Meningococcal Vaccine Secondary School Requirement
The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), Bureau of Immunization, has completed the administrative rule making process to require meningococcal (A, C W, Y) vaccine for students enrolling in 7th and 12th grades. The administrative rule change was effective January 11, 2017, and will be implemented at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. The Immunization Program has developed a variety of materials regarding the new requirement. The following resources are available on the Immunization Program’s webpage.
  For the 2017-2018 school year, and all future school years, all students entering into 7th grade and born after September 15, 2004, will need proof of one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine. All students entering into 12th grade and born after September 15, 1999, will need proof of two doses of meningococcal vaccine; or one dose if received when the student was 16 years of age or older.
  Adolescents are likely the main source of transmission for meningococcal disease. The new requirement will better protect students during their school years. Immunizations also help protect others within the home, in the community, and at school. About 10-15% of people with the meningococcal disease die even with appropriate treatment. Of those who recover, up to 20% suffer from serious after-effects, such as permanent hearing loss, limb loss, or brain damage. Meningococcal vaccines are very safe and effective at preventing meningococcal disease.
  There will be no grace/extension period for those students whohave not received their first dose of the meningococcal vaccine. All 7th grade students born after September 15, 2004, will need to submit proof of the vaccination before enrolling in school. All 12th grade students born after September 15, 1999, will need to show proof of two doses; or 1 dose if received when the student was 16 years of age or older.
  If you have any questions about the new meningococcal requirement, please contact the school.

An Undefeated Season:  A mix of talent and character that equated to 11-0!

  The 2016-2107 Stanton Boys JV Basketball team took the court 11 times this season, and 11 times they came away with a victory. The 14 players that contributed day in and day out all deserve the title “Undefeated Team”. While some contributed more than others in the games-it takes dedication, teamwork and the willingness to sacrifice for a team to not suffer a loss during an entire season. The season began with many morning practices, returning in the afternoon to practice with the Varsity and thus contribute all they could to the Varsity’s success. That is dedication worthy of a record of 11-0. The JV Vikings were led by freshman Tyler Peterson with 10.7 points per game along with Keygan Day adding 8.0 ppg and Easton Hultman with 6.5 ppg. Juniors Noah Kammerer and Tanner Anderson added valuable leadership and experience during games and in practice; Noah with knowledge of multiple positions and Tanner battling on the interior against taller players all year. Sophomore Thomas Bates improved all season coming on late to score 19 points in the final two games and brought a toughness off the bench to lift the Vikings to two tough wins. Freshman Wyatt Sederburg was a valuable ball handler and hit from three point range on many occasions in key situations. Sophomores Luke Brockshus, Logan Herbert, Andrew Hammargren, Trey Whitman and Freshmen Cody Bolton and Jacob Helberg provided competition during all practices (morning and afternoon) and developed their skills all season and will play valuable roles in the years to come. These players embodied the true meaning of a “team player” by supporting their teammates and cheering them on during a very successful season. As a coach these are the type of kids I enjoy seeing develop from a beginner level on up. Newcomer, Senior Donovan Rocha, played 7 games with the JV. This was his first year of playing organized basketball.  Donovan contributed with his natural athleticism and grew his knowledge of the game all season. 

  Undefeated seasons are not that common. The pressure of keeping the streak alive is an added distraction during games with tough opponents and we were able to overcome both. While some say it’s just JV-I say it’s my team and my kids and I am very proud of each of them. They all contributed every day and more than the wins I enjoyed getting to know them and learn more about them as young men. To my players: “Thank you for a great and fun season, the wins where just a bonus”-your coach, Dan Stoakes.

Viqueen Basketball

  Stanton Viqueen's ended their season with a loss in the Regional 8 first round. Bedford 45 Stanton 36.

  Stanton struggled shooting the ball in the second half as Bedford went on a 25-9 run to end the game. We got good looks and had several shots go half way down and rim out.  The cold outside shooting did not allow things to open up inside. In the end we had a great season, one that nobody wanted to see end, the foundation the seniors left is one that future teams can build off of. Stanton finishes the season at 16-6.
