ONE10 Kindness Continues

It is so great to see how our ONE10 staff and students continue to show kindness and true care for each other during tough challenges.

Throughout this past couple of years, we have experienced some people with strong opinions who don’t agree with how we run our school and have shown frustrations. What I continue to see is how our ONE10 students and staff do not waiver on their commitment to creating a wonderful, caring, and compassionate school community.   I want to thank all who have shown such great kindness and appreciation after I announced my retirement.  ONE10 truly is a special place and it is because of YOU.  Thanks again for your kindness and your incredible passion for taking care of kids.  WE Are ONE10!!


Seeing Better Days with less Positive Covid Cases Reported at ONE10

We have seen a huge drop in our positive cases of Covid reported at ONE10 over the past two weeks. This is great news for the health and safety of our students and staff. It really improves our ability to educate students somewhat as we did before the pandemic.  When we had a high percentage of students and staff out due to illness, it really put stress on all we do for kids.  Having the Covid numbers decreasing helps us all deliver the ONE10 way.  


The weekly trends from January until February 11th are as follows;  135, 165, 137, 70, 24, 19.  We have experienced the following daily trend over the past 7 days;  10-(S, S, M), 1, 6, 1, 1.  This rapid slow down in Covid means we may have seen the worst of it and there is the hope of it becoming an endemic virus. Thanks to all that have helped by doing their part to slow down this spread.


Reminder….Polar Plunge is Scheduled for Lake Waconia on February 12th 

ISD ONE10 has had great participation in the Polar Plunge for almost a decade.  There is a MN Polar Plunge site at Lake Waconia. We have high hopes that this will be our biggest Polar Plunge year yet at ONE10.  Anyone wanting to plunge, there is still time to create or join a team 

The money raised from Polar Plunge supports the Unified Champion Schools program at ONE10, Waconia Inclusive Playground and the MN Special Olympics.  

Plunge Date: Saturday, February 12th

Where: Lake Waconia Regional Park

Polar Plunge Link:

 ONE10 has been a leader statewide for raising funds through Polar Plunge. It would be so cool to exceed our money raising record and be the top school district in the state, once again.  This will be my ninth year plunging for this cause and I am so proud to help with such a great cause.

A few seconds of being cold is a small price to pay to help provide inclusive programming in the district!  Please feel free to sign up or donate.  Thanks!  WE Are ONE10!!


Enjoy the Weekend and a Great Polar Plunge!!!
