FC Dance Team at NDTC

Our Dance team earned a bid to Nationals at camp this past summer. This allowed them to attend the National Dance Team Competition (NDTC) in Orlando, Florida Feb. 2nd-4th. They entered into the Varsity Intermediate category for their Pom and Hip Hop dances.
For Pom, there were so many teams that they had to have prelims, semi-finals, and finals. They take half of the amount of teams to move on from each category. Our team competed in prelims Saturday night and advanced to the semi-finals Sunday morning. Unfortunately, they did not advance to finals but they did place 13th in the nation for their Pom dance. 
With it being their first year attending the NDTC, we are very impressed with the outcome. Great job Ladies!

Triennial Assessment Results

Fort Calhoun Community Schools Community members:

Our District takes pride in supporting the needs of the whole child, to ensure that all children are safe, supported, engaged, and challenged each day they come to our buildings. 

Research indicates that initiatives focused on improving aspects of students’ well-being in schools—such as addressing childhood obesity, preventing bullying, supporting students’ mental health, and restricting schools’ use of exclusionary discipline—have been found to be successful in improving student success, and academic excellence. We have assessed our wellness policy as part of the USDA requirements. Below are the results of our assessment.
