Picture Days

We have two picture days scheduled this year.

November 3 - All students who attend school in person will get their picture taken

November 5 - All distance learners will get their picture taken. If you cannot come on Thursday, just come on Tuesday and we will fit you in. The picture people will be here from 7:30-10 each day. Please come in that timeframe. Students can enter through the gym doors and a staff member will let them in. We are limiting visitors in our building so we are asking parents to wait outside. Picture packets will come home in the next week.

Veteran's Day Program

Please watch our Virtual Veteran's Day Program this year over Zoom on November 11 at 10:30 AM. https://team-k12-mn-us.zoom.us/j/81251369918 Each classroom will have a part in the program. We would love it if you can share the link out with any Veterans that you know! It is on our website and Facebook Page too.

Fall Concert

Get ready for a different Fall Concert this year! We invite you to join your student's music class over Zoom on Wednesday, November 25. You can find the link in your student's Google Classroom for Music. The link and time will also be sent home before the concert.

Distance Learning Materials Pickup

We hope our new system for our distance learners to pick up materials is working well. The bins are outside the main doors or in the entryway during the week. All of your student’s materials will be in one plastic folder with their name on it in the pick up bin. Use this same folder the next week to return any materials to school when you pick up their new folder of materials. New materials will be in the bins on Tuesdays for pickup, but bins will remain in the entryway all week long.

Daily COVID Screening

Parents you are doing an excellent job of screening your child and keeping them home if they are sick! This is one of the best things we can be doing to keep COVID out of our school. There is a new free saliva testing site in Mankato. You can make an appointment here: https://mncovidtestingappt.as.me/schedule.php

Scholastic Online Book Fair

Our Book Fair will be online from November 16-29. Please share the link with family and friends! https://www.scholastic.com/bf/teamacademy

Applebee's Dining to Donate

We are excited to try our first Dining to Donate event with Applebee's in Owatonna! The event will go from 11:00am to 8:00pm on November 17 and all orders must be placed through Car Side ToGo app. When you come to pick up your order, give the flyer to the ToGo specialist.

The specialist will attach a copy of the guests receipt to the flyer and those receipts and flyers will be used to determine the amount of money that was raised for our organization on that day. Flyers are attached to this newsletter, on our website and Facebook Page. Extras will be in our main office too. Please hand them out to your friends and family.

Scentsy Fundraiser

Our Scentsy Fundraiser will be November 20-December 3. Product will arrive before our Holiday break! More information will be sent home with students by November 20.

Student Pickup

When picking up students at the end of the day, please do not pull up in front of the school between 2:45-3:10. We need this space for busses to safely pick up students. Please park in the parking lot and walk up to the sidewalk to get your student.

Limiting Visitors

We are limiting visitors in our building this year. If you come to school during the day, please call our main office 507-833-8326 and someone will come out to assist you. The doors will be locked at 3:15 each day so parents will need to call the main line or their child's teacher if you need to pick up early. Our after school program goes until 4:00 so we encourage parents to wait until then to pick up your child if they stay.
