Breakfast is for Everyone

  Breakfast is served at school starting at 7:40 AM each morning and runs through 8:10 AM. If your child is a walker or is dropped off, they may arrive at the lunchroom at 7:40 AM to get their day started off right. This time will allow them to get breakfast eaten and arrive to class on time.

Conference Art Fair

  The Conference Art Fair will be held in Essex on March 30th-April 1st. Public viewing will be held on Saturday, March 30th, 6:00-8:00 PM, Sunday, March 31st, 1:00-3:00 PM, and Monday, April 1st, 10:00 AM-1:00 PM. Please come out and see what our students have accomplished.

Flood Donations

  Due to recent flooding in Hamburg, IA, Stanton High School students Easton Hultman, Luke Brockshus, and Shelby Brockshus thought this would be a good opportunity for Stanton Schools and the community to come together and donate much-needed items to the Hamburg Community.

  If you would like to contribute here is a list of items that are in high need: Clean up items, paper products, personal hygiene items, non-perishable food items, and cash donations or gift cards. Each class will have a box outside of their homeroom teachers' classroom to put your donations in. Donations will be accepted through Friday, April 5th. This group of students is NOT taking clothes at this time.

  This is going to be a very difficult time for many Southwest Iowa communities. We think it is very important to reach out a helping hand in any way that we can. Please join Easton, Luke, and Shelby in giving your support to the Hamburg community.

Thank you, everyone, and let's show Southwest Iowa how much we care!

Toy Drive for Flood Victims!
  Stanton Student Council will be partnering with the East Mills Student Council and the Healthy Initiative Grant Group 5210 to collect toys for the kids that were affected by the floods. We will have drop off locations at both the Stanton High School and Stanton Elementary School offices.

  We will be accepting new and gently-used toys and baby items. All items must be clean and in working order. We want to make this an amazing event for these kids that have lost so much!

  Start your spring cleaning early! We need dolls, stuffed animals, books, puzzles, bikes, Legos, games, baby equipment, and so much more! We will be collecting items through Friday, April 5th.
