From the District Administrator's Office
It took a while for Mother Nature to deliver, but it looks like we can be assured of a "White Christmas". There is something that makes Christmas special when we have a fresh blanket of snow to tuck us in.
As 2016 draws to a close, and we look forward to the opportunities that 2017 will bring, please take some time to reflect and look forward as to how you can make a positive impact on someone. Even the smallest act of kindness is very much appreciated.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all from our family to yours!
-- Mr. Hanson
From the Elementary Principal's Office
We had a jolly guest reading that stopped by from the North Pole for our reading night this week. Along with the reading the students were able to make a card, play a jingle bell toss game, earn a free book, and make a reindeer treat to eat.
I am looking forward to the concerts next week because the kids have been putting in extra time to master their songs and lines. Please make sure you join us if you can. It should be a great time!
As we wrap up the 2016 year I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
-- Mr. Ross
From the Middle/High School Principal's Office
The planning committee for the 10th annual cancer benefit is off and running and I am excited about all of the ideas the Middle and High School groups have come up with this year to help raise money. One activity in particular is that Middle School resource groups will be creating lip sync videos to share with the community in order to raise funds. If you or your business would be interested in sponsoring one of these videos, please contact me for details.
Sixth grade students are once again helping Mrs. Stewart and Mrs. Cody organize the t-shirt design contest. Student designs were due to the office by the end of the day today and you will soon be able to vote for your favorite design on Facebook.
As you gather with your families and loved ones over our holiday break to celebrate Christmas, I want to extend my season’s greetings to you and your family!
-- Mrs. Schley
From the Athletic Director's Office

Good Luck to everyone and have a joyous and Merry Christmas!

Here is a dish my children ask for every Christmas. This may not be the healthiest recipe, but sometimes you just have to splurge! Of course there are ways to make it a little better for you, like using fat free sour cream, low sodium or fat free cream of chicken soup, reduced fat cheese, olive oil instead of butter, skip the bacon (EEK!), however all those things will all effect the flavor of the dish. So go ahead and get outside for extra exercise after dinner. Build a snowman, make snow angels, go sledding, have a snowball fight (no ice balls please). Then, maybe when you come inside make some hot cocoa! After all, chocolate has a lot of good antioxidants in it.
Enjoy your Christmas break and best wishes for a very happy 2017!
