Independence Elementary where all individuals are inspired to think and learn Independently and show good character at all times.
Francis Howell School District will be handling end of the year report cards a
little differently this year. Teachers will submit report cards after the
scheduled Records Day, which is the last day of school. Report cards will then
be submitted, processed and mailed home a few days after school is out. At this
time, the last day of school is scheduled for May 30th meaning
report cards would be put in the mail around June 4th. During
our Meet and Greet day on May 28th, students will have the opportunity
to visit their new classroom and meet their new teacher. Another change
this year is instead of doing an awards celebration day at the end of this
year, grade levels will schedule award celebration activities during their Town
Hall meetings and/or in their individual classrooms. This will allow
students and staff to celebrate their year together and teachers may distribute
awards. These activities will be very similar to the weekly celebrations
that grade levels and individual classrooms hold on a regular basis.
for your understanding as we make some transitions this school year. As
always, your support is appreciated.

I wanted to thank you for your support of Jump Rope for Heart this year @ Independence Elementary. Your parents, staff and students raised $7,220 for the American Heart Association. Your school is very generous and please know that almost all of these donations stay in our area for research, treatment, medicines, prevention and awareness of our # 1 killer – heart disease.
I would like to especially recognize Donna Boswick, Michael Murphy and Julie Hagedorn. It is due to their great work that your school is able to help save lives in your community. They also work very hard every day to encourage your students to take care of their own hearts. Your students were wonderful during Jump Rope Demo Team performance and you could tell they really enjoyed it.
