Message from the Principal

Dear IHE Families,
I hope that you are enjoying your Thanksgiving break.  I am very proud of my students and staff for how well we did on the Quarter 1 Interim Assessments.  I want to report that IHE scored very well and we ranked within the top 5 schools in the district at each grade level.  IHE teachers and staff are doing amazing things with your children!  Quarter 2 Interim Assessments are coming up in December and I look forward to publishing those results after we get back in January.  
On a different note.....Although the weather in the afternoons is still warm and beautiful, the mornings are getting cold.  Please send your children with appropriate clothing to keep them warm.  Also, the safety of your children at IHE is paramount.  IHE does not have staff on duty before 7:30am but we still have a number of students on the playground before that time.  Please do not drop off or allow your children to come to school before 7:30am.   

 Thank you for all that you do and for all your support! 


Randy Crisler
