Indian Lane's Weekly Newsletter
Learning the basics of Bocce in Adaptive Intramurals
October 9-13, 2017
Message from our Principal
Indian Lane is full of life and activity. Nearly all of our clubs have started including some new and exciting clubs this year. Mr. Sikorski has started the Bel Canto Bobcats Club and Bobcat Boom. Mrs. Meile is sponsoring an Arts and Crafts Club for our 1st and 2nd graders. Over 70 students have signed up to participate in this club. Our last new edition to our club offerings is the Adaptive Intramurals program. We have 18 students participating in this club. This club is led by Ms. Edwards, Ms. Parker and Mrs. Barton. Students with disabilities and partner athletes are forming bocce ball unified teams. Ms. Edwards and Ms. Parker are certified Special Olympics Bocce Ball coaches, and we hope to be able to open opportunities for our teams to compete in some local Delaware County Special Olympics competitions in the future. These new additions to our steadfast clubs provide an opportunity for ALL the students to engage in extra-curricular activities.

From our School Nurse, Mrs. LaRose
Head lice! No two words strike such fear in a parents heart. Head lice are a nuisance, but not a cause for alarm. The best way to prevent head lice is for kids to keep their heads away from each other, as lice move from one head to another. Although LOTS of information can be found online, the only resource I recommend consulting is the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lice/head/index.html
Also, regularly checking your student’s head will make sure that any lice are caught early, so try to remember to do a weekly check, or anytime you notice your child scratching their head.
From our PTG
The next PTG meeting is November 9th at 7 p.m. in the library.
