Thanks from the
I wasn’t planning to be an acting superintendent
when the year started. But it has been a joy to partner with our community’s
board, faculty and staff, parents and, yes, students in making this a great
year. To our parents and patrons let me simply say that it is with pride that
we bet our lives on youth and each other in making good things happen for our
students. This year, the voters of the district took a gigantic step forward
in approving the necessary bond issue for the new pre-K through grade 3
elementary school. You can see the landscape of our community changing.
What’s more, a large part of northwest Iowa can see the promise of our
future, and they’re quick to speak of that future in positive, some almost
envious ways. So congratulations to all of the citizens of our district and
There are a lot of things we can do together next
year, and I look forward to the challenge. In the meantime, I’ll borrow a
phrase from the song our choir sang at commencement this year: “Because I knew you, I have been changed

Physicals: Don’t forget to
get your child’s physical scheduled this summer if they are participating in
sports, cheerleading, or drill team.
Medications: Please make
arrangements with me if your student will have medicine to bring home at the
end of the school year.
Incoming Freshman and Kindergarten
students need to turn in a dental form for the 2010-2011 school year. Forms can be found on the school website.
Hinton Preschool Options
The Hinton School District
submitted an application May 14th for a Statewide Voluntary Preschool grant
opportunity that may expand preschool options for four-year-old children
beginning in the fall of 2010. If
funded, the Hinton District will continue to offer quality preschool and
daycare for three and four-year-olds at the Little Hawks Center, along with
an additional session of preschool only for four-year-olds in the afternoon.
The cost of the afternoon only session will be on a weekly basis and will be
determined based on the funding awarded.
The purpose of the Statewide Voluntary Preschool Program is to provide
an opportunity for young children in the state of Iowa to enter school ready
to learn by expanding statewide voluntary access to quality preschool
curricula for four-year-old children. As part of the requirements, children
must receive instruction by a certified early childhood teacher. To qualify,
children must be four by September 15, 2010.
Children also must be a resident of Iowa, but may live outside the
Hinton School District. The Preschool currently has sixteen four-year-old children
enrolled for the 2010-2011 school year.
The District will be notified as to the amount of funding on June 7,
