Welcome to a brand new school year!!

Please have your child arrive on time for school. Remember, first bell rings at 7:30 a.m. Students are tardy to class if they are not in their classrooms by 7:40 a.m.

Please use School Dismissal Manager to report how your child goes home. You can also use it to report absences or late arrivals due to appointments. You can also call the Attendance Line at 317-594-4840 to report an absence. If you need help, please call Stacy or Bonnie in office.

Hooray! The next few weeks classes will begin visiting and checking out books in the library. We will review book care procedures including:

  • Don’t eat or drink when reading a book.
  • Keep your books away from pets.
  • Keep your books in a safe place.
  • Use a bookmark to mark your place.

We would LOVE to have help in the library. If you are interested in helping out in the library this school year, please visit and answer a few questions about the areas in the library in which you would like to help. We would greatly appreciate help shelving books, labeling books, or help checking out kindergarten/first grade classes. Please keep in mind that to volunteer you will need to have a background check on file with the school. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Carrie Sturges (Teacher Librarian) at Thank you!
