Sherri Edmundson, Superintendent
Everyone is busy finishing the school year. It is hard to find available dates for school activities that do not conflict with each other, or with church activities. We are excited that we anticipate being able to have prom, graduation, music programs, awards night, and other spring activities this year! Please believe we are doing our best to accommodate everyone’s requests and that we do understand how important it is to have support at each and every one of our activities!
It has been a great year in spite of COVID that has allowed us to add options for student courses and match teachers to their academic strengths while utilizing some online options. We have seen growth in student achievement and teacher professional development in these areas. It’s exciting to see the endless possibilities virtual learning adds!
Congratulations to the power lifters in their accomplishments in their recent meet. Dylan Schulenberg earned recognition for the 1,000 pound club. Congratulations to Austin Herr and Shannon Jones for qualifying for state speech. Also congratulations to Aiden Worthey and Isaac Bittner for qualifying for state wrestling! So many positives to celebrate!
To date we have accepted the resignation of Ben Billesbach in the 5/6 grades and the retirement of music teacher, Sarah Volker.
HTRS is scheduled for their five-year accreditation visit this spring. Our staff has worked hard to prepare data to validate the accomplishments of our students.
High school graduation has been set for May 8th and awards are set for April 26th. Check out the calendar for the upcoming music programs also! Another school year is soon to come to an end!
