Note from Mr. Bruder - On November 11 we will be implementing an additional section of Kindergarten. After Kindergarten Roundup in the spring of 2019, we were anticipating 98 students, and made the decision to have 5 sections of Kindergarten. After school registration was completed in August, we had 109 Kindergarten students registered which was a class average of 22. Our Kindergarten enrollment has increased another 10 students and this gives us class sizes of 23 to 24. With our additional section added, our average class size will be 19 students. Mrs. Reigelsberger has been named the classroom teacher for our 6th section of Kindergarten. She is currently teaching in our elementary schools and has successfully taught in our district for 18 school years. We are excited to have her as the classroom teacher.

Box Tops for Education Program Change - We have collected Box Tops for several years at our elementary schools. We earn 10 cents for every Box Top we receive. We will still continue to collect the clipped Box Tops until it is fazed out. However, there is a Box Top app that you scan your receipt to get our school the credit for the Box Tops on that particular shopping trip. No more clipping! Learn more about these changes at BTFE.com. Thank you for your support!
