Great news! This basketball season you can watch all the Girls and Boys basketball home games for free on the NFHS Network! All you you need to do is make an account with NFHS. First home game for the Pirates are the Girls as they take on Trenton December 17th.
Starting on Monday, Nov. 23, Tioga will be following the mask mandate. Students and staff need to comply. We will work with you, and we will be kind. We do not want to fight over it. Please be positive and let’s get through the next 12 days. We do NOT have school on Wednesday, Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) or Friday. Thank you for your support!
At last night’s Tioga School Board Meeting, the board voted to follow in full the Governor’s Executive Order 2020-43 which addresses the mask mandate and the postponement of NDHSAA winter activities. At Monday, November 16’s meeting, the board voted to recommend, not require, mask usage, but left the NDHSAA postponement intact. Now, the District is following the entire order. We had approximately 40 patrons at the meeting last night. There were several concerns about students wearing masks and how this would be handled by us. It is a mandate-it is not a recommendation-so we can’t just blatantly ignore it. Having said that, we don’t want to fight. The teachers, principals, and I are willing to work with students, and I think if we use common sense, show compassion and empathy, and work with each other, staff and students, we can make this work without hatred and anger. Like everything else we’ve dealt with in the last 9 months, this is all new and what we do on Monday may look differently on Tuesday. We are all learning; we are all trying to survive. Some thoughts we have: Talk to your children about the masks. It is a mandate, but staff is going to work with students. Encourage your children to be positive and be kind. I think if it’s laid out in a manner that we are going to follow this, but we are not going to draw a hard line, we will set up the scenario as “let’s work together on this instead of against each other.” Fighting, hassling, and bullying each other will get none of us anywhere. There were concerns at the meeting about potential ‘bullying.” Remind your child that it’s the teacher job to remind students about masks; not the child’s. The mask mandate is in effect until 11:59 p.m. on December 13. That is 12 school days. Will it be extended? We don’t know. Students in both buildings will be gently reminded about mask wearing, and we are asking that students do their part in working with us. If students politely refuse/don’t comply, teachers will note names and discuss it with the principals who will address it. If students refuse and act inappropriately, they will be treated as if when they act inappropriately in other instances. Like everything else, each teacher will treat the mandate a little differently; we ask students to be flexible. We will work with those students that have medical conditions that truly struggle with a mask. Our guidance is unclear as to how we are to proceed, but we will seek clarification. The “up” side is that we’ve had 63 days in school this fall. With everyone wearing masks, close contacts of positive cases in school will not need to quarantine. They will need to continue wearing a mask, and monitor symptoms. If they start displaying symptoms, they will need to stay home. Please, please, please keep monitoring your children daily and watching for symptoms. If they are sick-not only with COVID, but with colds, flu, etc.-please keep them home until they are well. As many of you don’t like this, many people feel it is the right action. We also need to model respect for others and for the mandate itself. We all have to do things in life we don’t agree with and don’t want to do. We are asking for everyone to work together so we can make this as positive as possible. Thank you for your support. We know this is a touchy topic with many viewpoints, and one we hoped we wouldn’t be a part of; however, we are now. Your kids will do a great job, and so will the staff members. Please contact the school with questions and concerns. See you on Monday!
The Tioga School Board will be meeting tomorrow, November 20, at 6:30 in the THS cafeteria to revisit the action from Monday night's board meeting concerning the mask mandate. All are welcome to attend.

The Tioga School Board is holding a special board meeting on Monday, November 16, at 6:30 p.m. in the THS Cafeteria to discuss Governor Burgum's executive order issued Friday night concerning masks being mandated and the postponement of winter sports until December 14. All are encouraged to attend. Thank you.
Due to Governor Burgum's executive order which became public late Friday at 10:00 p.m. and the ambiguity of the order that addresses a statewide mask mandate as well as the postponement of K-12 school district extracurricular activities, we are going to wait until further clarification is provided on Monday afternoon. That will give some time for the school district and school board to address any potential changes in the Tioga School District operations. The school district will communicate any changes as they are enacted so parents and families are aware of revisions to our current school health and safety plan from the state or school board level. On Monday, November 16, we encourage students and staff to wear masks and to social distance, staying at least 6 feet apart. We will NOT hold wrestling, cheerleading, or girls basketball practice on Monday. Watch for any further changes for winter sports' practices. Thank you,
Great Season, Lady Pirates! So much to be Proud of! This will continue! Go Pirates! 💪

Williams County District 8 Landowners and Taxpayers: "On October 13 and 14, 2020, the State Board of Education will be meeting in Bismarck to approve the voluntary land transfers previously passed by the Williams County #8 School District, Nesson #2 School District and Tioga School District. Williams County #8 is proposing to transfer land that was part of their District to Ray (Nesson #2) and Tioga School Districts. Currently, students living in Williams County #8 have the option to open-enroll or receive tuition agreement approval from the local school boards to attend schools in Ray and Tioga. If approved, residents of the affected townships would be able to serve on Ray and Tioga school boards and vote in school board and bond referendum elections. The State Board is the final step of completing this voluntary land transfer. It is important that the State Board of Education hears from you, the property owners, as to what school district your land is tied to. We encourage you to contact the board members listed on the State Board on the Governor’s website (https://www.governor.nd.gov/boards/BoardDetails.aspx?boardid=115) prior to the October 13 and 14 proceedings.

Below, is information we received regarding the volleyball games in Powers Lake on Tuesday, September 29: Powers Lake Spectator Guidelines COVID-19 2020 Spectators: These guidelines are subject to change at any time. Our guidelines for our volleyball games are as follows: 2 Game Night: *Each Powers Lake player whose team is playing will receive 6 reserve tickets for that game. If two players are siblings, they each will each receive 6 reserve tickets. *For the visiting team, each player will receive 2 reserve tickets. *These reserve tickets will be mailed to the visiting team. * Extra tickets may be available on a first come first serve bases. 3-4 games a Night: *Each Powers Lake player will receive 3 reserve tickets. If two players are siblings, they each will receive 3 reserve tickets. *Each visiting team player will receive 2 reserve tickets. *The coaches will give each Powers Lake player their tickets the night before the game. The reserve tickets must be paid for when the ticket holders enter the game venue. Each person entering the game must be counted and must have a ticket. This means everyone age 1 (walking age) to adults would need a reserved ticket. *On nights where we play 3 or 4 games, we may ask that people leave the school after they watch their child play the Elem. and/or Jr. High games unless they have a daughter playing at the JV or Varsity level. The reason for this is that we need to make room for the parents, players, and fans of the home and visiting teams who are involved in the JV and/or the Varsity games. We also need to stay within the State Guidelines for the number of spectators we can have in our gym. *All fans at the ballgame need to stay in the gym unless they are going to the concession stand or to the bathroom. We cannot have kids wandering in the hallways. They must be in the gym or at home. Please help us show respect for our janitors and their work to clean and sanitize the school for the safety of our fans, teachers, students, and school personnel. Locker Rooms: *For football and volleyball 2-game nights, the home and away teams will use the locker rooms. On 3 or 4 game nights, the home teams will dress in classrooms and the visiting teams will use the locker rooms. Athletes may shower at school if they wish. Live Streaming: All Home volleyball and basketball games will be livestreamed on the Powers Lake Public School Facebook page. Game Personnel: FOOTBALL: The football coaches, the chain gang, and the broadcasting crew will be encouraged to wear a face covering. VOLLEYBALL: The game personnel at the scorer’s bench must wear a face covering. The only people allowed at the scorer’s bench will be the clock keeper, home bookkeeper, and the libero tracker. Concessions: Concessions will be served. They include pop, popcorn, and candy. The lunchroom will not be open so food will be eaten in the gym. These are unusual times. Our ultimate goals are for our students to stay in school safely and for our athletes to play their complete sports’ season. Thank you for your help.

