Remember the Play

Our Intermediate School students, under the direction of Ms. Kohnert and Mr. Werni, are presenting "30 Reasons Not to be in a Play" this weekend, Friday and Saturday. Signs are posted around our schools. Children in grades 3 and 4 had a chance to see the dress rehearsal on Thursday afternoon. Thanks for coming. Mike

He Was Terrific As Usual

We had the pleasure of hosting our annual visit from Rondal McDonald Tuesday in our cafeteria. Evey child had a chance to hear Ronald present on being an everyday leader. He had some wonderful audience participation and some lucky students appeared up in front with Ronald too. I hope your children could share some of his awesome points-there were four of them.

He wanted to thank Ronald

This boy asked if he could talk to Ronald and thank him for his speech about leadership. Ronald took the time to have a terrific conversation with him about how he can make a difference when he talks with others. The young man also shared many of his ideas with Ronald too.

Still learning

Mr. B gave the new vehicle for the buildings and grounds dept. a test drive. He was learning about the controls from Mr. Nettesheim and Mr. Zuercher. Learning is always challenging, and fun too.

Let's keep the learning going until the final day. There are many good things to learn and practice-let's not forget to practice. We don't always get it right the first time. Practice is a very good thing,
