Yearbooks have arrived! Your student should come home with your ordered copy either today or Monday! We have extra softcover ($15) and hardcover ($20) books available. These are available on a first come, first serve basis and we will not hold books aside. Please send in a check or exact funds as we do not have change available.

Pocket Change For The Playground! Next week we will continue to raise funds for our playground installation with Pocket Change For The Playground. Our goal is to have our students donate pocket change to help with the costs of this project. Each classroom will have a collection bucket with totals being posted on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. The top class will earn a picnic lunch! Our school goal is to raise $1000, which we will celebrate with a pajama day!

Another reminder regarding drop off and pick ups: Per the District Handbook students should not be dropped off prior to 8:30 and students must be picked up at 3:45 (1:50 on Wednesdays).  This includes waiting on the playground unless under direct parent supervision.

ONLINE REGISTRATION and POWERSCHOOL PARENT PORTAL: Please refer to email sent to you by the district for registration information. You may call the Help Desk at 319-553-3004 or email

6th Grade Party Information:

Our 6th grade party is on Friday, May 19th at the UNI Wellness and Recreation Center from 6:00-9:00 PM. PALS generously sponsors this party for our 6th graders as a “graduation” party before our students head to Holmes Junior High. Parents can help with donations of bottled water, Gatorade, chips, fruit or other snack items. If you would prefer to make a cash donation to go towards these items, that would be greatly appreciated as well!  We will also need parents to help chaperone. Please find the attached link to sign up for donations and volunteer positions.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at  In addition, here is the permission slip and T-shirt order form if you are interested. These are due back to school by Friday, May 5th.
