Field Trip
Tuesday, 3rd grade students attended Tomas and the Library Lady at Gallagher-Bluedorn Auditorium in Cedar Falls.

Luther College 
It was a privilege to participate in the mock interviews with aspiring educators on Thursday. This was a time for administrators to ask questions of upcoming graduates and to provide advice for those entering the profession. Likewise, it was a great opportunity for the students to ask questions of administrators in regard to their preparedness and what to expect during an interview and beginning a teacher career.
