Parent Newsletter

December 2019

Hello Parents!

Thank you for taking the time to read our parent newsletter. We will have one released each month to keep you in the loop of current and upcoming events happening in our school. We hope that you enjoy the information that is presented.

Teacher Spotlight!

My name is Megan Fitzgerald and I teach 4th and 5th grade language arts at ILH! As a language arts teacher, I get to guide children through explorations of their world through the power of books! I graduated from Butler University in May 2019 with a degree in Elementary Education and Mild Intervention Special Education. I grew up in Dublin, Ohio with my parents, two younger sisters, and two energetic labrador retrievers, but I fell in love with Indianapolis while going to Butler. In my free time I love spending time hiking or kayaking at Eagle Creek, doing yoga, reading books, and spending time with friends. I became interested in teaching through my time serving in children's ministry programs and Sunday School at my church and that was further confirmed through my time as a camp counselor. I love the joy, curiosity, resiliency, and love of learning that kids have. Getting to build connections and relationships with students is the best part of my job! I chose to spend my first year teaching at Invent Learning Hub because of their focus on brain centered learning and social and emotional growth (hub time!). ILH strives to become a second family for kids and teachers and that is important to me! Additionally, I love that students get to explore real life projects and problem solving through design thinking and makerspace!

Important Reminders

  • Attendance matters so much! Please make sure your child is at school every day on time!
  • If your child is getting chili at school please have them wear a long sleeved t-shirt under their uniform shirt. Students cannot wear jackets at school unless they have the school logo.
  • We need all parents on class dojo! It is a great tool for communicating with the school. If you need help setting yours up please stop by the office!
  • We are still enrolling students! If you know anyone wanting a school tour please have them call or stop by the office.

Special Thanks!

Thank you Olivet Missionary Baptist Church for providing Thanksgiving meals for 40 of our families.

Popcorn Fridays

Every Friday, the ILH staff will host a popcorn sale for our students. Students who have no office referrals for the week and would like to participate can pay $1 for one item (popcorn or Juice) or $2 for both. Purchased items are delivered to the students in their evening hubs. The money that is raised from popcorn sales will be used to support all of the needs of the students in our school.
