Student Council has sponsored hat days in honor of a local family (and former and future Bob Callies Elementary students) in Heart Month. Baby Ellie Behles and her mom and dad came in today and we gave them what we have collected so far: over $680 to go toward medical bills and expenses they have had! One more week to help them during heart month! Thank you all for your generosity!

So proud of our students who competed in the Acalympics in Plaza today. After the first round, our students were in a 4 way tie for first. The top 3 teams move onto the lightening round. In the lightening round, we finished in second place, lost by 1 point. Great job, you represented our school so well!!

We'd like to extend a special thank you to Cole Glatt, owner of Zack Shack Fish Houses, for his generosity. He donated half the cost of the frame for us to build our portable dog house. The second picture shows what we intend to build. Also, trap sign up will be out in the very near future with the season beginning March 31.

Thankful Thursday: Did you know that it is National School Counseling Week and we have two of the best school counselors on earth? We are grateful for all they do in both of our schools! From testing, to classroom lessons, to career planning, to behavior strategies, to filling in for any area as needed, plus just being supportive listeners and problem solvers--our schools wouldn't be the same without Mrs. Hanson and Mrs. Ruud! Thank you for all you do!

All, Please allow for additional travel time this morning as highways and gravel roads are slick knowing it's still winter in ND. The visibility is great. State plows have been out, but as of 5:45 when I returned to town county plows have not been out. Dr. K.

Today students at Bob Callies Elementary participated in Global School Play Day. This day is observed annually every first Wednesday in February. This holiday promotes the importance of unstructured, regular play for children. As Fred Rogers said, "Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood." We know our students enjoyed their work today and encourage everyone to find time for unstructured play every day!

At 1:11 today, the High School office received a phone call from an unknown caller stating they were going to shoot up the school. Students were instructed to go shelter in place in both buildings and law enforcement was contacted. Local PD and the Sheriff's Department responded. The case is currently under investigation but appears to be no threat currently as other schools have also received this threat in the state.
