Hello Parents!

Thank you for taking the time to read our parent newsletter. We will have one released each month to keep you in the loop of current and upcoming events happening in our school. We hope that you enjoy the information that is presented.

Teacher Spotlight

Hi, my name is Joanna Ireland. I have lived on the southeast side of Indy my whole life. I'm currently working on my Masters in Education through Marian University.

I have worked in the field of education for the past twenty years. I taught preschool for fifteen years before joining Indianapolis Public Schools. The last few years I worked at Art With a Heart before joining the ILH team. I'm enjoying teaching Kindergarten in my neighborhood.

My husband and I have been married for 27 years and have four children. I enjoy being in nature, hiking, gardening and cooking.

Important Reminders

  • Attendance matters so much! Please make sure your child is at school every day on time!
  • If your child is getting chili at school please have them wear a long sleeved t-shirt under their uniform shirt. Students cannot wear jackets at school unless they have the school logo.
  • We need all parents on class dojo! It is a great tool for communicating with the school. If you need help setting yours up please stop by the office!
  • We are still enrolling students! If you know anyone wanting a school tour please have them call or stop by the office.

Student Pride!

If you are out and about on the south east side of Indy, you may have noticed the "Proud ILH Family" signs that are popping up around the neighborhood! If your family hasn't received a yard sign to show you are a proud supporter of ILH visit our office to get one today!

Popcorn Fridays

Every Friday, the ILH staff will host a popcorn sale for our students. Students who have no office referrals for the week and would like to participate can pay $1 for one item (popcorn or Juice) or $2 for both. Purchased items are delivered to the students in their evening hubs. The money that is raised from popcorn sales will be used to support all of the needs of the students in our school.
