We publish the Sapphire and Pearl Compendium, a magazine of student poetry, enter contests and submit poetry for publication in magazines and anthologies.
á ICS Book Club—The ICS Book Club is open to readers in grades 6, 7 and 8. Every month, we choose a work of popular young adult fiction, read it, and have a luncheon where we discuss the book. We choose stories from a number of genres and styles, and learn about ourselves and others through our reading and discussions.
