With the arrival of colder weather, we want to remind all parents that children need to be dressed warm for school. They need to wear a heavy coat, have something warm to wear on their head and also a warm pair of gloves or mittens. Boots and snow pants will also be needed for outside play when we have extremely cold weather, snow, and ice. Please make sure that all clothing is marked with the child's name.Children are also reminded to put shoes in their book bag to wear while at school. Make sure that your children are dressed for the varied weather conditions. The health of the children is very important. We thank you for your cooperation.

This week is School Bus Safety week! Today all the students got a chance to go out to a bus and talk to a driver. They learned bus rules, the importance of the stop arm/signs, and how to exit in the case of an emergency! If you see a bus driver, be sure to thank them!!

Thank you to the Algona High School cheerleaders for organizing the cheer clinic last week! The Kindergarten girls continued to practice throughout the week during recess and it was so fun to watch them perform Friday night before the Varsity football game.

Dear Parent/Guardian(s): This month, our school wide theme is skills for learning: listening, focusing attention, using self-talk to stay on-task, and being assertive when asking for help with a learning task. In our morning announcements, we’ll be reminding students of these skills, which help students be successful learners. Please tell your child’s teacher if you’d like more suggestions about supporting skills for learning at home. Yours in Education, Mr. Sudol

Happy Billy Day! National Custodian Appreciation Day is October 2nd. So today, we are celebrating Billy. Our school wouldn't run the way it does without him. We can't thank Billy enough for everything he does not only to keep things running, but also for the children!
