ICYF Nutrition Banners are in the schools!

November 18th, 2015

The 10 banners featuring Indianola High School seniors are now out in the local school district. There are 2 banners in each elementary school, and 2 more in the Blake Fieldhouse. Be sure to stop and look at them.

The group banner will be rotated through local business throughout the year. If you know of an Indianola business who would be interested in displaying the banner, please contact us.

Thanks again to MRogalla Photography for donating her time and talents to this project, and to the Indianola School District for allowing us to post these in the schools.

ICYF  has partnered with Jennifer DeWall at Nutrition in Motion to create free sports-specific nutrition plans for the Indianola community. To help promote healthy eating habits and good character, we worked with Molly Rogalla and created banners to be rotated around at the local elementary schools featuring Indianola High School seniors. These 10 seniors were nominated by their coaches and teachers as people who demonstrate excellent leadership skills and are great teammates. Individual banners featuring these students will be posted as they are made available. Be sure to look for them in the schools, and the group banners in local businesses.

**If you are interested in learning more about this campaign, please contact ICYF, MRogalla Photography, or Nutrition in Motion.**

When is the Blake Fieldhouse available for open gym?

**Mondays-Thursdays 5:45-9:30 pm

Weekends 1-5 pm**

The upper track ONLY is available from 5:30-6:30 am on weekdays, too. (Excluding holidays.)

**Please check our calendar page for school activities that change the start time for open gym (volleyball, basketball, or wrestling events) or events on the weekends that cancel open gym (tournaments, craft fairs).**

On weeknights, various local athletic leagues hold practices on courts 2, 3 and 4 at different times throughout the evening. Court 1 (Shull Family Court) will remain available for Open Gym. If no practice is happening on a court, that space can be used for Open Gym as well. Please limit games on Court 1 to half court so more people are able to use the space.

Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult during open gym. Open Gym includes access to the upper track.

Schedule changes will be sent out on our Facebook page, Twitter account, and to our email address list for open gym updates (sign up form found below).

The Chris Street Memorial Gymnasium, also located at the Indianola Middle School, is managed by the school and open at various times throughout the year.
