Dear Families: You can help generate state aid for your school by completing the Application for Educational Benefits or the Alternate Application for Educational Benefits and returning it to your school. Some schools collect income data through a web-based collection system which replaces the paper forms. These are household income statements; only one application is needed per household but each district or charter school in which students in the household are enrolled would need a copy. Students in households that meet the free or reduced price meal income guidelines will generate compensatory revenue for their school. Schools must use compensatory revenue to meet the needs of students who are behind their peers, such as remedial instruction, instructional materials including digital learning and technology, bilingual programs and additional teachers and teacher aides. These applications may also make teachers in your school eligible for the federal Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program if they have outstanding college loans. However, the household must complete and return the forms, or complete the online form, no later than December 15 so the school can calculate eligibility and report to MDE. This will not impact your students’ eligibility to receive free meals during the 2020-21 school year.

Greetings from Food Service. Although your children are receiving free meals through USDA until December 31, 2020 or until funds run out, an application for Educational Benefits is still needed to ensure a smooth transition after that funding is depleted. PLEASE fill out an application and return to the School ASAP. These applications are not just used to qualify for Free or Reduced priced meals, but also helps with funding for our school for many other programs. Even if you do not qualify, your application helps our school tremendously! Question? Call Wendy 218-862-4615.

Hey Folks! We're kicking off our annual Fall Softener Salt Fundraiser! To order salt, speak with one of the choir students, or order from Heather Thormodson at hthormodson@hotmail.com. Orders are due Friday, October 9, 2020. Checks should be made out to Music Makers. An organized pick-up will be held at the gravel parking lot south of the school’s front entrance. Customers will remain in their vehicles in a line while students & parents/guardians load salt into vehicles with face mask coverings. Order quantities of 2 or more pallets (63 bags/pallet) can be delivered directly to your location! We are encouraging folks this year to purchase a 12 month supply which is different than in year’s past. As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected the supply chain.

What a great week for these 6 Battle Lake FFA members who proudly and professionally represented not only our local FFA chapter, but our entire school and community. They all have bright futures ahead of them; whether agricultural or not, we couldn’t be more proud! #BattlerPride

Members participating were able to go on ag tours and learn about the different aspects of the agriculture industry before heading to the World’s Toughest Rodeo on Wednesday evening. The members are looking forward to a great day of learning how to become better FFA members and advocates of agriculture as we head to the first general season this morning. After, the members will be able to attend the career fair and expo and learn all about their opportunities through agriculture. Members attending this year are: Tessa Kortlever, Riley Leabo, Kate Johansen, TJ Underhill, Cian Buehler, and Emmie Lundquist chaperoned by advisor Ms. Traci Block.
