New Families: What to Expect Once You Have Been Accepted


  • You are welcome to join us on a school tour if you have not already. We hold tours on select Fridays. Tours may be virtual due to safety factors.
  • You will receive information in the US Mail from our school that includes an invitation to our Spring Fling, our largest annual family event. 
  • Our Welcoming Committee will contact you. Our Welcoming Committee is made up of parents just like you who in the recent past were new to CFI. You will receive personalized contact with the goal of answering your questions and making you feel right at home.


Your school supply list, annual event calendar, and more will be mailed to your home approximately two weeks before the start of school.

You will find out your child’s class placement and meet your child’s teacher during our Ice Cream Social, an event that takes place the week prior to the start of school. Specific information will come in the mail, be posted online, and be sent out via our automated phone messaging system.


It’s never to early to get involved! You are welcome to join us for any of our events. Stay up-to-date and connected by finding us on Facebook and following us on Twitter and Instagram (@IPS_CFI).


We use ManageBac to share important information with our current families including school event calendars, curriculum units, newsletters, menus, report cards, and more. All families are also encouraged to be a part of our Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA).
