Student Spotlight

One of IC Imagine’s band students, Gyani Patel, is a member of the Brevard Community Band.  This summer, Gyani was awarded an individual scholarship of $1,500. The scholarship, which may be used for private music lessons and/or music camp, was established by the Brevard Community Band (BCB) to promote the growth of promising young musicians within the community. Students were selected based on their musicianship, positive attitude, initiative and drive. Gyani was one of the five recipients (2 high school and 3 college recipients) and only the second youngest in the history of the organization (established in 1985) to receive this scholarship.  Congratulations Gyani!

Congratulations to Upper School Visual Arts student Fernando Cubano for being the designer of this year’s Fine Arts 5k t-shirt!  Fernando is a student of Ms. Clark’s and is currently enrolled in Art III.  The design contest was open to all visual arts students in grades 6-12 and Fernando’s design was chosen by the Fine Arts faculty.  Below you can see Fernando’s original design as well as Fernando showing off his t-shirt.  Excellent work Fernando!

Donations Needed

Mrs. Guss will be doing a unit on Digital Photography with her Art classes this year and is in need of cameras! Do you have an old point and shoot lying around?  Is it 12 MP or more?  How about  donating it?  If it is a rechargeable battery we would love the charger too!  

We will also gladly accept donations of SD memory cards. If you have questions about the suitability of a camera or SD card, please email: traceyguss@icimagine.orgDonations can be left at the front desk labeled with Mrs. Guss’s name.  Thank you!!

Public Art Works

Mrs. Guss’s students have been installing work around our school!  This is what she said about their assignment:  “For the “Art of the Silhouette” project students began by looking at the work of Banksy and Kara Walker and learned how the simple form of a silhouette can effectively convey a message.  We talked about graffiti and the role of public art, then students had to create their own visual to be displayed  here at school in the public spaces. These images were then transferred onto repositionable black vinyl and cut out by hand.  My hope by doing projects like this is to foster a connection to the school space and a desire to have and create more public art for the school community.”

Lower School Investment Sharing Nights

We have had to make the difficult decision to move our Lower School investment nights scheduled for October to virtual events.  We realize that this is certainly not an ideal situation, however we feel that it is the best decision we can make in order to keep our students and faculty as safe as possible.  We still want to make sure that families have the opportunity to experience all of the amazing things that are happening in our Lower School investment classes (Art, Music, PE, Spanish and Theatre), so please make sure that your calendars are marked to join us for a virtual evening of investment fun!  

K-2nd grades will participate in their investment sharing night on Tuesday, October 19 at 6:00pm via Zoom.  3rd-5th grades will participate in their investment sharing night on Tuesday, October 26 at 6:00pm via Zoom.  Zoom links for these events will be available in this week’s grade level newsletters, as well as on the school calendar on our website (icimagine.org).  We look forward to seeing everyone there!

Band and Choral Concerts

Congratulations to our Middle and Upper School band and choral students on successful first concerts of the 2021-2022 school year!  Even though the performances had to look a little different than usual, we were so excited to be able to host in person performances as well as offer a streaming option for those who were unable to join us live.  Thank you to Mrs. Crayton, Mrs. Montgomery, and Mr. Wellman for all of their hard work and dedication to our students and the music programs at IC Imagine!

Middle School Fall Theatre Performance

The MS Theatre Classes will be performing on Friday, November 5th, at 6:00pm in the Imagine Performing Arts Center (IPAC).  The MS1 class will be performing their version of four different stories:  The Giving Tree, Goldilocks & The Three Bears, Where The Wild Things Are, and Rumpelstiltskin.  After a brief intermission, the MS2 class will be performing an original adaptation of Alice in Wonderland…with a twist.

These students have been working especially hard in class researching and developing their characters, rehearsing their shows, building sets, props, and costumes, and so much more.  They have done a great job and the audience will love the retelling of these classic tales!
