Mr. Brand:
We will begin our Krispy Kreme fundraiser later this week. This will benefit our PBIS program. Our plan is to do another fundraiser in April for middle school athletics. We are coming up on our 6 week mark of the 3rd quarter already. Progress reports will be due later this week.
We also had our all-school incentive of a dodge ball tournament for reaching 2,500 PAWS cards. Our Special Education staff just finished up their last training on the new IEP system called Achieve. On Friday, February 17th, Her Health will be presenting with Zane Chwirka, Woodbury County Sheriff. They will be talking with students about making healthy choices. Our Lego League team competed at the end of January in Des Moines at the Iowa State campus. They earned 3rd place out of 64 teams across the state on their innovation project. Over the weekend, we had 19 students attend a Super Smash Brothers Tournament in Ida Grove. We had one 8th grade student earn 2nd place out of 25 students in the 1vs 1 competition. We also had a team earn 2nd place in the 3 vs 3 competition. Driver’s Education starts on Thursday in Kingsley from 5:00-7:00. We had many students earn Honor Roll for the First Semester and 2nd quarter. We recognized them on January 24th as an Honor Roll assembly. For the first semester we had 26 students that earned A Honor Roll, 7 students earned A Average, 41 students earned the A-B honor roll, and 18 students earned the Honorable Honor Roll. We finished our girls basketball season at the end of January. They finished strong with some wins at the end of the season. Erica Christiansen stepped in to help out Ross Johnson since he was out of town. We will be looking for a middle school boy’s basketball coach for next year. Chris has many commitments at work and is unable to coach. Boys Basketball will have a pizza party on Wednesday supplied by Coach Nissen. We are well into our Wrestling season with starting our practices in the middle of January. The athlete’s first meet was on February 2nd. Since then they have had 3 meets and their 4th meet is today in Sergeant Bluff. We will have our middle school home meet on February 23rd in Kingsley. We will use both gyms and there will be 10 teams attending.

Mr. Bailey:
The ESA or Educational Savings Account did pass and was signed by the governor. We have a few who attend parochial schools, hopefully, we won’t have more choosing to do so. We do receive around $1,200 for the students that do attend. The legislature did pass and the governor did sign the 3% SSA (Supplemental State Aid) for the 2023-24 school year. We had already settled at 3% with the teachers.
It has been a pretty busy time here these past few weeks. With wrestling, basketball, esports, jazz band, etc. This will be the last week of hosting basketball unless some teams get knocked off. We have been asked to host a regional final game. Congrats to our wrestlers for a successful season and wish our state qualifiers the best of luck at state. All School Pep Rally tomorrow at 9:00 a sendoff to our wrestlers. School Safety Report is done.
