Circle of Friends
"We all have the capacity to be a superhero. In order to become one, you just have to find your unique power or ability and exploit it for the greater good. The cape and mask are optional accessories, but a kind heart is essential." Robert Clancy
This famous quote is quite fitting for our middle school theme: Be A Hero – Helping Everyone Reach Opportunities. It was also the focus of our first Circle of Friends activity on Friday, September 19th. The Circle of Friends members in grades 6, 7 and 8 are paired together based on similar interests. They get to learn more about each other throughout the year as they meet each nine weeks to do friendship building activities
Patrons will also see a new web page at www.usd396.net this new page is a work in progress as teachers and staff are busy building their new pages. Over the course of the next several weeks you will see this page develop and district patrons will be able to access more information than ever before. There are two immediate enhancements that we encourage you explore and utilize. The first enhancement is the E-Note Sign Up that will give you the ability to customize an electronic notification based on your individual and family needs. This function is utilized by signing up on our web page and you will to able to receive notifications on your smart phone. The second enhancement is the calendar option. The district has one calendar for all events in the district. The calendar link is located on the left side of the home page, by clicking the calendar option under quick links users can access the district calendar and also utilize the notify me option as well as the subscribe option. These features will give you instant notification when scheduling and event changes are made. The district will continue to make information more available by utilizing the functions of our new web page.

Ice Cream For Everyone!
The second annual Seal Elementary Ice Cream Social was held September 15th. Students, parents and teachers enjoyed ice cream with toppings and hung out on the tennis courts to socialize. Mr. Unrau provided music and karaoke entertainment, which was a big hit with the kids. The Ice Cream Social is designed as a laid-back event to promote positive relationships and engagement with our school. It was a great way to help kick-off our school year!
Taste of France Culinary Tour
Mrs. Nispel, Douglass High School’s Family and Consumer Science Teacher, will be taking a group of students to France on a culinary tour. The tour will be June 2-10, 2016. The destinations on the tour will be Paris, Normandy, and Loire Valley. We are signing up people now for the tour. To go on the tour, you must be at least 13 years old, on or before the tour begins. Students, parents, community members, and friends are all invited to attend. This tour will expand your mind and entice your taste buds, unveiling the secrets of the highly regaled French cuisine to every cook and foodie on your tour. Once you’ve had your fill of crepes and escargot, take a break from gastronomical research to explore the number of historical and artistic pit stops throughout Paris and the countryside. Come prepared with your best French and chef hat—and of course, come with an appetite.
