I am pleased to announce that ICS now has a visually engaging and dynamic website that will help facilitate communication within the community and tell the story of our school.
The mobile-friendly website, www.icsgeorgia.org, will launch Nov. 20. It prominently features recent news articles, a school event calendar and other ways to stay in touch with the latest happenings. Parents will find it easy to stay up to date with downloads for the most recent school lunch menu, Parent Handbook and annual calendar; information about the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP); and an archive our bi-weekly newsletter.
The website was built as part of the event 48in48, in which Atlanta organizers rallied more than 150 digital media specialists to build 48 customized websites for 48 nonprofits within 48 hours. In addition to the website design and development, the program provided training for two staff members in the web publishing software, WordPress. For more information about this great event, visit 48in48.org.
I would like to say a special thank you to Emmalee Hackshaw, our former development director, who discovered and pursued the opportunity, and Claudia Rule, communications coordinator, and Maureen Sweatman, director of finance and operation, who along with Emmalee, worked at a record pace to ready the site for launch and fill a long overdue communications need at our school.
The school will continue to refine and add to the information currently available on the site, as well as research expanded opportunities to communicate with our community, with possibilities that include site translation. If you have any comments or suggestions, please email them to Claudia at [email protected]
