Welcome to Fall
Fall is an amazing time in our elementary schools. The students are beginning to be comfortable in their daily routines, the leaves and the seasons are changing allowing for scientific observations and experiments, fall sports are in full swing, and sightings of pumpkins mean fall and winter holidays are around the corner.
With the changing of the seasons we remind you that the weather in Indiana is always a challenge. Mornings mean coats and heaters while afternoons mean shorts and windows open. Please be sure to pay attention to changes in the weather and send your child to school dressed appropriately.
First nine week report cards come home in the fall. Please be sure to reach out to your classroom teachers if you have questions or concerns. Quality communication is an important part of your child's education.
