The JOG-A-THON will be held on Oct. 11 (Rain date – Oct 13).  The sponsor sheets will be coming home with your student today.  Please talk to grandparents, friend & even neighbors to see if they are willing to support your child & their school.  They can pledge per lap or a lump sum amount.  This is a great way for our students to support THEIR school.  Details for the event are explained on the sponsor sheets.  PLEASE have them filled out and back to school by Monday, Oct. 9, the day after Heartland Convention break!!  If you have questions, please call Angela Dekkers or JinHee Klompien.

We will be doing Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes again this year in November.  Now is a great time to start buying school supplies while they are cheap.  If you have questions, please ask Tammy Sieck.  Thanks!

With harvest approaching, school will be out of a bus driver for the west bus route.  We want parents to be aware that there might be days when we will be notifying you that other arrangements must be made for you to get your child(ren) to school and picked up.  So, please start planning accordingly with car pools, etc.  Thank you in advance for being so understanding.  If you know of anyone who is interested in driving bus, please let Marlin know.
