In the hybrid plan, students with last names A-J attend on Monday and Tuesday.  Students with last names K-Z attend on Thursday and Friday.  Wednesdays are virtual for all students.  (Monday-Tuesday preschoolers will be split between Monday and Tuesday; Wednesday-Thursday preschoolers will move to Thursday-Friday and be divided between those two days.  Preschool teachers will communicate details soon.)  We will provide regular bus transportation during the hybrid period on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

  • As a  Scout service project and to bring joy this upcoming holiday season, the Cub Scout Pack will be collecting bird seed, bird feeders, or poles to hang the bird feeders.  These items will be donated to the nursing home in town so that their residents can enjoy watching the birds. Due to COVID, residents have not been allowed to have visitors inside the nursing home, but they enjoy watching the birds outside their windows each day.  Feel free to contact Miranda Royer or Tara Gehlhausen with any questions or if you need someone to pick up any donations.  We will take donations to the nursing home in early December.  


  • Check backpacks for any envelopes being sent in for office staff.


  • Dixie is still collecting old markers to recycle as well as aluminum can tabs.
