Individual Speech Contest

    The Stanton High School speech students traveled to Griswold High School for District Individual Speech Contest Saturday, February 24th. It was a great day of competition! We had two students receive a 2 rating: Kaitlyn Bruce in Prose and Ryan Volquartsen in Improv and Review. The following students received a 1 rating and will advance to State Individual Speech Contest at Nevada High School on March 10th: Noah Kammerer in Improv, Sam Lindgren in Poetry, Nick Mueller in Radio News, and Alyssa Resh in Poetry. Best of luck at state! We also want to thank our parents, school, and community for the great support of the speech program! 

All School Play

  The all school play will be March 2nd at 7:00 PM. This year's play is the Bachelor King by Martin A. Follose. "Produced by special arrangements with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colorado". Chaos and hilarity ensue in this hysterical spoof of several popular reality TV shows! When poor King Evian uses his last dying words to pass royal succession not to greedy Prince Daft but to Yokel, a foolish hillbilly, everyone agrees Yokel needs a wife to help him run the kingdom. Of course, Yokel has other problems to attend. Will Yokel find his true love and save his kingdom from ruin?

Elementary Musical
  Stanton’s K-3rd grade bugs have heard there is a picnic and assume they are invited. The Lady Bugs are in charge of proper etiquette. The Army Ants are in charge of security. The Fireflies will light the way, and the Caterpillars are ready to show how bugs can change. Stink bug, on the other hand, is an unwanted guest. All the bugs are

trying to figure out how to tell Stink Bug he is unwelcome. He of course will spoil the tasty event because of his smell. Stink Bug is very sad because of this. Can the K-3rd grade bugs be kind and find a way to allow Stink Bug to attend the picnic? Come attend the K-3rd grade performance of the musical “Bugz” on Friday, March 9th, at 7:00 PM and find out!

  Life is grand for Stanton’s 4th-6th grade students. They have all the technology in the world to keep them occupied until a massive electromagnetic attack from outer space jams all their technology. There is no cellphones, no laptops… NO FUN! The kids are in panic and don’t know what to do until Grandma and Grandpa arrive to introduce them to a day filled with adventure, music, and imagination….without fancy gadgets! Come see Stanton’s 4th-6th grade students perform the musical “A Kid’s Life” on Friday, March 9th, at 7:00 PM. They will be performing after the K-3rd grade performance of the musical “Bugz.” Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students.




  The Vikings battled back after the slow start in the District Championship game but could not get over the hump and got beat by St. Albert, 60-53. The Vikes came out the 2nd half with more intensity and were able to get right back into the game. We are proud of the team and the season. Winning 21 games is always a great accomplishment. Winning the regular season and conference tourney were exciting.  We hope everyone enjoyed watching the team and sharing in the success of the Vikings for the 17-18 season. The 4 seniors had a lot of success in junior varsity and varsity action the last 4 seasons.  Vikes for Life!!

Community Survey

  Stanton area residents please help the community with a survey to determine the need and the possibility of a grocery delivery system for Stanton.
Click on the below link to fill out survey

  Shopping online for groceries allows people to save time and money. More and more grocers are now offering grocery delivery, too, adding even more convenience. In many communities, grocery lockers are being used for these deliveries. The grocer simply delivers the products on a specified date, and the consumer picks them up in a locker. Consumers can order the full range of goods: Bakery goods, fresh produce, pantry staples, household and laundry supplies, frozen items, health and beauty products, and even items for pets.  The placement of grocery lockers in Stanton is being explored as part of the creative placemaking effort.
