We have extended the deadline to the end of March! The 2022-23 year book committee is comprised of 5th grade students and teachers working together with PTO to create the best yearbook ever. They’ve been hard at work meeting after school, taking candid photographs around the school and capturing many memories from the Fantastic Fellows school year. New this year, the yearbook is a really nice hardbound edition. Order yours TODAY!

Educational Opportunities Outside of School:
One of my goals this year is to let parents know about educational opportunities that are outside of the school but are available in and around Ames. If you’re interested in learning more about opportunities for students in our community, please check out our Digital Backpack for more information.
