If your child is absent for any portion of the ILEARN, we will administer a make-up test. The ILEARN window is open through May 13.
Our annual Career Day will take place on Friday, May 6th in the Main Gym during Advisory classes. We are looking for volunteers to come in to share their career/professional experiences with our students. This event will take place from 10:50am-12:30pm if you are able to volunteer your time! The students really look forward to this as it is an opportunity for them to see what future careers are available to them.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Mrs. Doolin at email@example.com or (219) 663-2173, ext. 13103. We have also included a link to complete a Volunteer Release Form that would need to be completed by volunteers in advance of the event.

4.8.22 – Enthusiasm
Leaders inspire others with enthusiasm and a genuine ability to show passion for what they do. Rather than concentrating on the things that may not be going right, leaders focus on solutions to make things right and succeed. Leaders are willing to see the silver lining in every experience and have an optimistic attitude that does not entertain negativity. When people respect you as a person, they admire you. When they respect you as a friend, they love you. When they respect you as a leader, they follow you.
