Congratulations to our students who participated in the BOCH Festival at UNO on January 28th.
Senior Kloey Appel completed a 6-foot tall painting that she began working on during the first semester. This is the first of many paintings that will adorn the Pioneer Path hallway. The plan is for students to showcase their creativity and artistic talents by creating paintings that are based on school and community activities. Next year, Kloey plans to attend Washburn University in Topeka Kansas to study psychology.

Each Friday, the students in Kids Club complete a seasonally appropriate art project. Not only do these art projects allow the students to use their creativity and imagination, but the projects also help the students work on improving their listening skills and following directions. We have a wide variety of age levels at Kids Club and each student is always up to the challenge of trying something new and even though we are all doing the same project, each student is unique and their finished product is too. They are proud of their artwork and love to show it off!
“There is no right or wrong when it comes to making art. Making sure that you have fun is the most important part. Splash a little paint, draw a little line. Just make sure that you have fun each and every time!” –Mickey Mouse

Thank you to all who donated during our MCC blood drive! We had 59 people come to donate and collected 49 pints of blood. Donors potentially saved 147 lives! We want to give a big shout out Mrs. Lloyd and all the Medical Careers Club students who organized the drive. To find out how to continue to give, follow the link below.
Life’s a gift. Give more of it. Donate Blood
Part of the troop that Mr. Wagner is part of, 185th Air Refueling Wing Civil Engineering, is overseas this holiday season. To brighten up their season, the Elementary Student Council sent them care packages. The Elementary Students made cards and the Student Council filled the packages with a variety of snacks. To help fund this project, the student council donated $100 from their fundraiser, the Knights of Columbus donated $300, and donations were received from a few other families in the district. They added a group picture of the Student Council members with a note reading, “Packed with love and appreciation.” Fourth Grade student council members said, “it was fun and special that they were able to help those who couldn’t come home for Christmas.”
