Our K-2 Mini Dribblers are excited to perform for fans at an upcoming boys’ varsity basketball game. On February 5th, they will be performing at half time of the boys’ game against Mississinawa Valley. It should be exciting for parents to come out and enjoy.
Miami County Nutrition Program
The Miami County Public Health Department visited our second grade this week in conjunction with their school nutrition program. The goal is to come together, as a community, to make changes that support healthy living and will help ensure bright futures for our children. They have teamed up with the Miami County YMCA to move towards this goal by going into area elementary schools to increase nutrition education, give suggestions for healthy food choices and stress the importance of physical activity.

Before last night’s varsity basketball game, some of our fifth grade students had an opportunity to sing the National Anthem. They did an amazing job as they represented our school with integrity.
