We've Got Spirit!!

An abundance of school spirit has been present here this week at the school as we have celebrated homecoming week. All grade levels have taken part in dress up days and our secondary students participated in a community pride events this morning, provided a community lunch, pep-rally this afternoon, and the day will conclude with powderpuff activities and bonfire this evening. The homecoming games will be played tomorrow against the Dayspring Christian Eagles with football beginning at 1p.m. and volleyball at 4 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join us for the activities tonight and the homecoming games tomorrow.

Go Rams!!

Did You Know?

Did you know that the Akron School District has a very committed and active District Accountability Committee? This committee is considered to be an advisory committee to our school’s Board of Education. They also serve the District as our “1338 Council”, holding the school district administration accountable to ensuring the state required Educator Effectiveness, or teacher evaluation, rules are followed. The District Accountability Committee (DAC) advises the Board with school calendar adoption decisions, is integral in providing input for the Student-Centered Accountability Project, analyzing school needs while advising administration and accomplishes any other school district related work that the Board of Education asks of them. It is required that membership represents all areas of our school and community. This year’s DAC is led by Chairman, Corby Kneedler. Elected student members are Caleb Hansen (Freshman), Anderson Filla (Sophomore), Brock Swedlund (Junior) and Hunter Molt (Senior). Community members and parent representatives serving are Jim Gebauer, Monica Hunt, Anne Mason, Jennifer Brown and Dan Jensen. Teacher members include Kilee Vogt, Megan Reid, Hannah Krening and Bethany Brent. The District Accountability Committee is required to meet 4 times annually. Ours meets 5 times and additionally as needed. The membership and calendar of topics covered is approved annually by our School Board.

Chairman Corby Kneedler states that, “Serving on District Accountability Committee is a great way to be involved in our school. We encourage those interested in joining to visit with administration about becoming a member.”

Safety Lessons

THANK YOU Washington County Sheriff's Department and Akron Fire Department, for providing our elementary students with safety lessons and for the bags of goodies! We are blessed to have a great community wrapping around our school!

Be An Encourager!!

Often the difference between success and failure is belief, and this is often instilled in us by someone who encourages us. Be an encourager today. Be someone who instills a positive belief in others.

High School Football

The Akron High School football team traveled to Haxtun last Friday to take on the top ranked Bulldogs. Ram turnovers and miscues hampered the cause as the Rams fell 48-14. The J.V. team played Haxtun on Monday and showed a lot of promise despite losing 36-22. The Rams will look to get back on track against Dayspring on Saturday.

Go Rams!

High School Volleyball

The Akron Lady Rams volleyball team lost their contests against Haxtun and Weldon Valley this past week. The ladies continue to work hard and are showing improvement and resilience with each game. The Rams will be in action this Saturday against Dayspring Christian.

Go Lady Rams!

Middle School Football

Our MS football players ended their season with a game on the road at Byers.

The boys showed a lot of improvement over the season. Way to work hard all season players and coaches!
