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.

Students in Mr. Hunter’s class visited with Sergeant Scott Myers from the Army National Guard. Sgt. Myers gave students a better understanding of the military and the opportunities associated with service. Students even got a chance to try MREs soldiers eat in times of combat.
