The Indus School would like to make you aware of an exciting summer educational opportunity for your child. For the second year, we will be providing a summer school program in June and August. What makes this different than previous summer instructional programs is that the sessions will again be held in International Falls (Backus Community Center) and Baudette (LOW School). The IFalls sessions will be held three days per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) for three weeks in June and three weeks in August. These sessions will focus on instruction and enrichment in reading and math for targeted students in grades 1-8 and credit recovery opportunities for students in grades 9-12. In addition, lunch will be provided to all participants at the Backus site.
The specific dates and times for Backus will be determined once we have firm commitments from the students that we are inviting to participate. If there is sufficient interest from our students in Baudette, further information will be provided about their program.
If you are interested in your child participating in this program, please return the letter that is being sent home today (Thursday) with your child by Wednesday, May 31. Once we determine the level of interest and the number of students participating, further information regarding days and times will be provided. As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to call the school at 218-634-2425.
Principal, Indus School

Indus offers Pre-school for three and four year olds as well as full-day, every day Kindergarten to ensure success in grades 1 through 6. In addition to a solid foundation in the core academic areas, Indus offers your high school student choices with robust offerings in the areas of Family and Consumer Sciences, Art, Music, and Industrial Technology.
