Leola Elementary was recently named a National Title I Distinguished School by the National Title I Association.

The school was chosen by the South Dakota State Department of Education based on outstanding performance in one of three categories:

  • Category 1: Exceptional student performance for two or more consecutive years
  • Category 2: Closing the achievement gap between student groups
  • Category 3: Excellence in serving special populations of students (e.g. homeless, migrant, English learners, etc.) 

 

Each year, only two schools in the state receive this national recognition. As a result, this is a particularly impressive honor for the students, staff, parents, and community. Leola Elementary School received this prestigious honor based on category two; closing the achievement gap between student groups.

Press Release for North Area Honor Band December 3, 2016

The 26th Annual South Dakota North Area Honor Band will present their concert on Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 7:00PM at the Johnson Fine Arts Center on the campus of Northern State University.  Dr. Jason Caslor, Associate Director of Bands and Orchestras at Arizona State University, will be the guest conductor at this year’s Honor Band.

 

The South Dakota North Area Honor Band was created when area band directors began expressing an interest in providing a regional opportunity for their experienced instrumental musicians.  Upon nomination by their band director, students who auditioned for the 2016 South Dakota All-State Band are seated first in the ensemble, and additional students of high caliber complete the sections.  It remains the goal of the directors to increase the interest in instrumental performance and to provide a top level learning experience for the more advanced high school band students of this area.

 

Representing twenty-six schools, approximately one hundred students have been selected to participate in the Honor Band.  Participating schools and their directors are Aberdeen Central – Jeremy Schutter & John Patzlaff; Aberdeen Christian – Andrew Grandpre; Aberdeen Roncalli – Kimberly Carda & Jessica Larson; Castlewood – Vicki Bjerke; Clark – Lola Bartels; Doland – Ariana Butterfield; Eureka – Dale Batie; Faulkton – Jamie Werner; Gettysburg – Dixie Beitelspacher; Great Plains Lutheran – Eric Martens; Groton Area – Austin Fordham & Desiree Yeigh; Henry – Deanna Martens; Hoven – Elizabeth Bengs; Howard – Jean Winkler; Huron – Larry Petersen; Ipswich – Becky Nierman; Langford – Kelly Wieser; Leola – Nancy Kindelspire; Milbank – Susan Karels; Northwestern – Wendy Thorson; Rosholt – Buffy Kemnitz; Selby Area – Sam Glantzow; Sully Buttes – Erica Guthmiller; Warner – Sharon Schwan; Webster Area – Patty Baule & Jill Spindler; and Wolsey-Wessington – Rachel Halsey.

 

Cadin Kallenberger & Audree Berreth are Leola's student representatives. Admission prices for the concert are $4 for adults and $2 for students.
