Dear Iddings Families,
As the Principal of Homer Iddings Elementary School, I am both excited and honored to work with such a terrific staff. I am amazed by the shared purpose which has guided my own leadership: Every child, every day, whatever it takes!
I have learned that our goal as educators is to address gaps in students' learning, support challenges that are beyond their control, and motivate them to aspire to greatness. Merrillville Community School District is at the forefront of education because its mission aligns with the core belief for all students to receive a quality education that effectively meets their emotional and academic needs.
Ongoing communication is very important. This year we will be going paperless for our grading. Progress reports and report cards will be accessed through Skyward. We are asking all parents to download the Skyward application and log in to access student grades. Please check the settings so you will receive notifications for discipline, attendance, and grades.
I look forward to working with our families this year. We will continue to review and develop strong educational programs so that we continue to raise the bar for students. I have been inspired by the strong collaboration and commitment to student learning at Homer Iddings Elementary School. Together, we can ensure that we are all learning and growing.
