Dear Parents/Guardians,

Falcon Week will be February 24th through February 28th. We are focusing this week on furthering the student’s health education, getting them physically active, and continuing to build a sense of community within the school.

  • Each day is themed with a fun and healthy way to dress.
  • Please note that students not participating in the days given attire will need to wear their IPS uniform.  
  • We will also start each day, except Tuesday and Thursday, with some exercise and a healthy thought.
  • It is very important that all students wear tennis shoes and participate on Wednesday.

 Below is an agenda for the week.

Sunday:

  • Students and staff will wear baseball caps
  • Boys will start the day with Tae-bo
  • Girls will start the day with Zumba
  • Healthy thought for the day
  • Students also have the opportunity to earn tickets to participate in the Pep rally events for good behavior all week.
  • All week, students can earn tickets to vote for which staff member they want to see pied in the face.

Monday:

  • Students and staff will wear Neon
  • Everybody will start the day with yoga (Students are encouraged to bring mats or a towel for yoga)
  • Plus a healthy thought for the day.
