Highlights from the week at Indian Lane
November 23 & 24, 2015
Message from our Principal, Mr. Reid
As I reflect on the past week at Indian Lane and with Thanksgiving a few days away, I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for making me feel at home. This past week has given me much to be thankful for. I am thankful to be coming to a school with such a caring and nurturing staff. I am thankful for being given the opportunity to work with the wonderful children that attend Indian Lane. I am thankful for seeing the involvement of the parents and their willingness to step up and help the school and their children. I am thankful for Mr. Barry who has led this school up until my arrival and who has provided me with great guidance as I prepare to officially become a Bobcat. I hope that everyone enjoys a few days with their family and friends and celebrate all of your reasons to be THANKFUL!
Mrs. Hatton would like to extend a big THANK YOU to all our parents for supporting this year's Scholastic "Monster" Book Fair. This event is essentially a fundraiser, but it is also so much more. Our book fair provides students with books they can be excited about. Indian Lane also receives "Scholastic Dollars" based on the sales at the book fair. Last year, IL received $8,400 to spend on books, subscriptions, and products available through Scholastic. One priority for spending this money has been to build classroom libraries in all classrooms. Another is to supplement the budget to the IL Library. Every single dollar spent at the book fair contributes to supporting our students. So, again, thank you! We are already looking forward to the Buy One Get One Book Fair promoting "Summer Reading" coming up in May, and we hope you are too.
Don't forget about the Book Fair Online Extension. All titles from the book fair and more are now available online. If you are considering books as gifts this holiday season or missed out on a title at the book fair, please consider shopping through our Online Extension with free delivery to school before the holidays. These purchases contribute to our book fair totals and, therefore, support our students. Mrs. Hatton will contact all parents that order through the online extension via e-mail when the orders are delivered. If items are gifts, parents can pick them up in the main office. If not, they can be delivered to your children at school.
From our Guidance Counselor
Starting on Monday, November 23rd, the Holiday Giving Tree will be on display outside my office. If you would like to purchase an anonymous holiday gift for an Indian Lane family, here is the Giving Tree protocol:
For your convenience, the tree will be displayed during conference but you can also visit us during the school day to take an ornament. If you would like your child to bring home an ornament on Monday, November 30th, please send a brief note saying he or she can do so.
Thank you so much for any help you can give. Indian Lane does a tremendous job with holiday giving and I am proud to keep the tradition going. Happy Holidays to everyone!
From our Student Council
The school store is back! Students can visit the school store to purchase various fun, school supplies on Wednesday mornings from 8:30 to 8:50 in the cafeteria. Item prices range from 25 cents to $1.50.
Student Council is hosting a fundraiser at Chick-fil-A on Thursday, December 10th from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. Come to see teachers and friends while supporting ILES.
From our PTG
Our annual Holiday Extravaganza will be held on Saturday, December 5th from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. here at Indian Lane. Come for breakfast, shopping, decorating pre-ordered gingerbread houses, and more holiday fun. If you signed up for a decorating time at the Holiday Extravaganza, you should have received an email from Mrs. Kutty. If not, please email her at email@example.com. Also, you may still sign up to volunteer or donate items for this event.
Thanks to everyone who came to the PTG meeting this week. The next PTG meeting is December 15th. Hope to see you there!
