Welcome October! If you blinked, you certainly missed September. As the leaves begin to change colors, and the temperatures slowly fall, our students are settling in to their daily routines. I’d like to officially welcome Dr. Michael Lee to our district. Dr. Lee is our new Director of Special Education and School Psychologist. We are very happy to have him on board and wish him success in his new position.
October also brings our annual Halloween parade and class parties for grades PK – 5. Keep an eye out for the date announcements and times. Classroom menus for the parties have been set and we ask that anyone providing a food item please stay within the acceptable guidelines. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our nurses - Mrs. Smith at the Nokomis School and Mrs. Reilly at the Neeta School. As always, we appreciate your continued support and hope your October is a smooth one. October 25 – 27 are we will be hosting our annual parent/teacher conferences. Please check the school calendar for the times.
Finally, a special thank you to all of our community groups for their time and efforts in supporting all of the programs we offer. A very special thank you to the MLEF who once again donated nearly $20,000 towards our technology initiatives; fully funded a facelift on the Nokomis library; and approved the purchase of a 3-D printer for our middle school science program. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible!
