Support Today’s Students

Our goal of supporting the educational opportunities and well-being of today’s students depends on your generosity.


Our goal is to use the creativity and generosity of our district’s patrons to provide exemplary educational opportunities beyond what our resources currently allow.


We believe providing enriched educational opportunities improves the learning of all students, not only those from families that might struggle to provide those experiences on their own.


We devote resources to the physical and emotional well-being of our students because we believe those needs are equally important to all students and our staff. Illness, emotional distress, extreme need, and disruption caused by conflict degrade the learning experience for all students and make it more difficult for staff members to be fully engaged in student learning.


We recognize that the state support for public education in Iowa is not keeping up with the increasing costs of providing services for our students.


Specific examples of current needs:

  • Educational field trips
  • Extra instructional materials
  • Health assistance for students in need
  • Advanced training for teachers
  • Innovative reading programs
  • Assistance for students who want to participate in extracurricular activities
    (athletics, band, drama, FFA, etc.)
