Court House Visit/Farm Safety Program

On April 15, our 3rd graders will be making a trip to the County Court House for a tour of the facility and an overview of our judicial system.  Later that afternoon, they will stop at Dale and Ruth Gerding’s farm for the annual Farm Safety Presentation sponsored by the Putnam County Health Dept.

 

National Volunteer Week – April 6-13

Each week, we have five volunteers that come in to read with our elementary students via the Project More Program.  A big Thank You goes out to Mrs. Janice Schlagbaum, Mr. Virgil Hohlbein, Mrs. Carol Hellman, Mrs. Dorothy Helmke and Mrs. Carol Giesken. 

Pop Tab Contest

The pop tab contest is underway.  The final day to turn in tabs is Thursday, April 17.

 

Spring Safety

With spring weather just around the corner, we will soon see an increase in the number of bicyclist out and about.  May their presence serve as a reminder to us to use extra caution as our children make their way to and from school.  This time of year, it is always a good idea to review at home the bike safety rules before the children venture out for their first bike ride of the season.
