Note from Dr. Wagner (Mr. Timmins returns on February 13!)
It is February 1 - do you know where your resolutions are? Many of us set new goals at the start of the new year. We have a clean slate to start a new good habit or end a bad one. In our homerooms we have set new goals for the class and are working on achieving them. One can see evidence of this every day and it is just another way that shows how Indian Grove is a great place to learn.

We need your input! If you have not done so already, please participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Parent and Guardian Survey. Your responses will remain confidential and will not be connected to the identity of you or your child.
Survey results will help us to better understand the conditions at your child’s school and to guide improvement. For the survey to be validated, we need at least 20% of our parents to take the survey.
Visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ to participate. Or use the QR code above.
Thank you for your support!
