From the Desk of Ellen Knippel, Principal

Dear Parents,
Happy New Year! Welcome back on this blustery day! Even though the weather isn't the nicest, I think we are all ready to get back into the swing of school once again!

This week we will be beginning MAP testing. Students will be testing at various times this week and next. Your child's teacher will let you know times. Please try not to schedule appointments when testing will occur. Scores can be very different when students have to make up tests. We really appreciate your help with this.
  • Mark your calendars for Open House on Sunday, January 27th from 10 - 1pm.
  • With sadness we announce the death of Ms. Duellman-Arndt's father, Edward Duellman. Please keep Ms. Duellman-Arndt and her family in your prayers. Services are pending.
  • The end of the 2nd quarter will be on Thursday, January 24th. Friday, January 25th is an early (11:30) dismissal day. EDC will be available, but we will need preregistration in order to adequately staff. If you have a standing registration for that day, please confirm.
Blessings!
Mrs. Ellen Knippel
