Welcome to the School Year from Principal Boylan!
Dear New and Returning Ithan Families,
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 2022-23 school year at Ithan Elementary School. It is always exciting to greet both our new and returning families. The strong partnership established between home and school makes Ithan a special place where collaboration and support are alive and well. Our teachers are working to prepare to meet the needs of our students through differentiated teaching and learning within our classrooms with a goal toward individual student growth.
We encourage you to sign up for the Radnor Reader and to visit our school website often for current information. The Elementary School Parent Handbook also contains guidelines that may answer your questions about school procedures.
We are looking ahead to a smooth start to the school year and will welcome 505 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. We look forward to seeing many parents at our upcoming Back to School events.
Our goal is to continue to work collaboratively with students, families, and staff to provide a strong and comprehensive education program which enhances the lives of our students in the areas of social, academic, and personal growth to prepare them for the future they will face. We teach lessons on specific social skills through our Ithan Cares program teaching our students to: Cooperate, be Assertive, demonstrate Responsibility, be Empathetic and show Self-Control. You will hear more about Responsive Classroom strategies and how we will use them to continue to teach students how to work together as partners so they know their role and are actively engaged in their learning community. We want to ensure all students, staff and families feel they belong at Ithan!
We are looking forward to working with you and your children this year. We have an open-door policy and always welcome your input. While we enjoy the quiet of summer, the halls of Ithan are more alive when the children are here. We know that working together we will have another fabulous year of learning and growing at Ithan Elementary!
