Principal's Message

Hello Indian Run Families,

Today was a fun day at IRE! Our 5th grade class hosted their Ecosystem Museums for many of our younger students and it was amazing to see how sweet and kind our students were to each other! Our 5th graders really demonstrated some great leadership and taught our younger students about ecosystems and organisms. IRE is a special place and today was a reminder of that!

Next week is Read Across America Week where we will be celebrating our love for reading! Make sure to ask your students about some of the fun reading activities that take place next week. We will also have a Spirit Week to through some additional fun in the mix. Take a look below for what each day will look like.

Let us know if you have any questions or we can help in any way!

Have a great weekend!

Amber and Marty

Quote of the week:

Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
