NICOLLET COUNTY FAIR - It is happening NOW. Many of our students have entries at the fair. Stop by to check out their hard work and to show your support! Looking for some helpers (21 years old or older) to help at the fair on Saturday, August 13th. Sign Up Here

SAC (after school care) - If you are interested in SAC for the 2022-2023 school year, please complete a contract and return it to school at the Peek and Picnic or on the first day of school. SAC will be open beginning on Tuesday, September 6th.

SCHOOL STAFF - Please continue to pray for a complete staff for the 2022-2023 school year. I know God has a plan because our enrollment is up by about 15 students. So no need to worry because He will reveal an amazing plan for our school! His timing is definitely not our timing, but we trust that He will take care of things.

Blessings to you!

Our lunch program will go back to a paid program. This means you will be billed for lunches. The cost of a student lunch for K-5 will remain the same at $2.90 which includes lunch and milk. The cost of a student lunch for grades 6-7-8 will be $3.00 which includes lunch and milk. If a student would like just a milk or an additional milk the cost remains the same at $0.35 per carton.

If you would like lunch assistance, you will need to complete this application. Even if you have completed this in the past, it needs to be completed every school year. This application is also on our website, and copies are on the window ledge by the school office. Completed forms can be mailed or dropped off at the school or parish office.

A menu for September will be in next week's newsletter. The first day of school is September 1st.
