Gatlin Doney and Reece Burket were nominated for the Good News Call by Mrs. Amy Rolland. Mrs. Rolland's class left school yesterday and their hallway was left in a mess. The students PE shoes and bags were left on the floor and things were in disarray in their hallway. Gatlin and Reece noticed what had happened and they quickly stepped in and straightened the entire hallway for Mrs. Rolland. That is exactly what we like to see boys, students who notice what needs to be done; and then they step in and do it.....without even being told to do so by a teacher. Thanks for noticing the mess boys and for cleaning it up, even when YOU didn't make the mess. We appreciate the kind and thoughtful gesture! Thanks for being AWESOME, Reece and Gatlin!

Wyatt Greisse was nominated for the Good News Call by Mrs. Knecht. A student was not ready to come in from the recess playground and Wyatt stepped in and assisted Mrs. Knecht by encouraging the student and convincing him it was indeed time to come in. Thank you Wyatt for noticing that Mrs. Knecht needed help and for stepping in and helping her out. I appreciate your help very much and I couldn't have done the task myself!! Thank you for being a great kid, Wyatt!!

*Thank you to Ashley Frederick and her family for the donation of Tupperware water bottles for students. Through her Tupperware business and other individual donations, she was able to donate three water bottles per elementary classroom. In total, we received over 50 water bottles for student use from Ashley and her family. These water bottles have been distributed to each elementary classroom for teachers to give to students needing a water bottle. We also have several left in the office for student use.

*Thank you to the South Dakota National Guard for their donation of water bottles to our students. They have been distributed to students forgetting their watter bottle for the day or needing one for their use. Trust me when I say, we are putting these water bottle donations to very good use.

*Thank you to our local Modern Woodmen Insurance Office and Lynn Walstad and Marcella Strand for another kind and generous donation to our school. We received six infared thermometers for our use in taking temperatures of ill children and adults in our buildings. We placed these thermometers in both buildings for our use in the continued effort toward student and staff health and wellness. Modern Woodmen Insurance also donated 3 UVC lamps which we will use in our STEAM classroom, overnight and between classes when students and staff are not in the room, to clean and disinfect the shared materials.
(According to the US Food and Drug Administration .....UVC radiation is a known disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces. UVC radiation has effectively been used for decades to reduce the spread of bacteria. For this reason, UVC lamps are often called "germicidal" lamps.)

Dear Platte Geddes Elementary Parents;
Next week, September 21-25 is Homecoming here at Platte Geddes Schools. We are celebrating Homecoming with the theme of "Homecoming through the Decades". We will observe the dress up days each day next week with the HS students. We will also take part in the Homecoming Parade on Friday beginning at 10:30 am. Your child's classroom teacher will provide specific information as to their parade theme and student attire. I have listed for you the dress up days as well as our plan for the Homecoming Parade on Friday. Please read the information below and pass along to any other parents you feel may not see this information.
As always, we are so thankful for another great week of "in person" school and of continued health. Thank you for sending us such a group of wonderful and joyful children! It is a pleasure to come to work and see them each day! Have a wonderful weekend ahead!

Dress Up Days...
Monday ~ PJ Day....Students and Staff Members may wear PJ's to School
Tuesday ~ Groutfit Day/Hat Day.....Students and Staff Members may wear "all grey outfits" and add a HAT for fun!
Wednesday ~ America.....Wear RED, WHITE, and BLUE
Thursday ~ Dress in your favorite Decade Apparel
Friday ~ Maroon and White ~ Go PANTHERS

Homecoming Parade Information.....
*The parade will start at 10:30 am. Our students will all walk in the parade.

*Our students in grades K-2 will walk a shortened parade route. They will start at Severson Service Station entering the parade between Severson's and the theatre. They will walk to the lot at Stekly Law Office. K-2 students will watch the parade from this lot. We will then have parents who are able to do so, pick up their child following the parade at the Stekly Law Office lot. Please inform your child's teacher if this will NOT work for you. (We will have the Stekly Law Office lot RESERVED for Elementary Students, so please spread the word that we will be using that lot for elementary students.)

*Students in grades 3-5 will walk the entire parade route. They will stop along the parade route and watch the parade and then walk back to our north parking lot and be released from school to walk home or be picked up by a parent. Again, please communicate with your child's classroom teacher if you have specific instructions.

Please call the office if you have questions about any of our Homecoming plans for next week.

Thank you, Jennifer
