Principal’s Announcements

3/29/2017

Good Evening IMSA North Family,

This is Onder Secen, the Principal with this week’s Principal’s corner.

All Kindergarten through 5th Grade families are encouraged to listen to Ms.Zack read a story on Facebook LIVE tonight at 7:30pm from IMSA North Facebook Page.

Please check our updates to our eLearning protocol. Most notable change is that the teachers will assign work on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday only. Teachers will still be available Monday through Friday between 10am-1pm. Also K-2 will start receiving their instructions through Google Classroom to parent’s email moving forward.  If you do not receive an assignment from your child’s teacher on Tuesday, please email Barbara Mancher at Mancher@imsaindy.org or text to (317) 455-5583 with your name, email address and your child’s name.

When you leave a message to our school number (317) 259-7300, please make sure to leave your name and number along with your message.

This Tuesday, March 31st you can pick up workbooks between 11am-1pm.

 

We sent the 3rd Quarter report cards about an hour ago. The 3rd quarter had ended on March 13th so the report cards reflect only the grades when students were physically at the school, they don’t include eLearning grades. If you have not received the report card, please text to (317) 455-5583 or email to north@imsaindy.org , with your child’s name and the email we need to use.

To receive a shorter version of any message from the school, including these announcements, simply text “Y” (or “yes”), via text message, to short code 67587.

Lastly, please visit 2020census.gov to respond to the 2020 census.

Have a great Sunday evening and
Gooooo Kniiiiiiiiights….

Buenas tardes Familia IMSA Norte,

Este es Onder Secen, el director con el rincón del director de esta semana.

 Se alienta a todas las familias de jardín de infantes a quinto grado a escuchar a Ms.Zack leer una historia en Facebook LIVE esta noche a las 7:30 pm desde la página de Facebook de IMSA North.

Consulte nuestras actualizaciones de nuestro protocolo de eLearning. El cambio más notable es que los maestros asignarán trabajo solo los martes, miércoles y jueves. Los maestros seguirán disponibles de lunes a viernes de 10 a.m. a 1 p.m. Además, K-2 comenzará a recibir sus instrucciones a través de Google Classroom en el correo electrónico de los padres en adelante. Si no recibe una tarea del maestro de su hijo el martes, envíe un correo electrónico a Barbara Mancher a Mancher@imsaindy.org o envíe un mensaje de texto al (317) 455-5583 con su nombre, dirección de correo electrónico y el nombre de su hijo.

Cuando deje un mensaje a nuestro número de escuela (317) 259-7300, asegúrese de dejar su nombre y número junto con su mensaje.

Este martes 31 de marzo puede recoger libros de trabajo entre las 11 am y las 1 pm.

Enviamos las boletas de calificaciones del tercer trimestre hace aproximadamente una hora. El tercer trimestre había terminado el 13 de marzo, por lo que las boletas de calificaciones reflejan solo las calificaciones cuando los estudiantes estaban físicamente en la escuela. Si no ha recibido la boleta de calificaciones, envíe un mensaje de texto al (317) 455-5583 o envíe un correo electrónico a north@imsaindy.org, con el nombre de su hijo y el correo electrónico que necesitamos usar.

Para recibir una versión más corta de cualquier mensaje de la escuela, incluidos estos anuncios, simplemente envíe un mensaje de texto con la letra “Y” (o “sí”), por mensaje de texto, al código corto 67587.

Por último, visite 2020census.gov para responder al censo 2020.

Que tengan un buen domingo por la noche y
