Message for Senior Parents

From the School Counselor: For the Seniors!

We are officially into scholarship season and the seniors are counting down the days (23 to be exact, until their last day of school!). Scholarship applications have been coming into my office, as students were given them two weeks ago. We will have our Senior Awards Night on Wednesday, May 10 at 7 p.m.

There few scholarships (not affiliated with the school scholarships, but can still be acknowledged at our awards night) have later deadlines. They are listed below!

  • Mitchell County Environmental Education Foundation (Due April 3)
  • Glenn VanSabben Memorial Scholarship (due April 15)
  • Ag Coop Safety Directors of Iowa (Due April 28)
  • Pearl Hull Falk (MidwestOne Bank - due May 1)
  • Riceville Student Council (due May 1)

Additionally, if students receive any outside scholarships from outside the school/that I am not aware of, they can still be acknowledged at awards night! Please send them to school with a letter or some other form of proof that states that the student has received it, and we will add it to our awards night list!

Finally, please remember that the Phone-a-Thon is this coming Monday, April 3rd, at 6:30. This will only run for about an hour. Seniors, please plan to attend!!

As always, feel free to contact me by calling the school at 641-985-2288 or emailing me at jaden.bohr@riceville.k12.ia.us. I am in the building Monday-Friday from 7:45-3:45.

Have a great weekend, Wildcats!!

Riceville PHYSICS

The physics class has been busy participating in local STEM competitions. In February, they were part of the Engineering Design Competition held at St Ansgar. Ashley Koenigs, Morgan Fair, and Adrian Balchen built a machine with fifteen steps to complete their goal of lighting up a space station. In March, the physics class, along with Camdyn Orth and Taylor Hemann, participated in the cardboard boat races at the CRC in Osage. They designed, built, and raced boats made from cardboard. They also solved boat-related physics problems and did a presentation for judges
