    Dear Indian Hills Staff and Families,

    It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to let you know I will be leaving Indian Hills Elementary at the end of this school year. Indian Hills is a truly wonderful place to work and learn, and I am forever grateful to have been a part of this community. It will always hold a special place in my heart.

    After a lot of reflection, I have decided to turn in a new direction in my educational career and return to my roots as a licensed staff member to better meet the needs of my family. I will be serving as the dean of students at Orenco Elementary School and teacher on special assignment (TOSA) for the Office of School Performance, starting in August 2021. This has been an incredibly difficult decision for me as I will miss being a part of this amazing team and working with all the wonderful students, staff, and families at Indian Hills Elementary School. Indian Hills students are amazing and I know they will continue to be in good hands, being supported and guided by an excellent staff and passionate families.

    Katie Thomas, current principal of Groner K-8, will be appointed as the new Indian Hills principal. Before joining the District’s first K-8 school as principal in 2017, Ms. Thomas served as the assistant principal at Poynter Middle School for three years. Prior to that, she was an elementary school teacher at both Witch Hazel and Eastwood Elementary Schools. She was also a TOSA for secondary math and a new teacher mentor with the Washington County Consortium. Ms. Thomas has led the District’s Flight Team for the past several years - a group of specially-trained counselors and mental health professionals who support schools, students, staff, and families in times of crisis. Ms. Thomas is committed to equity and ensuring all students have the resources and opportunities they need to be successful; I am confident you will enjoy working with her. 

    I truly appreciate everyone who has worked hard to ensure that all Indian Hills Bears reach their highest academic and social potential during my three years here as principal. It has been an honor to work alongside you and I know you will continue to accomplish great things.

    Sincerely,

    Deborah Hunt
    Principal

    Estimados miembros del personal escolar y comunidad de Indian Hills:

    Es con emociones encontradas que escribo esta carta para informarles que me iré de la Escuela Primaria Indian Hills al final de este año escolar. Indian Hills es un lugar verdaderamente maravilloso para trabajar y aprender, y siempre estaré agradecida de haber sido parte de esta comunidad. Indian Hills siempre tendrá un lugar especial en mi corazón. 

    Después de mucha reflexión, he decidido tomar un nuevo trayecto en mi profesión educativa y regresar a mis raíces como miembro del personal licenciado para apoyar de mejor manera las necesidades de mi familia. Tomaré el puesto de decana de estudiantes en la Escuela Primaria Orenco y maestra en asignación especial (TOSA, por sus siglas en inglés) en la Oficina para el Desempeño Escolar, comenzando en agosto de 2021. Esta ha sido una decisión increíblemente difícil para mí, ya que extrañaré ser parte de este increíble equipo y trabajar con todos los maravillosos estudiantes, el personal escolar y las familias de la Escuela Primaria Indian Hills. Los estudiantes de Indian Hills son increíbles y sé que continuarán en buenas manos, siendo apoyados y guiados por un excelente personal escolar y familias apasionadas.

    Katie Thomas, actual directora de Groner K-8, será nombrada nueva directora de Indian Hills. Antes de unirse a la primera escuela K-8 del Distrito como directora en 2017, la Sra. Thomas se desempeñó como subdirectora en la Escuela Secundaria Poynter durante tres años. Antes de eso, fue maestra en las escuelas primarias Witch Hazel y Eastwood. También sirvió como TOSA para matemáticas de escuela secundaria y preparatoria y como mentora de maestros nuevos con el consorcio del Condado de Washington. La Sra. Thomas ha dirigido el equipo de apoyo (Flight Team) del Distrito durante los últimos años, un grupo especialmente capacitado de consejeros y proveedores de salud mental que apoyan a las escuelas, los estudiantes, al personal escolar y a las familias en momentos de crisis. La Sra. Thomas está comprometida con la equidad y asegurando que todos los estudiantes tengan los recursos y oportunidades que necesitan para tener éxito; estoy segura de que disfrutarán trabajar con ella. 

    Aprecio con sinceridad a todos los que han trabajado arduamente para asegurar que todos los osos de Indian Hills alcancen su mayor potencial académico y social durante mis tres años aquí como directora. Ha sido un honor trabajar junto con ustedes y sé que continuarán logrando grandes cosas.

    Atentamente,

    Deborah Hunt
    Directora

Principal's Message

  • Katie ThomasDear Indian Hills Families,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I am Principal of Indian Hills Elementary School. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son’s/daughter’s school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Indian Hills by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives through Positive Behavior Intervention Support, Capturing Kids Hearts, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted English Language Arts to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

    The diverse student population at Indian Hills Elementary School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures. The Indian Hills staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to drive rigorous engagement in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek to continuously improve in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!

    In partnership,

    Katie Thomas
    Principal
