Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year!
Spartan Pride ... Expect Excellence

Happy August 5th everyone. It is hard to believe that school will be starting soon. As we kick off the new school year, new teachers and their mentors will start on Friday, August 16th. Returning staff will start on Monday, August 19th. We are looking forward to the 2019-20 school year as we continue on our journey.

Thank you again for your support as I start year 4 at Exira-EHK. Great things are happening in our district and I am looking forward to the 2019-20 school year. I will be in Exira-EHK 3 days one week and 2 days the next. I will try to have a set schedule but as we all know, situations may arise where the schedule may need to be adjusted.

We have a New Secondary Principal in the Elk Horn Building, Mary Bleth-Harris. I appreciate the board understanding the needs of our district and adding this position to help our district continue to move forward in instruction and to have an administrator in the building every day. This year we have several new staff members and would like to introduce them:

In the Exira building, Kirstin Blake will be preschool and Alicia Petersen and Brittni Williams will be 1stGrade. In the Elk Horn building, Andrea Nulle will be High School Science and Coach, Alex Hansen will be High School Social Studies and Coach, Cory Bartz will be Middle School Math, Personal Finance and Coach, Cody Parmley K-12 Music, Megan Wilkerson will be Middle/High School Special Education and Beverly Ohlinger will be High School Special Education.

We will be having an OPEN House on Wednesday, August 21st
Elk Horn will be from 5:30-7: 30 pm and Exira will be from

4:30-6:30 pm.
