A Message from Mrs. Gochenour, 5-12 Principal

Inserted Image

February and March are upon us and with this comes State playoffs, speech competitions, jazz band and show choir competitions. As students have full schedules outside the school day, they will also continue to be busy inside the classrooms as we remain focused on preparing our students for life after high school.

In December we were notified that our Media Storytelling received a $52,000.00 grant from the Jimmy King Foundation. Our grant project focuses on developing our audio-visual production for our Media Storytelling courses. The courses in the Media Storytelling sequence build students’ competencies in journalism, photography, video, and graphic design. The ultimate objective is to provide students with the skillset necessary to become proficient in all types of media communication, so they are successful in college and future employment. We would like to thank the Jimmy King Foundation for their donation and can’t wait until we are up and running.

Iowa Assessments will be administered February 20-28. The students will take the assessments online and scores will be available immediately.

This is the time of year we begin making decisions for the next school year.  

In March, Mr. Hedger will begin meeting with all 8th -11th grade students to schedule classes for next year. Please talk to your child(ren) about the importance of the courses they take in high school. The courses taken and how well they apply themselves is important for high school success, but essential for post-secondary success. Both you and your child will have access to the Course Description Handbook with information on classes available for the 2018-2019 school year. Read through this with your child so you have information ready when you come to registration night. As we near this date, we will be sending out more information.

Seniors, please make sure you are aware of scholarship due dates. The school

year will be over before you know it. Don’t miss out on a scholarship because you

missed the deadline.

Please keep visiting our district web page for updates on school activities. Students love to see the community attend their events …
