Dress for Less Prom Season Wrap-up

 

Another prom season is in the books, and what a great one it was for Dress for Less! We grow each year because of you – thank you for that!!

 

Everyone whose dress sold has received the sale money. When dresses sell, owners receive the entire selling price. Just this year, two of our owners had two dresses sell, so they each received checks for $400! We love making dresses more affordable AND getting money back to owners.

 

All owners of dresses in our current collection should have received an informational postcard in the mail towards the end of April. Let us know if you have any questions about that.

 

For those wanting to pick up your dress(es) from our collection, please contact us via email or Facebook to make arrangements. Owners do NOT have to pick up dresses. We'd love to keep trying to sell them for you for up to three years.

We will plan another collection day in May/June to start preparing for next year’s sale.

Wow! What a Season

 This year’s speech season was a very productive affair! We went to state in both Large Group and Individual. Also, although it doesn’t seem like much, our numbers of participants doubled this year! As head coach I’m counting this as a win! Another amazing moment of our season was taking ten different pieces to District Individual Contest in Manson and having seven of those pieces go on to State Individual Contest! An even more exciting moment was finding out that Jennifer Greve, senior, was nominated for All-State Speech! This is basically the highest honor that a Speech participant can receive! Jenni will participate on March 27th at All-State Contest in Cedar Falls on the UNI campus! Thank you for your support and we all cannot wait until next season!

 

NEW IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS ENTERING BOTH 7TH AND 12TH GRADES FOR THE 2017/2018 SCHOOL YEAR 

The Iowa Department of Public Health has made changes to the Iowa Immunization law for the start of the 2017/18 school year.  This change requires that all students entering 7th grade have both a Meningococcal vaccine and a Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis/whopping cough) booster before school starts this fall.  

The Tdap requirement has been in place since the 2013/14 school year and requires a booster dose of Tetanus, Diphtheria, and acellular Pertussis containing vaccine for students entering 7th grade, regardless of the interval since the last Tetanus/Diphtheria containing vaccine.  Pertussis (whopping cough) is a very contagious disease that causes violent coughing fits that make it hard to breathe.  

Meningococcal disease is a life threatening illness that is caused by bacteria that infects the brain, blood, and spinal cord.  It easily spreads in crowded settings.   The vaccine will be required prior to both the 7th and 12th grades. 

All students entering 7th grade must have proof of having both the Meningococcal and the Tdap vaccines, and students entering 12th grade must have the Meningococcal vaccine, before school starts in August, unless the student has a Certificate of Immunization Exemption

 There will be no grace/extension period for the implementation of this requirement.  According to state law, these vaccines, or exemption certificate must be submitted to the school BEFORE the first day of school this fall, or student will NOT be able to attend until this is completed.

Dress for Less Pick-up or Drop-off Day

East Sac students are enjoying heading to “Hollywood” for this month’s prom, but we’re already preparing for next year.  We’re planning on two two-day sales on weekends in January 2018, and we need dresses to sell!  If you’re interested in selling your prom dresses, we are the perfect place.  You can pay $5 per dress, place the selling price at no more than half of what you originally paid, and take home all of the profit once your dress sells.  Dresses must be a current style (within the past three years), clean, and in a dress bag. We are happy to take older dresses as donations. Our shoppers have looked for dresses for adult prom, costume parties, and 4-H projects!

If your dress(es) has not sold and you would like it back, feel free to contact us via Facebook or email to make arrangements. You may also stop in on the drop-off day to pick up your dress. 

Look for the date for the pick-up and drop-off day to be scheduled in late April or early May. Any questions can be directed to East Sac County High School teachers Kerri Eichhorn or Rachel Hemer. Email keichhorn@eastsac.k12.ia.us or rhemer@eastsac.k12.ia.us.

SPRING PLAY

The East Sac County Drama department is busy working on a spring play entitled 12 Incompetent Jurors by Ian McWethy. We have roughly 25 kids working hard on memorizing lines, getting the set ready, gathering props and costumes, and many other tasks that are assigned to them.  Our performances are scheduled for Friday March 24th & Saturday March 25th at 7:00pm at the Middle School Auditorium.  The play is a comedy that takes you into a jury room with 12 zany men and women who are asked to decide the fate of a “cat-napper”.  Between the bickering married couple, to the creepy “French-fry” guy, to the bratty teenager who can’t put her phone down, these 12 jurors provide a wide range of opinions in this funny hour long show.   Please mark down on your calendar March 24th & 25th to attend one or both of the shows, you will roll with laughter!!

Prom 2017

This year the junior class has chosen the theme “Hollywood.” Plans are well under way to make this a memorable and safe night for the kids.

Decorations, food, and many other small details have been decided and will be ready to put in place once the big day arrives. The location of the Grand March and dinner will be in the large gym at the high school. The Grand March will begin at 5:30 and is open to the public; doors will be open at 4:30 for the public to find a seat. The dance will be held in the small gym after the dinner at the high school and will end at approximately 10:30; this will work out great and keep the students in one place for the night.

