It is an Odd Day

  • Attention Decorah Middle School, today our student council members will be dressed in all black and will not be speaking to anyone.   They are representing the nearly half a million people who die from drugs each year.  Please take this seriously and be respectful of them.
  • Anyone interested in attending a cheerleading clinic can stop in the office to pick up the information. The clinic will be held Friday, November 7 from 9:00-12:00.
  • Decorah Park & Rec is hosting the annual Middle School Coed Dodgeball Tournament Friday, November 7.  The tournament will begin at 8:45 am and will run most of the morning. Cost is $25 per team, and teams must include at least 3 girls and 3 boys. Team roster forms and waivers are available from Mr. Carlson and Mrs. Pipho and should be returned to them or to the Park & Rec office by Tuesday, November 4.
