Ms. Lee's Third Grade collected 85 canned food items to donate to the First United Methodist Church of El Dorado. The canned food will be used for the church's Blessing Box. They did this to honor Wayne Fowler (Ms. Lee's uncle) who would have been 99 this month and was a life-long member of the church. They also want to thank the church for all the wonderful things that they do for Skelly. Nice work Ms. Lee's Class!

October is National Principals Month. You can #ThankAPrincipal with an e-card on this website: https://principalsmonth.org/e-cards/ THANK YOU to all of our outstanding USD 490 principals!
All USD 490 schools will dismiss 3 hours early instead of only 2 on October 1 so that staff and students who are participating in the Homecoming Parade will have enough time to safely arrive and be set up for the 2:00 p.m. start time. This means that all elementary schools will dismiss at 11:50 a.m. and the middle and high school will dismiss at 12:40 p.m. that day.
