March 2016 Principal/Activities Director Newsletter Report 7-12 Principal It is difficult to believe that last week ended the 3rd quarter and began the 4th quarter. We will be hosting our 3rd quarter awards assembly on Wednesday, March 16th during our access period (3:19-3:45). The school year will be over before we know it, so let’s finish strong! Our FBLA chapter had a big month hosting reach out and read, toy donation, and green week programs along with providing a Valentine’s Day Child Care fundraiser that were all well received! Thank you to Mrs. Hunt and her group for the outstanding work! The pediatric heart disease Zumba fundraiser ended up raising over $700. Awesome job to Mrs. Kratzer and everyone that attended and/or helped organize the event. Our staff participated in ALP Learning Walks in conjunction with ESU 10. This provided several of our staff members with a valuable peer review opportunity. On March 3rd our students and staff were able to listen to a presentation about decision making and the risks of drinking and driving. With prom season and graduation around the corner it was an important reminder for everyone. Litchfield Public Schools and Trotter’s Garden Center have received a lot of great publicity recently. Check out this article in the Kearney Hub http://tinyurl.com/j8matsp. Thank you to Gary Lawrence and Janice Reynolds for all the work they are doing with our Farm to School program!
