Thank you to all of those who support our student athletes. Last night, the volleyball team was served a pre-game meal by parents who support the program and the cross country and football teams had pre-game meals at the Beef N Brew.
The FFA is kicking off their annual fundraiser today. They are selling a variety of products including fruit, beef, cheese, butter braids, pickled herring, custom bricks, and more. Contact an FFA member before November 10th to place your order!
Today Mrs. Paulsen's Comm class worked on writing instructions by building Lego creations. They will describe the order and steps it takes to build these.
High School Parents: Just a reminder that fall sports photos will be tomorrow, Wednesday, October 13 for football, dance, and cross country athletes. Volleyball players will have photos this Thursday, October 14 after school prior to the game. The photographer will be taking a full group photo as well as individual shots. The photographer has lots of neat options to choose from including: prints, buttons, magnets, posters, banners, memory mates, and yard signs. These are great keepsakes to have for years to come. Even if a student doesn’t plan on ordering any photos, we still need to take his/her photo so that it can be included on the composited/photo shopped images. Please remind students to bring their uniforms, filled out order form, and money (check or exact cash if possible) with them on that day. Thanks so much!
Today the anatomy students had the opportunity to visit with Liz Graham, who talked to the students about her experiences as a nursing student, traveling nurse, & now her career as a nurse in the cath lab at UNMC in Omaha while also taking classes to become a nurse practitioner.

Last night was a beautiful night to celebrate! From our football team's victory over East Sac County to terrific performances from our band and drill teams to our outstanding cheerleading squad to our youth football teams taking the field at halftime, it was an extra special night of celebration for all involved!
