All library books will be due on May 19.

There will be a summer reading challenge coming out next week.  Reading during the summer will keep their reading skills sharp as well as give them an opportunity to earn prizes when they bring back the sheet in the fall.  There will also be a table of discarded books at the school picnic.  Students will be allowed to take one (or more) to add to their personal reading shelf at home.


Boxtops for Education & Pizza Ranch Wagon Wheels. Please turn in any BOXTOPS  ( trimmed & in groups of 50 is helpful) and WAGON WHEELS by Monday, May 22 thanks!


Tulip Festival Float:

We are planning on K-4th Grade riding the float on Thursday at the 2:00 parade and Preschool, 5th – 8th Grade riding the float on Friday at the 2:00 parade.  We will be taking a bus with the children both afternoons to Orange City and back, so parents are not required to attend the afternoon parades.  We are asking for families to volunteer to come and have their children ride the float for the 6:00 parade on Thursday evening and Friday evening.
