Looking ahead...District Redesign

We now know that all 4th grade students will be educated in Lime Springs beginning next fall. Now the conversation turns to the logistics of making this happen. 

The next steps will be determining the number of sections and supports for each grade level. The intent will be that the teaching and learning at Lime Springs will follow the same model with the same supports available to all other grade levels.

Thank you to everyone for your time, input, and professional courtesy as all points were discussed.

Parent-Teacher Conferences
Thank you to all parents and students that attended parent-teacher conferences over the last two weeks. Our ability to work together toward the common goal of a successful child is very exciting.

Time for Kids

Students in 4th and 5th grades received information on Thursday to begin a short fundraiser for the magazine Time For Kids. Classrooms will receive paper and online versions of the magazine tailored to their grade level.

ALiCE Training
Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate are the components of ALiCE training. Members of the Howard-Winneshiek School Security Team participated in training provided by law enforcement officials at Elkader on Feb. 24. This training complements our security measures in place by providing staff with options in the event of an emergency. The next steps include staff training and basic supplies.
