Fundraising Update

We had a fantastic turnout with our fundraising this year. We earned $5,560.27. We purchased a merry go round for the kiddos to enjoy (along with Mrs. Luitze) and for students to take field trips. 4K has already gone to Bergeson's Pumpkin Farm. More pictures to come as those field trips happen.

SMART PROGRAM

SMART is "Stimulating Maturity through Accelerated Readiness Training". It is a program that focuses on pre- readiness skills for learning. It involves sensory input, stability, balance, and bilateral coordination movements as well as visual activities. Some activities you may see in school as a part of the SMART program are obstacle courses, movements in the hallway (hopping, jumping, balancing) and finger tracing. By engaging in SMART, children are preparing their bodies to make learning easier for them. It is also a lot of FUN!

Buddy Bench

Ameriprise Financial of Menominee, MI has graciously donated the Buddy Bench. It's purpose is to make every student feel included on the playground and during recess.


  • The bench is not for socializing.
  • They only sit there if they can't find anyone to play with.
  • While on the bench, they are to look around for a game they can join.
  • If they see something they want to do or a friend they want to talk to, they get off the bench.
  • Play with the first classmate that invites them.
  • Keep playing with new friends.


Thank you to Ameriprise Financial for the wonderful asset to our playground.

Little Lice Tidbit

Head lice are spread most commonly by direct head-to-head (hair-to-hair) contact. However, much less frequently they are spread by sharing clothing or belongings onto which lice have crawled or nits attached to shed hairs may have fallen.


To help prevent and control the spread of head lice:


  • Avoid head-to-head (hair-to-hair) contact during play and other activities at home, school, and elsewhere (sports activities, playground, slumber parties, camp).
  • Do not share clothing such as hats, scarves, coats, sports uniforms, hair ribbons, or barrettes.
  • Periodically check your child's hair for evidence of head lice.
  • If you suspect your child has head lice, but are not sure, please contact a medical provider or the school staff to help identify if there is reason for concern.


  • Thank you for helping keep this pest out of our school.
