Summer Reading
Bring your summer reading logs to back to school night on August 24! If you finished 10 or more weeks this summer you will get an additional prize. And if you missed turning in your log any weeks this summer you can get your prizes for those weeks. Weather permitting, Mrs. Wielenga will be on the basketball court with the prizes.
Sack Pack Program
Please see the attached link for information on the program and to sign up:
7th/8th grade volleyball
If your daughter is playing middle school volleyball, please make sure a completed sports physical and concussion form are turned into the school office by the time practice starts.
Silage Piles
We are planning to cover silage piles again this year. We anticipate starting this by the end of August. We would ask that each family help out at one pile at least. We will also be requesting food items to be brought in for the workers. This is a great fundraiser for our school and many hands are needed!
