    Clifford visits during American Education Week


    November 16, 2018


    Message from our Principal

    As if we didn’t have enough going on this week, Mother Nature decided to throw us all a curveball.  Despite having to navigate the wintery weather, we had a week full of wonderful experiences for our students.  Our fifth graders honored America’s Veterans by walking in the Media Veteran’s Day Parade. The book fair was in full swing.  Parent visitations occured throughout the week. 1st and 2nd grade students participated in the annual Friendship Feast and we celebrated our November birthdays at Birthday Bash.  Enjoy the weekend and we will see you all at parent teacher conferences.


    From the Office

    The Scholastic Book Fair is now open through 6 p.m. on Tuesday, November 20th.  Students will shop with their class as indicated on the schedule that was sent home.  Parents are invited to come to shop with their child, shop online, or shop during conferences.  The online book fair extension runs through Monday, November 26th. All books ordered through the online extension will be shipped to school free of charge & should arrive in early December.  It’s a perfect way to support Indian Lane & get some shopping done. Payment can be cash, check payable to RTMSD, credit card, or Scholastic eWallet. For all the details, please visit the website.  


    Parent Teacher Conferences are Monday, November 19th & Tuesday, November 20th.  Sign-up Sheets are now available online.


    The Holiday Extravaganza is Saturday, December 1st from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. - Volunteers & donations are still needed.


    Indian Lane’s Bobcat Pride Breakfasts are a great opportunity to visit with family & friends and, of course, get a picture with our favorite Bobcat.  Spots are still available for the remaining months. If you were scheduled for the November 16th breakfast, please choose another month & sign up online.


    Girls on the Run is an amazing opportunity for 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade girls at Indian Lane.  Girls on the Run will meet on Mondays and Thursdays right after school from 3:45-5:15.  Our sessions will start in February and end in May with our 5K run. Registration for this season is NOW OPEN through December 13th.  Don’t miss out on the fun!

    From our School Counselor, Mrs. Hilden

    Words can express how overwhelmed I am by the generosity that was conveyed through the first annual ThanksGiving Tree drive.  We raised $1540 in Giant gift cards!  If you were still planning on participating, feel free to send in a gift card or check out our winter holiday Giving Tree during conferences (details below)!


    Indian Lane also did a tremendous job collecting candy for the CandyCares drive.  We collected 206.4 pounds of candy!!! Next week, this candy will be dropped off to be part of a larger collection that will be distributed to homeless shelters in Delaware County.


    During conferences, the Holiday Giving Tree will be on display outside my office.  If you choose to participate in this drive, you simply take an ornament from the tree, purchase the described gift, wrap it, attach the ornament to the outside of the gift, and return it to me.  I need the purchased gifts back to me by Friday, December 14th so that I can give them to our families in time for the holidays.  For more details, please read the letter from Mrs. Hilden. Thank you for your generosity!
