Hello Indian Run Families,
We hope you are having a great day! Fall is in the air and October is jam packed with some amazing opportunities for our students.
Monday (10/11) kicks off our Book Fair which will run from October 11th-22nd. Mrs. Ullmer has been working hard to get the library ready for an amazing Book Fair experience for our students. Thank you Mrs. Ullmer for all your hard work! Click this Book Fair Link to shop online with your child.
We have our first round of parent-teacher conferences on Thursday (10/14). If you have not yet set up a time and you'd like to meet with your child's teacher, please reach out to set up a time.
Just a reminder that we have no school on Friday (10/15). Our staff will be working on professional development dedicated to work around diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Please reach out if there is anything we can be doing to better support! Indian Run is truly a special place and we just love working here! Our students and families are just the best and we thank you for your continued support this year!
Have a great weekend!

Are you experiencing economic hardship such as: job loss, death of a family member, sudden move, divorce, health issues, or an unexpected emergency? Dublin City Schools partners with many organizations that can help! An upcoming opportunity is Welcome Warehouse's Adopt-A-Family/Holiday Assistance program in December. If you are interested in holiday assistance, the deadline to let your school counselor know is OCTOBER 22nd, 2021. See attached flier for more information.
Fall Harvest Parties
We are excited to be able to host classroom parties this year! IRE will have these on October 29th.
If you are interested in supporting your classroom teacher, please reach out to them directly.
How could you help? Share arts, crafts, activities, ideas, etc. to make for a fun Harvest Party.
Food will not be consumed at the parties. PTO will be sending home small goodie bags to all students.
Limited volunteers: 1 per classroom, to support the parties.
To mitigate the spread of COVID, we will not include costumes or a costume parade this year.
