A Message from the Principal

Dear ITES Families,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! Summer has come and gone again, and I hope all of you had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break. For those families that are new to the Canal Winchester School District and Indian Trail Elementary, I would like to welcome you to our fantastic school district and look forward to meeting you in the near future!

Mrs. Cobb and I are excited to begin our seventh year as the administrators of Indian Trail Elementary. We, along with the amazing staff at Indian Trail, look forward to building those positive relationships that are vital to student success, growth, and achievement. At Indian Trail, we pride ourselves on connecting with, and getting to know, the students on a personal level. This enables each staff member to personalize the students' learning and meet the educational needs of each student. Last year was a challenging year for teachers, students, and parents, but we persevered by working together. We believe that a strong relationship, built on trust between student and teacher, can lead to significant student learning!  

We continue to be committed to the Mission Statement of "Empowering All Students for Success". For the staff, this means understanding the individual needs of each student and supporting them at that level.  

As we strive for success, our staff will continue to implement the pillars of the Portrait of a Graduate to guide our way. The pillars of the Portrait of a Graduate consist of: Respectful Citizens, Responsible Learners, Self-Aware Individuals, Problem Solvers, Communicators, and Collaborators.  

I am very excited for another fantastic school year at Indian Trail Elementary, and look forward to partnering with you during your child's educational journey.
