Sleep and nutrition can have a huge impact on your child’s ability to focus and retain information. One of the most helpful things parents and adults can do is focus on supporting these basic needs. Well-balanced meals and a regular and consistent sleep schedule can really help your child succeed in the classroom everyday but especially during the times of state testing. On test days, it is vitally important to make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and begins the day full of energy. Drinking water in the morning is a great way to start the day and can remind students to bring a water bottle to school to stay hydrated and alert throughout the testing sessions.

Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASPs) are coming up soon. Some students can become anxious in the weeks or days before testing but a little encouragement from adults around them can go a long way in helping students walk into testing days feeling confident. Confidence can have a huge effect on how students perform. Ask your child what they are doing in class and how confident they feel about their work. Offer praise to your child when they feel confident and encourage them to continue to be excited about their success with new concepts or skills. Similarly, if your child is telling you they are struggling with a concept, topic, or skills, point out the progress they are making and positively encourage them to continue working—never give up on your learning!

A note from Mr. Cater- With the 2 Hour Late Start on Thursday, March 23rd, our students are not on schedule to attend school the required 1080 hours. However, we only need to make a small adjustment to allow us to reach that number. On Thursday, April 6th, students will be dismissed at our normal dismissal times rather than one hour early as we posted on our original calendar. Thanks you for your continued support and flexibility! Joe Carter -- Superintendent

This weekend is the AHS spring play! You can read more about it below by student writer, Olivia Hanig. Tickets are $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for students. By Olivia Hanig: Every year Algona High School puts on a musical in the fall and a play in the spring. Last semester the theater department performed the musical "Newsies," which was held in October. The musical was based on a rebellious newsboy who dreams of being an artist away from the big city. This semester’s spring play is called "The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong" by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields. "The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong" is about the rowdiness of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society. It specifically focuses on their attempts to perform a 1920s murder mystery. The first performance of this play was in 2012 in London. It was then moved to Trafalgar Studios in 2013. This play will be performed on April 1st at 7:00pm and the 2nd at 2pm in the Ed and Betty Wilcox Performing Arts Center. The characters in this play are Riker Brindley, Hannah Severson, Dane Nygaard, Loralei Brady, Jacob Barglof, Aidan Morris, Jacob Schutter, and Seth Walker. Jacob Barglof stated, “The spring play is gonna have some excellent comedy.” Make sure to check out the play if you want a good laugh!
