In the library today, our students got to learn about the Mars rover, Perseverance, and her helicopter, Ingenuity! We got to see the location of the Mars rover, which landed February 18th, look at pictures comparing the size of the rover to one of her engineers, and view the immersive 360 degree panoramic image of Mars that Perseverance sent back to NASA. Then students got to pose "with" Perseverance, and ask lots of questions! We are excited about the rover on Mars, and we even thought of some advice for scientists on the next rover they launch. We think it should have a big Strawn "S" painted on it! To learn more about our library and its resources, please visit https://www.strawnschool.net/page/library.
February flew by, and March is on the way! Our cafeteria has some tasty meals planned. Remember, you can also find the menu on our app and website under the Dining section. Thanks to the USDA, we are able to offer free meals to our students, staff, and community! Community members: If you would like to pick up FREE to-go meals, please e-mail email@example.com the night before so our cafeteria staff can have those ready for you. Pick up each weekday is 7:45 AM for breakfast and 10:30 AM for lunch! We look forward to serving you!
We are so happy to be able to open our doors to our students again! Speaking of doors... check out these positive messages our staff created on theirs! More photos on our Facebook page.

Mr. Mitchell had an updated visit at 9:05 pm tonight with our Strawn city secretary and the water samples are not yet at a level to lift the mandatory boil water mandate in Strawn. Even though Strawn School has drinking water available, with all utilities and facilities functioning, due to an abundance of caution, we will not have school on Tuesday, February 23rd to maintain 100% safety for our students and staff. I will have daily meetings and updates on the status of our Strawn water and will keep you informed. Thanks again for your patience and understanding during this water crisis. - Mr. Mitchell
