Dare to Dream!

Empowering World Class Leaders and Life-Long Learners!

Great First Week!

It is hard to believe that we are finishing our first full week of school! Thank you so much for your support as we put routines in place. Traffic is, for the most part, going smoothly and our students are learning the routines in the halls, classrooms and cafeteria. You are doing a great job of getting your Stallions here before 7:40 so that they are in class when the bell rings & ready to go!

Important Information:

  • Please remember the speed on the back drive is 5 mph. We have also had several cars entering through the exit. This is very dangerous! The entrance is at the intersection of Indina Hills and Palmbrook Drive. Be sure to look out for our crossing guard & walkers!
  • Our first Friday assembly is tomorrow morning. Because this is a whole school assembly and our cafeteria will be full, we ask that parents not attend. We will have separate assemblies for grades K-2 and 3-5 to which you will be personally invited to celebrate with your Key Stallions. We will introduce our theme of Dare to Dream and have Dr. Pressley, Chief of Learning and Innovation as our guest speaker. Ask your children what they learned! Please have them at school no later than 7:35 as we will begin the assembly promptly at 7:40. Students should go to class to drop off their backpacks and then come straight down to the cafeteria.
  • All Stallions are invited to celebrate our weekly Spirit days. On Fridays, show your school spirit by wearing Sommer shirts, and on Wednesdays, promote education by wearing your favorite College team shirt!
