Our preschool students enjoyed having the Iowa PBS STEAM trailer at Delwood last week. Students had a great time exploring all of the different items and activities in the trailer.

Another day, another introduction...Mr. Skogen is teaching PE at Delwood this year. Here is a note from Mr. Skogen: I am from Mason City, IA. I attended NIACC (North Iowa Area Community College) and then Grand View University after that where I played basketball. My parents are Jeff and Tracy Skogen, and I have two younger brothers named Mac and Jeffrey. Outside of school, I like to run, golf, coach basketball, and attend sporting events. I am a huge Iowa Hawkeye and Minnesota Viking fan.

The new staff introductions continue... Hello, I am Charley Ohnemus and I am the new art teacher at Delwood and can't wait to get started! A little about myself: My husband, Tyler, is a police officer and we have four kids: Makenna (14), Tenley (11), Gable (10), and Lawson (19 months). I spend most of my time watching or coaching my children in their various sports, but I also really love to travel! I grew up in DeWitt and am the youngest of 12 kids. I was an aunt before I was even born and growing up I spent most of my time babysitting, so being surrounded by kids all day feels just like home! I am looking forward to a great year here at Delwood!

Hello Delwood community, My name is Liz Kent. I'll be the new TAG teacher for Andrew and Delwood this year. I graduated from St. Ambrose University with my degree in Elementary Education and a reading endorsement in 2018. I worked as a paraeducator at Delwood for the 2018-2019 school year. Then, I taught 3rd grade at Sacred Heart Elementary School in Maquoketa for the past three years. I'm currently taking graduate classes through Morningside University to earn my TAG endorsement. My husband Cody and I have an almost 2 year-old daughter named Lila. She is our pride and joy! We also have two dogs, Tator and Gemma, and a cat, Kiki. We have a house outside of Maquoketa that we've lived in for four years. Prior to that, we lived in DeWitt for 4 years. We love "country life"! In my free time, I love camping, riding around in our side-by-side, traveling, shopping, doing crafts, and playing with Lila. I'm very excited to be back at Delwood and at Andrew! I owe a big thank you to all of the staff at both schools, as well as the community members I've met so far for being so welcoming. I look forward to getting to know all of you and your children.

We have some new faces in our building this year, so we thought we would take some time this week to introduce our new staff members. Mrs. Buller is teaching fifth grade this year. Here's a little note from Mrs. Buller: I have been teaching for 22 years and I LOVE IT! Born and raised in Illinois, I have lived in the Quad City Area for at least half of those years. I live in a rural area and enjoy the wildlife (red fox, deer, coyotes, squirrels and many species of birds and trees). I can see all of this from the deck on our home and enjoy it so much. For hobbies, I enjoy camping, swimming, and kayaking, which we do with many of our children in the summer; however, you will often find me baking something in the kitchen with one of our five children or six grandchildren. Life is good and I am very blessed!

There will be some new books on the shelves of our library for students to check out next year. The books were generously donated in memory of Ilah Portz. Ilah's mom, Val, is our school nurse. Val selected the books and this week, some of our students who knew Ilah helped Mrs. Proesch put some special stickers on the inside covers of the books. Thank you Portz family for the donation!