For tonight's volleyball game vs Stanley you will need the following to attend: a printed out ticket that was given to one of the volleyball players or reserved for game officials. Your activity ticket alone will not get you into the game this evening. We are limited to 250 in our gym. This includes our players, Stanley's, Stanley parents, refs, line judges, and other officials. The 250 capacity will also be in effect for the Tuesday game vs Divide County. Tuesday's game will be carried by BEK TV. We also are broadcasting our games through NFHS. For $10 a month you can get a subscription for every Pirate game, even those on the road.
We have started the free meals at Tioga Schools, and all meals, from August 31 to December 31 or when the money is gone, are free. Meals from August 20-August 28 will need to be paid for if your children don't qualify for free or reduced meals. Distance learning students that would like free breakfast and lunch need to call (701) 664-3441 to sign up. For more information, call Mrs. Eide at (701) 664-2333.
Due to Williams County being moved to the yellow category on Friday our maximum gym capacity allowed for Thursday's game vs Stanley is 250. This 250 includes players, stats and refs. Our plan during this time is to give tickets to each player's immediate family and also 2 tickets to each visiting player. We are going to be asking that junior high players and parents leave after your child's game so that everyone is able to attend their child's game. If we do have tickets left they will be distributed on a first come basis.
Pirates lost 0-52 to DLB tonight. Keep working..
Many schools have been posting about free meals for students. The USDA has re-started the Summer Program which means all students will eat for free. Tioga will participate with free breakfast and lunch for K-12 students. Details are unclear as to how far back we can go in giving free meals and how long the program will be in effect. Right now, it is due to expire in December or when the money runs out, whichever is first. It seems that now all meals for K-12 students are free so please share this with others. More information will be available when we receive it. Distance learning students will be able to participate starting on Tuesday, September 8. We ask that you call the school to get signed up, and we will run it as we did in the spring and summer. The time for pickup may change, and we will be giving out information next week about this. Right now, we are NOT serving any preschool or homeschooled children. Thank you. No school on Monday.
The football game at DLB will be played in Des Lacs. As of now there are no restrictions in place. They are encouraging social distancing and masks but masks are not required. Good luck Pirates!
The Lady Pirate's Volleyball team will have their home opener tonight against the Ray Jays. JH matches begin at 3:00 to be followed by C squad, JV, and Varsity matches. We do have a capacity of 500 people including players, coaches, officials, etc. in the gym. We ask fans for their cooperation in trying to maintain social distancing and general health standards. If you are ill, please stay home. If we need to make room for parents to be able to attend the JV/Varsity matches, those that were present to watch JH matches would be very supportive in exiting to allow the same for varsity parents. There will not be kitchen concessions served. The Letterpersons' pop, popcorn, and candy concessions will be open. The games will be available to watch via the NFHSNetwork. To watch online, please go to https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/ and search for Tioga High School. The match broadcast tonight will be split into to sessions with the links below.

The football field is in great shape and along with coaches and players, we are ready for a Monday Night Football double header with Stanley High School on Monday, August 31st. The JH game will begin at 5:00 as scheduled. There will not be a JV game. And the varsity game will begin sometime around 7:00-7:30 depending on when the JH game completes. The varsity players will not be able to work the JH game as they normally would so we may be looking for some help with the chains for the JH game. Maybe some JH football dads would like to help us out there? Both games will be broadcast on the NFHS network. To watch the games, please go to https://www.nfhsnetwork.com . In the search bar at the top of the page, search for Tioga High School - Tioga, ND. This will bring you to our dashboard where you will be able to find all events throughout the year. It is unclear right now if we will be able to forgo the subscription procedure as used last year. We all wish we were able to see both teams at full strength. To those players not able to participate, we are thinking about you and will continue to work for you! We know you are hurt and frustrated, and we will continue to fight to get a full season in for you to come back to! Go Pirates!

Number 2 is that other schools have different policies for attendance according to their gym sizes and school board decisions. As a heads up if the state goes into the "yellow" category attendance numbers will be dropped to 250. We will continue to update you with attendance policies throughout the upcoming weeks.
Central Parents/Guardians, Safety of all our students and staff are of paramount concern to the school district, and we take it very seriously. As we enter into this school year, we require your assistance to ensure the safety of all students. Please note the following and adhere to the procedures that are in place to protect the safety of students. Students may not be dropped off before 8:10am. Aides will be at doors. Once in the building students will go to their classroom. Breakfast will be a grab and go. We will not be having morning recess on the playground before school. When dropping off or picking up your child, make sure to park your vehicle and do not wait in the middle of the road. Best door to drop off your students because it is closest to their lockers: Door #1 for students in grades 5th-6th Door #2 for students in grades 3rd-4th Door #8 for students in Kindergarten and 2nd Door #7 for students in 1st grade The front of Central (Benson Street) is a drop off area only. You may not park where signs are located, just a drop-off. Do not make U-turns in front of Central During School Hours of 8:10am to 3:45pm. (This is the busiest time for students to be dropped off or picked up.) Parents/Guardians may not be in the building before school. With the new guidelines from the CDC we will only have staff/students in the building. Exceptions: you may come into the office area. Parents must sign in (if late) or sign out your child (if they must leave early). You are required to wait in the office area, until your child has walked to the office. We will not be letting parents/guardians/visitors eat at school this year. Students need to be picked up dismissal time which is 3:30pm. If you are not here by 3:45pm they will in the office. If you are going to change your child’s dismissal procedure you must contact the school before 3pm. Pick-up/dismissal procedure will stay the same: Bus students will get on busses. K-2 will be picked up on the playground. Parents please park on Main Street. Visit with teachers on other arrangements. Grades 3-4 will dismiss out door #2. Visit with teachers on other arrangements Grades 5-6 will dismiss out door #1. Visit with teachers on other arrangements. The wonderful Central staff and I feel honored to be a part of this school family with your children. We thank you in advance for your support and look forward an exceptional year.

