Dear Students, Parents, Staff and Partners,
Welcome to our Indian Trace Elementary School website! Indian Trace Elementary is an “A” rated school and the recipient of the prestigious Golden School Award for exemplary practices for parent and community involvement. We were the first Broward County Public School to receive the Florida Power School Library recognition from the Department of Education for our outstanding Media and Library Program. Quality library programs have been proven to improve student achievement!
I am excited to begin another school year with you! I know that the format of teaching and learning will look different from what we are used to, but I want to assure you that all of the programs at our school that we’ve come to know and love will continue in our virtual learning environment. This year’s school-wide theme is “Indian Trace Goes Virtual: We’ve Got This!” Students and teachers at all grade levels will work collaboratively to through project based learning to master the Florida Standards and 21st century learning with a focus on integrating core subjects with real world application. We will continue to pursue our “Green” initiatives as we continue to find new ways to reduce, reuse and recycle to protect our planet Earth! We will embrace our uniqueness and celebrate the diversity that makes our Indian Trace Elementary family extraordinary!
We are proud to continue our successful dual language program in all grade levels K-5. Our second and third grade students will continue to strengthen their problem solving and critical thinking skills by playing the game of chess. We will continue to offer a variety of enrichments including Green Team, Robotics, Spanish Club, Book Clubs, T.V. Production, Debate and Tracer Buddies Peer Counseling Program. Our goal is to prepare all of our students to be college and career ready. All of our teachers are highly qualified and continuously take advantage of professional development opportunities to provide our students with rich and rigorous units of study. I am confident that your children will be motivated to learn and will continue to show growth.
I would like to thank you all for your ongoing support. Please continue to stay involved by volunteering, attending PTA and SAC meetings, and family events. My door is always open to you and your children. Feel free to reach out to me via telephone or email if you have questions or need assistance. Follow me on Twitter @Winder_ITE or @IndianTraceElem. We always have a lot to share via social media.
I look forward to another amazing school year!
