Independence Local Schools' IPride Star of the Week Independence Local Schools' IPride Star of the Week
Emily is a remarkable third grade student and an asset to our classroom and school family. Emily continuously does her best, and challenges herself to reach new goals and gain knowledge each day. In addition to her outstanding work ethic and academic skills, Emily is a genuinely kind and helpful person to both peers and adults. Emily always thinks of others' needs. She automatically jumps in to help any student who may be struggling, and is always ready with a kind word or hug for whomever needs it (and many days, I am the one who needs it). Emily does all of these things without regard for personal reward or recognition, showing an impressive level of emotional maturity at a young age. I know Emily will go on to great things as she grows, and she will continue to be a shining star for our school, district, and community.

Step Up To Quality is Ohio’s rating system for learning and development programs. Participating programs can earn a one to five star rating.

“Independence Primary School is proud to be a five-star program said Superintendent Ben Hegedish, Independence Local Schools. “We know that children have approximately 1,892 days from birth until school starts, and every day matters. It is important to us that children develop their self-confidence, social and emotional skills, and a love of learning.”

Francie Sorace was actively involved in the Primary School PTO where she took on the positions of Membership, Coordinating Room Parents and Scholastic Book Fair. She also assisted with PTO Santa Shop and Teacher Appreciation Week. Mrs. Sorace worked with IPS staff on K-Kids and classroom and office projects. This year, as part of our community and school partnership, Francie Sorace coordinated the Independence Historical Society's holiday decorations with our Art program. The Primary School Office Staff recognizes Francie Sorace for her endless hours of volunteer work and for her generosity to our students and staff!
