Principal's Message

Hello Indian Run Families,

On Wednesday, May 4th, we have our Spring Fling Field Day thanks to our amazing PTO! Please send your child to school in tennis shoes/closed-toe shoes and feel free to bring a water bottle. Thanks to all the families who volunteered to help out. We are looking forward to some fun!

We will also have our FIRST whole school assembly in quite some time on Friday, May 6th, as we root on our 5th grade students in our very own IRE Dodgeball tournament. Should be LOTS of FUN!

As we enter the last month of the school year we look forward to finishing strong. Thanks for your continued partnership! Please let us know if you need any support or we can help in any way.

Have a great weekend!

Amber and Marty

2022 - 2023 Class Placements

  • Each year we begin the process of creating class assignments for the coming year. We gather parent and teacher input, and then balance classes by considering ten different categories: language needs, special education requirements, gifted learning, advanced math, behavior concerns, student numbers, teacher fit, gender, and academic history.
  • We encourage you to fill out this form to provide any input or insight you might have. If you feel your child’s teacher already knows or understands your input and perspective, there is no need to fill out this form. Forms due by May 6, 2022.
