National Distinguished School "Ice Cream" Celebration!!
We had our National Distinguished School Celebration on Friday, November 5. SD Secretary of Education, Tiffany Sanderson told our students that we are consistently in the top 5% of SD elementary schools, or top 16 out of 320 schools. She told us that this year we were in the top 2 out of 320 schools! Our students walked the red carpet, stated their positive affirmations, and listened to submitted videos. The event ended with a pep rally for our football team.

Today is Winter Weather Preparedness Day in South Dakota. We want to take the opportunity to remind everyone that children will be expected to wear a coat, hat, gloves, and appropriate winter gear when the weather is cold. We ask that they wear snow boots, different from shoes worn in the school building, to assist our custodians in keeping our school facilities clean. (when the snow falls.....) If you need assistance with any of the winter weather gear listed above, please contact Kristen Konechne or me at the school and we will make sure your child has the needed items. We also have coats, hats, and gloves in the office that we loan to students who forget their gear. Thank you!
