Indy Learning Center, Grades K-8
Welcome to the Hoosier Academy Newsletter
Welcome back from winter break! We are excited to begin the new semester with our students and families! I hope you were able to find some rest and relaxation time with friends and family. We are beginning a new semester, and all students begin with a fresh start - let's work together to ensure the academic, behavioral, and social success of our students. We have some new implementations this semester, and you can read about those below. Please don't hesitate to contact the school if you ever have concerns or questions regarding your student.

The Power of Yet
What does it mean to educate the "whole child"? This has been the essential question of our staff’s Multi Tiered System of Support (MTSS) professional development work for the past month. Our team has been completing professional development to help us understand that educating the whole child is not just teaching them the Indiana standards or national standards associated with our core curriculum, but teaching and supporting both behavioral and emotional needs. To learn more about MTSS, please click on the following link.
In January, our team will begin constructing a school wide Intervention Matrix for literacy, math, and behavioral/emotional support. Think of this as a menu of interventions that our teachers can refer to based upon the individual learning needs of our students. This work has led to our staff developing a growth mindset. Please take some time to view The Power of Yet video. Take the MTSS Challenge! Please send me an email at email@example.com to let me know that you are receiving our newsletters and your reaction to The Power of Yet video.
