State testing will be coming up soon. One of the things students often struggle with is computer skills. Lucky for you, you have a lot of practice on the computer, but how are your typing skills? We often get complacent, or lazy and use informal text (not capitalizing, abbreviating, using acronyms) in our daily lives, but on State testing, we need to use formal text. Use typing.com to help with typing fluency and speed, but don’t forget to practice using proper English as well…punctuation, capitalization, & grammar. Get in the habit of using proper text in all of your school work.
Happy Learning!-Mrs. L

Student success in this 3rd quarter in all science courses has been good. I have seen a big improvement in students keeping on pace with their work. There were some slight adjustments that were made to students’ assignments this semester in all science assignments that appear to be working very well. It is vitally important that all students do these 3 things before beginning their work each day:
Other keys to success include:
I have an open-door policy for students that need help and require that my students come for help when needed. I have an open-door policy and will help students at any time during the school day or will schedule tutoring times with them if I am not readily available at the moment. It has been great to see the progress so many students are making. Enjoy this month!
Senior Class Corner
Our Senior class is going strong. There are many of our Seniors that are presently taking college classes at both Barstow and Victor Valley community colleges. Academically we have seen a marked improvement in writing and math skills as Mrs.Gjerde and Mrs. Ratajesak work with our graduates as they are ready to step out into the real world and take their place as the next generation of dreamers, builders, and leaders. We have a few Seniors that are preparing to join the military upon graduation. We are working closely with our Seniors in helping them with their ”Post Graduation Plans” as they prepare to transition into the real world of work and adulthood.
As we near the completion of Senior’s last high school semester, many of them are already stepping out into the real world as they gain employment, take college classes, and assume adult responsibilities; they deserve a big SHOUT OUT!
Many of our seniors have been with ICA since middle school, so it has been a real pleasure, and sometimes a real challenge to get to where they are now. We still have a lot of hard work to do, but together we will get there. We look forward to the last part of our shared journey as we get them across the graduation finish line.
Graduation is WEDNESDAY MAY 25, 2025 at Maverick Stadium in Adelanto, California.
All seniors please make sure you come into ICA and let our staff take your yearbook photo, this will be put into the yearbook.

Oh, the joys of Spring! As we head into a new month, it is time to keep pushing forward. April will quickly give way to May and then we will finish up our year. As the flowers begin to bloom, the snow melts to produce fresh springs of water, and the days grow longer and longer as the Sun remains high in the sky, this is the time of year that students should begin to show their best. Like a seed planted in the ground, now it is the time to burst forth and show the world the beauty of your academic progress. Let’s finish the year with the same energy and passion as when we began so many months ago. I am so proud of all of my students for growing in knowledge and maturity. It’s SPRING! It’s time to shine! Remember, what you plant is what you grow. Plant good seeds and you grow good things.
