May 9, 2017

Tuesday – May 9, 2017
Orange Day
Happy Birthday Dakota Kidder!

Just a reminder that our Rebel Character Counts Board will close on Friday at noon!

Just a warning – all school property and bills must be taken care of before you will receive your report card or diploma!  If Ms. Farrell-Poncelet’s list is an indicator it’s huge!  Parent Portal accounts will soon be disabled!

The reviews are in, Stranded was a big success.  Two great performances on Friday.  Thank you to the cast and crew for all your hard work.  I appreciated everyone helping with the cleanup.  Also, you know the way to my heart, the flowers are beautiful.  Mrs. Danek

Good Luck to the Hanson Ducks as they play SF Christian tonight.

Good Luck to the HS Track team at the 281Conference Track Meet today.

The 4th & 5th grade students are on their field trip today. 

The 3rd grade will do their Pen Pal trip tomorrow!

Lost and Found totes are in the hallway by the office.  Anything left on Friday is gone!

It’s that time of the year that all bills must be paid!  All bills, books, school property must be returned by May 10th to receive your report card or diploma.  Parent Portal accounts will be deactivated on May 9th for those with outstanding bills.   Parents – please pay your bill ahead and avoid the rush!  May has 12 days for grades PK-11 and 10 days for seniors.   If you know that your child/children will be missing any days - subtract those days. Breakfast is $1.95 for PK-12; Lunch is $2.55 for PK-5th, and $2.80 for 6-12th.  Ala Carte items are still the same price.  Please multiply out what you anticipate your child will be eating, add that to the bill you will receive any day now.   Questions about your account – contact Gayle gayle.bechen@k12.sd.us
