March 2019 Newsletter


For some awful reason, this winter weather is sticking around. Hopefully, by mid-march, we will no longer see snow covered grounds. In the meantime, we are gearing up for spring. 

Spring means that track and golf are also right around the corner. With sports brings some much needed outdoor time. Here are some great things going on within our district to hold us over until then.

On February 28th, seniors in Introduction to Literature went on a field trip to the African American History Museum of Iowa.  During this field trip, students learned more about the history of African Americans in our state specifically focusing on the Reconstruction time period.  Students were reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in class and making connections to how the time period of Reconstruction affected African Americans and still affects all of us today.
