Hello Indian Grove Parents/Guardians!

As your child's principal, I'd like to welcome you back to Indian Grove for the 2017-18 school year.  This email has some pertinent information about the start of school so please read carefully.

Homeroom assignments for most students in grades 1-5 will be sent out, 8/8, in the US mail.  Kindergarten homeroom assignments will be sent out next week.  

There is a NEW FAMILY orientation for all families (except kindergarten) who are NEW to the school.  This orientation is on August 17th at 5 PM in the cafeteria at Indian Grove School.  I will give an overview of the school and also take new students and their families on a short tour of the building.  New students will receive their homeroom assignment at this meeting if it is not sent out at an earlier date.

All FIFTH GRADERS and a parent must come to a Chromebook orientation on 8/17 at  9 AM or 7 PM at Indian Grove. This is a mandatory meeting.  A separate email will be sent to fifth grade parents with further details.  

NEW this year!  Parents and students may drop off the school supplies in their child's homeroom on Monday, August 21st between 2:45 - 3:30 only.  If a School Supply Kit was ordered, this kit will be delivered to your room by 8/22.  You do not need to drop off supplies the day before school starts.

The first day of school for grades 1-5 is Tuesday, August 22nd.  Kindergarten students will come for one hour on this day with a parent/guardian.  Specific times for this kindergarten visit will be sent in the letter with homeroom assignment. All students in grades 1-5 should report to the NORTH playground by 8:30 a.m. on 8/22.  Parents/guardians may accompany their child to the playground but WILL NOT be coming into school when the 8:35 bell rings.  The tardy bell is at 8:40 a.m. so please be at Indian Grove by 8:30 a.m. on this first day of school.   Teachers will be outside with signs so children can line up by homeroom.

Our school office is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. until 8/22.  After school begins, office hours will be from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Please do not  hesitate to contact the school or me if you have any questions.  The best way to reach me is with an email.  My address is

I am looking forward to another great year with all the Indian Grove students and families.  Looking forward to seeing you all in two weeks (if not sooner)!


Mrs. Lynn Fisher
