New Monday Message Delivery Schedule

iLEAD hosted a few focus groups with our family stakeholders in January to talk about improvements in school-to-family communication. Overwhelmingly, in more than one of our focus groups, the request for an earlier delivery of the Monday Message was requested.

You spoke, we listened! So here today is our first installment of the Monday Message delivered on a Sunday afternoon. We hope that this weekend delivery will better serve your family’s needs.


Hello, Families!
All remaining field trips for the spring semester were released this past Tuesday via email and our Exploration Facebook page. There are still some spring field trips with openings available. Click here to browse the field trips! When you click on the Eventbrite for the activity, it will tell you whether sales have ended.

Instructional Funds Reminder

Hello, Families!
Second semester is rapidly approaching, which means it is time to begin placing your orders before classes begin! The deadline to place all orders for the 2016-2017 school year is April 8.

Exploration Reminders

Greetings, Families!

The LegoLand field trip will be released on February 7. We had a great number of families sign up for our field trips that were released last Tuesday, December 6. For field trips that still have spaces, a signup link has been provided in the “Field Trip” section below.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season with your families!

Thanksgiving Reminders

Dear Families,

We hope you had a restful Thanksgiving break with your family and friends! By way of reminder, December 6 is an important date for two reasons:

1) All spring semester field trips will be released at 9 a.m. via iLEAD Exploration’s Facebook page and email ; and
2) Instructional funds for second semester will become available.

As we approach the December holiday season, your iLEAD family is here to support your quest for learning. We are very thankful for you, our beloved families!

Thanksgiving Reminders

Dear Families,

As we approach the holiday season, your educational facilitators would like you to know that it has been a joy to collaborate with your families in our learning period meetings. We thoroughly enjoy learning alongside each of you and are inspired by your love and dedication in delivering the best in personalized education to your children!

By way of reminder, second semester funds will drop on December 6. Please let your EF know if there is anything for which you need assistance. Also, this is the last week we will be accepting new enrollments on our second track with full funding, so please let your homeschooling friends and neighbors know.

With hearts full of admiration and gratitude,

Your iLEAD Exploration Team
