All funds from the kindness grams will go to the local food shelf as part of the school’s current food drive.

  • Fourteen students are leaving Saturday, Feb. 15, to participate in the regional science fair.

  • There will be an art night for grades one through 12 on March 30.

  • Madeleine Lamb, Prairie Wind Middle School eighth-grader, has advanced to the multi-regionals state spelling bee.

  • The March School Board meeting has been moved to 5 p.m. Monday, March 16. This is due to a scheduling conflict and the meeting will be returning to its normal scheduling in April.
