Dear Parents & Guardians,
The first couple of days flew by! The weather helped us be outside a lot. On the first day of school, our Chief Superintendent Christopher Usih visited our school, chatting with parents, staff and students. He enjoyed the relaxed and happily excited atmosphere that he experienced. He really enjoyed the vases with flowers in some of our classrooms. He also really liked Ms. Lemke’s Trait of the Month board. In [...]

Clarification on Return to School

Dear Parents & Guardians,
On Tuesday, September 1, an exciting new 2020-21 school year begins. Yes, we all start together, as we are a small school.

Education Can Change Your Life

​As many of you know, I grew up in a hamlet, farming. How small was that hamlet? It had one road that led through it, maybe 40 people. While I was little, it was great fun to run wild: through the forest, the fields, the grass, swim in the lake, play in the river. And, how could I forget, chores! As I got older though, I realized that I really, really wanted a different lifestyle. Education was one way to change my life. Moreover, my father was born one year before WW2 broke out. He started school just before the war ended and many, many refugees lived in the area. The story I grew up with was: One refugee had been a city magistrate in Prussia prior to the war. A very educated man. Very poor in the 1940s. But: when life went back to normal after the war, within 5 years, he was back in city administration. His education gave him a new start in a new part of the country. So when Oprah Winfrey says:" Education is the key to unlocking the world, a passport to freedom." I agree with her. If you want to change your life, then you need to learn as much as you can.
