Dear Independence Academy Families,

As we approach the last week of the school year, we want to remind our students to finish strong and keep demonstrating the Independence Way: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Kind.  Finals are in full swing, and we know our students will continue to show their dedication and integrity during this crucial time.

With only a few short days left, let's make every moment count. Encourage your children to stay focused, support each other, and maintain the positive attitude that makes Independence Academy such an exceptional school.

Thank you for your continuous support throughout the year. We look forward to celebrating the end of a successful school year with you all.

Warm regards, 

Mrs. Ringdahl
