IWS Work Day & Potluck

The IWS Parent Council, faculty, and administration would like to invite you to roll up your sleeves and pitch in for this Work Day. School has started but there is still some work to be done before we roll into the fall! It is an expectation at IWS that each parent give at least 10 hours of your time throughout the year to support the school- this is a great way to get started. Work crews include: mulching paths and gardens, painting the girls, boys, and adult bathrooms, a carpentry project or two, staining decks, trail clearing and maintenance, and bonfire building.

What to expect:

Sunday September 15th, 2019 from 2 - 7pm (if this isn't already in your Google or iCal calendar and you want events to automatically show up, go to:

2 - 5 pm - families and children all welcome but there are some experienced adult only projects so sign up for a work crew that fits your skills, interests, and ages of your children!

5 - 7 pm - Potluck dinner and bonfire in the fire pit (weather permitting)

There will be snacks and beverages available all afternoon and at 5pm we'll wrap up the work crews and start the potluck dinner

We hope this will be a fun way to get to know other families in our school community and support our school at the same time. Projects will commence rain or shine so please dress appropriately (ie. rain gear, boots, work gloves, painting clothes, etc.)

Please sign up for a work crew AND a potluck item or two here: Please, NO PEANUTS and LABEL all food with ingredients! All cold food will need to stay cold in cooler chests on ice and hot food will need to stay hot in the oven, a thermal tote, or plugged in until 5pm so please plan what you're bringing accordingly.

We are still working out exactly what is needed and what we have so stay tuned for specific requests for supplies, materials, and tools needed. Please plan to bring whatever gear you have for the crew you sign up for ie. wheelbarrows, clippers, pruners, work gloves, wheelbarrows, shovels, etc.

If you have any questions, please e-mail me directly at I look forward to seeing you at the Work Day!
