Packet Pick Up – FREE Textbooks
Beginning Monday, May 18th, new enrichment packets will be available for pick up in the bus lane. Along with the packets we are excited to announce that we will have FREE ELA textbooks available for students. Our current 5th graders will receive 6th grade textbooks so that they can have access to material that they will learn next school year. Our current 6th graders will receive 7th grade textbooks so that they can have access to material that they will learn next school year. This is very exciting for us to be able to give students a head start on next school year!
Some frequently asked questions…
Why are you getting rid of the textbooks?
- Every six years, each school system in the state is required to adopt and purchase new textbooks in each major subject.
- This year every school system adopted new reading textbooks and materials. Therefore, we have been required to order and use new reading textbooks for the next school year.
- This year, we are allowed to give the previous textbooks to our students.
Will the textbooks be the same ones that my student used this year?
- The textbooks being offered are of the level of your child/ or children’s next year’s placement. You should not be receiving a textbook that your child already completed.
- These are quality resources for your children. We are all concerned about the lost instructional time. We know you will be glad to have these.
- After each instructional story are activities that teach needed skills. Please take advantage of having these materials.

Car Line Procedures - July 24, 2019
As part of our plan to ensure student safety, Indian Trail Intermediate School requires the use of Indian Trail Car Line Dismissal Cards.

Afternoon Dismissal Team has worked hard to increase the efficiency of our car line and most days we are finished within 15 minutes! To help us improve student safety during afternoon dismissal, we are in need of your help. Please thoroughly review and complete the attached documents, see below.
- Updated Afternoon Dismissal Procedures: Please read and review this list with anyone responsible for picking up your student(s)

CYBERBULLYING - Things you need to know:
Parents, cyberbullying is on the rise. In an attempt to be proactive, we have created a PowerPoint to help increase your awareness.
CHECK OUT OUR INTRAMURALS AND PE CLASSES IN THE VIDEO BELOW!
- Students will have their core classes: English Language Arts, Math, and Science/Social Studies.
- Students have two related arts per day. Students who sign up for performing arts will have their chosen class every day for the entire year. Performing arts students will also have an additional related arts class daily that will rotate each nine weeks.
Hawks Time & Team Time
- There are two outside activity times at ITIS per day, Team Time and HAWKS Time.
- Team Time is a 25-minute activity time
- HAWKS Time is an additional 20-minute block of time for students to go outside. HAWKS is an acronym for Healthy Activities Where Kids Smile.
- HAWKS Time will occur four days a week. On the fifth day, teachers will incorporate social/emotional activities such as team meetings and class meetings. Our goal is to build community, improve relationships, resolve conflicts, and create organization and structure. This is also a great time to recognize outstanding student behavior. Again, we will continue to focus on teaching whole child.
Our teachers are committed to improving consistency from hallway to hallway with the types of communications we utilize. In order to achieve this, our leadership team created the following guidelines for our school:
- Weekly Emails from the team to parents
- Grades Teachers will enter student grades in PowerSchool weekly so that parents have access to up-to-date and accurate academic progress
- Wednesday Folders are used for sending information home to parents
- Trackers are emphasized and utilized as a communication tool between teachers and parents
