Dear Parents, Guardians and Staff!
Welcome back from the Autumn Break! We hope that your batteries are re-charged and ready for the second half of the Fall Term.

We are very excited to announce that Instagram and Tweets with #ieslund are now visible on the PTA website. First to take advantage of the flow is Ms. Sundin and the IES team at the 4D World Wide Finals! Take a look and share with your friends!

Drop Off Zone
Please respect that the Drop Off Zone in the parking lot is the only place for parents to drop off and pick up their students. The loading dock and street in front of the school are no stopping / parking zones. Especially parents are requested to respect that the parking lot of the elder care home is very inappropriate as ambulances need access to assist the residents who have emergencies. The school has received numerous complaints. Let’s help to be good local citizens! We will be running a traffic safety week together with the school; keep an eye out for the dates!

Meet and Greet October 14
The Meet and Greet was a great success! It was wonderful to see so many parents, Mr Olsson, Mr Riber and Mr. Brunker. All contributions of finger food were truly impressive! We hope to repeat the event next year and also make it an IESL tradition.

Junior Thanksgiving Disco
The Junior Thanksgiving Disco (Classes 4 – 6) will be held on November 20. The disco committee is in full swing. Keep an eye out for information regarding ticket sales.

The Senior Thanksgiving Disco (classes 7 – 9) will be held on November 27. The committee is still getting set up. If you are interested in helping out please send us an email ptaieslund@gmail.com.

Nomination Committee
The PTA still needs two more members for the PTA Board Nomination Committee for next year. The Nomination Committee is a very important team, which suggests the board members for election at the Annual General Meeting. We have one member, but we need more to ensure that we have a vibrant board as the school continues to grow. If you, or somebody you know, are interested, please send an email with your contact information to the PTA email address, ptaieslund@gmail.com.

Kind regards,
Karin Williams, Chairperson on behalf of the PTA Board