Here is a link to the Daily Health Checklist. We ask that you please follow the guidance as we would like to see everyone be able to stay healthy and continue with the 2020-2021 school year as normal as possible. Thank you! https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/community/schools-childcare/Daily-Home-Screening-for-Students-Checklist-ACTIVE-rev5A.pdf
THS Students and Families! We are very excited to see you all tomorrow with the first day of the 2020-2021 school year! It has been too long since we have been "in session". I just want to provide some quick updates as to our re-start operations. First and foremost, the "Before School Daily Health Checklist" (questions to be asked at home before going to school) will likely be posted later today. Please be vigilant with questioning whether or not you should attend school. We know that we are going to face challenges with COVID and other health scenarios. We can not stop nor completely avoid those health situations. However, by not attending school when unhealthy, we can help prevent spreading any illness. If you are ill, please stay home. We have not been able to schedule an open house. This is especially trying for 7th grade and new students. We have had some major HVAC construction taking place and the hallways are just cleared. Our custodians have done a fantastic job in a limited time frame in getting the building ready!The plus side is with this HOT week, the AC has sure been nice! We are prepared to help those new to the building navigate tomorrow when they arrive, and it may seem a little overwhelming. Patience and grace will be on full display! If you have a student that needs to be acclimated to the building, we are open today and will allow those new students to find their lockers, classrooms, etc. As with everything this year, please practice distancing and enter and exit out of the main lobby. The current recommendation of CDC is to NOT conduct temp checks when entering the building. We are planning to start the year following those recommendations, however that may change and we would do temp checks if recommended. That being said, we are going to practice social distancing as much as possible. The doors to the school will not be open until 8:10, which is when teachers shall be on site. At 8:10, students may grab their grab and go breakfast in the cafeteria, place materials in lockers and proceed to their 1st period classes. Hallway and gym activities will not be allowed. Last year, we made a lot of progress on back pack limits. This year, we are encouraging you to use a backpack between classes to limit the amount of time spent in the hallways. ALL students should become very fluent in using Google Classroom and piratek12.org email addresses. These tools will be heavily relied upon in all classroom situations, whether in person or Distance Learning. Distance learners - keep watching and we will be gathering your needed materials to get to you! New students/returning students - if you need class schedules yet - we will get them. It may just require some patience in the morning! At the end of the day, all students are asked to bring any materials going home with them PRIOR to going to practice, etc. We would like to eliminate the re-entry traffic in the hallways and classrooms as daily disinfecting will take place. We will all learn a whole lot more about how this unusual start will progress tomorrow. There will be a lot of adjustments made and change will be welcome. I am excited to see you all and encourage you to ask questions. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions! See you tomorrow! Mr. Odegaard
The Tioga Schools had a staff member test positive for COVID-19 on Monday. Cleaning has since been completed, and the infected person is following North Dakota Health guidelines concerning quarantine and is not attending school now.

I am asking that only parents/guardians, along with student/s who attend Central come into the building. Also, you may not go into classrooms, you may walk the hallways so your child can see the building (especially our K and new students). Feel free to take a picture by their locker, by their classroom door and outside the building. Enter through door #1 and also exit door #1. Please practice social distancing and masks are recommended. Here is the schedule, so I can limit the amount of people in the building. If your last name starts with A-G your time is 12pm-12:45pm, H-K your time is 12:45-1:30pm, L-M your time is 1:30-2:15pm, N-S your time is 2:15-3:00 and T-Y your time is 3:00-3:45pm.

JH first football game is Monday, August 31st. Important!!!! Everyone must get a physical. NDHSAA says a physical must be done yearly in order to compete. In order to practice you must have a physical and a consent form signed in order to start practice. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL AUGUST TO SCHEDULE, BE PRO-ACTIVE AND GET THIS DONE BEFORE THE FIRST WEEK OF PRACTICE. Sports Physical: Monday August 3rd from 5-6:30. For the sports physical clinic you can call 701-664-3368 and choose option 1 to schedule, you do not need an appointment, but it is encouraged. The cost is $25 and paperwork must be completed prior to arrival with parents signatures, there are TWO places signatures are needed. Also, if anyone is having any symptoms or not feeling well they should not attend. We will be taking temperatures and doing a symptom questionnaire on everyone attending. Coach Schaffer—(Varsity) work: 664-3441 email: email@example.com
As we plan and prepare to open the 2020-2021 school year, we are excited to get our students back to doing some of the things they love to do! The NDHSAA has announced their plans to resume activities as well. For Tioga High School students, football practice will begin August 10th with the Junior High team starting their practice on August 17th. High school volleyball practice will begin August 17th with Junior High starting right around August 20th. Look for details from coaches specific to each sport soon. Sports physicals are required for all athletes prior to starting practice and Participation fees (activity tickets - $25) must be paid for all students involved in athletics, music, speech, and drama. You may have heard that the NDHSAA has allowed for the use of "Form B" to be used in response to COVID, however Tioga Public School policy will remain the same requiring all athletes to have a yearly sports physical. Health and safety needs should not be outdated and current medical and concussion information is valuable for all students. Athletes must have 9 practices prior to competition so scheduling those physicals prior to the first day of practice is beneficial. Physical forms are available at https://ndhsaa.com/files/NDHSAA_Physical_Form.pdf If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Mr. Odegaard.
Parents: Please take a minute to complete our short survey asking for your input as to HOW Tioga Schools will deliver student education starting on August 20. We are closing the survey on Thursday, July 23. We value your input-thanks for your time! PARENT - https://forms.gle/H92MV26ua8gaJrmf7
On Tuesday, July 14, Governor Burgum announced that local control, along with working with our local health unit, are criteria that will be used in deciding how we'll educate our students. Of course, this information can change at any time, depending on COVID. We will start working on a formal plan during the week of July 20. We will start with a short survey asking some very basic questions and asking if you would like to assist in this planning process in some way, if you plan to send your kids to the buildings, and other procedures depending on guidance for our area.. After very limited conversation, it is apparent that we want our kids in school in some way, shape, or form. HOW we are going to do that has not been determined yet. We know you are anxious, and August 20 is right around the corner. We will have more information soon! Thanks for your support and patience. Have a good weekend.

