    Sign up for a Bobcat Pride Breakfast

    March 20-24, 2017


    Message from our Principal

    Don’t miss out on your chance to attend one of our last two Bobcat Pride Breakfasts of the school year.  There are still spots available if you would like to sign up for Friday, April 21st (20 spots) or Friday, May 19th (22 spots).  The breakfast starts at 8:15 and lasts about thirty minutes.  This is a great opportunity to spend some quality family time together at school while getting fun family photos with our Bobcat mascot.  Check out some of our family photos with the bobcat here.

    From our Classrooms

    Second Grade

    In Writing Workshop, we discovered the characteristics of persuasive writing and are writing opinion letters about our characters.  We completed, reviewed and assessed our Numbers to 1,000 unit in in Math. We shared one of our favorites books with a friend and presented it along with the reasons why we think our friend will enjoy it in Reading Workshop. In Social Studies, we began our Native American unit by being introduced to the origins of Native Americans and their views on using and respecting the natural resources in their different regions.              


    Third Grade

    Third graders are gearing up for the PSSAs for the first time! Our hope is that they are excited to show what they know and are not anxious about the tests. In Science, we began our Solar System unit and students worked in groups to create mission patches and collect data for their planet presentations! In Reading and Writing, we started working on our mini-test prep unit where students learn study and test taking strategies that will be helpful for all future tests. In Word Study, we are working on grammar skills and the students enjoy playing grammar games!


    Fourth Grade

    Fourth grade is continuing to prepare for PSSAs. We have been working on study skills and test taking strategies that will be helpful for all tests. Next week, we will start science review centers where students will spend three weeks rotating between each fourth grade teacher. Students will start the rotation with their homeroom teacher. We will review subjects such as rotation of the earth and sun, types of clouds, the water cycle, electricity and much more!


    Fifth Grade

    In reading, we are continuing to explore different concepts in our Social Issues texts. In writing, we are working hard learning skills to successfully respond to text dependent analysis questions. In math, we have finished Topic 8, and are diving right into Topic 9, dividing fractions. In AMP, we are working on determining surface area of 3-dimensional figures. We are continuing to prepare for the PSSAs. Keep your eyes out for Science Fair information, which will be coming home early next week.


    From our Specialists:


    Mark your calendars! The Art Show is coming! April 6th from 6:00 - 7:30 P.M. There will be art work, games, prizes,dancing and water ice! Hope to see you there!



    Kindergarten & first grade students read Otis by Loren Long & discussed story elements, including personification.  Second and third grade students read I Am A Story by Dan Yaccharino & How This Book Was Made by Mac Barnett.  We discussed the history of stories and the invention of books, as well.  Fourth & fifth grade research project presentations have begun, and they are great!



    Indian Lane’s Got Talent!  During music class on days 1, 2, 3 and 4, we are celebrating “Music In Our Schools Week”.  During this celebration, students in grades 1-4 have had the opportunity to share their musical talents with their class through singing, dancing, moving and playing instruments.  Fifth grade will have their chance to perform in May. An overwhelming number of students have participated so far and the performances have been amazing!  Check out our pics on @ILESMusic

    From our School Nurse, Mrs. LaRose

    When kids are active, their bodies can do the things they want and need them to do.  Regular exercise provides these benefits:

    1. Strong muscles and bones
    2. Weight control
    3. Decreased risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes
    4. Better sleep
    5. A better outlook on life
