Kidsmartz and NetSmartz Safety Lessons, K-8

Our students will learn safety lessons using a website called "KidSmartz". This program offers resources to help parents, caregivers and teachers protect kids by teaching and practicing the four rules of personal safety using tips, printable activities, quizzes, articles, videos, and more.

KidSmartz was created by the child safety experts at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

The four lessons for K-5 focus on the following:

1. Check First: Explain the importance of checking first with a trusted adult and let them know where you are going.

2. Take a Friend: Explain why they are safer with a friend.

3. Tell People "No": Explain why they have a right to stand up for themselves and practice saying "no" with authority.

4. Tell a Trusted Adult: Describe situations they should report to a trusted adult. Who are trusted adults?

Explain the KidSmartz rules in their own rules.

Parent Resources:

Students in grades 6-8 will be using NetSmartzKids program.

NetSmartz is NCMEC's online safety education program. It provides age-appropriate videos and activities to help teach children be safer online with the goal of helping children to become more aware of potential online risks and empowering them to help prevent victimization by making safer choices on- and offline.

Thank you to our Fish Fry Coordinators

A big shout out to our Fish Fry Coordinators: Angie Thissen, Liz Johnson, Patrick Harty, and Beth/Keli Hippen. We had a great kitchen crew along with our volunteers that prepared our orders and greeted our customers at the door.

Our middle schoolers were amazing. We had a group of approximately 10 students each night that were our runners to the kitchen. Our students are always there to lend a helping hand. It is what makes our community a great place to be!

Thank you to all our families for ordering food at our Fish Fry this year. We appreciate your support.

Would you like to purchase a case of fish?

We have a few cases of fish left from the Fish Fry? Each case has approximately 30 pieces of fish. We are selling them for $60.00. Please contact Karen if you are interested.

1st Communion Retreat for our 2nd graders

On Saturday, March 20th, our 2nd graders had their 1st Communion retreat. They learned about the monstrance, Adoration, and went on a church tour with Fr. Pedersen. They also learned that the Eucharist is food for their souls.

The students make their 1st Communion on Sunday, May 2nd.

April Lunches are ready to order!

Traveling out of state

The School Advisory Council reviewed our travel policy last Wednesday night and we have decided to continue with our current travel policy until the end of the year. We have been very fortunate that we have had very few COVID cases at school and we want to continue with our current safety protocols. We know there are always certain circumstances, so please contact Karen Bursey to talk about your trip and the expectations for when you return.

Travel Policy

If students/staff travel out of state, then one of the following will be required:

1. Students/staff may return after 7 days as long as a COVID test is taken 3-5 days after returning from your trip and the test is negative.

2. Students/staff may return after 14 days if NO COVID test was taken after you returned from your trip.
