Sherri Edmundson, Superintendent
I would like to think that spring is here, but then I remind myself it’s only February with 50° swings in temperature within just a few days! Please make sure your children are coming to school prepared for the weather. We feel it’s important for students to get outside as much as possible, so please make sure they are prepared for recess, and especially if they walk to school or to and from the bus stops. We are at that time of year where we never know when inclement weather will hit. Please make sure you watch the TV, listen to the radio, check us out on Facebook, and sign up for the announcements from the school so that you know when we release early, start late, or do not have school.
We have such awesome things going on at HTRS besides academics and activities. We host the Blood Mobile and events like the Shoot for the Cure in memory of Scot Knudson and junior cheer camp to name only a few. Congratulations to speech, basketball teams, and wrestling on their successes so far this season. Did you know that the MUDECAS basketball tournament is the longest standing tournament west of the Mississippi? The junior high girls’ basketball team has also started their season. Mrs. Stalder is working with the robotics teams and academic decathlon is competing as well. We have a fantastic group of students that participate very hard in the extra-curricular activities on top of their full academic schedules. We are very proud of them for their accomplishments. All of these things together show what a great community we have and what is really important. Academics and activities are important, but it is also important that we raise students to be productive and caring citizens in society. There is so much to be learned in school besides what happens in the classroom, court, or field. We truly do have a great group of students and staff at HTRS!
Substitute bus drivers, substitute teachers, and substitute paras continue to be a challenge to find and employ. If you are interested, please contact the school at 402-862-2151.
