It's that time of year again... Standardized testing for all grade levels (except Seniors). Just like with Final's Week, be sure your child gets plenty of rest and arrives at school by 7:50 am each morning so they can be ready to begin testing promptly at 8 o'clock.

Although the events of the days will change, school hours will remain the same.

Adopt-A-Highway & Campus Cleanup - March 24th

As a community contributing school, we want our students to take pride in their campus and in our city. So, on March 24th, after SATs, we will get some gloves, trash bags, and grabbers, and clean up our community! The younger students will remain on and around campus while the older students will head out to Roosevelt Avenue to clean up our "Adopt-A-Highway" stretch of road.

If you would like to volunteer with us, please email me at

Athletics Declaration

Each year, ILH schools must declare their intent to participate in sports before the school year begins. The 2020-2021 school year declarations are due by April. If your child is interested in playing a sport next year, we need a commitment. Over the years, our school has had the opportunity to participate in ILH basketball, volleyball, cross-country, track, and bowling under our own school name, however, if we are unable to declare enough student participation, that may not be the case. Please talk with your child to see if they want to be a part of any of our sports teams and let Mrs. Powell, ( know as soon as possible.
