We’ve had an amazing time celebrating the launch of the Strategic Plan with our community! The block party in Brightwood, Bowl-a-rama at Expo Bowl on the South side, inspiring Educator Excellence symposium at Marian University, and the entertaining Arts & Ed Mixer at the Artsgarden have been fantastic opportunities for members of our myIPS family to connect. Check out some of the highlights from our fun events in the gallery below:

Galleria.run(‘#galleria41849’, {

this.bind(‘thumbnail’, function(e) {
e.thumbTarget.alt = e.galleriaData.description;
function checkAudioTagSupport() {
var bResult = false;
var myAudio = document.createElement(‘audio’);
if (myAudio.canPlayType) {
var canPlayMp3 = !!myAudio.canPlayType && ” != myAudio.canPlayType(‘audio/mpeg’);
if (canPlayMp3) {
bResult = true;
return bResult
