Back to school time has arrived


I hope that everyone has enjoyed their summer. It has been a busy time for the Crosby household but we have enjoyed it.

Meet the teacher night for Iola Elementary will be Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This will be an opportunity for you and your children to meet your teachers, visit the classroom and drop off school supplies. This is a come and go event.

Returning student online registration will open on Aug. 11. The online registration allows parents to simply update the contact information and required forms from year to year, rather than fill out all the paper work that is sent home the first day of school. We will be opening the elementary computer lab on Aug. 14 from 4pm-6pn for anyone who needs assistance or would like to register on campus. New students may register now. Please contact the appropriate campus office with ant questions.
