September 2022 News

We are now three weeks into what will be a great school year at Indian Hill!

We had a great first PTO District meeting Wednesday night. The Principals and Directors shared updates on what is happening at each of the schools, and Mr. Nichols shared status of the construction and what to look for next around each of our buildings. Mr. Koennecke discussed progress they are making against the strategic plan, and the JOY that everyone is encouraged to bring back to our schools. 

We would love for you to join us next time -- mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 2nd.

We are well underway with our events and programs. Special thanks to Elaine Skeldon and Mandy Longbottom for organizing a tasty teacher welcome back lunch. 

With appreciation,

Heather Bennett

Save the Date - Trivia on the Hill is Back!

Mark your calendars, Trivia on the Hill will be the evening of Saturday, January 21st. The last Trivia on the Hill was in 2020 just prior to the pandemic. We had a fun camping theme and raised funds for Capital Grants for all four buildings. It is finally time to bring the JOY back! This is a great event for parents to get together over some healthy trivia competition. We are working to finalize the location but save the date for a fun night out for a great cause!
