Final Stretch

Congratulations! We have made it to the last week of the school year and despite all of the changes and challenges this year, the students have done a fabulous job of learning and growing! We have enjoyed many interactions and discussions with your children and look forward to more adventures in the next year! We hope you have an amazing summer, enjoying some time outside reconnecting with family and friends.

WIDA Access 2.0 Scores

Scores from the WIDA Access 2.0 Language Assessment that was given in February are back! A copy of your student's scores will be sent home with them. We will have a parent meeting in August to discuss the results and determine your child's growth in accessing the English language. IPS will also mail the scores to your home in June. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Fugate at fugatek@myips.org
