"A Special Day at the Rink"
About 75 disabled kids from southeast Nebraska came for a day of fun at the rink. They skated, scootered, and ran around the rink. Even the blind kids skated! Heather McKinney, teacher at Nebraska City, and our cousin, organized the event for the second year. Kids come from Auburn, Nebraska City, Humboldt, and Syracuse to have some fun. Kids from Elmwood Murdock Junior and Senior High school volunteered to help out. Noah Tays, Justin Furgerson, Laura Fortney, Jessie Spaulding, Stacy Ronhovde, Paige Tuttle, Bridget Sukup, Joe Anderson, Garyn Folden, and I all had a great time with the kids.Paige even got asked out on a date!
Romeo got groomed!
My mutt was getting pretty scroungy so mom took him to Bath and Splash in Ashland along wtih our other dog to have a spa day. He was feeling pretty handsome when it was over. And he smelled a whole lot better, too.

CHANGES IN SCHOOL CALENDAR
Just a reminder that we have made the following changes in the school calendar so that we may make up snow days and prepare for the possibility of using more snow days during the rest of the school year.
Beginning January 25, 2010 the elementary school will begin 5 minutes earlier (8:15 a.m.) and extend 10 minutes longer (3:30 p.m.).
We will not be having early dismissal on January 18, February 15, and April 14, 2010. These will be full school days.
We will not be taking the Spring Break days on March 5, and March 12, 2010. We will have school on these days.
STUDENT CONDUCT AT BASKETBALL GAMES
Elementary students should come to games with a parent or other responsible adult and not just be dropped off at the school. Children should be under the supervision of a parent or other responsible adult during the basketball games. Students and children should not be running and playing in the halls during the games. Thank you for your cooperation.
