Principal's Message

Hello Indian Run Families,

We are in the home stretch! We have officially made it to the last week of school. This year has flown by! It has been nothing short of amazing to see the growth our students have made this year. We are so proud of them and of all their accomplishments this year. IRE is a special, special place thanks to our amazing students! We love them!

Just a reminder that next week is a bit different. Thursday is the last day for our KG students and Friday we dismiss at 12:25pm for grades 1-5. If you have any questions as we round out the year, please let us know.

Have a great weekend IRE!

Amber and Marty

Quote of the week:

The only way to do great work is to love what you do.
