Insight - November 2020

A message from Dr. Fries, principal

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome! I am thrilled to be a part of the Insight Community!

Congratulations to all the students who received an award! We are very proud of all of you. If you did not receive one, please work a little harder so that your name will be on one at the next awards ceremony.

I have been popping in classrooms and love what I am seeing. Students, you are doing a fabulous job attending your classes! Please continue to log in on time and participate with your teacher.

There is only a few weeks left until the end of the grading period. Please make sure you are helping students complete their lessons, attend their connect sessions and complete MindPlay and Ascend requirements.

Please feel free to reach out to me at or 317-372-0639.
