CONGRATS Indianola K-8 Unified Arts Team! Our pleas were heard!

Thank You! Due to the diligence of our parents, staff, students, former students, etc., the decision was made to keep our Unified Arts Team at full time status at Indianola K-8. All the personal emails & letters made a big difference! It's amazing the change that can come from a group of like minded people working together! Here is a letter received from our principal...

March 31, 2014

Dear Indianola Informal K-8 families and friends:

Thank you for taking the time over the last week to express your thoughts about the Indianola Informal K-8 program, specifically the arts team.

After an in-depth review by the district, the decision has been made to fully restore the full-time arts team for our elementary and middle grades. No reductions will occur.

I want to reassure you that our staff is committed to delivering an instructional program that is the quality you have come to expect from Indianola Informal K-8. Integrated units of study that allow students to connect content with the arts, multiple ways of demonstrating mastery and opportunities to build community will continue to be parts of this program.

Feel free to contact me personally, if you have questions.

Kathryn Moser
Principal
Indianola K-8 School

  • Dana Delany It has been proven that students with arts education graduate with higher grades in all subjects and more often go on to college. Arts are not only the soul of our country, they also feed our economy. And it all starts in elementary school.

  • Proud_Danimal Ortega It is wonderful to see that you Ms. Dana still care so much about art in the schools thank you for your example!!!

  • Nicole Zahrndt Thank You Dana,
    Indianola Informal k-8 is a very special school that incorporates the arts as a CORE curriculum, it has helped so many of our children not just learn, but embrace the arts and to become empowered! Your support of the arts and our school means the world!
