OK, so I guess spring is not quite knocking on the door :)

I know last week I was talking about spring being right around the corner.  I guess I missed it by a couple of weeks.  If you are like most Minnesotans, you can’t wait for warmer weather.

I know I'm ready for spring to come.  A big thanks to those coaching outdoor sports for keeping athletes motivated during subpar weather.  As we all prepare for the actual spring to arrive, again, I want to thank all of our ONE10 staff for their wonderful work in keeping students focused in the classroom and planning fantastic experiences!!

Thanks to ALL….WE Are ONE10!!

Lots of events and great experiences happening

  • Our high school students in grades 9-11 took the ACT test on Tuesday.  The ACT is one measurement of the quality of education that we provide at ONE10.  Thanks to all the teachers and staff who prepared our students over the years to achieve.  Students in grades 9 - 10 took the Pre-ACT while the students in grade 11 took the actual ACT.  Composite scores will be released later this year.

  • Waconia High School hosted a Career Fair on Friday.  Our ONE10 high school students were able to explore over 75 business opportunities.  We are grateful for the wonderful partnerships we have with so many businesses.  People are willing to take time out of their workday to talk with students and inspire them. If you get a chance, thank the local businesses that were at the WHS Career Fair.  Thank you to Waconia Chamber of Commerce president Christine Fenner and all who made this event possible.  

  • The Waconia Chamber Business Expo is tomorrow (4/9/22) in the high school gym from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm. Admission is free. 

  • This week we welcomed Kristen Hoheisel. She is the finance consultant from SchooliQ that ISD 110 contracted with to provide financial services to our school district.  Kristen will be in the district two days a week through June.  We are thankful to have this support.

  • The annual Weather Awareness Week and the yearly Tornado Drill were held this week.

  • Friday and Saturday the RoboCats are competing at the First Robotics Competition at the University of Minnesota.  Good Luck to the RoboCats!!  

  • For those interested, the Dancing with the Stars competition is happening in Glencoe this Saturday.  Good Luck to Audra Lehrke and Rupert Lawson!!


The Annual ONE10 Student, Staff, and Parent Survey is being conducted

Ever since we developed the ONE10 Strategic Roadmap four years ago we have conducted a yearly survey to get data from students in grades 4-12, all staff members, and parents.  The survey is designed to receive feedback from the Desired Daily Experiences that were developed by students, staff, and parents during the Classroom to the Boardroom strategic planning process conducted in the spring of 2018.  Expect to have the opportunity to complete this annual survey in the upcoming weeks.  The data received helps with strategic planning at the building and district level in updating the ONE10 Operational Plan.  Thanks for your feedback and participation.
