Our school begins earlier than most. I was back at work August 5. Students started classes on the 12th.
The first weeks of the term are always busy with gatherings: teacher meetings, assemblies, parent nights. This year those meetings more often than not included a sing-along of ICS’s new school song.
Last spring ICS brought in a resident artist, Thomas Tafejian, to work with our music students. Tom is a young musician who launched a successful $10,000 Kickstarter campaign to help kids around the world express themselves through songwriting.
This being ICS’s 50th anniversary year, one of the projects Tom did with our kids was to write a school song.

Gotta admit, it’s catchy. And I’m sure happy to be able to replace the theme from Gilligan’s Island that’s been playing in my head for a month.
