This week our second grade classrooms had a special presentation provided by the South Dakota Highway Patrol. Officer Lantz and a trooper with the SDHP brought in a Drug Dog to visit our students. The troopers told the students about the important work done by drug dogs in our State. Officer Lantz told the kids to "ALWAYS SAY NO to Drugs" and to "ALWAYS wear their seat belts". Thank you to Office Lantz and the SD Highway Patrol for visiting our school and for the important message they gave our students.

Dear Platte-Geddes Elementary Parents,

We have made a few changes to the Future Panther Basketball Program to include more students; and due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We felt that fewer students would be attending games in person this year. We also felt that it would not be wise to have our young students on the basketball court prior to a basketball game. Therefore, we to have invited our high school basketball players to bring the basketballs and t-shirts to the classrooms each week.

We started the program today with Mrs. Holleman's Kindergarten classroom. The basketball players drew student names for the t-shirt and for the basketball. (All players who come into our classrooms wear their masks and only removed them briefly for the photo.)

Pictured above are basketball players Will Miller and Avery DeVries along with Mr. Cutler; PG Athletic Director and Head Boys' Basketball Coach.

This week's winners:

Remi Reddick won the basketball (donated by Miller Insurance and Tim & Linda Whalen).

Mila Duffy won the t-shirt (donated by Platte Food Center and C&D Electric).

Jennifer Knecht
Elementary Principal/SPED Director
Platte-Geddes School District
