Milk Order - Drinkable Yogurt

October 21 - 1:10PM

Good morning folks!

I received this note below from one of our parents and thought it would be a nice thing to pass along to all of you. A number of families are enjoying our milk program, but it's a good reminder to all of you that we also do offer drinkable and spoonable yogurt. It's never too late to try the program!

Have a healthy day,


Dear Deb,

Thank you for offering the milk order program to your students.

For the month of October, we did the drinkable yogurt 2x/week for Connor even though he is a 5x/week elementary student. This has worked out great and he is really enjoying the different flavors each time.

He likes the Mango, Peach, Strawberry and wants to do those again. He does look forward to trying the other flavors as well (Banana, Honey Vanilla, Blackberry, and Blueberry/Pomegranate). I like knowing that he is getting extra calcium and nutrients in on these days.

Again, thank you for offering this.

Good morning!

We made the Advertiser News North yesterday! Our Elementary kids had a fantastic 2 day architecture class with Lauren Magee (August’s mom) recently and I thought the results were so special that I wrote an article and they printed it in yesterday’s paper!! If you do not receive the Advertiser News North, click on this link to get there and read it! Thanks again, Lauren, for your community service!!

Also, I don’t want you all to think I’m ignoring the pile of wood in the front of the parking lot – I have been waiting for my chronic back issues to improve enough to bring a splitter here and get the wood to my home, since I use only wood to heat my house. Unfortunately I don’t see an end in sight for my back pain, so I decided to offer it out to anyone wishing to do community service here at the school. If any of you have a log splitter and are willing to come here and split up that wood, I can then load it in my truck each day and take it home so we can get that front space cleared up. I just can’t lift or roll those huge chunks anymore (age and too much wood cutting over the years)!

Have a wonderful day!

Dear Friends and Families,

This is from Jamie Bruesehoff, our CPR instructor:

We still have space in CPR if anyone wants to sign up, they could just email me by Friday night ( and bring form and payment with them to the class. I've had a few people ask about if it was too late so just wanted to pass this along.

Thanks! Jamie

Lakota Wolf Field Trip

October 17 - 2:15PM

Dear Families,

Attached you will find the permission slip and information about the Lakota Wolf field trip next week. I also have paper forms going home in folders, but I realized that some families only come in the beginning of the week, so I am covering all bases here!

Hope to see you all at the trip – it is a memorable experience, to say the least. They do an excellent job there!

Yours, Deb

Good morning everyone!

Just a note about the fundraisers that you are being blasted with lately – please don’t ever feel obligated to be a part of any that you are not interested in. Unfortunately in the fall we get bombarded by many companies that we normally use and we try to get some out of the way before the snow flies. We always try to not only fundraise for ourselves but for others in need, which is why you will see the occasional fundraiser for another organization we believe in. This month it is the leukemia society, which I will also be teaching our elementary kids about in our “Disease of the Month” lesson this year.

Soon you will get your Artware fundraiser also, which involves your child’s art selection this year. We do this annually because it is a great source of gifts for family come holiday time and it is also a way you can immortalize your child’s art on various items. I will always treasure my grandkids’ art on the various mugs, boxes and plaques I had made through Artware, which is a great company that we have been dealing with for as long as I can remember. If you do any fundraiser – this one is the one to do! Also, Miss Syndie wanted me to mention that for the Sprouts, they have been studying Van Gogh, and the children painted their version of “Starry, Starry Night” by the artist. They are precious! Look for them in the next week or so to come home.

Thanks and have a great day! Deb
