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.

- 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.
