Our preschoolers enjoyed fall to the fullest with a leaf hunt, trip to country blossom farms, pizza party, science experiment and a costume party!
Thank you to our fantastic volunteers and to Thrivent Financial for making it possible for the 3rd graders to sew fleece hats again this year! The students each have a great new hat to wear and were able to donate 40 hats to local charities.
What a beautiful day to visit Otter Berry Farm. The kindergarten classes got to explore the farm, have some adventure time in the corn maze, feed and pet the animals, play and go on a wagon ride. What an adventure we had....we cannot wait to decorate our pumpkins.
The kindergarten classes visited with our local firefighters last Friday to learn about fire safety. We got to take a look at all their fire trucks, equipment and tools they use. We even got a special ride back to school in the fire trucks with lights and sirens. Thank you Underwood Firefighters for all you do for us!
Mr. John Hamann has been recommended to the school board as our interim principal for the remainder of this school year. John previously served Underwood as our K-12 principal for 23 years. Mr. Hamann brings his leadership and experience back into our district and we look forward to having him for the next 8 months. Underwood School District will post for our next principal in the spring.
The first few weeks of preschool have been a success!
