2015-2016 School Year Registration Information

Student Registration Information

The New Student Registration Monday, July 27th, is ONLY for students who are new to our school, so if you registered your child last Spring by sending in the Registration Card, it is not necessary to come on that date.

For the Registration evenings of August 4th and August 6th, you will choose either evening to attend as a come-and-go event beginning at 5:30 and ending at 8:30 P.M. As you enter the school, please proceed to the pod or hallway for the corresponding grade for your child.  Outside of the classroom doors you will find class rosters posted, and the folders with papers to complete that night will be available from the teachers there. This will also give your child’s teacher the chance to provide any information needed before the Open House Nights are held. Sumner County Schools are asking us again this year to make a computer survey available for parents to complete on Registration Evenings as we develop a new vision statement for the county. It will be available in the classrooms on those two evenings, and it only take a couple of minutes to complete. The responses are anonymous and will only be reported in the aggregate.  Your participation would mean a great deal to us.

You will then be asked to proceed to the CAFETERIA where many of the items on the checklist can be taken care of at that time. Some of these items include visiting the Transportation Table for Bus Number Confirmation, picking up a name placard for your car visor if your child will be a car rider at dismissal in the afternoons, and/or permission forms if your child will be a bike rider or a walker.

Other items to address while in the Cafeteria include visiting the Lunch Table for MealPay Plus information as well as Lunch Account set-up, optional Spanish & French After-School classes, YMCA Fun Company Before and After-School Care, and any other informational materials that may be available and of interest to you. The bookstore will also be open. Additionally, the PTO will be set up with tables with information about the program and donations.

School Supply Information

Our Supply Lists can be found here on the ILE website. However, for your convenience all items can be paid for on Registration Day and the supplies will be in your child’s classroom beginning the first full day on Monday, August 10th. This is an optional courtesy service that we like to provide for you, but we emphasize that it is optional.

If you cannot attend the Registration Evenings, you may stop by the office on August 4th-7th between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to find out who your child’s teacher will be and to take care of paper work and fees at that time.

Reminder

Monday, August 10th is the first full day for all students in grades 1-5.  ***Kindergarten student information can be found here***

Dress Code Information

As general dress code guidelines as you shop for those back-to-school wardrobes, shorts, skirts, and dresses must come to at least fingertip length. Spaghetti straps should only be worn with something else over them. Please refrain from allowing muscle shirts to be worn. Leggings are fine with a top of appropriate length over them. On PE day, please make certain your child has gym shoes, and please remember that we have outdoor recess every day, weather permitting, so flip flops should not be worn. Please no extreme hair color or styles and no profanity or inappropriate content on clothing.

Welcome Kindergarten Parents!

Kindergarten Registration Update

We have two registration evenings. August 4 or August 6, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. These are come and go, and you choose either one you would like to attend. For Kindergarten, when you enter the building, please turn left and visit some of the tables in the cafeteria either before or after you visit the Related Arts pod where you will sign up for a 30 minute time slot on August 10, 11, or 12 when your child will work with one of the teachers on the Kindergarten testing. Then on the afternoon of the 12th, you will receive a phone call from his/her teacher letting you know whether your child will then come a FULL day on Thursday the 13th or Friday the 14th. Then ALL Kindergarten students report on Monday the 17th.

That evening you will be asked to fill out some more paper work. We MAY be able to have some of these available online prior to that evening, but some will still be necessary then, and we appreciate your patience. You will be asked to participate in a parent survey in one of the computer labs In the Related Arts pod that evening, and even though you may be new to our school, your input will be appreciated as it serves as part of our AdvancEd Accreditation for the State. All schools in Sumner County are participating in this anonymous survey aimed at helping us target areas of strength and areas of focus for our school’s service to you. While it is voluntary, your help would be appreciated, and the teachers can give you more information that evening.

The cafeteria will have tables set up for Lunch Accounts, Transportation Questions and materials, PTO information, opportunities to purchase ILE Spirit Wear, and various other displays about YMCA Fun Company Before/After Care, and various extra-curricular offerings.

There are no “activity fees” asked of our parents as has been the case in years passed, so that is great news! As a completely OPTIONAL service to you, if you would prefer to not fight the back-to-school crowds for school supplies on the recommended list, we offer the opportunity to purchase any/all of the items on the sheet you will receive here at school, and those items would be delivered directly to your child’s classroom. Our bookstore stocks items throughout the year, too, should you need to replenish materials. Again this is completely optional and a courtesy we extend to our parents. MANY parents have expressed their appreciation for one fewer item to worry about for back to school. Yet again, we stress there are no mandatory fees.

We are sure you will have many questions, but our teachers will be ready to meet you and answer those for you on either August 4th or August 6th. New student registration is Monday, July 27th, if you are new to our area and would like to come pre-register as many did in the Spring. Also, if you have updated proofs of residency, immunization cards, birth certificates, or any other materials to bring, our teachers can assist you with those that night, too.

Again, we welcome you to Indian Lake, and we hope this is the start of an unbelievably happy journey for your child. Thank you for choosing us and for trusting us with your precious child!

With warmest regards,

Ondie Mitchell
Principal
