Please remember to check the district’s Virtual Backpack for activities and events that are available to students.


Here is the link to our Connected PTO group to keep up on their current events which support our students.


Students, there have been many damages to the Macbook Airs lately. Please reread the MacBook Policy. In it, it states that IT reserves the right to charge you full price for a repair or even the full price of the computer in cases of negligence. Negligence can be considered liquid spills, screen breaks, drops, etc. Please be careful with your machine. Some of those repair bills can be upwards of $600!  Thank you . . . .


The 7th grade girls basketball teams split against Marshalltown. The A-team won 57-2, and the B-team lost 10-26. The A-team was lead by Haidyn Hull, Bailey Strovers, and Kelsey Van Compernolle with 13, 11, and 9 points respectively. The B-team was lead by AJ Horan picking off passes and taking it coast to coast scoring 6 points. Zoe Stoner add the other two baskets.
