In the Spotlight

5th Grade MLK Day Actitivities
Fifth graders at the middle school spent time on Martin Luther King Day learning about Martin Luther King and his influence on our nation's history. Students also learned about how his national holiday has become a day of service.  Students wrote about their dreams for our world, nation, and community, and they participated in activities to serve members in their community.  Some examples included making bookmarks for the library, creating beautiful and festive placemats to decorate senior living cafeterias for Valentine's Day, and making scarves to donate to local groups.

The Storm Lake School District Foundation invites you to purchase a paver brick and join the SLSD Foundation in leaving a legacy for our students of today and tomorrow.

The Foundation’s vision is to financially assist the Storm Lake Community School District with educational programs, cultural and extra-curricular opportunities, technology needs, and the necessary equipment and facilities to meet the changing needs of our students and community.  Past support has included support of extra-curricular activities and classroom incentive grants.  Click the picture for more information and an order form.
