2020 Homecoming Info and more!

Hello Pella Families,

We have had a great start to an uncommon year. Students and teachers have done a fantastic job of responding to the many efforts in place to keep people as safe as possible. Even though this year has already been filled with unexpected twists and turns, we feel that we have learned new and improved skills to serve our students and families. We truly couldn't ask for better teachers, students, and families as we make our way through these times. We thank you for your continued support and efforts as we strive to keep our momentum moving forward!
