ILSA is making a difference in the lives of others! Scholars began their annual participation in the Leukemia/Lymphoma Foundation’s Pennies for Patients fundraiser this week.

Donations of spare change will be collected during the month of February, with classrooms charting weekly totals towards their donation goal. All classes are participating in helping raise money to support research in the treatment and prevention of blood-borne illnesses.

ILSA Celebrates School Choice Week

ILSA joined the National School Choice Week celebration last week by recognizing the partnership between parents, students, staff, Imagine Schools, Trine University/Education One, and the Board of Directors.

A drive-through breakfast was held for parents dropping students off for school on Monday, scholars and staff enjoyed music in the cafeteria on Tuesday, letters were written to our community partners on Wednesday, thanks were expressed to Miller Transportation, Aramark and AYS on Thursday, and apples were shared with visiting parents on Friday afternoon.

Parent Choice in where children attend school, as well as Parent Voice in the operation of the school, are important at ILSA, where we strive to view each child as an individual and each family as important to our success.

Thank You again for partnering with Indiana Life Sciences Academy!

Expansion of PBIS Continues

Middle School scholars with no behavioral referrals are now able to take their school issued laptops home as an extension of ILSA’s school wide positive behavior incentive system (PBIS). This new privilege supplements the school’s Eagle Tickets program, which rewards scholars for meeting and exceeding expectations for academic and behavioral performance with tickets which can be redeemed at the monthly Eagles’ Nest Store.

ILSA scholars are held to our EAGLES expectations, which include:

Everyone keep your hands, feet and objects to yourself; Always follow directions the first time; Give 100% in all that you do; Live with Integrity, Justice and Fun; Exceed expectations; and Show respect to yourself, others and the school.

New Year = New Ways to Get INVOLVED!

Happy New Year to each and every one! As we start the second half of the academic school year, ILSA encourages you to come in to volunteer in your child’s classroom or during one of our lunch periods.

All volunteers must have a background check on file, but this can be easily taken care of by coming into the school office any day and simply filing out one of our background check forms. We would love to have you as a volunteer in 2016!

We are Thankful!

ILSA is thankful for our wonderful staff, our amazing students, and our supportive parents who have chosen us to be their child’s home school! We are also thankful for Imagine Schools, Trine University, and our Board of Directors. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a team to run a school!
