Mrs. Yoder's Class

Fall Break Week: October 19-23

Ritchey Woods Study Trip

Our first study trip to Ritchey Woods is Wednesday, October 21, 2015. Please make sure your child brings a completely disposable sack lunch and dresses appropriately for the weather. If your child will need a sack lunch from school, please let me know no later than Monday, October 19th.

Thank you to Mrs. Belford and Mrs. Linn for chaperoning this study trip! If you have any questions, please let me know. It should be a fun day full of learning!

Art Donations

Students will be working in art class to create a paper mache piggy bank. Ms. Meyer is asking for help collecting the recycled supplies necessary for the project. She is in need of empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Please send items in a bag with your child to school and we will make sure they are delivered to Ms. Meyers. Thank you for your support!

Report Cards

Report Cards are available for you to view on Skyward. If you have any problems accessing your child's report card, please let me know. If you are having any issues with Skyward, please call the office at 317-594-4310.

Liger Mile

Great job to all of the students that ran in the Liger Mile. It was great to watch all of you. I am very proud of.

Vision Screening

On November 16th, 1st grade students at Thorpe Creek will be given a vision screening. Dr. Jim Daugherty and Dr. Jillian Pall from Fishers Eye Care will be doing the vision screens for all of our 1st grade students throughout the district. There is no cost for the vision screening and you will be notified if your student’s results indicate a concern.

Field Trip Volunteers

Not every field trip volunteer has completed the anti-bullying video on the TCE website. This is required if you plan to attend the field trips (or come help or visit at school). Please click the link below to complete the training if you have not done so. Thank you!
