Hello from the Home of the Wolverines!

We passed the halfway mark for the school year on January 18th!  It definitely flew by for all of us, so here is a little recap of the last few months at the school.

The JH Boys’ basketball team had another successful season wrap up right before the holidays, and our JH Girls’ basketball team is in full swing with tournaments almost every Saturday.  Our Nordic Ski team has competed well at their races as they gear up for their last month and a half of the season.  Our HS basketball teams have played well so far and have shown great improvement every weekend in anticipation of their District Tournaments in mid-February.  Check out the school website and the new reader board for the latest schedule changes.

The 2nd Quarter Report Cards for all 2nd through 6th graders and the 7th through 12th graders 1st semester report cards are available on the parent portal.  If you would like a hard copy mailed home, please contact the school office.  We are continuing to revamp the Kindergarten and 1st grade report cards, so they will be sent home.

We got to showcase our new multipurpose room with our K-6 Holiday program and 4th through 12th grade winter concerts.  We should have our new sound system and lighting in any day now and will be hosting our annual drama production in late February, and then the Missoula Children’s Theater production in mid-March, so stay tuned to our announcements page on our website for more details.

Recently, our Special Education Department, consisting of teacher Mrs. Mentzer, and her paraprofessional aides Ms. Holtzman, Mrs. Peters, and Mrs. Loomis, won the CSPD Region IV Special Ed Teacher/para team award of the year.  They will be honored in Missoula at the Montana Council for Exceptional Children conference.  Way to go!

I would like to thank everyone in the community for all of your support this year and previous years.  We couldn’t do what we do without you!  Please check out our school website for up to date information on school happenings: www.westyellowtone.k12.mt.us.  Always feel free to send me an email if you have any questions relating to the school: kflanagan@westyellowstone.k12.mt.us.
