Week of November 26

Congratulations to our Scrip-a-thon Winners: 

  • Aspen & Paisley (1st place)
  • Andrew E. (2nd place)
  • Landan & Kesley (3rd place)


Our Scrip-a-thon sales this year were $117,155, breaking last year’s record of $116,740.  The students enjoyed ice cream treats as a thank you for all of their hard work with the Scrip-a-thon.  Thank you to everyone for supporting our Scrip fundraising program!


The deadline to place orders for Scrip gift cards to receive them before Christmas break is Monday, December 10th.   Please turn in any orders on or before that date.  Cash-n-carry cards will still be available as usual through December 21st, our last day before Christmas break.


As we begin winter weather season, please remember to watch for notifications about late starts, early releases, or closures.  (Whatever Kingsland does related to weather closings, we do as well, since we use the same bus service.)   Eagle Care (before school child care) will be open if school is 2 hours late.  If school ends up being cancelled after the delay, then Eagle Care will close at 10:00 a.m.  If school is cancelled, there is no Eagle Care.


All school families are asked to contribute baked goods or crafts to the PTL Craft & Bake Sale following the school Christmas program on Friday, December 14th.  Please have items priced in dollar increments (no cents) and deliver to the church basement on Thursday, December 13th, or by 9 a.m. on Friday, December 14th.  Please direct any questions to Brenda Nash-Eickhoff, PTL Craft and Bake Sale Organizer, 507-251-5618, brendajne@gmail.com.  Thank you for your support!
