Hello Indian Hills Community,

The past two weeks we had successful Parent/Teacher conferences.  We hope you had a chance to come and meet with your child's teacher.  The Story Cupboard Book Fair was also a huge success. Our great librarian Ms. Christian was able to earn over $2000 in proceeds from books sold that she uses to buy books for the library. Thank you to Ms. Christian and everyone who volunteered, we really appreciate so many amazing volunteers! Thank you!

Fall Break: This week is Fall Break!  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be full days, with no school on Thursday, Friday and Monday. Enjoy the long weekend!

Volunteer Hours need to be reported  Please report any and all volunteer hours to Brooke Murdock at brookeamurdock@gmail.com.  Brooke compiles these hours and reports them to the district.  These hours are important because the district uses this information to asses the extent of community involvement, determine the types of services rendered by volunteers, and provide data which is important in maintaining the financial support of contributors.

Principal's Message

Dear Indian Hills Community:

It’s hard to believe that we are already into fall, but what a great start to the year! The Fun Run was a huge success. Not only did our kids and families work hard raising funds for our school but we had a blast running, stretching with the DJ, and just being outside with friends and family. The weather was perfect too. I am not sure how the PTA pulled that part off too but what a day! 

Our kids are working hard and learning many new and challenging concepts.  Our talented teachers are getting our kids into books and for our younger grades, they are cracking the code of letter sounds, sight words, spelling, etc. It’s exciting to be a part of this learning. Reading just makes our lives better! Thank you families for reading each night with your children. It makes a huge difference.

We are also working hard in math, science, and social studies too. The list is too long to name all of it but we have 6th graders being challenged by rates and ratios in math. 4th graders producing Sway presentations. Hands-on Science is investigating our local creeks and tributaries for similarities and differences in aquatic life, and we are already getting many volunteers helping out with Ms. Bonner. This is much appreciated, parents! Moreover, our art classes are producing refrigerator-hanging-worthy work. It is so much fun to go into these classes and see what our kids can do. Thank you, IHE community to your commitment to enriching the lives of our children!

 

Best Regards,
