every student gets Book & Math Packs for the summer!!!

Summer Family Connections - We are excited to be sending home each of our students with a bright blue bag filled with some engaging literacy and math materials to support them over the summer. These materials are for your family to keep. Indian Prairie utilized Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds (ESSER) to provide these resources and create some plans to stay connected with families over the summer. A letter from Dr. Talley is included in your child's bag. His letter highlights additional information on some virtual connection opportunities we are also providing for students this summer. We hope your family enjoys and benefits from these materials.
