Big picture


We are attending the El Riad Shrine Circus in Sioux Falls tomorrow, April 25. We plan on leaving the school by 10:30 and arriving back by 5. Students will be bused home as indicated on the permission forms. Also, please make sure you send a sack lunch with your child IF YOU DID NOT SIGN UP for one on the form. Students do NOT need any money for this trip.

Lock In

Friday, May 3, we are planning our 3/4th grade Lock In. We will be going to Brookings after school for swimming. We are looking for a few parent volunteers to ride along and help supervise kids while they swim. We are planning to leave around 3:15 and swim until 5:15, then go to CherryBerry, then return to Hendricks approximately at 6:30. PLEASE let me know if you are interested in helping out. The kids will stay with Mr. Eide and myself, overnight. Students will be supervised at all times. We have the whole night planned with activities for the kids. Parents can pick up their children at 7 AM on Saturday morning. Please see me with any questions.

Spring Concert

Note from Ms. Carmody: The concert is May 7th at 7pm. K-4 classes please meet at 6:45 in classrooms. Students will sit as a class on the risers, similar to the Christmas concert. Preschool meet at 6:50 in classroom. There will be chairs in the front for these students to sit in. For this concert, students will wear nice clothes. Preferably no jeans.


Students are expected to read 100 minutes/week. Our next reading log is due Monday, April 29.
