Looking towards the future at Career Day

5/2/2018

Community businesses, colleges, armed forces personal and Weeks’ alumni spent the day helping our students explore career paths.

We thank our community partners for the amazing experience for our students.

Vaccinations Required for All 7th Graders

4/4/2018

No shot, No school! Iowa law requires that all students entering 7th grade be vaccinated for meningitis and receive a Tdap (whooping cough) booster. We are asking that all students complete this requirement by the end of March to assure that there is no delay in the start of your child’s 7th grade year. Contact your doctor as soon as possible to make an appointment.

Open and say “AHHHH”
