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,


Tom Luthy
