Will winter ever end? Yes, it will and when it is 100° this summer, we’ll wonder what we thought was so bad about some snow and 30°.
I have had the opportunity a few times in the past month to visit with Senator Slama. If you get the chance, you should too!
Our speech team has had a successful season so far. They have won MUDECAS and Pioneer Conference and placed multiple other times. Districts is not far away! Track and golf seasons are also upon us, but practicing is hard with this weather!
I know everyone wants to know about snow days! As of the date I’m writing this, most students still have days left. The seniors are short, but we’ve figured out how to make their days up. Hopefully, Mother Nature cooperates and we don’t have to address this again!
We recently hosted a showing of “I Love Public Schools” video The Mind Inside. We invited the HTRS patrons, as well as those from Pawnee City and Falls City. If you didn’t get to watch it, you can go to their website to find it. It is a discussion about the impact mental health has on our students today.
We will be starting testing season very soon. Please make sure your student comes to school with a good night’s rest and a good breakfast. These assessments are important to our school’s state rank.
Our fitness center continues to be heavily utilized by staff and patrons. It’s great to be able to walk past at almost any time – day or night – and see people using it. I’ve been impressed with the pride that people have had in keeping the equipment clean and cared for.
We are starting to look at staff positions for next year. This includes classroom teachers and extra-curricular activities. Our staff does a great job at stepping up to fill empty positions, but there are always some that we utilize community members for. If you have an interest in any coaching or sponsoring position, please give me a call at 402-862-2151.
