IV Eagle Flyby - August 31, 2023

The opening week of school was sensational, and things are steadfast moving forward into the 2023-2024 school year. Below are a few informational items for your review.

Career Cafe

This year we celebrate our 5th Year hosting Career Cafes at Indian Valley Middle School! “Career Cafes,” (adapted from Kathleen Goodman, School Counselor) are an opportunity for all students in 6th-8th grade to attend a Career Speakers Presentation during their lunchtime. Once a Marking Period, speakers will present at 6th, 7th, and 8th grade lunches.

If you are interested in participating as a Career Speaker for this upcoming school year, please reply to IVMS School Counselors, Kristen Raught and Jennifer Toby at and In your e-mail, please also include your job title and contact information. Further information will be sent to those interested in participating regarding the format of presentations and dates for this school year.

We thank you in advance for your consideration in participating!

We are grateful for the parental support at IV. To further optimize parent participation and volunteering opportunities, a committee was formed with Dr. Catherine Heller and parents that volunteered to be on the committee. The committee is in the final stages of completing the Indian Valley Middle School Parent Volunteer Registry. This is an online form for parents to volunteer for events. Look for the form to be live next week. For additional information contact Dr. Catherine Heller at or call the main office at 215-256-8896.
