Iowa High School Youth Survey: Dear parents and students: On Monday, November 14, 9th and 11th graders will meet in their Living Group locations at 8:25. Staff sponsors for each Living Group will be present and assist with starting the survey for the students by reading the instructions for the survey. The instructions are attached. At least one staff person must remain in the room the entire time students are completing the survey. At 8:25, students will receive an email with a link to the survey. Students who complete the survey before the first bell at 9:20 must remain in the classroom. They may work on homework or read a book. All 10th and 12th grade students will not be required to report to school until the first bell at 9:20 am. Those who ride the bus or have no other option but to arrive at school at 8:25 can remain in the courtyard until the first bell.

Honor Cheer is an event that rewards the academic, athletic, and civic involvement of the top cheerleaders in Iowa each year. Each school is allowed to select the cheerleaders (up to three and they must be Jr or Sr) that have succeeded in the classroom and have also been involved in their churches and communities. These young people are selected by students and teachers and also have to qualify by grade point average. Honor Cheer is a celebration of cheerleading, first of all, but also the celebration of building quality young leaders in the state of Iowa.
Each year the Honor Cheer participants perform during the half-times of the playoff football games at the UNI DOME in Cedar Falls. This year they will perform during the Class 2A and Class 3A championship games.
We will leave Thursday morning, the 17th, and attend an all day practice at UNI that day, and then perform on Friday morning and afternoon. This year’s Unity participants are: Ellie Struck, Meghan Vos, and Meysi Pennings. Congratulations girls!
