September 09, 2018
Storytime Village Literacy Champions, Sonali Bhakta, Elly Boshers, Laura Cunningham, Victoria George, and Janai Jennings rose early Saturday morning to attend the Literacy Festival's Rise Breakfast at Wichita State University. They were recognized for their leadership, community service, and literacy advocacy. One of the highlights of the breakfast was seeing Taye Diggs and his life-long friend, and illustrator of his children's books, Shane Evans. Also recognized was fourth grader Ta'Lyiah Lewis for her book she wrote and illustrated this summer Star and the Big Choice and Ms. Ann Garvey for her sponsorship and support of Storytime Village Programs. We thank Prisca Barnes, President and CEO of Storytime Village for the books that were donated to our lower school and the continued opportunity to participate in the Literacy Championship program.

Mural Art

Mural Art

September 04, 2018
As you drive around the campus you will notice a bright and bold mural reminiscent of our Wichita flag. The art piece was designed and painted by Independent senior, Grace Gill, and is the result of an item offered at the Wanderlust auction last year. A friend of the school made a generous donation to support Independent's annual fund and, in exchange, had the opportunity to include his grandchildren's names in the mural. It was a great way to beautify the space and support the school at the same time. Grace volunteered more than 50 hours of her already busy life to create this piece. Thank you to all who made this happen!
