Veteran's Day/Important Dates

Hello students and families!

Happy November!  I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful fall weather we’ve been having and taking advantage of the above freezing temperatures, as we know in South Dakota that winter temps will surely follow! 

This week we will be celebrating Veteran’s Day with a Veteran’s Breakfast held at the Elementary School beginning at 7:30am, and a traditional program beginning at 2:00pm in the Groton Area Arena.  Please scroll down to view the class and bell schedule for the MS/HS Building for the school day on November 11th, as classes will run on a shortened schedule. 

Some other highlights to note this week are the dual credit enrollment days:

  • Monday November 8th for Board of Regents 4-year schools.  All juniors and seniors may see Mrs. Schwan on Monday November 8th DURING their current dual credit hour to register for next semester, any student not currently enrolled in a dual credit course may see Mrs. Schwan during their study hall. 
  • Tuesday November 9th for South Dakota Technical College 2-year programs.  All juniors and seniors may see Mrs. Schwan and Lee Quale from Lake Area Technical College during their current dual credit hour, or study hall hour if student does not have a dual credit course this semester.  Lee Quale is the Dual Credit Enrollment Representative from Lake Area Technical College and can help students register for enrollment in any of the South Dakota Technical Colleges.

For your convenience, additional “Dates to Know” are listed below.  Have a great week, and a happy fall everyone!
