Parents and Students, we like all of you are excited for our upcoming basketball seasons! It is amazing to see the enthusiasm our kids have by wanting to get into the gym to prepare. However, please remember that if you have signed an agreement with the school to have a gym key, students cannot be in the gym unsupervised. An adult MUST BE PRESENT with them when they are in the gym.
This week- November 14-18, 2022- has been designated as American Education Week. At Ethan, we want to celebrate along with all of America the special public school community that exists here. American Education Week was first celebrated in 1921. This came two years after Americans were distressed that 25% of WW I draftees were unable to read. Because of this, illiteracy sponsors of American Education Week wanted to raise public support for education. Therefore, it is a week to inform the public of the school’s accomplishments and needs as well as creating cooperation and support of the public in meeting those needs. This week we will be honoring the whole team of people who work in our school to help create a special school community.
Happy Veterans Day !! Thank you to all Veterans for your service! Here is a few pictures from our special program yesterday!!
Reminder: The 5th and 6th grade basketball tourneys on Saturday are @Forestburg with the girls starting in the AM and the Boys starting around noon.
Parents: On November 15, Family Day for American Education Week, we are looking for parents to come in to talk about how education played a role in their career. If you are interested in talking to a class, please contact Mrs. Henrickson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at (605) 227-4211.

There will be a MANDATORY meeting for any girl grades 7-12 interested in JV or Varsity Girls Basketball on Monday, November 7th at 6:00 PM in the new gym. There will also be a MANDATORY parents meeting at 6:30 in the lunchroom right after the players meeting for the parents of any girl grades 7-12 who wants to play JV or Varsity or just practice with the JV and Varsity teams. If your daughter only wants to play 7th and 8th grade basketball, you do NOT need to attend. It would be great if both parents (of those who plan to play or practice with the JV or Varsity) would attend if possible. Coach Young.
