Thank You!
A big thank you to those who have participated in covering the recent silage piles and to those who have made food. We appreciate the time you have given to help raise money for our school.

If you have not participated yet, there are more opportunities coming. We encourage all families to be involved in covering one or more piles.

For those who have participated, consider inviting someone to come with you. This is new for many of our families and it is nice to go with someone who knows what is going on.
Directory Update
Please update the phone number for the Rob & Heather Hofmeyer family. It should be 712-441-6914. Heather is listed on the Board of Trustees. Please make the change on that page as well.
Duty Free & Visitor Lunches
If you or a family member are coming for lunch, please contact the office by 9:00am on the day you are coming so we can make sure the kitchen prepares enough food. If you are coming as a duty free lunch and are not eating lunch, we still need you to contact the office and let us know you are coming. We are required to keep track of those lunches.
Pictures Retakes
You should have received your picture package last week. If you would like to have your child’s picture retaken, the photographer will be doing retakes Thursday, October 11 at 8:30 am. You must turn in the package you received from the first sitting. If there is not a valid reason to have the picture retaken, you will need to pay your package price again and then you may keep both packages. Students absent the first time are expected to have their pictures taken. Order envelopes are available in the school office.
