For the last Monday of the school year, the students at Fort Calhoun Junior Senior High were treated to a special day of fun. They started the day off with inspirational speaker Ron Gustafson. Next, they were able to choose from several sessions based off their interests. Sessions included topics like pie or smoothie making, photography, card games, and tie dye. They ended the day with more fun playing games in the Gym.

The students in Ali Romans’ 5th-grade class and Carly McElhose’s 1st-grade class were top readers in our March Madness Spring reading incentive program so they got a huge treat on Friday, April 26th. First, they were treated to a pizza party and then they got to shoot hoops with Creighton Basketball players, Connor Cashaw, Damien Jefferson and Jett Canfield. What an awesome reward. It was evident from smiles all around that the time spent made a lasting impression on both the future Pioneers and the current Bluejays. Great job readers!
