    November Birthday Bash


    November 13-17, 2017


    Message from our Principal

    It’s hard to believe we are less than a week away from Thanksgiving.  We have accomplished so much this year and next week you all will have the opportunity to sit with our teachers and discuss all of the progress made up to this point.  The teachers are excited to share with you all that your child has learned and what they will be learning in the coming months.  Parent conferences will run Monday night and all day Tuesday.  There is no school for students Tuesday through Friday next week.  Please take the time to enjoy your family and all of the Thanksgiving traditions you may have and make memories.  I am thankful to be the principal of a school that gives so much.  Thank you for all you do and for sending us such a talented and caring group of children.  Happy Thanksgiving.

    It’s time for the Scholastic Book Fair: November 13-21.  Shopping at the book fair is a great way to support Indian Lane.  Last November, the book fair raised over $8,000 for IL.  All classes will visit the book fair during the school day.  Parents are welcome any time.  The book fair will also be open during conferences for parents.  Purchases can be made online through November 27th.

    From our School Nurse, Mrs. LaRose

    Every year, all students have different screenings that are done in the nurse’ office.  Referral letters are sent home when students don’t pass vision (grades k-5) or hearing (grades k-3) screens.  This year, ALL students will be getting a letter informing you of their height, weight, and BMI percentage.  The letter itself was developed by Penn State and is the letter that the PA Department of Health would like us to use.  Some grades have already been screened, and you will get the letter at conferences.  If you don’t get the letter, it will arrive later in the year.  As always, call the nurse’s office with any questions.


    From our School Counselor, Mrs. Hilden

    I would like to dedicate my next few Friday posts to organization.  Some of our kids have no problem in this realm, but many do!  When I teach organization as a skill, one strategy I introduce is called the “one touch rule”.  The basic concept of this rule is that when you bring something into the house or when you pick something up, you only touch it once.  Therefore, this object (shoes, backpacks, finished homework) needs to land in its final destination once it is picked up.  Living by the “one touch rule” can help us reduce clutter and remember where important belongings are!  While this is a concept that is written about frequently from an adult perspective, here is a blog about getting your kids on board: Getting Your Kids On Board with the One Touch Rule
