ICYF would like to take a moment to celebrate a few of the successes the students of Indianola have had recently.
First, a big CONGRATULATIONS to the faculty and students at Indianola High School for being named one of the Best High Schools by US News & World Report.
Thirteen students from IHS were selected to participate in the Iowa All-State Music Festival. The list of students is found at the district’s homepage: http://www.indianola.k12.ia.us/
Seventeen Indianola Middle School students were selected to participate in OPUS Honor Choir this year. Their names can also be found on the district’s homepage: http://www.indianola.k12.ia.us/
The Pride of Indianola Marching Band finished their season after performing at halftime of home football games and traveling to competitions across the region. Videos of their performances are available at http://ihsmusic.wix.com/music#!marching-band/cxks and be sure to follow them on Twitter as well.
The Indianola Boys Cross Country team finished 4th and the Indianola Girls Cross Country team finished 6th at their state qualifying meet.
The Indianola Girls Swim Team finished their first season competing in the new Indianola YMCA with a 3rd place finish in the Metro Conference.
The Indianola Community Youth Foundation (ICYF) made these Indianola Preschool students very happy when ICYF Director Kim Seberg stopped by to donate $1,250 to the Preschool. Additionally, another $1,250 was donated to Indianola Wee Care. The donations came from the proceeds of ICYF’s recently held “Lace Up for Literacy” 5K Walk and Run held in Indianola.
It was the second year for the 5K and participation exceeded expectations. Abbie Blake, co-founder of ICYF, was very pleased with how the community supported the event. “Everyone that participated had a fun day, being active and exercising. But the best part was being able to make a significant contribution back to two organizations that really help to give our youth a head start,” Blake said.
ICYF is a 501(c)3.foundation started by Casey and Abbie Blake who wanted to give back to their community and build on Indianola’s reputation as a community committed to its youth.

During their practice times, the upper track is available to the public. If a basketball court is not reserved for a team to practice, that is open for use. Please be respectful of their practice schedule.
The Chris Street Memorial Gymnasium, also located at the Indianola Middle School, is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to the public from 7-9 pm.
