As we near the half way point of the school year, very few in the community thought we would still be holding face to face instruction in our buildings. Honestly, I had my own doubts. We are still in school and going strong. It is because of our outstanding staff and their dedication and unselfish actions that we are able to continue educating our students and providing valuable experiences that support their dreams! THANK YOU ENSC STAFF. You are appreciated, amazing, and rock stars! We can do this! Bring on 2021....please! -Ann Linson, Superintendent

We would love for you to meet another new face to our Trailblazer staff, Miss Haley Downer! Here are some things about Miss Downer, in her words! I love reading and spent ten years working in libraries so I try to visit them when I travel. This picture was taken at the New York Public Library in New York City. This lion is one of two Lego replicas of the larger marble statues outside the library. The lion which guards the south side of the building is named Patience. I have a cat named Ori and enjoy spending time with my family. I am constantly listening to audiobooks, podcasts or music while working on my hobbies like crochet, painting, and other crafts. I am so excited to be back at South Side this year as I was a student when the building first opened and also worked here as a preschool teacher's assistant during my senior year of high school. I look forward to helping our students learn and grow!
Meet Miss Strasser, another new Trailblazer face this year. Miss Strasser is teaching fourth grade at South Side. She loves all things Disney. (You will have to ask if she can come up with a favorite.) She loves sports! During recess you can find her joining in with her students at whatever game is being played. Another fun fact about Miss Strasser is that she loves anything that has to do with the lake! We are so lucky that Miss Strasser has joined our team!
Meet our school nurse, Mrs. Kavan Holcomb!! We share Nurse Holcomb with Rome City. I don’t know If you can tell by the picture but she enjoys traveling! Especially if she gets to visit the most magical place on earth!! Mrs. Holcomb is an East Noble alumni and we are so thankful she joined us at South Side!
Next, we would like to introduce Mrs. Ihrie! Also, new to our Trailblazer team but not new to East Noble. Mrs. Ihrie is joining us from Rome City Elementary. In her words, she has known the school for a number of years! Both of her kids attended South Side. Here is a little about her family that she wanted to share. My husband’s name is Chad. We have a daughter, Anna, who attends college in Indianapolis and a son, Carson, who is an 8th grader at East Noble Middle School. Some of my favorite things are photography and taking photos of our family and of nature. I also love spending time with my family and our yellow Labrador, Lambeau. Mrs. Ihrie is part of our third grade team and we are so thankful to call her a Trailblazer!
We would like to introduce you to Mrs. Hannah Crager. She is one of the new members of the Trailblazer team! Mrs. Crager joined our fifth grade team this year. She loves to do DIY projects, cook, and spend time with her family. Some of the things she loves are iced coffee, tea, succulents, cats, Mexican food, and teaching. She mentioned to us that this is her first year teaching and she is so excited to work along side the amazing teachers at South Side Elementary! Welcome to the team Mrs. Crager!!
We are super excited that the Care Mobile will be parked at South Side on Thursday, September 3rd. You will be able to make an appointment directly through the number on the flyer!

Today, Dr. McCormick and Gov. Holcomb made a historic decision to close school facilities until the end of the school year. This means we will continue eLearning three days per week to fulfill the school day requirement. We realize this is challenging for everyone; however, the safety of our students and community must be a primary concern. I realize you must have many questions and, unfortunately, I do not have answers yet. We will continue with the current plan of Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday eLearning days. Expect an update from me late Monday (April 6) that will provide you with additional details. Thank you for your patience. We will get through this, one day at a time. Ann Linson, Superintendent

Nov. 19 is Red for Ed day. We are fortunate to have teacher leaders heading to Indianapolis to represent all of our teachers. At the same time, we are also fortunate to have nearly all of our teachers planning to remain in their buildings tomorrow and teach one of our most precious assets, our students! Don’t be confused by the number who are staying here to teach our students. They, too, believe strongly that districts need to be funded so that we are able to provide the support our students need and the salary our teachers deserve. They believe their profession is extremely important and they create hope, dreams, and a future for our youth which in turn impacts our economy and future. Wear red Tuesday, Nov. 19 to support our teachers and all those who work with students daily. They make a difference in the lives of our 3,600 ENSC students!
