Meet Carson Nasser

Carson Nasser, senior in the Boone EDGE program. He is not sure as to what he is interested in but exploring different fields of work. His willingness to try different things has allowed him to do all sorts of things. His first big project was to help the Boone Chamber of Commerce design a website for the Mamie Eisenhower Birthplace. This project helped him learn how to communicate professionally and make different designs. The first job shadow he went on was with the Boone County Sheriffs, seeing how 911 dispatchers work. Throughout his time in the program, he learned things he does and doesn’t enjoy, and how to react in a professional environment.

After high school, Carson plans to attend DMACC in Ankeny in the fall, while also obtaining a job. He will be going for general education, and hopefully, find his passion.

Boone students had an opportunity to experience a day at Mary Greeley. This was an awesome experience for them. Students experienced surgical tech and radiology hearing about not only a career in these fields but training reimbursement.

Emma VanSickle

Meet Emma VanSickle! Emma is a senior at Boone and this is her second year in the EDGE program. She has an interest in environment restoration and environmental activism. Emma currently just finished an internship at Salama’s Greenhouse where she learned about identifying and taking care of plants. She liked her internship so much that she decided that, with the offer, she would start a job there. Last year Emma and two of her peers, Mabel Overton and Megan Sandegren, worked on a project to instal an environmental signage board within the local Cap Erbe Park. Emma and Mabel spend many months writing and rewriting a REAP CEP Grant and learned a lot about the granting writing process and working with professionals on this. Megan later came in to do the graphic design and photography of this project. Their sign will be going up later this spring. Emma’s future plans include going to Cornell College to double major in Environmental Science and either Sustainability or Political Science. She will also be on the Cornell volleyball team!Emma has been a great example of how the EDGE program flows, going from project to internship, and has stated that she is extremely grateful for the opportunity to explore her interests. Good luck Emma on all your future endeavors! We know you will succeed in whatever you end up doing!

There will be an opportunity for 4 students to participate at each home game. Each participant will receive a t-shirt to wear during the game that they will get to keep.

Free School Breakfast and Lunch for all Students for the 2021-2022 school year

Tasty Toreador Meals - Supply Chain Issues

• This school year, thanks to federal pandemic waivers, all students will be eligible for free meals, regardless of family income.

• School meal programs nationwide are experiencing many of the same supply chain issues that have impacted restaurants and grocery stores throughout the pandemic.

• Our school nutrition team is committed to ensuring students continue to have access to healthy meals each school day.

• Just as families have to make substitutions on grocery lists, schools will have to make some last-minute changes to our regular menus, based on availability.

• We hope parents and students will be patient as we sort through these supply chain issues.

• We may not have the same menu choices that we typically offer our students, but we’ll be sure that all students are nourished and ready to learn.

*Reminder: For students bringing a sack lunch and wanting school milk, there will be a .50 cent charge per carton.


For questions regarding food service and accounts please contact the Food Service department located at Boone Middle School- Lori King, Director, (515) 433-0020 EXT 154.

Toreador Families,

Our "Online Athletics Registration" is live and active for the 2021-22 School Year (link is below). Please take the time to read through the information, and fill out the forms for your student. All students involved in District-Sponsored Athletics in grades 7-12 will need a completed online athletics registration on file, along with a current physical form (physicals are valid for 13 months after the date of the physical). There is a place within the registration to upload the completed physical form.

Completion of the Registration/Physical is not required for the attendance at any summer camps that may be offered. However, the Athletics Registration and Physical Form must be completed and on file before a student may physically participate in practice this Fall. For High School, this starting date is Monday August 9th. Middle School practices will begin a couple weeks later near the first day of school.