Last March, Governor Burgum closed schools for in-person instruction due to concerns about COVID-19. He directed schools to serve their students via distance learning “until further notice”. Educators have been in frequent contact with the ND Department of Public Instruction(DPI) and the Governor’s Office trying to find out what schools will be allowed to do in August. • At this time, we do not know if students will be allowed to return. • If students are allowed to return, will class-size caps and social distancing guidelines be in place? • If so, will that force us to limit the number of students who can attend school each day? • Will schools still have the authority to offer distance learning classes to our students who have been identified as high risk by a medical-professional? It is our hope that the Guidelines we need to follow will be released by mid-July; however, at an online meeting that was held today, DPI stated schools may not have guidance until the end of July. While the principals and I have been discussing potential scenarios, we need to wait until those guidelines are released. We will share the educational plan for this fall as soon as we know what our options are. We know how difficult this uncertainty is for many of you. It is frustrating for us, too! Rest assured that as soon as we have guidance from the state, we will communicate our plan. If you have specific questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Carolyn Eide, Superintendent, at (701) 664-2333. Thank you for your understanding-I'm afraid it is a new era.

Congratulations to Tioga High School Juniors Karter Longie and Addy Norgaard on receiving the I Dare You Award! The National Leadership Award is presented each year by the American Youth Foundation (AYF). The award was first offered in 1941 by the late William H. Danforth, who challenged young people to achieve their highest potential and to influence others through their lives of service. The award is inspired by the book, “I Dare You” which commends the balanced life of mental, physical, social, and spiritual development as the backbone of leadership. This award recognizes high school juniors who demonstrate personal integrity, lead balanced lives, and possess a willingness to assume responsibility. The recipients are given a personalized certificate, a copy of the book “I Dare You” and the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to attend the American Youth Foundation International Leadership Conference. Congrats Addy and Karter!

Hello THS students and families! We (just about) made it! We do still have school next week, but will transition more to an intervention/enrichment mode; cleaning up and completing what has been assigned to this point. Students should still be logging on and checking in to Advisory through Wednesday at least. New material may be posted, but nothing new as far as content academically. Thursday, May 21st and Friday May 22nd, we will have check in of school materials (to included Chromebooks AND Power cords) at both Central and the High School. Our plan is to have people available from 9:00-3:00 except 11:15-12:45 as to not interfere with lunch pickup at Central. HS students with items still in the locker rooms, this will be an opportunity to gather those as well. Look for more information to follow from Mrs. Eide concerning end of year plans. This is graduation weekend for some area schools. On behalf of Tioga High School, Congratulations to all area graduates! We are also beginning to prepare/setup for our Graduation on Sunday, May 24th. I have attached a picture just to give an idea of how it will look. Seniors, be watching your piratek12 emails for further details. Cap and Gown pickup and deposits - Jayme is planning to be at the school for seniors to pick those up ($40 deposit) on Wednesday from 9:00-11:00. Just a reminder to seniors and their families, if you are needing additional seating to the 6 persons per table, please contact me via phone or email so that bleacher seating (social distancing) can be prepared in advance as well. To all teachers, students, parents, and community members, "Thank You" for all of your cooperation, support, and assistance during the past 9 weeks! We have just about completed the 2019-2020 school year. Make sure to finish strong! Keep sailing! Land is in sight. Mr. Odegaard
A quick reminder-if you are unable to pick up lunch for even one day, or if you wish to be removed from the lunch program, call Tonya or the school at (701) 664-2333. The school will let Tonya know. We can't save food from one day to the next so it it ends up in the garbage. Thanks for your help.
The federal government has approved schools to continue serving lunch and breakfast to children from the ages of 1 to 18 through June 30, 2020. Tioga WILL continue to feed children through that date, including weekends. For more information or to sign up your children or remove them from our list, call (701) 664-2333. Thanks!

ELMER NESS SCHOLARSHIP EXTENDED DEADLINE The deadline for the Elmer Ness Scholarship has been extended to May 31st, 2020. If you missed the initial application deadline, now is the time to get your application in!!!

The Governor's Executive Order has been amended to allow graduation ceremony to be held using school facilities with proper social distancing, cleaning, and other safety precautions. Tioga Public Schools is moving forward with plans to hold graduation at Tioga High School on Sunday, May 24th at 2:30 pm as originally scheduled. Please note though, that in order to follow guidelines, graduation will be very different this year. Initial plans are to limit attendance to graduates and their immediate household family members only. Exceptions will be made to parents and direct siblings only who do not reside in the same household. Unfortunately, graduation will not be open to extended family members or the general public and those with underlying health conditions or over the age of 65 are strongly encouraged not to attend. Graduation will be live streamed for public viewing with further details to come. All ceremony details will be shared with seniors and their families as plans get finalized. The guidelines specifically address the fact that "if an outbreak of COVID-19 occurs in your area prior to your scheduled graduation event, the State Health Officer may suspend any in-person portion of the event to protect public health and safety". This appears, at this time, to be the only possibility to any change in our date. We are happy that we can move forward with a plan. We feel like we can offer the graduates an in-person graduation experience and have a traditional graduation ceremony. It will require cooperation in a lot of ways, but appears a much better option than other virtual or distant graduation plans. It will not be a perfect plan to meet the expectations of all, but we will be able to recognize the Class of 2020 and celebrate their achievements together! Keep Sailing! Land is in sight! Mr. Odegaard

Usually we have conversations about tornadoes at school in the spring and send things home with students. Here is just something to think about as we prepare for the summer storms and sometimes don't think about until it's too late. Tornado safety preparation tips Designate a safe room. This area can either be a storm cellar, a basement or a room on the lowest level of your home or building without any windows, like a closet. ... Put essentials in your safe room. ... Remove outdoor items. ... Reinforce your home. ... Contact your insurance agent.
Time to be careful while driving around town with a lot of students and adults riding bike. There are so many great reasons to ride your bike: It offers fun, freedom and exercise, and it's good for the environment. We want kids and families to ride their bikes as much as possible. Here are a few tips so that you'll be safe while you do so. The Hard Facts Properly-fitted helmets can reduce the risk of head injuries by at least 45 percent – yet less than half of children 14 and under usually wear a bike helmet. Top Tips Wear a properly-fitted helmet. It is the best way to prevent head injuries and death. Ride on the sidewalk when you can. If not, ride in the same direction as traffic as far on the right-hand side as possible. Use hand signals and follow the rules of the road. Be predictable by making sure you ride in a straight line and don’t swerve between cars. Wear bright colors and use lights, especially when riding at night and in the morning. Reflectors on your clothes and bike will help you be seen. Ride with your children. Stick together until you are comfortable that your kids are ready to ride on their own.

