Ida Jew Academy Parent Newsletter


Ida Jew Academy

Dear IJA Families,

We began the our first full week back with a commitment to being present on the first day back to school! Our attendance rate of 90% for the first day back also communicated our school community effort to to be at school on time, all the time, each and every day (Surprise on Friday). We also continue teach gratitude and how giving back to our school community helps strengthen our school community. Our teachers/staff have also broadened this focus in the classroom by reinforcing essential academic skills/conversation in our core subjects as well as our speciality programs.

Reminder: Reading is a life long Practice

Please make some time this break to make reading an important practice by visiting our local libraries (Next to Robert Sanders)

Note: Our parent newsletter includes some important information about upcoming events/ announcements and communication. We will also be regularly updating information on our facebook page, web site and school marquee.

Thank you,

Gilbert Rodriguez
