These students read all 12 books nominated for the Mark Twain.Award.  They competed in a trivia challenge with all the elementary schools in the district on April 10th.

Rene Cope, FHSD BOE Member, visited Independence Elementary in February in order to get to know our community a little better. A group of our student leaders gave her a tour and shared lots of great information about our wonderful school. She asked good questions which allowed for her to learn about our culture and we were very appreciative that she took the time to visit with us.  It is always a great feeling to know that we are supported by our BOE. Thank you to Rene Cope and our student leaders!

Protecting Your Family Against the Flu

Cold and flu season is here. Please consult with your child’s physician to find out when flu shots will be available for your family. Students with chronic health conditions, including asthma, and those who are immunocompromised are highly encouraged to obtain a flu shot early.
