SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

Healthy Living Day at the Lake
  We are planning a day at our local state park, Viking Lake. All students in our school will be grouped in multi-aged “family” groups.  We are working with the Department of Natural Resources, Viking Lake State Park personnel, Cold Springs State Park personnel, an area DNR forester, and the Environmental Protection Division to provide educational and healthy activities for the students.
Students will be walking to activities that will be scattered around Viking Lake State Park. They will also have the opportunity to spend 40 minutes of continuous physical activity by participating in geocaching. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. This will be done along the trails around Viking Lake State Park.
Other activities for the day include education from the nurse about outdoor skin care and protection and also information about mammals, fish, and land and water conservation. During lunchtime there will be opportunities for students to play beach volleyball and other outdoor games.
Senior Trip
  The Senior Trip to Kansas City will be April 22nd-24th.  We will depart from the school around 8:30 AM on Tuesday, April 22nd and plan to return around 2:00 PM on Thursday, April 24th.

 PRINCIPAL

  The official last day of school will be Friday, May 30th. We will have an early dismissal that day.
We also need a sub for any kitchen position. If you are interested please contact Tammy Boyer or Christie Elwood at the school.
The Drivers Ed students received information on Wednesday from Mrs. Almquist as well as the June schedule.  Please check with your student to get that information.

Stanton Community School is having “Healthy Living Day at the Lake” on April 30th.  For the past three years we have participated in “Recess for Life”, a school day version of Relay for Life. We will continue to be involved in this. However, this year, we will have it under the umbrella of “Healthy Living Day at the Lake”. The fundraiser for Recess for Life involves selling sand bags with balloons that will be set out around the lake activities on April 30th. The balloons will have messages attached so students and staff can read them as they walk. Suggested donation for the balloons is $1.00 each. Please join in the fight against cancer and purchase a balloon and write a message in honor of a person who has fought or is fighting the battle against cancer.