THS sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Here is the latest update from ACT. ACT Test Online at Home Coming Fall/Winter In response to uncertainty and school cancellations due to COVID-19, ACT announced it will offer a flexible schedule for summer 2020 test dates and test-at-home options for fall/winter 2020. As CDC and local guidelines for safety allow, ACT will offer its June and July national test dates as scheduled and will additionally provide makeup test dates for June and July. The makeup test date for the June 13 national test date will be June 20, and the makeup test date for the July 18 test date will be July 25. ACT will work with individual national test centers should they need to reschedule to the makeup test date and students will be notified in advance. Students may also make free test date changes from the June to the July national test date. In addition to the three previously planned fall test dates on September 12, October 24 and December 12, ACT will also offer a remote proctoring option for the ACT® test in late fall/early winter 2020, allowing students to take the test at their home on a computer. ACT will launch the test-at-home option as part of its national testing program. The fee waivers ACT provides to students from low-income homes will apply to the at-home testing option, and ACT is considering other ways to address access and equity issues
The NDHSAA Board of Directors voted to cancel the remaining 2020 NDHSAA Winter Postseason Basketball Tournaments, Spring Sports and Spring Fine Arts Contests.

Governor Burgum just announced schools will continue distance learning until the end of the school year. 15 more days in Tioga! Thank you, everyone, for your help and support! Keep sailing!
Hello THS students, parents, teachers, and families! Can you believe it is Friday, May 1st? TGIF, but May already? Wow! It has been 48 days since we have been in the building together for a day of school. For many of you, this has been great! For others, like me, this has been very difficult. My main hope is that everyone is staying healthy and the way the numbers look, Tioga has been very good. Hopeful it continues and thoughtful of those that have been directly impacted by COVID 19. I feel like I need to share some thoughts on distance education with you all. I have looked at it from the viewpoint of administration, a parent, and more closely this week as a teacher. As a building principal, my role has greatly changed, yet stayed the same. I have tried to continue to be here to support our students in learning and our teachers in teaching. I have tried to give reminders and suggestions for students of what they could and should be doing to continue their learning. I have tried to help with logistical issues as much as possible. For our teachers, I have stressed "relentless communication" and "flexibility". Some feel like there has been too much communication, specifically emails. Many others feel like there has not been enough communication, to which I agree. This separation has me recognizing exactly how much communication, both verbal and non-verbal, there is on a daily basis when school is in session, in a physical building. I believe that is the part that most of us are missing out on most right now. Being a principal of a distant school with no one there is HARD. Being a parent in a distance education setting for many is HARD. Not all are facing the same challenges with trying to help their child(ren) at home. Having two children schooling at my own home is challenging. We are fortunate that we have a strong connection with the school and some experience with it. Many parents do not have that. This is all new, and wasn't a request. For parents who are able to be still working (or now maybe returning to work), this is an extra challenge of trying to oversee education after returning home from work. For some parents, this has been a great experience. Lots of extra, special, time spent with children. For many teachers who didn't "sign up" for distance education, this is HARD. Sure, some have really embraced this opportunity and are doing well with it. Many have children of their own, same as other parents, but they present many different challenges too. For most teachers, the amount of time taken to prepare lessons, correct assignments, contact students and parents, and other tasks has greatly increased. There are some benefits as well but I think overall the challenges these teachers have worked hard to overcome has been stressful. Google classroom has been a great tool to use, but not our normal lifeline like it has quickly become. The one viewpoint I have not had, is as a student. In talking with students though, it appears we have students all over the map. Some are thriving while others are struggling to keep their head above water. This is HARD. Grades still matter. Hard work still pays off. Many things have been unfortunately missing this spring, but having the availability of earning an essential education is still present. I am going to challenge you all as high school students to have a laser focus for these next couple weeks of May. Many of you have gotten quite behind with your work. It is very important that we finish this experience strong. People care about you! We want you to be successful, short term and long term. As we prepare to hear the governor speak this afternoon, we anticipate he will be addressing K-12 education today. Not knowing what will come of that, we must be prepared to continue to work. Continue to seek help and guidance. Continue to embrace change and challenge. For some, it may be a fresh start. For others it may be a new challenge. Seek an opportunity to improve yourselves for you! Even though for many this is HARD, if we keep working together, we can make this work. Keep Sailing! Mr. Odegaard
SENIORS - this a reminder to turn in your questionnaire for the Senior Radio Spot Light. Please get it done ASAP and sent off.
Starting on Friday, we will provide meals for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday! Our federal government has allowed us to provide weekend meals! That is great news! Walkers and bike riders are going to have quite a bit to haul home. Another big THANKS to our cooks! You make a difference in our lives!
Attention K-12 Tioga Pirates, we are feeling lonely not being able to see your faces. So, we are going to have a Pirate Pride Parade on Thursday, April 30th starting at 1pm so we can see your smiles. We cannot throw candy, like a normal parade, but the smiles we will share and see on your face will be fantastic. We will make signs up and I'm sure some will decorate their vehicles. If you want to make a poster, we would love to see it. Also, dress up in your Tioga Pirate clothes. The Tioga Police department has created a Map that we will follow to go around town (map attached). TPD will also be in the Pirate Pride Parade along with the Tioga Fire Department. We do need you to practice social distancing. Do not congregate and have a big group, keep it to your immediate family and keep at least 6 feet apart. Please look at map and see what the nearest street to your house is.

7-12 Graders I miss the ENTIRE THS Student Body. I miss running into you in the hallway, mornings in the gym, and the random stops into my room. I set up a weekly meet time for anyone who wants to stop into my “room”. Check your piratek12.org for the information. K.Schaffer
Hello all! Mr. Odegaard here. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the beautiful weather. We are used to dealing with what we get with weather - and I have been impressed with how most of you have played the hand dealt with distance education. We will continue to do the best we can and provide opportunity. The Pirates will keep sailing one assignment, one class, one day at a time. I have been asked to join Jim Prather on The Talk of the Town on KTGO to talk a little about where we are at with distance education and the current status of the school tomorrow morning at 7:30 am. We appreciate the support KTGO-1090 has provided to area schools and communities this past year! I would not normally invite you to listen in via our social media outlets, however we are going to talk about an upcoming Sr. Spotlight segment and other current challenges we are facing. Jim suggested we post it here. Glad to provide a little publicity for KTGO as they continue to support our students! Today is also Administrative Professionals Day. I would like to say "Thank You" to Jayme and Steph! Ladies, you are very appreciated for the job you do organizing and keeping us running smoothly! As one of our staff members put it, "She could organize an ant farm and make it look easy." Thank you ladies and have a special day. As always, if there are any questions or if I can help in any way, please contact me at the High School or by email at Brodie.Odegaard@k12.nd.us.

