Trent Loos - Agriculture Speaker

On WednesdayJanuary 11th Trent Loos will be at CHS to speak to students. Trent travels the country motivating and educating his audience on issues related to animal agriculture and food production. His audiences vary in age, background, mission and profession, but they all come away enthused about bridging the gap between food producers and consumers. When addressing youth groups, Trent emphasizes the importance and pride associated with being involved in U.S. food production in the future.
Loos records, produces and sends his radio programs from wherever his travels take him using his laptop computer and the internet. He presently has a radio listening audience of 4 million and can be heard on more than 100 stations across the country. 
Loos also can frequently be found addressing agricultural and non-agricultural groups alike. Among his favorite audiences are our nation's youth where he takes the opportunity to talk with them about the importance of food as a matter of national security and the value of their involvement in today's food production system.

Thank you to Iowa State Extension of Howard County for making this opportunity possible.

December Attendance Update

We believe in positive school attendance, knowing that attending school has a huge impact on a student's academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Parents/Caregivers/Guardians play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and on the job. Research proves that if a student is not in school (excused or unexcused), these absences have a major impact on their educational progress. We do understand that "life" happens and it is a necessity to miss school, work, etc...  Family vacations, appointments, and other obligations are a necessity. Please continue to call our office and inform us of those absences and be here all other days. When a student misses a day, they really do miss a lot.  

We appreciate your support encouraging regular attendance at school.  

Our average daily attendance rate is consistent when compared to this time last year but was up slightly in December.  

We do, however, have three more students enrolled in grades 7-12 than we did a year ago at this time. 583 students in the seat, compared to 580 this time last year.
