December Newsletter

What's Happening at Indian Crest...

We hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing Thanksgiving Break. We are grateful for our school community who support our students in their academic, social, and emotional growth. This newsletter highlights some November happenings as well as upcoming events for December.

Lost & Found

We have a large quantity of items in our lost & found, lunchboxes, water bottles, sweatshirts, and sneakers. If your child has lost anything this year they can visit the lost & found during lunch to claim their items. We will donate any items left after December 22nd.

Report Cards

Report Cards went live November 15th and are available on Home Access Center. Students who received a failing grade in a core subject area also had a report mailed home. The second marking period is well underway and ends on January 26th.

Students of the Quarter

We celebrated the Students of the Quarter prior to Thanksgiving break with a breakfast in their honor. Joining us at the breakfast were parents, and teachers who shared a little about each student and why they were chosen by Team. Students were recognized for academic success, leadership in and out of the classroom, getting along well with peers, and kindness. We are very proud of our students of the quarter and congratulate them on this accomplishment.

Students of the Quarter:

Team Discovery - Caitlin Thomas, Melsar Arita

Team Endeavor - Caylee DeSimone, Ethan Pen
