News You Can Use

Week of January 15, 2018


I hope you had a great long weekend!  We are having a wonderful although cold start to our week here at ILE! Lots of smiling happy faces this morning!  They are calling for snow in the morning.  Please check the Lancaster County Safety and Transportation FB page for more timely updates and Lydia Quinn with our district office will send out a phone call as well. You will receive this email blast weekly to let you know what is going on at ILE.  Your child’s teacher should also be sending you an email at least once a week about what is going on in the classroom.  Please let me know if you are not receiving weekly communication from your child’s teacher.  We want you to be informed!  Thanks for your support and have a wonderful week! 

Beth Blum, ILE Principal  Please let me know if you have questions or concerns

Message for Indian Land Elementary 5th Grade Families:


Indian Land Middle School is excited to begin the transition process for you and your 5th grade child.  We will work with you to ensure a smooth transition for students and parents. 


On January 22nd, your child will receive a form titled, “Related Arts Options for 2018-2019”.  While in middle school, your child will take 6 classes each day:  Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and two Encore/Related Arts Classes (the equivalent of “Specials” in elementary school).  We ask that you and your child carefully consider the options available at ILMS and to choose courses of interest. 


On January 23rd, ILMS will host a meeting from 6-7PM.  During this time, you can meet our Encore teachers, ask questions, and determine your class options for the 2018-2019 school year.  The selection sheets can be turned in to ILMS at the January 23rd meeting or to your child’s 5th grade teacher.  We need all slips returned no later than January 26th.


Looking ahead:  Please mark your calendar for April 30th at 6PM.  Indian Land Middle School invites you to visit the school, meet our Administrators, as well as our School Counselors. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call.  The main number at Indian Land Middle School is 803-578-2500.  We look forward to meeting you and your child!
