Principal's Message

Hello Indian Run Families,

Today marks our 100th day of school! We had a blast today and some of us even dressed up like we were 100 years old just for some extra fun.

The school year is flying by and we are having a blast! Today we had a fun, building wide, 100 second dance party to celebrate all the amazing things we have accomplished this year. Our students are growing and we couldn't be more proud of what they do both in and out of the classroom.

Thank you for your continued support and for sharing your children with us. They teach us something new every day and continue to spread kindness throughout the building which is truly heartwarming to see.

As always, please reach out if we can support in any way!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Amber and Marty
