Staff Appreciation Week

You all outdid yourselves. Staff Appreciation Week was phenomenal. Your thoughtful gifts of food, flowers, and food (yes I wrote food twice) were received with joy and amazement by all of our staff. Thanks to the PTO for organizing such a wonderful week. We are blessed to have the support of our families and PTO! Check out the photos below.

Pill Drop at Arrowhead May 12th

The Medical Terminology & Business Practices students at Arrowhead are hosting their 7th annual “Pill Drop” next Friday May 12, 2017 from 6:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. at the Mullett Ice Center. Help us beat last year's record when we collected 831 pounds of prescription and non-prescription drugs.
Start saving any of your unwanted or unused prescription and non-prescription medications to drop off at our event. We would also appreciate you helping spread the word to family and friends. The more people that know about this worthy event, the more we are able to get these medications off our streets, keep them out of the wrong hands and help keep our environment safe.
Any questions can be directed to Laura Miller at millerl@arrowheadschools.org or Annette LeMieux at aclemieux@gmail.com.

Lake Country Mountain Bike Club

On Thursday, May 18th at 6pm I will be hosting an informational meeting for new and returning riders within the Lake Country area for the 2017 interscholastic mountain bike season. If you have any family friends or neighbors that like riding bikes, bring them along!
The meeting will be held at Bicycle Doctor in Dousman. Our new team director, Rick, will also be at the meeting.
Topics that we will go over include:
1. Basic information (what it is and what to expect)
2. Costs (including possible sponsorship opportunities to offset costs)
3. Season schedule (practices days/times, locations, and races)
4. Ways to help out
At the end of the meeting, myself or Rick can assist with registration for the 2017 season. I look forward to seeing new and familiar faces there!
