Note from Principal Bruder - Dear Parents,  Thank you for the wonderful attendance at Parent-Teacher Conferences. The teachers and I thoroughly appreciate everything you do. I did not get to see everyone of you personally, but the many conversations I was able to have with you were enjoyable. We are proud of our students and our school district,and we applaud you for your genuine support. We are into our last third wave of our school year. Mother Nature did tack on one more school day, and that means the last day for students will now be June 1. As always, you are very welcome to visit school and maybe even have lunch with us.  The students do enjoy when we have visitors.  Please contact us to let us know you will be visiting or if there is anything you need this last trimester let us know.  Thank you.

March Reading Connection - please see the attachment for this month's tips for reading success.  

Taft STEM Studio Materials Request - Taft 1st graders are embarking on sewing activity.  We are in need of scrap material of any type.  We are looking for material of at least 4" by 4" or larger.  If you have anything at home you could donate please send it to school with your child and we will get the material into the right hands. Thank you!

Meals from the Heartland - The Humboldt Hy-Vee and Fareway are both taking part in a "Round-up" for Meals From The Heartland.  If you ask your clerk when you check out to round up your price to the next dollar, the proceeds will go to Meals From The Heartland.  The Humboldt Middle School students take part in a packaging meals for this great organization and your donation would in part help support their day of packaging.  Please think about rounding up next time you are shopping!  Thank you!
