    Fifth Grade Celebration


    June 11-15, 2018


    Message from our Principal

    We started the week by celebrating the June and August birthdays at lunch and ended the week with celebrating with the 5th graders at their luncheon.  As the year comes to a close, it is extremely humbling to sit back and look at all the accomplishments of the students at Indian Lane. As I was preparing my speech to close out the 5th grade recognition ceremony, I was amazed at the number of opportunities provided to our students throughout the year.  Many of these opportunities are made through the kind and caring acts of our parents, teachers, and community through volunteering their time, talents, and efforts to benefit our students. As I close out another year as the principal at Indian Lane, I want everyone to know that this is an incredible place that provides you students with a safe and positive learning community that supports all students to become ready, respectful, and responsible individuals.  It is truly my pleasure to work with each and every one of your children on a daily basis. Please have a safe and restful summer. Next week, Monday is a full day and Tuesday and Wednesday are 12pm dismissals.

    Indian Lane Summer Expectations Letter

    In an effort to maintain skills gained throughout the school year and to prepare your child for next school year, please encourage the following summer expectations.


    Read every day!  Some children love to read for hours each day.  That's great! Others may benefit from guidelines to help form the habit of reading.  For summer reading, we recommend a minimum of:

    • 10 minutes a day for incoming first graders,
    • 15 minutes a day for incoming second graders,
    • 30 minutes a day for incoming third, fourth, and fifth graders.

    Summer Reading Resources:

    For tips, suggestions, reading lists, etc. to help encourage summer reading, please visit the RTMSD Summer Reading page.

    To participate in Summer Reading Programs (& log reading time online) at Middletown Free Library, sign up on the MFL website.  Participants can get to do some really fun things at the library.  Don't forget to check out all the cool & FREE programs at MFL over the summer, too.  For more info, check out the 2018 MFL Summer Programs Flyer.  It's awesome!


    It's just as important to keep up math skills over the summer.  Math summer expectations are:

    • Complete the Summer Math Calendar for incoming first graders and second graders.  For printable versions of the calendars, click on the above grade level(s).
    • Master the mission foundations on Kahn Academy Mappers for incoming third, fourth, and fifth graders.  We anticipate this should take about 6 hours (or about 10 minutes per day).  The only way to gain mastery is to spread the work out over the summer weeks.  When logging in, be sure to select "Log in to Kahn Academy using Google." Then, enter your RTMSD Google student account information.  Usernames are student specific & generally contain the students last name then first initial and  For example, Joe Smith's login will be Passwords are "Rtm-" then the student's 5-digit ID number.  For example, if Joe Smith's student ID number is 12345, his password will be Rtm-12345.
    • First through fourth grade students who would like additional practice on Mission Foundations for the next grade level may go to Khan Academy.  The login is the same as above.
    • Please note that logins recently changed from .net to .org for student Google accounts.

    BOOKS ARE NOW DUE!  All books must be returned, replaced, or paid for by the end of the school year.  Please ask your child if he/she has any overdue books. Thanks so much for your help!
