New Year, New Beginnings!

Welcome back, everyone! Our year starts with the end in mind as we consider how every student will experience success, along with meeting end of year academic and behavioral expectations at Indian Lake Elementary. Please remember Indian Lake Elementary is your school and a place for both students and families to be successful. We are eager to maintain a school community dedicated to providing a nurturing, safe and challenging learning environment for all. The Indian Lake Elementary staff invites you to actively participate in your child’s education. We know when parents/guardians and school staff work closely together, student achievement increases.

Starting off the year by putting first things first; attendance is extremely important for student success, along with arriving on time to start the day off right. Please keep in touch with your child’s teacher and ask questions when you are unsure of something; this is a proactive measure which maintains positive rapport. Most importantly, take every opportunity to work with your child in everyday learning situations, to encourage reading, and discuss what s/he is learning at school.

To support our belief that students will have ownership and vision for their education, we have established a positive behavior support system at Indian Lake Elementary. Please watch in newsletters and on this webpage for monthly sharing about P.A.W.S. (Purpose * Always respectful/responsible * Worthy * Safety). Monthly assemblies will be taking place to celebrate the students’ behavior, and provide students with motivation to demonstrate ‘Paws-itively’ excellent behavior! SO excited for this initiative and those teachers/staff involved to make it happen!

We would like to welcome our new PTSO board! This group meets on a monthly basis, please check the schedule on our website calendar or join them on Facebook. A PTSO bulletin board is located in our lobby where you will find up to date information, and ways to get involved. There are many opportunities for parents to connect through PTSO, and all are encouraged to attend these meetings.

We are all looking forward to a positive 2016-2017 school year! Join us on this journey…
