The 3rd grade students had perfect weather today for planting the seeds they harvested last fall at the Prairie Wetlands Learning Center. They enjoyed helping restore the native prairie flowers & grasses that used to be plentiful on the prairie.

Last week grades 5, 8 and the High School Strength and Conditioning classes went to Andes Tower Hills for a day of skiing and snowboarding. This was a great opportunity for a lot of our students to try these sports for the first time. It was a great day and by the looks of it, a lot of fun! Thanks to Mr. Hendrickson, Mrs. Arneson, Mrs. Johnson, and Mr. Pearson for chaperoning this group of students.

Underwood School students are doing their part to make our world a better place by recycling any food waste from their breakfasts and lunches that are served at Underwood School. Our school is excited to partner with Otter Tail County Solid Waste in reducing/removing food waste from the trash. Food waste makes up approximately 20-30% of the waste stream. Students are learning how they can help the environment by sorting their waste, which will be composted and turned into planting soil. Way to go Rockets -- thank you for your efforts on making our world a better place.

Minnesota’s 6th Annual School Bus & School Van Driver Appreciation Day is on Wednesday, February 23, 2022!! We encourage our students, our staff and our parents/families to take the time say "thank you" to our very dedicated bus & van drivers, as we recognize their efforts of safely transporting our students to and from school each and every day. Our District would like to "shine a light" on how school bus drivers and school van drivers continue to go above and beyond their usual duties to support students, schools and communities. This day of recognition seeks to spark public appreciation for school bus drivers and school van drivers, along with increasing awareness for the unique challenges our industry is facing and prompt people to consider school bus driving or school van driving as a profession. A BIG Rocket "thank you" to all of our bus and van drivers -- Ron Gunderson, Ken Wiley, Mike Storley, Roy Kiser, Roger Simonson, Chuck Taylor, Brendan Ackerman, Ron Olson, Shari Gunderson, Donna Wold, Lesley Jacobson, Jessica Krog, Anna Kiser, Laura Haugen, MIke Freitag & Julie Breer.
