Hoosier Road Elementary School's Newsletter for 10-6-17
Message from the Principal
As I am sure you are aware, we have already had an eventful year here at Hoosier Road Elementary! Hoosier Road students have made an impact locally by literally collecting over a ton of pasta during the 2017 Pasta Bowl. This was more than any other school in our District…including both high schools! They also made an impact nationally by organizing an enormous effort to assist Braeburn Elementary in Houston, Texas after being displaced during hurricane Harvey. Our semi-trailer filled with school supplies and personal items was received with awe and admiration by the staff and students at Braeburn. Now our students will have an opportunity to form global relationships. We are in the process of forming a partnership with Xing Zhi Experimental Elementary in Ningbo, China. I will be traveling to China next week to visit our sister school and make our partnership official. I will be sharing photos and videos during my trip with classrooms at Hoosier Road. Upon returning we will spend the remainder of the school year building our relationship. I am so excited to see what the students at Hoosier Road Elementary will do on a global scale!
