Aloha and Welcome Back IPES Ohana!

"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."
Mark Twain
Aloha to our returning IPES Ohana and our new Ohana members! 
What a unique year we are going to have! With all the craziness Covid-19 has thrown at us, I can, without reservation, tell you our IPES staff cares deeply about your children, you as families, and our community.

It feels strange to not be connecting face-to-face!  These virtual meetings have been challenging to say the least.  This year we will all have to make the best of an incredibly challenging time. 

My hope with this message is to provide each of you some assurance through concrete information. No, this method of “doing school” is not ideal, but it can be really good! We are partnering with you as parents - your child’s first teachers - to have school in a way that is doable. Our goal in all of our district planning for instruction is to remind our community’s children that learning truly matters.

Its a system....not a program.  Students at IPES all learn strategies to help them be successful in school.  Take a look!
