Wildcat News

Extra, extra, read all about it! Every day our students accomplish great things, and we want to help keep you involved. We encourage you to visit our News page often to stay informed of all the latest events and stories.

Picture Retakes

Picture retakes will take place on Thursday, October 6. If your student did not get their picture taken or you do not like the August picture, this is the day for retakes. If you need an order form, please contact the office.


Students may wear their Halloween costumes (no masks) to school on Monday, October 31. We will only allow masks at the classroom parties. Weather permitting, we will parade outside at 9:45 a.m. Parties will take place from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. Costumes should be school appropriate and least restrictive. If in doubt about the appropriateness of a costume, please check with Mrs. Dennis.

Book Fair

Our school book fair is on Thursday, November 3 through Thursday, November 10. Your student’s teacher will send home a time slot for you to shop the book fair with the class. The book fair will also be open during parent-teacher conferences. 

Volley for a Cure

Each year, your Lady Cats Volleyball team hosts two major fundraisers. These girls and their families work tirelessly to raise money and awareness for a great cause. The theme for this year is "We Fight Together/More Than 4", meaning that only 4% of all money raised for cancer research goes towards children's cancer research. We want to change that! The Lady Cats Volleyball team has chosen to send all of the funds that we raise from the Real Men Wear Pink co-ed softball tournament (held at the North Island on October 15) and Volley for a Cure (held at WHS on October 11) to the Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute, in memory of our young friend Megan Bugg. These funds will help to continue Megan's mission to finance important childhood cancer research projects.

If you would like more information about registering a team for the Real Men Wear Pink Co-Ed Softball Tournament, making a donation, or how you can help with these fundraisers, please contact event chairperson Megan Van Duyne by email or at (815)926-1792.

Order your spirit wear today to support this great cause! Let's pack our schools and town with pink! All orders will arrive in time for the Volley for a Cure event to your child's school! As always, thank you for your support!
