Welcome Eagles to the 2014-15 school year! We are excited to begin a new chapter in the history of our school, and we appreciate the role our scholars, families, and staff will have in our success. Here’s a breakdown of a few NEW things going on:
New Name/New Authorizer: Our school name changed to Indiana Life Sciences Academy (ILSA) on July 1, 2014 which is the day our partnership with Trine University became official. We continue to be operated by Imagine Schools.
New Uniforms: Purple or Yellow shirts, along with Black bottoms – all featuring our Eagle logo – will identify our ILSA scholars and set the tone for serious academics. School Zone, our uniform provider, can be reached at (877) 478-7889. They are located at 5425 N. Keystone.
New After Care Provider: AYS (At Your School) provides before and after care services featuring structured activities, arts and crafts, homework help, and a snack. Please call them at (317) 283-2817 for more information and to register your child.
New Push for Parent Involvement: Volunteering doesn’t always mean coming into the building, although that is great, too! This year we are renewing our efforts to have a Parents in Education group to work with us to make improvements to our school, offer feedback and advice, and help strengthen our school-to-home partnerships. Please call our Front Desk at (317) 297-9100 for more information.
New Academic Calendar: ILSA will provide 195 instructional days this year, along with a later start to our school day. Scholars can enter the building beginning at 8:30 each morning, class begins at 9:00 and the tardy bell rings at 9:05. Additionally, all scholars receive 150 minutes of supplemental, individualized instruction each week through our Eagle Success Time.
New Transportation Company: Miller Transportation is providing bus service for ILSA this school year. Please call our front desk (317) 297-9100 with any transportation questions.
New Associate Principal: Mrs. Bianca Rivers is ILSA’s new leader, with Mr. Keith Marsh assuming Regional Operations responsibilities for our campus as well as some Imagine Schools campuses in Ohio.
More information regarding all of these exciting changes will be shared as the year goes on. As always, we THANK YOU for choosing to partner with us in your child’s education. We know that working together, this will be a wonderful year!!
