Principal's Message

Hello Indian Run Families,

We hope you have enjoyed our last 2 snow days! Hopefully you and your family found the right balance between rest/relaxation and fun in the snow :)

Please see below for our weekly updates. As always, please let us know if we can help in any way.

Have a wonderful winter weekend,

Amber and Marty
