In our continuing effort to cut down on paper and other resources, and to emphasize our belief that school-related information should be the bulk of the documents sent home to parents, we created this "e-backpack" page. This page will make fliers and information available to parents interested in the activities, programs, and events being promoted by community and local organizations.
As a service to students and their families, the Administration of USD #464 authorizes the distribution of information intended solely to notify students and their parents of opportunities to participate in youth-related programs, activities or events.
Please keep in mind that USD 464 does not sponsor any of the activities on this page. We are simply making the information available.
First State Bank and Trust Spirit Debit Cards: First State Bank and Trust is proud to announce a partnership between the district and the bank for School Spirit Debit Cards. Each time a card is swiped (just shop, sign and go!), a donation is made to the district.
CLIMB Brochure: Children who have family members with cancer have questions and thoughts that aren't always easy to talk about. CLIMB® — Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery — was developed by the Children’s Treehouse Foundation. It provides children with an understanding of what cancer is and how it is treated, and it gives them an opportunity to form new friendships and bond with others going through a similar experience. Children learn they’re "not the only kid in school with a family member who has cancer."
Skate City Free Skate Pass for May: Skate City is sponsoring free skating for students any Friday in May. Make sure you print the linked pass and take it with you!
TES Summer Reading Program: Research shows that if students don't read during the summer, they can lose reading and vocabulary skill. Unfortunately, this loss tends to build up summer after summer, so that by the time these students reach middle school they can be two years behind their classmates in reading and learning skills.
To combat this problem, TES has started a Summer Reading Program! Click on the link for details and a special challenge by Mr. Poell. Turn the form in to your teacher for a treat!
