Principal's Message

Hello Indian Run Families,

IRE is the best building around and it's because of our amazing students and families! Our students continue to work hard in and out of the classroom and we love seeing the growth they are making. We are so proud of our students! We had fun celebrating Valentine's Day in our classrooms today and continue to be impressed with how kind our students are to one another. They exemplify our motto of what begins here will change the world!

We have many updates below. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns! We hope you have a great Super Bowl weekend and enjoy some of the great commercials Sunday night!

Have a great weekend!

Amber and Marty
