Principal's Message

  • Ms. Cottrell

    Hello Vikings,

    Welcome to third trimester.  We have several things to look forward to this trimester from Spring Break, dances, track season and our end of the year NW traditions where students do service projects and have fun.  Our PSTO has plans to put on an international night in the spring, so keep an eye out for more information regarding the festivities. 

    I want to announce that we have a new attendance and sports administrative assistant, Lauren Rios.  Lauren previously worked as our administrative assistant for media.  Please, continue to communicate your student’s attendance needs with her.  For those of you planning to have your student take extended days off, please communicate the plans with Mrs. Rios ASAP and she will reach out for administrative approval.   Don’t forget that we will break for spring 3/13-3/17.  I look forward to a relaxing break with family. 


    Laura Cottrell, Principal

  • New 7th Grade Immunization Requirements

    Per Iowa law, at the start of the 2017-18 school year there will be two immunizations required for 7th grade entry. These immunizations are Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis/whooping cough) and meningococcal (to prevent meningitis, a bacteria that infects the brain, blood and spinal cord).

    This weekend, much of the world’s attention was focused on an effort by the federal government to impose restrictions on the ability of immigrants and refugees to come to the United States. From protestors at airports and on the streets to lawyers and judges in courtrooms, there was a swift reaction by many in support of immigrants and refugees.
