Greetings I.D.E.A.L. Families!
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! I am so happy to have you as a member of our school’s community. On behalf of the entire I.D.E.A.L. School Staff I want to welcome you to the new school year. We are very excited to work with our families, promote student learning and good attendance and create a positive learning environment on a daily basis.
Individualized, Developmental, Educational Approaches to Learning School or I.D.E.A.L. has a multi-age learning environment. We have three multi-age units that are taught by teams of teachers. Our Primary Unit is grades K4 thru 2, Elementary Unit is grades 3 thru 5 and our Middle School Unit is grades 6-8.
We are also proud to be a STEM School that follow six yearly school-wide Science themes. We look forward to sharing more information throughout the year and showing you the students unique projects and learning opportunities.
I want to be sure everyone takes note that our school’s hours have been updated…we are now 9:10 a.m. to 4:10 p.m. We are making it a school goal this year to improve overall attendance and to minimize the tardies and early pick-ups. We need all students in school on time and present for the entire day to truly foster their learning. Numerous absences lead to missing valuable learning opportunities. We hope everyone is able to assist with meeting our district’s attendance goal of 95% or better!
I truly want to thank each of our families for choosing I.D.E.A.L. School! We are so happy to have you here! Be sure to watch for and read all school communications (text, email, phone and weekly folder). Our Wednesday Home/School Communication folder comes out weekly with our newsletter and other important school & district information. Call our main office with any questions at 414-267-1600.
Let’s have a wonderful school year!
