YEARBOOKS: If you forgot to get a yearbook you just got lucky. We have extra yearbooks for sale for $20 each. Please email Delilah327@yahoo.com Supplies are limited!

I-FIVES: We would like to send a special thank you to Mr. Kaese, Mrs. Jimenez and the 5th grade teachers who showed their love and support for our 5th grade students by passing out their 5th grade t-shirts and lawn signs!!  It was an incredibly emotional day as students and teachers got to say good-bye during this drive-thru event.  It was a great sense of closure, and extremely heart warming how the Ivy Hill staff helped make it happen!  Thank-you!!  We wish each of the 5th graders the best of luck as they move on to Middle School. Soar high as the Eagle as you have been these past 5 years. 

A big thank-you to Michelle Derochowski and Kate Buttita for continuing to work on their environmental awareness committee and help create the grounds of Ivy Hill to be beautiful and welcoming! We appreciate you ladies!

A big thank you to Melissa Sherman, Tammi Grippo, Laura Fritzsche and Kim Greenstein for coming up with some creative ways to acknowledge our amazing teachers and staff at Ivy Hill during Teacher Appreciation Week. They definitely came up with some creative ways to say THANK YOU to the amazing teachers/staff that make it happen for our kids.

Thank you again for all that each of you do as an Eagle! We ended this year differently but we still manage to be strong and come through together. Thank you!
