FREEDOM FESTIVAL ART CONTEST RESULTS

The Freedom Festval sponsored an art contest this winter, which was open to all Conestoga students.  Nine entries were received.  Discovering that our local students demonstrate some amazing art talent, made the selection process very difficult.

At a presentation at school in the presence of their friends and peers, runner-up, freshman, Jackson Steckler, and first-prize winner, senior, Andrew Jimenez, received framed copies of their submissions and gift cards to Blick Art Supply store from the Festival's Co-Vice president, Matt Lewis and Treasurer, Nikki Lewis.

2017 FREEDOM FESTIVAL GRAND MARSHAL

Every community has that certain someone who is a ‘shining star’, a perfect example of the phrase, ‘good neighbor’.  These people might or might not belong to any certain civic organization, group, or church, they might even be related to you, and they’re always willing to help whenever and wherever they see a need.  Whether young or old, male or female, they unselfishly go through life, demonstrating the quality of good citizenship, caring for one another, with love of their fellow man and country, while never expecting any recognition for their deeds.  It could be a neighbor, teacher, business person or couple who’s made a positive influence in the lives of others.

If you know someone like this, please consider nominating them for the

2017 FREEDOM FESTIVAL GRAND MARSHAL.  

Download the form by clicking the link above or here.

Please mark your calendars for April 21st for our spring carnival!  It will be a fun family night for our school community, including student prizes, cake walk, bounce houses, and many fun-filled
carnival games!

In order to make our carnival successful, we need around 100 volunteers. We are in great need for volunteers, especially the second shift of the night. The shifts run from 5:00-7:00 or 7:00-9:00. Please consider signing up for a shift, or encouraging any groups or Conestoga High School students to volunteer their time to this community event.

We are also looking for a few more donations. Primarily, we need more cakes/cupcakes for the cake walk and individual bags of potato chips. To sign up for donations or volunteer time, please go to the following:

THE KIDS NEED YOUR HELP!

Hunger is an evil thing. Without enough good food, you can't think clearly, your immune system becomes compromised and you can become sick more often.  With Spring now here, they also need lighter clothing, shorts, short-sleeved shirts and tops, sundresses, etc.

When you donate to the Conestoga Backpack Program, the school staff sends food, hygiene and clean clothes home with more than 30 needy kids.  

You may donate items at any time through May. There is a container at Cornerstone Bank, you may take items to Conestoga Elementary School, or call Jill, 402-660-3543, and she'll arrange to have your items picked up at your home.

It's easy to help.  Each time you go to the grocery store, just pick up one extra item for the kids.

*Suggested food items should be somewhat easy for small children to open and prepare:

*Canned Goods,*Granola Bars,*Cereal,*Cereal Bars,*Mac & Cheese,*Tuna or chicken salad with crackers,*Fruit Cups, Bar Soap, Toothpaste/toothbrush, Shampoo/Conditioner, Clothes/Coats  

 THANK YOU!!

2017 03 29 MDK OxbowVetCamp

Junior Vet Camp
For students completing 2nd - 5th grades

The Oxbow Junior Veterinarian Camp is designed especially for children who have a passion for animals and veterinary medicine.

The 4-day camp includes many hands-on activities involving live animals, games and unique crafts.

Campers learn about veterinary tools, x-rays, body systems and functions, and important issues like animal over-population. In addition, they also get to practice activities like real veterinarians perform, including record-keeping and animal health exams.

At the end of camp, they perform a mock surgery, using all that they’ve learned. Campers get their very own set of scrubs and a stethoscope to take home.

Elmwood-Murdock Elementary School (Elmwood, NE) June 5 - 8

I have a special attachment for this camp as I worked at Oxbow Animal Health for many years and this was a project I helped start. Any child who loves animals would love this camp.

For more information and registration visit the Oxbow Academy website.

Classes are offered Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday during the public school year at 9:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., at the PACE Center, 15508 2nd Ave. The PACE Center is located across from the high school to the west.
