School Notes

Gresham Community School

There was a two-hour delay on Dec. 14 due to heating issues.

Gresham Community School participated in Christmas Is for Caring. Mittens marked with items needed were placed on the school Christmas tree. Anyone willing to donate was encouraged to take a mitten off the tree and donate the item listed. Nonperishable food donations were also collected by the Gresham FFA chapter during the FFA Haunted Forest.

There will be a nine-day vacation for students due to winter break. School will resume Jan. 3.

Bowler School District

Nearly 125 people attended the Bowler School District family night held Dec. 7 at the Stockbridge-Munsee Family Center. It was billed as “Mini Powwow: Traditions Explained.” People were treated to a night of great food (chili and fry bread), fellowship and the mini-powwow and dance lessons, highlighted by the Medicine Bear dancers and drummers. Everyone was also able to pick out a free book to take home and was able to sign up for a family night raffle that will take place near the end of the school year.

The event, coordinated by Jeff DePerry and Harold Katchenago, who also served as emcee for the event, was also sponsored by Stockbridge-Munsee Family Services Program.
