COMMUNITY

 

Feeding Tomorrow’s Future Today

 

Wells County 4-H Association will once again assist in filling that weekend food gap by sending food packs home with students in the local schools. The food will be in a grocery cloth bag or a backpack that will include nutritious food and snacks for the family for the two days of the weekend. These food packs will be distributed at the end of the school day each Friday afternoon or the last day of the school week in the case of holidays. The program will continue each week until the end of the school year in May. Families may sign up at any period of time throughout the school year by letting Mr Rickerd or Mrs. Roush know. The program is free.

If your family is interested in participating, please contact the school office. We will do our best to ensure that this program is confidential. Students will not be identified as participating. They will be allowed to pick-up their pack each Friday a few minutes before leaving school or through other arrangements.

Thank you to all of the local Churches, businesses and organizations that support this effort and also thanks to the 4-H volunteers who will be taking on this project (pack the food bags, etc) as they work to make a positive difference in our community while addressing the hunger needs of families.

eLearning Policy Update

Secondary (grades 7-12) eLearning policy update

 Below are the changes to the eLearning policy that the high school teachers have asked to have changed and were approved by the board at the December 21, 2021 school board meeting. 

    Students will receive 1 additional day after the e-learning day to complete the assignment.  (Currently have 2 days after)
    Teachers may increase time from 20-30 minutes of work/instruction per day.  (Currently is 20-minute limit)
    Teachers would like to be able to choose whether it is review material or new material being taught on e-learning day.  In other words, make work meaningful.  (Currently review work only

Right now we pretty much have a one size fits all for the elementary and secondary level and this would allow greater flexibility at the secondary level when needed.  It also allows the elementary to stay with the current timelines if they wish to do so in order to meet the needs of their students and staff.
