ICS Press Release: Fundraiser [May 5] & Walk-Through [Apr 29]

Special Charter School Coming Soon to Medlock Community

New neighbors representing 40 countries excited to bring global experiences to Medlock

New friends representing 40 different countries and are coming soon to the Medlock neighborhood. The International Community School, a K-6 charter school that has served refugee, immigrant and local children in DeKalb County for ten years, will be relocating to the building formerly used by Medlock Elementary School beginning with the 2012-2013 school year.  Having occupied space behind the Avondale Pattillo United Methodist church in Avondale Estates since 2002, the International Community School teaches some 400 students who speak 25 different languages.

The school will host its annual auction gala event to raise funds for the upcoming move to Medlock. The 2012 auction theme, “Sojourn to South Africa,” will feature a live auction, silent auction and entertainment, including music and a soccer ball juggling demonstration performed by students.  Come meet your new neighbors and celebrate with ICS next Saturday, May 5 for this special event at The Carter Center.  Tickets are $75 each and must be purchased before 9am next Monday, April 30.
