Ivanhoe could become a California Distinguished School!

Ivanhoe Elementary School has made the first cut to be  chosen as  a California Distinguished School!  If chosen, this would be a very high honor for our school.

A California Distinguished School is an award given by the California State Board of Education to public schools within the state that best represent exemplary and quality educational programs.  Approximately five percent of California schools are awarded this honor each year following a selection process.*

Our campus will be visited April 8th by members of the California Board of Education to determine our final approval.  We think Ivanhoe is a Distinguished School and we deserve this title!

Campus Clean-Up, 3/29 – 8:00 am – 12:00 pm.  

We want to put our best face forward!  This Saturday, March 29, we are asking all parents who are able to come to campus for a much needed Spring Cleaning.  Please come and help make Ivanhoe shine!  This will include some basic sprucing, minor repairs, etc. We need gloves, cleaning supplies, tools and some able bodies.  Come and lend a hand for an hour or whatever you can spare.  Thank you!
