Redistricting Information

Our elementary schools are excited to begin welcoming students being redistricted to their new school community. Principals will be visiting schools for a brief meet and greet with their new students during the weeks of May 15th and May 22nd. We look forward to this opportunity to begin building relationships with our future students and to share more about our school.

We understand that some families may not have shared with their child yet that they will be attending a new school next year. In the event you would like to opt your child out of this meet and greet, please contact your current principal by May 10th.

We will continue to reach out to families by sharing our newsletters this spring and look forward to welcoming you and your child to our building for the 2023-2024 school year with some beginning of the year activities. Please check your 2023-2024 school’s website for important dates and relevant information.

We look forward to partnering with you to support the growth and success of your child.

Student Council News

At the beginning of April, our Student Council voted to spend $350 on a donation of wish list items for In-Pact in Crown Point. Their website states, “In-Pact, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Public Charity dedicated to helping individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities achieve independence and reach their full potential.” With our Student Council funds, we were able to purchase art supplies, games, and even a slip and slide for them.
