This school year is full of promise that we will inspire a passion for learning through helping each and every child achieve personal success and become a responsible productive member of our school community. In order to make this happen, we as educators, teachers and staff will need your help and partnership as parents. Children benefit greatly when parents/guardians take an active role in their child's education. It has been proven that when students have parental support at home, they enjoy their learning and school life even more. Students' attitudes and perceptions of school improves as they develop more self-confidence in their journey to becoming life-long learners and productive contributors to our community and society.

We strongly believe that all parents want the best for their children and want their children to be successful in school. I-S Elementary School is committed to working with parents to achieve this goal through setting high expectations and providing a safe positive learning environment for our students. We also seek to build and to maintain a working partnership with you as we strive for daily improvement and keep the lines of communication open.

I am honored to serve our children, staff, families, and community as we work collaboratively to grow the students of Iola-Scandinavia. It is a privilege to be a part of this community where parents, teachers, and students care for one another and build positive and lasting relationships supporting our students academically, socially, and emotionally.

I am excited to work with each and everyone of you. Please feel to contact me at any time with any celebrations, questions or concerns. I am here to support the students and families of this great community!

Together..every student, everyone, everyday!
