Good afternoon. Thank you all for your patience and cooperation. At 5:00 p.m. central time today, the general public will be able to order tickets to the state football championships in Vermillion for this weekend. Tickets can be ordered either by phone at 605-677-5959 or by email at tickets@usd.edu. Of special note, as live representatives are limited and unable to take each call live, please leave a voicemail or send an email to the USD ticket office if you do not have your call answered by a representative. Those messages will be returned as soon as the next representative becomes available to do so. Walk up sales will also be available for contest in Vermillion on the day of the games. Should any contests sell out, we will send out a notification to statewide media and schools. Thank you! Dr. John Krogstrand Asst. Exec. Director SDHSAA

Maverick Maydew was nominated for the Good News Call by Mrs. Dewet. Mrs. Dewet has noticed that Maverick comes to the library every day for reading interventions ready to work. Maverick works hard staying focused and taking his time to always do his very best work. Most days, Maverick is the last one to leave the library because he walks around every table making sure all the chairs are pushed in for the next group of students. Thank you, Maverick for being ready to work hard each and every day and for helping me keep the library in tip top shape. Maverick, we appreciate your kindness, thoughtfulness, and your help in school. Thanks for being such a great kiddo!

This Good News Call goes out to Harbour Wallace! Harbour was nominated by Mrs. Gloria Kok. This morning Harbour noticed a student that was having a tough morning and didn't want to go outside for recess. Harbour took the time to go over and help the student get their hat and mittens on to go outside. He encouraged the student to come outside with him and play, and it worked. Thank you Harbour for taking the time to notice that another student wasn't having a great day and for helping out a friend that needed a little boost. Way to go Harbour!! We are proud of you and we appreciate the kindness shown to others.

We have another Good News Call going out this week to Merrick Kimball. Merrick was nominated for the Good News Call by his teacher, Mrs. Nicole DeVries. Merrick was caught helping another student stack the chairs at her table at the end of the day. The other kids at her table were gone, so he noticed that she needed some help and he went right over to help her. Thank you Merrick for watching out for the other students in our class and for taking the initiative to help, even if no one told you to! Keep up the great work Merrick!

Aren't these two the cutest littles you've seen all day? 😊😊❤️❤️ Jacoby Severson and Bowen Michael were nominated for the Good News Call by Mrs. Sandy DuFrain. Jacoby and Bowen noticed a hole in the playground, and they took the "initiative" (our word of the week....) to fill the hole with rocks so that no one would step in it and get hurt. Their act of kindness and respect for others was noticed by Mrs. Sandy DuFrain. Bowen and Jacoby, thank you for modeling our word of the week "initiative" and for noticing a potential problem for others and helping us take care of it. We appreciate your very KIND and RESPECTFUL act. And we LOVE your beautiful smiles and the happiness you bring to our school each and every day! Thanks for being such great kiddos!
