Dear Iroquois Family,

Good afternoon, here is important information for the week of April 17th.

High School

This year, the High School musical was a spectacular performance of SpongeBob.  As a result, multiple aspects of the performance are under consideration to be nominated for a Kenny Award.  Shea’s Theater will be livestreaming the Kenny Award Nomination Ceremony tonight, April 17th at 7 p.m.  It can be watched on Shea’s Arts and Engagement Facebook page.  Good luck to the cast and crew.

The Iroquois High School Parents Association is hosting two events to raise funds for the Class of 2023.  Please follow the link to learn more about the bottle drive and Spirit Night at Chick Filet.  Additionally, there is information on how you can donate funds directly.