Attention Juniors and Seniors that ordered rings from Jostens: The ring plant has been closed due to COVID-19. They hope to have the rings sent out to those that have paid by mid-May. Contact Mrs. Klabo with any questions.
ATTENTION ALL STUDENTS and Parents! While we understand things have drastically changed with our school year, it is important to note that school is still in session and learning is still taking place. Grades still matter. Tioga Public Schools is not taking the challenge lightly and we expect the same of our students. We have truly encouraged all faculty members to operate with a “grace” mentality, understanding the challenges many of you are facing and not wanting to add to any frustration. Hopefully your educational experience is still challenging you to learn and apply new knowledge, yet not consuming your time and mentality. For high school students, we are NOT in a pass/fail mode. We are still taking grades and no changes have taken place with our grading procedures. We will still be issuing letter grade percentages. You can still fail courses and credit recovery options would then come in to play. Student’s future success was vital in making this determination. We do not want any students to be punished academically by this distance learning experience, however engagement and accountability remain vital. Your courses are still credit bearing courses. You must continue to earn credits as required for graduation. Future educational and scholarship opportunities are dependent on maintaining an equitable grade system. Most of our courses are Full Year courses and your Quarter 4 grades will carry their normal weight in final grades. Depending on your learning experience, instructors have been encouraged to enter a minimum of two grades per week on PowerSchool. Parents can still access PowerSchool to follow student performance. That being said, it is our hope that instructors HAVE changed their normal expectations and operations. This is a great opportunity to remove some of the barriers classroom education inherently faces and open the doors for teachers to teach “how and what” they may have always wanted to. Hopefully they have been able to narrow the focus to fewer, more critical standards and are finding ways to keep FUN in fundamental education. If you feel you are needing more, contact your teachers as differentiated instruction is very available in distance settings. Students, please accept your parents/guardians and their support. If they would like access to your Google Classroom or other materials to help you, share any required login information with them. It’s really the same as that daily connection with your classroom teachers. Elementary students will still be graded on a rubric scoring system, same as before. Rubrics Grading Scale: 4 – Exceeds Standard 3 – Meets Standard 2 – Approaches Standard 1 – Below Standard. We know our 4th quarter scores will not show a true reflection score of what they know, but we feel we can still get the standards out to students and give them a score for their 4th quarter efforts. We understand that they may be getting help at home or less help at home, but this will help us to reflect on what we need to readdress next fall with our students. Continue to communicate with the classroom teacher if your child is struggling and we can adjust instruction to help your child during this time of distance learning. Parents/guardians, we thank you for all the support you have given to students and teachers alike! This has been difficult on some families, and embraced by others. If there is anything we can do to help, please contact the school.
Call for Yearbook Pictures Grades 7-12 With the last quarter of school taking place by way of distance learning, and our spring sports canceled, we are short on pictures for this years publication. We would love it if you could send pictures of your online learning, and COVID-19 living to be featured in the 2020 Yearbook. It will help us fill the pages left blank because of this pandemic. Please email your pictures to email@example.com with the subject line of: Yearbook Photos. Thank you in advance for your help. We look forward to seeing your pictures. - THS 2020 Yearbook Staff

Good afternoon THS families! I would like to take some time to give a few updates. The first of which being the most important one to me. 1. Have a fantastic weekend celebrating Easter! Rejoice! Please take the four day weekend to enjoy with family and celebrate the Easter holiday in your special way. School can wait. 2. Students - broken record alert- PLEASE make sure you are checking your GClassroom account, piratek12.org email, and PowerSchool daily. I know many of you do not like communicating via email. We do not have a whole lot of options right now that work as well as email. Also, you must check in to your Advisory class every day. Our attendance is being simplified by this one simple task. We are making a lot of corrections to attendance, but it would be able to be managed daily through Advisory check in. 3. Seniors and Senior parents - I feel for you all in this very unsure time. I appreciate those of you that have reached out to us at the school with thoughts and ideas - all great - of ways to celebrate the Class of 2020 while not being in the building. Each year, we struggle getting the "needed things" from graduates such as pictures, forms for the paper, cap and gown measurements, etc., and that is when we are physically able to see you everyday. Now it has new challenges! Several parents have reached out with thoughts. We too would like to help, but honestly, we are swamped and are requesting you as parents to take the lead here! I would love to be able to commit more time for the different plans and ideas I have heard. And then, honestly, I worry about what the expectations would be in the future. I am going to try to set up a Senior Class listserv so that you can all share information with each other and help each other plan jointly to recognize the Class of 2020. If you are a Senior class parent and do not wish to be included, please let me know by calling the school (701.664.3606). 4. Locker room materials - If you would like your items from the locker rooms, please contact me at the school. We will make arrangements. 5. My recommendation to the school board at their upcoming meeting will be to forgive the final test policy for the Spring 2020 semester. More updates will follow. We have learned that distance education provides many challenges, but also many opportunities for students, families, and teachers. We are doing a great job! It is (mostly) getting a little easier. Parents, THANK YOU for all you have done to help. Many of you have been ultra-supportive of your children and teachers. I have encouraged "relentless communication" to our staff. I encourage students and parents to do the same! Everyone has their own unique circumstances to deal with. While this is not an ideal situation, learning is still expected to take place. Students are still to be held accountable. Grades still matter. Failure and success are still options. For students not being very diligent in their studies, the school year can extend until June 30th if necessary. The path of least resistance is to take care of what is expected of you on a daily basis. I will leave you with a quote I heard again today; "You cannot recreate the school building environment in distance learning." Missing all of our students and wishing you all a Happy Easter! Mr. Odegaard Brodie.Odegaard@k12.nd.us 701.664.3606
How about a shout out for that kitchen crew today? THANK YOU very much ladies!
Central Parents, reminder that attendance is being taken daily by your classroom teacher. Students must check in daily with them. The State still mandates us to take attendance and it counts on your child's daily attendance. Let teacher know that they are doing their work daily, by giving them a quick text or have them login and do an assignment. It doesn't have to be just between 9am to 3pm, it might be they read a book at night, do a PE activity or an assignment at night. If you are having a tough time checking in daily contact classroom teacher or contact Mr. Schaffer 701-664-3441 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Prom and Graduation has, with good reason, been a often asked question. We know at this point that Prom will not be held on April 18th. We do plan to host a Prom for the 19-20 school year! We just cannot set a date without knowing when we will be able to be back in the building. If we can do it in May, we will. If it has to be pushed out into the summer, we will do that. Prom may have to be modified, but we will get something put together. GRADUATION - THS Class of 2020 is still scheduled for Graduation exercises on May, 24th. While we are hopeful this will happen, we may have to make alternate plans as we learn more about when we are able to get back to the building. Rest assured, similar to Prom, and more importantly, we will have a graduation ceremony. It too, may have to be slightly modified, but we will honor the Class of 2020. Keep Sailing!
In transitioning to extended learning, we understand there have been a lot of concerns. We would appreciate your feedback to help us improve. Please fill out the attached survey to help us grow. Thank you! https://forms.gle/u1yRQcy5U45k2oFbA

