Principal's Message

Dear I.L. Branch Elementary families,

              As the Principal at I.L. Branch Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year!  I am very excited to be surrounded by such an amazing staff and a wonderful community.  This year promises to be a year filled with opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways to build upon honored traditions and challenge ourselves, as educators, to be even better than the year before! 

              In order to make this year the best we can, we recognize that a strong partnership is required between school and family.  In order to start a solid foundation to that partnership, I would like to invite you to our Back To School Night on August 31st  where you will be able to meet with your student’s teacher.  Also, please check the School’s website on a regular basis for calendar updates and school news. 

              It is hard to believe how quickly the first day of school is approaching.  Pretty soon, the halls and classrooms that have been empty all summer will be filled with an electrifying energy of children excited for a new school year.  At Branch, we are very excited to share in that excitement!

Thank you!

John Siercks
