November & December:

Quarter 1 of the 2016-2017 school year has flown by.  We’ve reached the end of October…still no snow so we are doing well!


November and December are months full of activities and events.  Be sure to check the calendar below.


Parent/teacher conferences are set for Thursday, Nov. 10 from 1:00 – 4:00 and from 5:00 – 7:00.  Students are dismissed at noon.  This year we are adding an element of fun to the conferences.  We are hosting a “conference run”—for every teacher that a parent sees during conferences, that parent will receive a raffle ticket for prizes donated by our local businesses and organizations.  So if your student is in elementary and you visit his/her classroom teacher, art teacher, music teacher and PE teacher, you would receive four tickets to put into the raffle.  For taking time to fill out the school perception survey, you will receive an additional three tickets!  The goal is to increase family participation and make sure parents have the chance to talk to all of the staff.  Please come out for the conferences—and be sure to be ready to write your name and phone number on a lot of raffle tickets!


We are using a new school perception survey this year.  Please take time to fill one out and share your thoughts with us. 


The other big event in November is the Veterans’ Day program on Friday, Nov. 11 at 2:00 p.m.  We look forward to the opportunity to honor our Veterans and we invite everyone to join us for the program.


Girls and boys basketball starts up in November as well as junior high boys basketball—once those seasons start, can spring be far away?


Congratulations to our fall sports student-athletes:  Cardinal volleyball and junior high girls basketball and Gogebic Miners football and cross country.


And please join us in welcoming the newest member to our teaching staff:  Mr. Isaac Boehnlein, our new K-12 music instructor.

When confronted with a Goliath-size problem, which way do you respond? “He’s too big to hit” or like David, “He’s too big to miss”?