Just a reminder-The North Dakota Dept of Health is asking schools to send out a reminder about our responsibility as citizens. We've heard this dozens of times, but it bears repeating: It is critical for you to take preventive action for your health and for the community: *Wash your hands frequently with soap. No soap-use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content. *Avoid touching your T-zone (eyes, nose, mouth) *Practice social distancing. Avoid groups with more than 10 people. Use drive-though, pickup, or delivery. *Work from home when possible. *Stay home if you are sick. *Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash and wash your hands. No tissue-cough or sneeze in your elbow. *Clean and disinfect frequently touch objects and surfaces. *Stay away from individuals who are sick. Stay 6 feet away from others as much as possible. Please, please, please follow these recommendations for our community. Stay home. Stay well, and thank you.
Central Elementary is closing the playground effective immediately. Please do not send children to the playground, we cannot guarantee that they are germ-free, nor could we gatherings to ensure compliance with guidelines. We will have signs to stay off until further notice and hope this serves as a reminder to stick to outdoor activites that don't involve surfaces that can spread the virus. We still encourage our students to be active...Thanks

Good Morning Tioga High School! This is a lot different, but school is resuming session. Developing a daily routine is going to be a challenge during these strange times. Personal accountability and responsibility are at a new level. Make good decisions and we will be able to work our way through the bumps in the road. All students need to be logging in to their piratek12.org email addresses and accepting the invites to classes that may have been added to Classroom. Your teachers are to be contacting you by tomorrow. Many of them have materials posted for you already. Communication is going to be vital for your success. Talk to your teachers! Let them know if you have multiple classes over-scheduling each other. I would rather not move to using our master schedule so that all students would be occupied from 8:40-3:35, but we may have to go to a modified master schedule if we are not able to work together. We've got this! Don't get frustrated by the challenge. Embrace change. This is new for everybody, including our staff. Be flexible. Get up! Get going! Keep Sailing! Mr. Odegaard Brodie.Odegaard@k12.nd.us Bodegaard@piratek12.org 701.664.3606
Pickup went very well. Thank you to all those that came. *Buses are running now with deliveries. This is much earlier than we had planned but the day has gone very smooth and everything is ready! Please be looking for your afternoon bus route delivery!
Band students: If you need reeds or band supplies to last a while, I am at Tioga High School today during pickup. Percussionists will need sticks and a practice pad at home. Mrs. Lewis
Daily Morning Pledge with Mr. Schaffer. Here is a link to my direct school webpage: http://tiogand.apptegy.us/elementary-principal--3 When you scroll down you will see a link to click for Pledge.
A 5:00 view of what's been happening the last couple of days. It's all ready to go! Each student will be getting a CashWise tote with most of their supplies. These can then be reused to support CashWise as they have been there to support us. "Come and get it" and "we will deliver" tomorrow. Thanks to all of the staff members that helped.
Central Parents: teachers/aides/cooks/janitors/secretaries have been working hard the last few days as we prepare for distance learning. Communication will be a big key to our success for student learning during our last quarter. Teachers will be reaching out to you, if they haven't already, by Friday, March 27th on expectations. I will be available for any questions or concerns. You can email me email@example.com or call 701-664-3441 and I will get the message. Do not hesitate to contact me...."Work like a Captain and Play Like a Pirate!" Thanks...
Central Parents, we will have pick up tomorrow (Wednesday, March 25th, 2020) starting at 10am. We will have you pick up at Door # 9 or #10, these doors are located on the gym (Benson street). We will have aides by the door and they will get your child’s things and bring to you. If you have multiple children, you can pick up at one time. We are asking parents to pick up at the following times: grades k-1 @ 10-11am, grades 2-3 at 11am-12pm, and grades 4-6 at 12-1pm. Please practice social distancing while waiting outside the building. We will also have tables located outside with lost and found items, what is not picked up will be washed and donated. We will have boxes/totes by door #1 for library books, bookmobile books, rec wrestling singlets, basketball practice jersey/shorts/game jersey to be dropped off. If you are a bus student, we will have bus drivers drive their routes and drop off items. You will also be able to give bus drivers library books, bookmobile books, wrestling singlets and basketball jerseys/shorts/practice jerseys to bring back. If bus parents plan to pick up their student’s items, please let bus drivers know. If you are not able to pick up items please contact your classroom teacher or the school, so we can make arrangements. Teachers will be making contact to you about expectations by Friday, March 27th, if they haven’t already.
THS 7-12 Students: I will post pics later, but you should see our cafeteria right now! Thanks to a great crew, all of your lockers have been cleaned out (which will make that process easier for everyone later hopefully). We are prepared for pickup tomorrow (10-11 for grades 11 & 12, 11-12 for grades 9 & 10, and 12-1:00 for grades 7 & 8) and afternoon bus route delivery. Those time frames will help us, but come when available between 10:00-1:00 if able please. Textbooks, FCS projects, Art projects, Ag projects, band instruments; it seems like everything is leaving but the kitchen sink. It is really weird. But expect a load when you show up. Please plan to pull up parallel to the curb out the main entrance (similar to bus loading) and we will plan to deliver your materials to you in your vehicles, one, two, or three at a time. If a line forms, we will extend that to the west parking lot (out the cafeteria doors). You will not be able to enter the building. Let us offer curbside delivery please. We have probably over-packed supplies for many of you but trust that you will return materials to the school as check-in is needed - hopefully when we are back in school in the building. You may be missing some materials, but everything we have from your lockers, classrooms, etc. that we know of is packed. If you are missing materials, check what you had brought home Friday, March 13th, in backpacks, vehicles, etc. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE FOR CHROMEBOOKS AND CHARGE CABLES! We packed what we could find. If a Chromebook comes home with no charger, check your backpack, etc. to make sure that you do not have it. If you need something, call me at the school (664-3606) starting on THURSDAY, and we will try to make arrangements to get things to you. There is value in making sure you keep track of your charge cords as well. Please make an attempt to do so. We may be running very low on charge cables as several have been misplaced, etc. If you have extra materials to return, bring them with and drop them off. We have NOT packed up any materials from the PE locker rooms at this time. As we learn more about how long we may be out of the building, we will look to do a lockerroom pickup as well, but would like you involved in that process. If something essential is needed, call on THURSDAY and we will try to work through that. Please be checking your piratek12.org emails as well as your k12.nd.us accounts. Your teaching staff has done a tremendous job on short notice in preparation to continue with distance education! You have messages waiting in Google Classroom as well as in Teams. Use what formats you have been using in classes, and look for announcements from your teachers on what may have changed. Many of your classes are already in the mode for a soft rollout and you should be reached by all teachers by Friday. Full scale learning has a hard deadline of April 1st. Missing you all and hoping you are doing your part! If anyone is looking for a chat, firstname.lastname@example.org is my main school email address, but you will find me in many of your Google Classrooms now as well! Stay well! Pirates thrive in sailing uncharted waters! Mr. Odegaard
Parents/Guardians For K-6 For classroom counseling lessons, I am going to be utilizing the Seesaw app for grades K-6.

