Independence Elementary School
Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! As I begin my first year as principal at Independence Elementary, I am committed to making a positive difference in the life of your child.
We begin this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing support systems to help individual students achieve these expectations. This, of course, is not possible without the help and encouragement of our community.
The parents and families of our community are supportive and contribute their time through our PTO, Helping Hands, and Watchdog programs. Independence Elementary houses approximately 540 students in the 4thand 5th grade. We have twelve 4thgrade classrooms and ten fifth grade classrooms. We offer a variety of specials classes including Physical Education, Art, Music, Library, Counseling, and STEM. With this capacity of students and programs, the need for volunteers is always there.
In addition to our school newsletter and webpage, school information and volunteer information is also sent out via the SchoolConnect App, Facebook by following Independence Elementary School- Yukon, OK or on Twitter @IESYukon.
Our remarkable staff, supportive community, and committed students are all a part of what makes Independence great! We are excited for what this school year has in store!
Recognized by Apple as a distinguished program for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence.
