Greetings I.D.E.A.L. School Families!
Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! I am so happy to have you as a member of the Individualized, Developmental, Educational Approaches to Learning (I.D.E.A.L.) School community. On behalf of the entire school staff, I want to welcome you to our school! We are so happy to have you as part of our learning community. We are excited to work with our families, promote student learning, good attendance and create a positive learning environment every day!
I.D.E.A.L. School has a unique multi-age learning environment. We have three multi-age units that are taught by teams of teachers who work collaboratively to create a rigorous, hands-on learning approach for our students. Our Primary Unit is grades K4 through 2, Elementary Unit is grades 3 through 5 and our Middle School Unit is grades 6 through 8.
We are also proud to be a STEM School that follows six yearly school-wide Science themes. We look forward to sharing more information throughout the school year and showing you the unique projects and learning opportunities.
This year both district & school-wide we want everyone to remember “Attendance Counts Every day!” It is our goal to increase and improve our attendance so we can meet the district goal of 95% or better. We want to minimize tardies and early pick-ups as well. We need all students to be on time and present for the entire day to truly foster their learning. We need everyone’s support to improve daily attendance.
Thank you so much for choosing I.D.E.A.L. School for your family! We are so happy to have you here. Be sure to watch for & read all weekly home communications. Our weekly newsletter comes home via paper copy in your child’s blue home folder on Wednesdays and it is sent via email. It is filled with important information. Call our main office at 414-267-1600 with any questions.
Let’s have a wonderful school year!
