Progress Reports

First quarter progress reports will be given out on Friday 10/12/18.  Please keep in mind that this is just a snap shot of your child's progress in their classes at one point in time.  Progress report grades were submitted by teachers over a week ago. Since then more assignments and grades have been added to the gradebook.  SchoolMax will always be the most up to date reflection of your child's progress.

Partnering with you!

Message from Principal Rice

Greetings IA 4th Grade Families,

I am reaching out to share some unfortunate news. Between the beginning of October and the end of December, we will be losing both of our 4th grade teachers.

Ms. Gonzalez and her husband will be relocating to Texas to fulfill military orders following the holiday break in December. She will not be returning in the new year. Due to unforeseen family health issues, Ms. Kowalskyj will not return after October 8, 2018.

We are working diligently to recruit quality teachers to replace them. As soon as we have an update on who will replace them,  I will provide an update to families. We wish both of them the best in their future endeavors.


H. D. Rice II