If no one is able to receive those items, they will be taken back to the schools and you can contact the school the next day to make arrangements to come and pick them up.

At the end of the season, rescheduling options are very limited. We appreciate tour understanding.

Activities taking place in the Tioga High School Gymnasium are now able to be livestreamed! We have partnered with the NFHSNetwork to be able to broadcast our activities to those unable to attend activities in person. Purchasing a subscription to the NFHSNetwork will allow for unlimited access to not only our home activities, but also for thousands of high school sporting events around the United States. Other area schools are also joining the NFHSNetwork which will make “attending” some of those out of town activities a little easier. For those who are “snowbirding”, you can still stay caught up with Pirate and Firestorm athletics. Let those relatives out of town know there is now an option for watching from long distances. We have the Pixellot camera system installed in our Gym and we were able to run a test at last night’s Girls’ Basketball game vs. Divide County. Not only was it a big win for the Lady Pirates on the court, but the NFHSNetwork broadcast of the game was a success! There will also be a system installed at the football field for football games in the fall. It is unclear how the automatic camera system will operate with track and field events. To follow the Pirates or for out of town fans unable to follow your teams to Tioga, * head to https://www.nfhsnetwork.com . * In the search bar at the top of the page, search for: Tioga High School – Tioga, ND. * Click the subscribe button in the top right corner. There is a monthly subscription fee of $10.99 or an annual fee option. Athletes, broadcasts should eventually be tied to Hudl accounts. Otherwise, home games should also be available On Demand now as well. Good Luck Pirates!

We had peculiar smell at Central today. So to be on the safe side we evacuated, had MDU check it out and found out it was nothing. We believe it was an odor from outside the building that got into our building through our fresh air exchange on the roof. Students received an extra extended recess today. Any questions call Mr. Schaffer at Central. Thanks
Safety of all our students, parents, community and staff are of paramount concern to the school district, and we take it very seriously. We require your assistance to ensure the safety of all students and community. Please note the following and adhere to the procedures that are in place to protect the safety of students. When dropping off or picking up your child, make sure to park your vehicle and do not wait in the middle of the road. This is a big problem in the mornings in front of Central. During Pick up time on Main Street, we will have an Aide help on the crosswalk after school. Please do not park in the crosswalk and please use the crosswalk. It is tough for vehicles to see between vehicles when students/parents walk across the street. Reminder you can drop off from Main street to the playground. We have aides on the playground starting at 8am. Do not make U-turns in front of Central During School Hours of 8:00am to 3:45pm. (This is the busiest time for students to be dropped off or picked up.) In Front of Central on Benson Street, we will have no parking from 8am-9am and again from 3pm-4pm. This means you can only drop off or immediately pick up during these times directly in front of Central. We will have signs out to help. If you need to come into Central in the morning, please park on the side streets or over by the playground side on Main Street. . If you have any questions please give me a call 701-664-3441, email email@example.com or stop in to visit.
Central School Picture Info!! We have not received pictures back yet and they are not sure when they will ship! So retake day is postponed. Once we get the pictures we will schedule retakes. If you have any questions please call Lifetouch at 1-701-293-6356. Thank You!

Tuesday, October 15th. 7:00 in Stanley for their Senior Night. This actually replaces the game from earlier in the season. Go Pirates!
Weather Changes! The Varsity football game with Kenmare this evening is on as scheduled! Kickoff at 7:00. KTGO 1090 AM, 92.7 FM will be there to broadcast if you are unable to make it. It can be streamed at BakkenBeacon.com or by downloading their app as well. The NWC Varsity volleyball tournament scheduled for tomorrow in Stanley has been POSTPONED with the make up date of Oct. 19th. There are 15 teams in this tournament and several of them are likely looking at travel difficulties tomorrow. We are aware that the makeup date is over a long weekend and other plans are likely in place for players, coaches, officials, and fans. Rescheduling a tournament involving 15 teams at this time of year is extremely difficult and personal plans may not be able to be changed. Regardless, the Pirates will be well represented and there to compete! Go Pirates! (Go AWAY storms!)
Tasha Schuh was scheduled to speak this week in North Dakota at Williston, Crosby, Tioga, Mandan, and Bismarck. Due to incoming winter weather Tasha has chosen to postpone her presentations this week in North Dakota. I am working with Crosby, Williston, and Tasha's husband/manager Doug in securing a new date for Tasha to present. Tasha is a highly sought after speaker so the soonest date for rescheduling will be in April. Together with Williston and Crosby we will nail down a day during the week of April 20th, 2020. The day we choose will come at a later time as all three of our schools let our calendars evolve into Spring. As soon as I know the exact day I will post it to our school social media. Thank you and have a great day!
Thanks to the THS Student Council and the assistance of the Bank of Tioga we have the privilege of hosting speaker Tasha Schuh this Thursday, October 10th at Tioga High School beginning at 1:00 p.m. Tasha focuses on who is in “your pit crew” because she believes that we all need a team to surround us and support us to be successful in our race of life. We can’t do life alone. She also uses the acronym PATH which focuses on four things that have helped her in her race: 1. Purpose 2. Attitude 3. Team 4. Hope Tasha’s story of tragedy, transformation, and triumph inspires students to know, no matter how difficult things can get, there is hope. If you would like to learn more about Tasha, and her story and message, her website is: www.tashaschuh.com.
