Students, Parents, and Staff Members, Previously this letter was sent to you on February 16th regarding a survey that we are using to develop the strategic plan for our school district. We want to thank those who have participated in this survey so far. As a reminder, Minatare Public Schools has partnered with the Nebraska Association of School Boards (NASB) to develop a formal Strategic Plan to guide our district for the next five years. The survey will come to you via email and will be from the address email@example.com (that is a q not a g). These surveys are available in both English and Spanish. It is important that we gather as much input from our stakeholders as possible, so I am asking for your participation to help guide the decisions that we make for the school district in the next 3-5 years. The student survey should take about 15 minutes. The parent survey and the staff survey are more detailed and will take 30-45 minutes to complete. The window to take the survey closes March 1st. Additionally, we will be hosting two Community Engagement meetings, open to the public, at the Minatare Elementary gym on March 7th at 7:30 pm and on March 8th at 7:30 pm. The meeting on March gth will have translators there to assist with Spanish speakers. Personnel from NASB will be there to facilitate those meetings. We hope that you will be able to join us in this process!
Due to a scheduling conflict on Thursday, March 17th, Parent Teacher Conferences will now be held on Tuesday, March 15th and Wednesday, March 16th. There will be a 1:30 dismissal on both of those days and conferences will run from 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm.
Minatare High School FFA Sponsored the Teacher Appreciation Breakfast this morning! Thank you all. Great Food, Great Sponsors, & Great Leaders! Kiley Grumbles, Aaron Suhr, Norvel Pacheco, Jordyn Taylor-Lopez, Corina Meyers, Brisa Cole, Jackson Schwartz.
Good things come in twos. At least this Tuesday it does. The date is February 22, 2022. When you write it, 2/22/22, it's a palindrome, meaning it reads the same forward and backward. It also falls on a Tuesday, which is now referred to as Twosday.
National FFA Week. Minatare Schools proudly supports our FFA program and we are so proud of each and every individual who represents our Future Leaders
