All students PK-4th grade will be sent home with devices (regardless if you have home devices). Reminder: this is only IF we go virtual for all school. Also that MS/HS have you do this at registration process because they do 1:1 all year. Thank you for your cooperation.

A couple weeks ago we teased a picture of a pretty cool package that we have received at New Hampton Middle School. Today is the day we tell you what it is! Through a program with the U.S. Navy, Mr. Rude was able to obtain a small piece of the USS Arizona! The Arizona was famously sunk on December 7th, 1941 during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Chickasaw County had two residents make the ultimate sacrifice aboard the ship. We plan to put the relic on display in the middle school, with some of our middle school students helping to curate and design the display. If anyone would like to help out, the curation team is looking for stories and information regarding Chickasaw County connections to the Pearl Harbor events. Additionally, we are interested in including other artifacts that help create context and connection between Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona, and Chickasaw County/New Hampton Middle School. If you have artifacts that you are willing to donate or loan to NHMS that are related to Pearl Harbor, Paul Johanns, William Ball, or WW2 Navy, we would be honored to display it and tell it's story. Check out the New Hampton Tribune tomorrow for a story with even more details.

Mrs. Schmitt's Foods I students did a food lab called "Cake Contest." The students were to create a cake without a recipe choosing their ingredients and measurements! Ingredients they could choose from: flour, sugar, milk, baking powder, baking soda, eggs, vegetable oil, yeast, cocoa, salt, water, vanilla, lemon flavoring, almond flavoring and/ or water. Some cakes were very dense because they chose too much liquid and some didn't rise well because they didn't choose the correct leveling ingredients. The activity helped the students understand the importance of Food Science and following a recipe when baking.

New Hampton High School will be returning to full in-person learning on Thursday, October 1st. The Iowa Department of Public Health released new guidance today on mask wearing and quarantine. We feel with our current low rates (we don't report numbers when it's below 5 and district-wide it's well below 5) and this new guidance, we can safely bring back all students to the high school at this time. With the new guidance, wearing masks is as important as ever, so we will continue to wear them when we cannot social distance. Everyone has done a great job at keeping our students and staff safe. It will be good to have everyone back together on Thursday. https://5il.co/lmxh

Guidelines: - Sit in family units that at 6' apart - Spectators are asked to wear a mask to help reduce community spread -If you don't feel well, stay home -If you are quarantined, you must stay home *A person you may sit with at the game could come down with COVID in the future and being around them closer than 6' for 15 minutes with or without a mask would result in a person needing to quarantine for 14 days. Please be cognizant of others and help slow down the spread.

HS Activities/Athletics will continue in our Hybrid model. Students will not be allowed in the building until practice time or when a team leaves. We will need to continue to wear masks and social distance to limit the risk of our activities having to quarantine both inside and outside. That means everyone needs to maintain 6' distance between another person! Going to a distance learning model for the high school for all students would result in all activities and athletics needing to be shut down.

Dear NH Elementary Family, This has been a fabulous week here at school! So amazing to see the kids again! I know it was a great first week for our students, teachers and staff too.

The kids seem to pick up on everything just like they never missed a beat. Thank you to members of our Health and Safety Team and Elementary Return to Learn plan committee for having most details ready for us to go. Thank you to all of the moms/dads/guardians for all your support in coming back this week; we couldn’t do these things for our students without your aid and flexibility! Just a few of the comments I’ve heard from teachers and staff this week: – “This week far exceeded my expectations. I love it here!” – “These are amazing students. What a blessing they are!” – “I’m having so much fun with my students. They are hard working and awesome!” – “The upbeat energy and positive vibe in the school is great!” – “Today was such a wonderful day!” (This was said every day!) You can be confident that your children are in the best and safest of care. Have a wonderful weekend and good luck to our HS football team tonight and a nice win to our VB team last night. Looking forward to celebrating senior parent night with my youngest son as he approaches his last year of high school, time flies by that is for sure. Yours truly, Mrs. Lansing - Elementary Principal

MS/HS Pick-up I wanted to send a reminder as we have had cars backing up traffic or even stopping on the road. Please do not do this as this causes an issue for all involved. Students not riding the bus will not be released from school until the buses have left campus. Our goal is to have buses departing for the elementary playground around 3:15. Please do not arrive any earlier than this, if you do come early do not enter the loading zone, please use ASH Drive across from the school and wait to drive through to pick your student up after buses have departed. Thank you for helping with this issue and keeping everyone safe!

HS Students: We are SO excited to have you all back with us as we start the 20-21 school year. We wanted to give you a heads up and let you know that the absolute last day to make schedule changes this year will be Wednesday, August 26th. No exceptions. Typically, you have about a week to 'try your schedule out' and make changes as needed, but because the schedule looks different this year, you won't have as many days once the school year starts to make changes. Please take a look at your schedule if you haven't already done so and let Mrs. Maas know what/if any changes need to be made. If you're having issues viewing your schedule or understanding how your schedule is going to work this year, please reach out!

Part of the PBL process is expanding your understanding and learning skills specific to a project. In October our 7th graders embarked on a PBL project about the September 11th attacks. One of the resources they used to kick off the project was a video piece called The Man in the Red Bandana. The students determined that it would be helpful to talk with the author of such a powerful video. We reached out to Tom Rinaldi with ESPN to see if he would join us. He graciously accepted...except fall wasn't going to work well due to his commitments during the college football season. So with our impromptu distance learning opportunity, we decided to revisit the idea and May 5th was the day we were able to have him join us. Mr. Rinaldi provided the students with what amounted to be a very interactive and interesting journalism 101 lesson. Tom gave the students a few tips, with the first one being "Listen". He pointed out that the interview is happening to hear from the subject, so listen to what they have to say and then be curious. He also spoke about using open ended questions and not being presumptive, reminded the students that we are hear to listen to what our interviewee has to say. Mr. Rinaldi did an outstanding job of giving basic pointers about interviewing while modeling them for the students by asking them questions, and then follow up questions. At least four of our students can now say that they've been interviewed by an ESPN reporter! We thank Mr. Tom Rinaldi for his time, as well as Derek Volner, who handles PR requests for their time in both setting up the session and conducting it.
