 What a fantastic first semester of the 2018-19 school year that is coming to a close!

The New Year is upon us and many individuals will set New Year’s resolutions. Although we are optimistic that the goals we set are attainable, we must be realistic and allow ourselves some flexibility. As we move into the next few months, please encourage your children to set mini-goals, strive for achievement and recognize their accomplishments.

If your child can commit to one “resolution”, the benefit will positively impact his/her entire day. Please discuss these possibilities with your child and have him/her take the initiative to become actively involved in creating their own learning experience.

Parents, let’s join hands and be proactive in helping our students excel academically. Let’s make academics our focus. During this season of peace and goodwill, it is with pleasure that we pause and express our best holiday wishes and deepest appreciation for your support. May the warmth and love of the season fill your hearts and homes. Live, Love, and Laugh. Spend all the time you can with your family. Most of all, remember the REASON FOR THE SEASON. I look forward to seeing everyone in 2019. 

Have a Safe and Blessed Holiday! 

 Educationally Yours, Brenda Singleton 

 Academic Coach’s Corner - IES is Harvesting Academia

As we enter the Fall Season, we have completed the first test of performance for the 2018-2019 school year. With the results that we will receive in the coming weeks, teachers at IES have equipped themselves to lead our students to the next dimension. Teachers have willingly accepted the challenge to conduct after school tutorials for those students who need additional instruction, ELA and Math Intervention classes have been adjusted according to the needs of the students, and teachers and students are strategically analyzing data in on data through data meetings and data talks.  IES is on the move remain proficient in all aspects of the state assessments. Go Hawks!

Counselor’s Corner

Each month we will have a different character education theme. The month of October the theme is responsibility. Being responsible is a learned behavior! It takes time to teach responsibility and it requires time to learn. With practice and clear expectations, you can teach your child to become a responsible learner. Talk to your child’s teacher to alert him or her about any changes that may impact your child at school. The teacher can also alert you to anything that may be happening with your child! Students can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent. If you have any concerns regarding your child or would like me to meet with them, please contact me. I can be reached by email at or by phone at 662-265-0011.
