If anyone would like the musical songs on a CD to listen to at home, please send a blank CD to school with your child and I will get it copied for you.

Music class is still in need of pool noodles.

If your church has shepherd, angel or other period costumes, could you please let Mrs. Kroeze know. They are needed for the musical. Thanks.


 BOXTOPS deadline is October 19, ONE week away.

Please check expiration date, trim and count out into groups of 50. You can send your donations to school or there are donation boxes in Hawarden CRC and Ireton CRC. We raised over $1,000 for our school last year, let’s see if we can do it again this year!



Upcoming order dates are: October 31, November 14, November 28, December 12.

 TRIP questions can be answered by Donna or Nicki at school on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 8:30 – 2:00.

 Orders need to be in the TRIP box in the school office or given to Donna Koopmans by 8:30 AM on order dates in your family envelope. No late orders will be taken. Do not fax or call orders to my house – money needs to accompany orders or they will not be processed. Please try to remind your child to bring the order to their teacher or the office right away when they get to school, so that orders will not be forgotten or late.
