Shout out to Jordyn Kooima. She reached out to outside organizations to speak to our students. We have had a presenter from Her Health coming in to study halls to talk to students about drug use, relationships, etc. This has been happening every other Friday. Just a reminder our 7th and 8th grade team (Team 12356), which is 7 students, earned the Innovation Project Award and punched their ticket to State in Ames on January 28th. On December 20th, we had our middle school holiday concert and the students performed very well. A shout out to Kate Goodwin. Kate will have ICTM (Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics) in her classroom on January 20th. They are interested in her newly adopted teaching this year. We hired Brittney Hansen and Becky Schultzen as long term subs to help each day for staff absences. The Boys’ basketball season will finish this week. The Girls’ basketball season will have their last game on January 26th. A wrestling meeting will be Friday and practice starts January 16th. The first wrestling meet is February 3rd.
