Parents and current 6th, 7th & 8th grade students: Unfortunately the JH school sponsored baseball and softball seasons are cancelled for this year per the Iowa Department of Education directive regarding summer sports. Current 8th grade students are able to play high school baseball/softball. Students should have received an email from Mr. Bruns in regard to playing JV/Varsity this summer. Please contact Mr. Bruns ASAP if you or your child has not done so already if he/she plans on playing high school ball. The season will begin on Monday, June 1, 2020. 6th/7th grade students can check with the Calamus Wheatland youth ball association to inquire if there are teams available for that age group. Thank you, Mr. Michael Bruns

Updated School Closure Notice 4/17/2020 Many of you have already heard that Governor Reynolds announced in her press conference this morning that schools will continue to be closed through the end of the school year. Calamus/Wheatland will continue with voluntary educational opportunities until the scheduled end of the year. As school districts receive more guidance, we will continue to update our families and staff. Stay Safe! Lonnie Luepker
There have been questions about Driver Education at CW starting after school ends in May. Please be patient as the AEA is working on how to deliver the programming. In the next few weeks the AEA rep will be contacting all families that have registered. Thanks---Mr. Luepker
Upon approval of our voluntary learning opportunities through the Dept. of Education the days that have been missed count as school days & will not need to be made up. Currently student last day of school is scheduled for 5/27/20 & last day for teaching staff is 5/28/20.
HS parents/students: On-line college courses that students have been taking this semester continue to be taught and are being graded. These are different than concurrent courses taught by our instructors. Questions? Contact Mr. LeBeau & Mrs. O'Donnell.
Grab-N-Go meals can be picked up tomorrow, Wed, Apr 15 & Fri, April 17 this week. The meals include lunches for Wednesday, Thursday & Friday & breakfasts for Thursday, Friday & Monday. If you would like to be added or removed from the list, please contact the high school.
Seniors-your caps and gowns are in. You may pick them up in the high school office anytime this week along with any additional items you ordered (please call first). Rest assured, the District intends to hold a Commencement Ceremony, it may not be held on its originally scheduled date but will be held sometime.
Credit Recovery courses: If you are enrolled in a credit recovery course in grades 9-12, realize that these courses will continue with Mrs. Simmons and will continue to be graded. Please contact Mrs. Simmons with any questions.
Concurrent enrollment courses for high school students through Clinton, Scott and Kirkwood Community College will continue and are graded. There are multiple options for grades when it pertains to college credit (traditional graded, pass/fail, withdrawal, etc). I encourage you to contact Mr. LeBeau and Mrs. O'Donnell to discuss those options, as some of these courses are needed to meet graduation requirements.
Parents: Just a quick update on the current situation as it relates to Cal-Wheat and school closures. We are closed through April 30th at this time. The District applied for and received permission from the Department of Education to continue providing learning opportunities for your children. Staff have met and are planning ways to deliver new learning. That will be through teacher contact, zoom, google classroom, paper packets, email, etc... I want to stress that this is voluntary, but strongly encouraged, and children will receive feedback but no regular K-12 classes will receive grades.
PK-12 Parents/staff/community: The District will be putting out numerous emails and website posts next week. Rather than putting these in one large email that nobody will read, I’m hoping these will be very building specific. For example these will relate to college courses, elementary learning, credit recovery, concurrent courses, etc. My hope is that when you see the subject line you will take the time to read the email if it pertains to you. Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to work together in your child’s educational needs. Lonnie Luepker

2nd grade classes doing a team building activity. Each person had a string attached to one rubber band. They had to pull together to widen the rubber band to fit over the top of the solo cup... then let it in so it grasped the cup..... move together and make a tower with the cups. They made the tower and then tried to take the tower down into a stack.

Lori Forret wanted us to share a message on behalf of the Forret Family. We continue to struggle to find the right words to express how the actions of so many on Thursday night, along with this entire last week, has made our family feel. But here is our best attempt: To Cal-Wheat Baseball – The love and support that you showed your fellow teammate on one of the toughest days of his life will never be forgotten….not by Brian, not by Megan or myself, and not by the entire Cal-Wheat community. Your actions showed what being part of a team is all about. I’ve always said actions speak louder than words. You demonstrated the true meaning of caring for a teammate and his family. So many people have said “If there’s anything we can ever do, just ask.” You guys did something for us that we would’ve never asked for but will hold with us forever. To Cal-Wheat Softball – When we found out that you were part of this tribute really made us realize that it was more than just the baseball team and fans supporting our family…..it was an entire Warrior effort. Chris did spend a lot of time at your field while I was coaching, while Megan was playing, and especially helping get your field ready to play mowing the grass. Mowing your outfield was not a job to Chris, he didn’t do it for the money. He was concerned that the grass would be too long so your doubles would only be singles, or if there were too many grass clippings you wouldn’t get a good grip on the ball. He was concerned if he mowed when it was wet and left ruts the ball would take a bad bounce or someone would twist an ankle. He wanted you to arrive on game day, step out onto a beautiful field with perfectly straight lines and be able to have the best game possible. That is what pride he took in mowing your field and knowing you had a big part in his tribute is especially touching to us. To the Cal-Wheat Community – We all know that there is nothing better than living in a small community. But until you are on the receiving end of something so amazing like Thursday night, you never know that really is true. When trying to plan Chris’s visitation and funeral, we wanted everything to be perfect because this was the last memories that we would ever create with him. Because of all of you, Thursday could never have ended more perfect. #ForretStrong #WarriorStrong #ForeverAWarrior
Warrior Baseball and Softball teams are asking fans to wear PURPLE to home games on Thursday vs. Lisbon to show support for the Forret family. #StrikeOutCancer #gowarriors @CalWheatSBall @calwheatbruns @LisbonLionSB @lisbonbaseball @CalWheatHS @LisbonCSD

Mrs. Forret's class celebrated DNA Day yesterday. DNA Day is celebrated because of the importance of identifying the shape of DNA back in 1953 and also for the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003. These students have been learning all year long about the vital role DNA plays in so many parts of their lives. They might all have different DNA in their cells, but they all have Warrior blood running through their veins!
It is that time of year again... See attached for summer ticket taking dates for baseball and softball home games. Please call the high school office to help out and sign-up for one or more dates. We greatly appreciate your help for your/our students. #gowarriors https://5il.co/7d5z
