Note From the Principal

Thank you! Eagles had a great time celebrating a week of kindness through spirit days and donating to the Noblesville Schools weekend meal pack. A big thank you for supporting the Noblesville Schools weekend meal pack program food drive. The total amount of fruit cups collected will be shared with classrooms soon! We truly appreciate the kind and caring heart of this community. We will carry our kindness work into March as it is our character trait for the month.

WRE Rock, Paper, Scissors Champion. Congratulations 2nd Grader, Will!

School Start Times. Our car rider line is running smoothly since the completion of the construction at the front of the building.

  • The drop-off zone is between the cones with adults present. Once you're stopped between the cones your child must exit the vehicle. Please do not wait and pull forward to the front of the building as this causes a great deal of congestion.
  • The car rider line begins when an adult is present at 7:35am and concludes promptly at 7:50am. Students arriving after 7:50am will be counted as tardy.

Masks on Buses. Per federal guidelines, masks are still required for students and staff on school buses. Please remember to send your child with a mask for their ride on the bus. Masks are optional inside the school.

Soaring with you,

Ms. VanDermark

Panorama Student Survey

Grades 3-5

Panorama Student Survey

Noblesville Schools is committed to providing a great school experience for all students. To help achieve this we will use a platform called Panorama to survey students in grades 3-5 during the dates of February 28 - March 11, 2022. The Panorama survey seeks to gather input on topics like school climate and culture, emotion regulation, self-management, social awareness and belonging. When students feel connected to their school environment, they are more engaged and increasingly successful in both academic and social achievements. More information on the survey can be found here.

Although the survey is not mandatory, student perceptions will provide valuable insights for future planning, support and programming. Results will be used to determine needs based on trends for our school.

If you wish for your student to opt-out, you can submit an opt-out form. The survey is voluntary and students are welcome to choose an alternate activity (read, homework, etc.) at the time the survey is given.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact our district counseling coordinator, Dana Nelson at (317) 773- 3171 or

Thank you for your support of this important opportunity to best serve students and our school community.

PTO News
