Hi all!! A lot of you of you may know me!! I manage all the booking & parties with TNT’s Inflatables! Working with kids is honestly a passion of mine & I wouldn’t trade it for the world! I have been tossing this idea around for a while now as I have seen the need for occupying & giving the school aged kids something to do, while the parents are working after school! Our shop is on the homeward stretch of being fully operational! I am excited to announce that I am going to offer kids to come & hang out with me Monday through Thursday! I will be having basically time after school, that kids can do homework & play/craft. We will have reading/homework time for the first 15-20 minutes then have a snack/drink and they can then play/jump and/or craft!! I will have different activities for them each day!! SOMEONE will need to pick them up by 6pm! -if this is something you’re wanting your kid to participate in, please message me as soon as possible to get all the details & your spot reserved! I will get a waiver sent over! -Tawni Griebel
Reminder- TOMORROW December 4th is Ethan’s Christmas on Main! If you heard it on the radio they had the wrong date. Still tomorrow!

Sophomores & Juniors went to Career Day last week.
Congratulations to the newest members of the National Honor Society in the junior class.
Today Firefighters from Mitchell and Ethan came to school for Fire Safety! Firefighters reviewed smoke alarms, talked about getting out when there is a fire and not going back for anything! Talked about having a safe place meeting to go when house is on fire. They talked about getting to a window if there is one and shouting "HELP" so the firefighters know where they are. Also to get low to the ground so they don't take in all the smoke and showed them much more! The kids got to see Firefighter in a suit, the trucks and some cool tools they might need in a fire! Thanks to Mitchell & Ethan Fire Department for this presentation today!

Happy Substitute Educator's Day! These professional educators provide a critical link in the education of public schoolchildren by serving as a bridge to provide continued quality education to children in the temporary absence of regular classroom educators. At Ethan, we wish to give a special thank you to Mr. Jones, Mrs. Gerlach, Mrs. Haag, Mr. Bohmont, Ms. Hertel, Mr. Anderson, and many others that have served in our school.
With the start of the winter season upon us, I wanted to share with everyone how we will proceed with late starts this school year. If the weather conditions force us to start the school day at a later time, ALL late starts will start at 10:00 AM. If your student rides the bus to school, you will need to adjust their pickup time by one hour and forty-five minutes. Again, all late starts will be a 10:00 AM start time this winter season. Mr. Hawkins
