Junior and senior students who would be interested in attending the Iowa State University Precision Agriculture/Animal Science Day need to sign the sheet in the office no later than the end of the school day on Tuesday, August 30. The date of the Iowa State Day will be either September 6, 7, or 8. The event is at the Northwest Research Farm in Sutherland, Iowa.

The juniors and seniors would like to invite you all to Trinity Christian High School this Labor Day for a pancake breakfast! The students will provide the labor, and you just have to bring an empty stomach! All donations will go to the junior and senior classes. A breakfast of cinnamon rolls, pancakes, egg casseroles, sausage, and assorted fruit will be waiting for you here Labor Day morning. We will be serving from 7:30 to 9:30. See you there!

Our first Fun Friday will be this week Friday, September 2. Students will have the opportunity to order from Subway. Orders are due by Wednesday noon. Payment will be collected on Friday.

The American State Bank is sponsoring a noon “tailgate” for our students and staff on Friday, September 23. The bank will provide all the food and the student council will sponsor some activities. We are looking for two volunteers to join us to help serve (and eat!) the food. Just contact Mrs. Uittenbogaard in the office to volunteer.

Students and staff are quickly settling into the routine of this new school year. This is the final week for adding and dropping classes.


If you would like to purchase a 2021-2022 yearbook, they are available in the office or in Mrs. Bloemendaal’s room.  The cost of a yearbook is $30.

There is a small, but dedicated, group of students in need of a robotics coach. This is a paid position, but the real reward is in working with the covenant young people in a great environment. See Mr. Regnerus if you are interested. The season starts soon!
