PTA Information

Hello Indian Hills families!

We hope you all survived and enjoyed parent-teacher conferences and DEAR Week. Also, the book fair was a great hit! Ms. Christian offers this note of thanks: "Thank you to all the students, parents, and volunteers for making our scholastic book fair a success. We will be able to add new books to the library this spring.  A special thanks to everyone who supported our Books for Bennion book drive. I will deliver their new books this week. Thank You, Ms. Christian."

Indian Hills Night @ Pizza Studio: TOMORROW, Tuesday, March 20, is Indian Hills Night at Pizza Studio! Visit anytime from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Pizza Studio will give BOOT 25 percent of the proceeds! Take a night off cooking and support our school and a local business. Click here for the attached flier.

YEARBOOK ORDERS: Yearbooks are an optional keepsake for the school year. They are typically ordered during registration and back-to-school night. However, if you did not place an order and would like for your student to have a yearbook, we are accepting final orders this week only! Each yearbook is $10. Only students who have ordered and paid for a yearbook will receive them. To place an order, leave a check with the name(s), grade(s), and teacher(s) of your student(s) in an envelope in the office. Final orders are due by FRIDAY, March 23. 

PTA Meeting Minutes & Budget: Monthly PTA meeting minutes and the annual PTA budget will be posted to the PTA website for anyone who might be interested.

Reflections Contest Winners: We are pleased to announce that two students from our school won the Reflections Contest at the state level! Mia Olson won an Honorable Mention in Dance and Parley Krhoun won Merit in Literature. We congratulate these outstanding students!

Box Tops: Keep clipping those Box Tops. Students can return them to the bucket in their classroom or they can be left in the box in the lobby. Thanks for thinking of the pink tabs!

Book Drive: The student government book drive is wrapping up this week. They have received an amazing response! Thank you! Books will be collected through the end of this week. So please send any final donations you have by Friday.

Book Fair Chair, 2018-19 School Year: Organizing is already taking place for the upcoming school year. We are in need of a volunteer to chair the bi-annual book fair. A fair takes place in the fall and in the spring during parent-teacher conferences. The chair will work directly with Ms. Christian to organize volunteers as well as set up and take down. It's a wonderful event and one of the "easier" jobs of PTA. If you have interest in chairing the book fair, please contact Miriam Jenson or Lindsey Stobbe

2018-19 Registration: School registration will take place after spring break. Kindergarten registration is on Friday, April 6, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and whole school registration is on April 13, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Additional information will be sent regarding online forms to fill out. Then plan to stop by the school during these hours to submit forms and receive information for the coming school year. Incoming kindergartners will be given a short assessment, so the incoming kindergartner should attend. 

Art Night:  We continue to collect items for a silent auction. We are also seeking any unused gift cards you might have on hand and can donate. Please contact Becca Moore,

Volunteer Hours: Please remember to submit volunteer hours for each month if you have not recorded them on the form in th lobby. Submit them to Melisa Steele


Thank you!

Students qualifying for an ELP placement have shown that they need an academic program that allows them to move more quickly, work with more complex concepts, and delve more deeply into academic content.

ELP services are available at all district elementary schools, with full-day Magnet classes at Emerson (dual immersion), Hawthorne, and Whittier Elementary schools.
