Since school is not in session on April 2nd, we would like to show our support by wearing blue on April 3rd, instead. We are calling it "Go Blue with Me on April 3!". This day of awareness offers families and staff the opportunity to discuss autism, differences and kindness. We hope you will join us.

Introducing Motivation Monday! Indian Hill and Chippewa School will be starting Motivation Monday this upcoming Monday: September 17th! Both schools are encouraging all staff and students to wear a positive t-shirt EVERY Monday to kick off the week! I’ve spotted dozens of students already dressed in positive gear! These shirts would be perfect to wear on Motivation Monday. In addition, I will be sending out a link for students, parents and staff to purchase a positive t-shirt. If students do not have a motivational shirt on Mondays, no worries; teachers will be handing out enthusiastic stickers to wear for the day! It’s Monday, Don’t Forget To Be AWESOME! Please let me know if you have any questions! Christine O’Grady School Social Worker