As the big day approaches, please be on the look out for more information regarding Prom and the Grand March. The junior class works very hard to host the prom, and we are certain they will be ready to off their hard work on April 8th!

NURSE NOTES:
Dear Parents or Guardians,

I am writing to inform you of some health concerns and as a general reminder of our school health policies regarding school children and health issues.  “Tis the Season of Influenza A, Diarrhea, coughing, head lice, Strep throat and many others”

Students, who have vomited, must remain home for 24 hours since last vomiting.

Students who have symptoms of influenza (upper respiratory) must remain home for 24 hours until the coughing and fever have subsided.  If a student has a fever of 100.6* or above, they MUST remain home until they have no fever and have not taken any fever reducing medicine for 24 hours.  As influenza is airborne, this policy will be enforced to ensure a healthy environment for all at school.  I understand that it is difficult when you have to arrange for different childcare, or take off work yourself to be home with a sick child.  Many times they can still have symptoms, even mild, and are acting just fine and wanting to come back to school, and you are ready for them to also!  However, if a child returns to school, still exhibiting these symptoms, they will be putting other students and staff at risk of getting sick also.  If your child does come back to school sick, we will call you to come and pick them up.  We will do all we can to try to stop the spread of illnesses, this does include diarrhea.

If you have any questions, please email me at kwilliams@eastsac.k12.ia.us.  You can also call either elementary buildings in Sac City 712-662-7200 (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), Wall Lake 712-664-2627 (Tuesday or Thursday)

Happy Holidays

§  Dress for Less will be holding the Big Sale in the small gym at the high school in Lake View. Shop here for a huge selection of styles and sizes and find the perfect prom dress! 

 High school teachers Kerri Eichhorn and Rachel Hemer founded the Dress for Less organization in 2014 to start a movement in our area of buying gently used formalwear. Why spend $600 on a dress that will be worn just once when Dress for Less sells designer label dresses priced anywhere from $5 to $300? When girls consign their dress, we suggest they price it right around half of the original price. All of our dresses are in great condition for a fraction of the original price. Worried about finding your size? We have a fantastic selection of dresses from size 0 to 28. Check out all of our dresses with sizes and prices on our Facebook page at Dress for Less – ESC Raiders. Once dresses hit the Facebook page, they are ready to sell, so you can start shopping now for the perfect dress for East Sac’s 2017 prom theme – Hollywood. Make Dress for Less your first stop for prom dresses. It’s your time to shine!

PARENT-TEACHER CONFERNCES

 

November 1st and November 3rd from 4:00-7:00 PM

 

NO SCHOOL on November 4th

 

 

Dress for Less

         We’re on the hunt for dresses again!  It’s hard to believe, but prom will be here before you know it.  Many girls don’t want to spend upwards of $300 on a dress they’ll wear only once, so we need your gently used dresses! Dress sale is scheduled for January 2017.

         Anyone from surrounding areas wishing to sell a dress – any type in any size – can pay $5 to include your dress in our sale.  The dress must be a current style, clean, and in good condition.  You choose the sale price.  When your dress sells, you get ALL of the sale price money sent to you via check within a week of the sale.  If your dress does not sell, we will continue advertising it on our Facebook page (Dress for Less – ESC Raiders) and putting it in future sales unless we hear directly that you prefer to pick it up. 

             You are also welcome to simply donate a dress and forgo the profit.  This you can do without paying the $5 entry fee.  We will also be collecting free will donations of shoes, jewelry, and purses.  No donation fee required, but you will also not make a profit from shoes and accessories.

Please find and like us on Facebook to stay informed about collections and sale date in January and help us spread the word!

Reading Goals

2015-16 Reading Goal: 100% of the students in grades 3-11 will be proficient or advanced on the Iowa Assessment-Reading.

 East Sac County Schools did not meet their reading goal for 2015-2016 in any grade 3 through 11.


 
Long-Range Goal for East Sac County Schools:

(Pending School Board approval and as reported in the Iowa Department of Education state CASA report):

By the year 2020 95% of students in grades 2 through 6 will be at or above benchmark on the FAST Adaptive Reading (aReading) assessment.

  

The annual goal for the 2016-2017 school year:

(Pending School Board approval and as reported in the Iowa Department of Education state CASA report):

In the spring of 2016, 65% of students in grades 2 through 4 were at or above benchmark on the FAST Adaptive Reading (aReading) assessment. By the spring of 2017, we will increase that percentage to 75%.

 

Graduation Rate

 The state developed a new way of reporting graduation rates starting with the class of 2010.  This data comes from the Department of Education and is always one year behind the other data reported in the Annual Progress Report.  One way that is reported is with the group of freshmen that started school together and graduated in the spring of 2015.  With that group of students we had a graduation rate of 97.10% compared to 90.78% statewide. East Sac County had no fifth-year student’s graduate in 2015. 


