Principal's Update
DATE September 26, 2021

What a great turn-out it was at our Annual PTA School Carnival! It was tons of fun - balloon creations, face painting, the Color Run, soaking Mrs. Howicz or Miss Mansmith, taco truck and dipping dots, and so much more. Thank you White Eagle PTA for such a fun event!!! As of yesterday, we raised more than $15,000 for our White Eagle PTA! Way to go Wolves!

HAPPENINGS AT WHITE EAGLE:
Dr. Talley will hold three Listen & Learn sessions with the community starting Monday, October 4 at Fischer Middle School from 7 – 9 pm. In the sessions, Dr. Talley will share information about the district as well as his goals. Community members will have an opportunity to share their feedback on what works in the district, what's not working, and what specific suggestions they have for what's not working. Information gathered during these sessions will help the superintendent in planning for the future and may be used as part of the strategic planning process that will start later in the school year. RSVP here for the October 4 Listen & Learn Session.

Additional Listen & Learn sessions will be held on Thursday, November 4 at Granger Middle School and Tuesday, December 14 at Crone Middle School.

If you have questions regarding the Listen & Learn sessions, please contact Lisa Barry, Executive Director of Communication Services, at lisa_barry@ipsd.org.
