Schkool Lunch with apple

School Lunch:


We love to have guests eat lunch with us! It is $2.70/Adult and $1.90/Child. Tippecanoe School Corporation Policy does not allow us to charge a guest lunch on a students account. We accept cash or checks. Please be aware, that we are not allowed to give change back, so the correct amount is appreciated.

Thanks so much! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office at 765-471-9321


Miss Sprunger's 2nd Grade Class:


Tuesday morning our class worked together to make 23 dog and cat beds to donate to Natalie's Second Chance and to the Almost Home Humane Society. A retired teacher, Mrs. Peters, wrote a grant to get materials to make these beds. Upon completing the beds, each child received a t-shirt to keep from the company that granted us the money. The company,Thrivent Financial, motto is live generously. It was printed on the t-shirt as a reminder that kindness and generosity help the world be a better place. Thanks to the volunteers Marge Sprunger, Jenni Farrand, Morgan Farrand, and Nancy Peters for helping us with this project.

Wea Ridge Run Club


The 80+ members of the Wea Ridge Run Club are quickly approaching 3,000 total miles with 35-40 joining us each day that we meet. Our Wiinter Wolf program is well under way with 4 already meeting their goal of 25 miles and many on their way. Meeting their goal will entitle them to purchase this year's Winter Wolf shirt. The online store is open again until this Friday for those who are interested. Like the Wea Ridge Run Club on Facebook to keep up with us if you can. Thanks again to Mrs. Wright & Mrs. Shively for their assistance. Keep on running Wolf Pack! So, so proud of these 4th & 5th graders

At this time, some of our playground equipment is not safe for our children to play on.  We have put warning signs up and have taped off the equipment.  The maintenance department is working to make the playground safe for the children.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