 
PARENT-TEACHER CONFERNCES

 November 1st and November 3rd from 4:00-7:00 PM

 NO SCHOOL on November 4th

 

 

Dress for Less

         We’re on the hunt for dresses again!  It’s hard to believe, but prom will be here before you know it.  Many girls don’t want to spend upwards of $300 on a dress they’ll wear only once, so we need your gently used dresses!

         Anyone from surrounding areas wishing to sell a dress – any type in any size – can pay $5 to include your dress in our sale.  The dress must be a current style, clean, and in good condition.  You choose the sale price.  When your dress sells, you get ALL of the sale price money sent to you via check within a week of the sale.  If your dress does not sell, we will continue advertising it on our Facebook page (Dress for Less – ESC Raiders) and putting it in future sales unless we hear directly that you prefer to pick it up. 

             You are also welcome to simply donate a dress and forgo the profit.  This you can do without paying the $5 entry fee.  We will also be collecting free will donations of shoes, jewelry, and purses.  No donation fee required, but you will also not make a profit from shoes and accessories.

Please find and like us on Facebook to stay informed about collections and sale dates and help us spread the word!

 FAFSA—College Financial Aid

Big Changes for 2017-2018

 What’s changing for 2017–2018?

  • You’ll be able to submit your FAFSA earlier. The 2017-2018 FAFSA will now be available and you can file as early as October 1, 2016 rather than beginning on January 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling you to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
  • You’ll use earlier income and tax information. Beginning with the 2017–2018 FAFSA, students and their families will be required to report income and tax information from the federal tax form from two years prior. For example, on the 2017–2018 FAFSA, you—and your parent(s), as appropriate—will report your 2015 income and tax information, rather than your 2016 income and tax information.
  • The chart below shows the changes when a student can submit a FAFSA and the required year’s income to be provided:

2016

How will the changes benefit me?

  • No more tax estimates. Because the FAFSA will ask for older income and tax information, you and your parents, if applicable, will probably already have done your taxes by the time you fill out your FAFSA, and you won’t need to estimate your tax information and then go back into the FAFSA later to update it.
  • Import tax information directly from IRS. You and your parents, if applicable, may be able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) to automatically import your tax information into your FAFSA. (Learn about the IRS DRT at StudentAid.ed.gov/irsdrt.)
  • Improved ability to meet state and college financial aid deadlines. Because the FAFSA is available earlier, you may feel less pressure due to having more time to explore and understand your financial aid options and apply for aid before your state’s and college’s financial aid deadlines. Also, you will likely receive financial aid eligibility information in advance of college admission decision deadline, encouraging more thoughtful and informed enrollment decisions.

Will state and college financial aid deadlines be earlier since the FAFSA is launching earlier?

  • Most state and college deadlines will remain approximately the same as in 2016–17. However, several states that offer first come, first served financial aid may change their deadlines from “as soon as possible after January 1” to “as soon as possible after October 1.” So, as always, it’s important that you check your state and college financial aid deadlines so that you don’t miss out on any aid. State deadlines are on fafsa.ed.gov; college deadlines are on colleges’ websites.

Can I choose to report 2016 information if my family’s financial situation has changed since our 2015 taxes were filed?

  • You must report the information the FAFSA asks for. If your family’s income has changed substantially since the 2015 tax year, contact the financial aid office at your college about your family’s situation.

Note: The FAFSA asks for parent marital status as of the day you fill it out. So, if your parents are married now but weren’t in 2015 (and, therefore, didn’t file taxes as married), they’ll need to add their new spouse’s income to your FAFSA. Similarly, if they filed their 2015 taxes as married but they’re no longer married when you fill out the FAFSA, they’ll need to subtract their spouse’s income.

Will I receive financial aid offers earlier if I apply earlier?

  • Not necessarily; some colleges will make aid offers earlier while others won’t. If you’re thinking of transferring to another college, you might want to look at the College Scorecard at CollegeScorecard.ed.gov to compare costs at different colleges while you wait for your aid offers to arrive. Note: You should be aware that the maximum Federal Pell Grant for 2017–18 won’t be known until early 2017, so keep in mind that even if you do receive an aid offer early, it could change due to various factors.

How will I know what colleges to list on the FAFSA if I haven’t decided which colleges I’ll be applying to?

  • List any colleges you’re considering applying to, and the FAFSA processor will send your FAFSA information to them. Later, if you decide to apply to additional colleges that you didn’t list on the FAFSA, you can log back in at fafsa.ed.gov and add those colleges.

Where can I get more information about—and help with—the FAFSA?

Visit StudentAid.ed.gov/fafsa; and remember, as you fill out your FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov, you can refer to help text for every question and (during certain times of day) chat online with a customer service representative.
