Fall Barn Bash is tonight!

I know September has been very busy so far as everyone gets adjusted to the new school year. Right around the corner is our (casual) first Barn Bash, Friday, September 26th at Ironwood Golf Course from 6-11 p.m to support a new gym. While the gym is at the Primary School, our Intermediate students also use the facility so we do appreciate your support! We have been getting inquiries on sponsorships and on the Barn Bash.

For our $100-$300 metal art sponsorships, please see the information that Mr. Russ sent out in an email on September 10th.

For business and corporate sponsorships, please contact Cathy James at cathyjames59@aol.com. We have some exciting opportunities to give your business exposure while supporting our children! These range from $1,000 to $6,000.

The Registration Form for our Barn Bash, which is sure to be fun, is also found in Mr. Russ' September 10th email. We'll begin at 6:00 at Ironwood. It's casual attire for our dinner, raffle, Comedy Sportz show and DJ entertainment.

7th and 8th grade make up work after absence

As the school year progresses, from time to time students will be absent from school. When this happens, there are two things you and your child can do to see what work they have missed. First, your child can see the assignments they have missed by checking the student access to the Skyward calendar. If they have questions about anything in the Skyward calendar, they can either email the teacher or meet with the teacher upon their return for any clarification. Many of our textbooks have online access and some of our teachers also have websites containing valuable information about their classes. Please don't hesitate to contact your child's teachers if you need further assistance.

General Mills Box Tops Contest October 6th-16th!

The Fall General Mills Box Tops for Education contest kicks-off on Monday, October 6th! Please collect all of those Box Tops you’ve saved and send them to school with your child any time during the contest duration, which is Monday, October 6th through Thursday, October 16th.

As always, we ask for your help in sending Box Tops in pre-counted baggies of 50 each. Simply write 50 on the baggie with a permanent marker and we’ll know they are pre-counted. (Bags with a different total amount on them still have to be re-counted into 50’s here at school.)

If you have questions about this information please contact Michelle Ramus at (262) 468-4029 or ramusml@yahoo.com

Homework Club starts September 30th!

Homework Club begins next Tuesday, September 30th and will run nearly every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the school year. Students have a quiet place to do homework in the library and get assistance with homework, if needed. There is no need to sign up. Your child can just show up and we will make sure they have a good place to work. Homework Club is scheduled from 4:15-5:15PM.

Homecoming at Arrowhead

Homecoming will be Friday, October 3rd with the game vs Waukesha North starting at 7:00 pm. Gates and tickets sales will open at 5:30 pm.

The change this year is that the parade is being moved to Sunday, September 28 at 4:30 pm starting at Church Street in Hartland and moving through Capitol Drive and North Avenue to the Arrowhead Stadium. There we will hold a staff vs Arrowhead student flag football game, and have a bonfire, food vendors and music until 9:00 pm that the entire community is welcome to come be apart of. Changing the parade date allows this to be a community affair and our football players will even get to be in the parade!

Sunday, September 28
  • Homecoming Parade at 4:30--start on Church Street
  • Staff vs. Student Football Game at 6:00--Football Stadium
  • Bonfire at 7:00--Freshmen Softball Fields
For groups wanting to have a float in the parade you can go to the Arrowhead website to download the form:
