IL SADD poster winners announced

SADD-Poster-Winners

Fourth-grade students at Indian Lake Elementary created posters inspired by high school SADD Chapter presentations throughout February encouraging students to develop healthy behaviors.  SADD members selected the winners, including Aliyah Biggs, Tia Tracey, Tori Hurley, Sage Futrell and Heidi Hoffman. The posters highlight the serious issues the SADD members talked about, including internet and cell phone safety, avoiding prescription drugs, stranger danger, bicycle safety and even limiting video game play. SADD advisor Deb Metzger says she hopes that these older students can serve as role models and influence the elementary children to make positive choices.

Finally getting to ‘100’

100-day

Indian Lake Elementary kindergartners enter their pod through a giant “100” last week on the 100th day of school. Maintenance staff member Roy Basil created the 100 sign for students. First-graders made crazy crowns and necklaces from 100 pieces of cereal. The 100th Day celebrations were later than usual this year because of the number of school cancellation days due to inclement weather. (PHOTO | INDIAN LAKE SCHOOLS)
