LIW Round-Up

De Smet, SD

February Update

Keep your fingers crossed for enough snow for 1st and 2nd grade students to have snowshoeing next week! See the dates below.


Reminder, the computer lab is open at 7:50am for students in grades 3-5 to work on a reading program. This is a perfect time to take advantage of the program and gain some new skills. Students can also access Reading Plus at home. Let Mrs. Abi know if you have questions about it! Students who complete 3 lessons each week in February (outside of class time) will earn a ticket to a game hour to play board games


It's hard to believe we are over 100 days into the school year - check out some of Mrs. Fast's students that have aged quite a bit this school year!

National Geography Bee

Students in grades 4-8 competed in the National Geography Bee. The top two students from each grade level then competed against one another to determine the final winner. 5th grade student, Noah Beck, will be moving on to the state competition in April. Good luck Noah!

Advisory Time

LIW has teamed up with the De Smet Middle School & High School during their advisory time. Advisory time is when students of all different grade levels in the MS/HS building split into groups to form new relationships with one another and staff members. Once a month, the middle school groups and high school groups come to LIW to expand these positive relationships with our students. We have done team building activities, art projects, and read with our new friends. Elementary students are excited to have these role models in their classrooms!

Looking for apps for your child?

I've had several parents ask how to find the best apps for iPads or tablets. One popular website is smartappsforkids.com. You can sign up to receive a list of free apps on Fridays. This list includes apps that are normally $0.99 to $15.99. They are only free if you download them on Friday and then they go back to regular price. Check it out if you are looking for fun learning apps!
