LIW Round-Up

De Smet, SD

reach EVERY STUDENT, EVERY DAY

Spring is here!

Mother nature must have missed the memo that it is springtime! We are anxious for warmer days and fresh air! There are a lot of dates in today's newsletter because it is a busy time of year. April is recognized as Month of the Military Child. We would like to support the Gigov family by wearing purple on April 22nd. This is also the day that we will travel to Brookings for the SDSU Children's theater performance, Frog and Toad.
