Dear Parents/Guardians,

Greetings!  It is so hard to believe that we have only 9 more school days until Christmas break!  We will be having school on MONDAY, December 10th and our last day for the semester will be December 14th.  

The 6th grade & Jr High band and choir concert will be Dec 6th at 6:00 pm and the K-3 grade Christmas Program will be December 11th at 6:00 pm.  Please plan on attending, Mr. Derrickson and Mrs. Taylor always do a great job with our students. 

We are tracking school attendance differently this year.  Some of you may have received letters regarding your students absences.  Please note that when you child is late to school or picked up early, they are counted absent for that time.  We are mandated to report absences that are beyond 10 days a semester.

Due to some of our buses being at or near max capacity, we are asking to please not let your child bring home more than 2 friends on the bus with them.  If your child is having several friends over, please make other transportation arrangements.  Thank you for your help with this.

Our lost and found box is over flowing with jackets, coats, etc.  If your child is missing items, please feel free to come to the school and go through it. 

Thank you to all who participated in the Triway Thanksgiving Basket Challenge.  We had over 20 food baskets donated to help East Newton United families!  This was AMAZING!!!

PTO NEWS: PTO will not be having a meeting in December.  Next meeting will be January 9, 2019 at 4:00 pm in the cafeteria.  The second t- shirt order items should be in around December 10th.

Our Jr high basketball girls have a few more games for their season.  Dec. 3rd @ Granby, Dec. 4th @ Cassville and the Big 8 Tournament will be Dec. 8th-14th.
