Dear Savage Families,
I hope you have had a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.
All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facilities.
Each year brings positive change. This includes a few new additions to our staff. We are delighted to welcome Meredith Holm, our new K-12 TAG instructor, Spencer Marsh 5-12 band, Bethany Fehr K-12 vocal, Nathan Kelly high school science, and Thomas Watson, technology coordinator. Each of these individuals bring a great deal of expertise to our district and I have no doubt that they will help to move our district forward.
One big change for the upcoming school year is that Savage Success will now be held in the mornings from 8:15-8:45. This is a designated time for students to get the extra help they may need in their classes. If a student needs to reassess or needs a lesson retaught, this is their time to get that accomplished. The first bell will now ring at 8:10. Students in grades 11 and 12 will have late arrival, unless they are being pulled by a teacher to work on a lesson or to reassess. Juniors and seniors will need to arrive at school by 8:45.
School lunches will once again be free this school year. If a child gets doubles or ala carte items, they will be charged. Please make sure you keep your lunch accounts in the green.
I would like to invite you to visit our new district webpage, www.sigourneyschools.com This will serve as a great resource for upcoming events, Infinite Campus login, handbooks, staff directory, lunch menu, weather related information, etc. I also encourage you to go to your app store on your cell phone and download our new school app, Sigourney CSD. Don’t forget to also like our facebook page.
If you have not registered your child(ren) for the 2021-2022 school year, please register them online through Infinite Campus. If you have questions or have difficulty, please contact Valorie Weber at firstname.lastname@example.org or (641)622-2350.
Your commitment to ensuring that Sigourney Jr./Sr. High School remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Please stop by and say hello. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all students.
Yours in Education,
