Spring Carnival

Thanks very much for all the people that made the Spring Carnival a success!  The school would like to thank the parents, staff, students and other people that organized and worked at the event. They would also like to thank the individuals and businesses that donated items to our silent auction and raffle.  Again, thank you to all the people that made the Spring Carnival a huge success.


The silent auction had a lot of cool baskets up for grabs.


Austin Drueke won the big prize!


These three did the cake walk until they won.

There were lots of carnival games for the kids to play.

The inflatables are always a big hit.

Mark and Keri Hogue stopped for a little food in the cafeteria before hitting the games.

Tracy Spaulding watches as Vanessa tries her luck.

The senior parenting class try out being pregnant by putting on pregnant bellies.  This gives them an idea of what it is really like but they only wear them for a few minutes so it isn't a very realistic exercise.  They also get to bring home a baby that records the care they receive.  The student's grade is based on the results recorded by the baby.  If you put it in the trunk when it cries then you will probably fail the class.













Get Lost in the Weeping Water Valley!

The Scenic Weeping Water Valley spreads from Elmwood to Murray, from Highway 1 to Highway 34. Communities within this valley are Union, Murray, Manley, Nehawka, Avoca, Eagle, Alvo, Wabash, Weeping Water, Elmwood, and Murdock. This scenic area, offering so many unique commercial, historical and cultural destinations, has been literally undiscovered by the surrounding metropolitan areas.

The Scenic Weeping Water Valley Association (SWVA) is made up of 15 area businesses seeking to increase public knowledge of the Valley and its treasures.  To help kick-off the summer vacation season, the SWVA is holding a cooperative event during the weekend of April 24 & 25.  Special discounts will be available to those who specifically mention the "Get Lost" promotion; thus encouraging residents and tourists alike to "Get Lost in the Valley" and rediscover its treasures.

The list of promotions is so extensive that the SWVA encourages people to visit their website, http://www.visitthevalley.org/ to view everything being offered during the last full weekend in April.  Those without access to the web may call SWVA President, Barb Slattery of Slattery Vintage Estates in Nehawka with any questions.

Knightly News from the Elementary School:


Informational brochures have been sent home regarding Summer School Enrichment for our elementary students.  Please return the registration forms if you are interested in enrolling your child in the summer School Enrichment Program. We are planning to offer Enrichment classes for our students on Mondays through Thursdays from June 14 through July 1. Please contact the school if you have any questions or need another informational brochure. We have extended the registration dead line until May 2, 2010.


We have had some interest in the Summer Knights Childcare program.  However, our numbers are still low and we need more information from the parents that are interested in the program before we can offer the program.  We have been directed by the Board of Education to have this childcare program self-supporting and not use any school funds to operate.  We have sent information home this week regarding the price of the childcare and other pertinent information regarding the program.  We sent this information home to all of the parents that returned our childcare surveys and indicated that they may be interested in the program.  We are asking parents to register their children and make a commitment to attend our childcare so that we can make a decision regarding the viability of the Summer Knights Childcare Program.  Please contact the school if you have any questions or are interested in the program.  We would like to make a decision by April 30th on offering the childcare program for the summer.


Thanks to the students, Mrs. Colbert, and Mr. Hanson for a great Spring Concert!


The EM Volleyball Camp is scheduled for Wed.-Fri. June 2nd-4th.  Forms are due by May 15th.  Please contact Mary in the school office if you need a new form.
