A Message From Our Principal

Hello to my IBES family! It's so wonderful to be back in school, seeing the sweet faces of students who were missed over the summer. As we begin our third week of school, things are ramping up. Routines and procedures have been taught and practiced, so now teaching and learning are in full swing! And I see evidence of it in every classroom. Students and teachers are working hard, and it shows!

Contruction is not complete at IBES, but it is winding down. There are still some roof issues being addressed, and the painters are finishing up small projects. Our ceilings are in place, and it is making a wonderful difference in our classrooms!

Open House is tonight, Tuesday, 9/6/22, 5:30 - 6:30! Teachers have lots of information to share. This is a time for you to hear straight from your child's teacher what the expectations are in the classroom and throughout the school campus. Please be seated in the gym when you arrive. I will introduce teachers and share my own agenda with you briefly before you visit your child's classroom. Please do not bring your children. I look forward to seeing you tonight!

PTO - There will be a PTO meeting immediatly following Open House tonight in the gym. If you'd like to hear what our AMAZING PTO is doing and what they have planned for students and teachers in the upcoming school year, please stick around after Open House. One of the reasons our school is so amazing is because of the unrivaled participation of our parents, relatives, and community in our school. If you'd like to be a part of the amazing group that makes it all happen, you can get information during the PTO meeting after Open House tonight.

Spirit Shirt Sales

Order forms have gone home! This is the last chance to order spirit shirts for the 2022-2023 school year! Order forms and money are due no later than Tuesday, September 13th!!

Just A Reminder

**On Wednesdays, they may pay $1.00 per garment. On this day, they may wear a shirt that is not uniform or spirit shirt. Outfit must be school appropriate and follow what is in our handbook.

** On Fridays, students may pay $1.00 to wear out of uniform bottoms ONLY. They must wear a regular school uniform or spirit shirt on Fridays.

Please be sure that shorts are appropriate length!! Shorts must be longer than fingertips!!

Car Riders

Many of you pick up your children in the afternoon at IBES! This results in our car rider line being unusually long and it becomes dangerous when some of you have to wait along the highway. Please be mindful of the space you leave between you and the vehicle in front of you. Please don't leave large spaces between vehicles during pick up. Also, please leave enough room for our buses to get in and out of the driveways each afternoon. Thank you for your patience and understanding!!!

Sweatshirts and Jackets

Please be sure to label these items with your child's name!! They are often left behind and it helps us return it to your child!!

Box Tops for Education

Box Tops for education still helps the PBIS program at Indian Bayou Elementary. However, the program has changed. We no longer clip the Box Tops from the grocery items. You must register for the program and scan your receipts in order for IBES to get credit. Please read the flyer below!! Thank you for your support!
