IV Eagle Flyby (December 7, 2018) 
The IV Winter Concert Series is two-thirds completed as Chorus, Select Choir, Band, and Jazz Band have concluded their performances. The Orchestra concerts on Monday, December 17 and Tuesday, December 18 will bring closure to the series heading into the holidays.  We are very proud of our musicians and vocalists and greatly appreciate the work and effort they put forth in making the Performing Arts program a huge success.  Also, a special Thank You to Mrs. Ramage, Mrs. Clausz, and Mr. Haggerty for their work and commitment to the IV Performing Arts program.  Furthermore, a sincere Thank You to all parents and families for supporting the Performing Arts program at IV.

The IV Girls Basketball team is having a stellar season. Four games remain until the amped up season closer vs. IC on Wednesday, December 19 at the IC gymnasium. Additionally, the SASD Middle School Wrestling team officially opens the season on Thursday, December 20 with a dual meet against Pennbrook at the IC gymnasium.  Note that all home wrestling matches are at the IC gymnasium. We wish our girls basketball and wrestling teams the best in their upcoming games and matches.  Boys Basketball is on the horizon with practices starting when we return after the holiday break.
