choose to do shopping yourself. Get your school supply shopping done in the comfort of your home and help raise money for the ISLA PTO at the same time! It's a win-win.
Make sure to order for your child's grade that they will be in NEXT FALL!
Simply place your order by JUNE 12, 2020

Dear ISLA Families,
I am very excited to announce that ISLA will have a Virtual Field Day on Friday May 29th!
Field Day is an important tradition at our school. It is a significant day for our students and our staff, and I feel that in these incredibly challenging times, this is a unique way that we can stay connected as a community and support one another in a fun and meaningful way.
All games and activities are designed to be done indoors or outdoors using common household items. You won’t be asked to purchase any specialized equipment or supplies. The most important thing is that we all have a fun day exercising and moving.
Here’show it will work:
I really appreciate your cooperation and I hope that your entire family will participate and find this day as a fun and meaningful way to be physically active together and with our entire school community.
We are currently accepting registrations for the 2020/2021 Aventuras calendar. Registration for 2020/2021 school year will close on Thursday, June 4th, 2020.
We have made some changes to the registration process this year that will allow us to maintain a robust program with minor program changes for the 2020/2021 school year.
In light of the current pandemic and to help the ISLA community, ISLA has made the decision to keep all of the current care fees the same except for the Late Start fee. Due to this decision, there will be a fee increase in 2021/2022 to keep in line with market standards.
There area few changes for the 2020/2021 school year and they can be found in the body of the application required by all families requesting care.
Here are two important changes:
Registration for the 2020/2021 school year will be as follows:
All families requesting care must complete the 2020/2021 registration form with a signature and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org . Applications will be placed in the order received and scheduled according to the guidelines below.
Email confirmations of your application will be sent out within 24 hours of your submission. Applications received over the weekend will be sent confirmation on Mondays.
Priority for scheduling the 2020/2021 school year will be as follows:
** If Aventuras reaches capacity during registration, interested families will be put on a wait list for possible openings in the future. All families will be notified via email regarding your care status for the 2020/2021 school year by the end of June. You will also receive information on how to update and/or enroll in the OnCare Parent Portal.
If you have any questions, please send an email to email@example.com.
