Envision: End of the School Year

It's hard to believe another school year is almost in the books. Dr. Maher looks back on the triumphs and challenges of 2017-2018.

SFSD Potential Teacher Internship Program

Sioux Falls School District LogoHave an Interest in Being a Teacher or Know Someone Who Does?

The Sioux Falls School District is piloting a paid Teacher Internship Program for the 2018-2019 school year for individuals who have thought about a career in education. You do not need to currently work for the Sioux Falls School District to qualify. If you are currently employed by the District as a Facilitator, EA, Specialist, or work in some other capacity besides a classroom teacher, this may be a career changing opportunity for you. Applicants need to have a Bachelor’s Degree, or will be completing the degree, prior to starting the internship.

Envision: Administrative Hiring

Hiring happens year-round when you have 3,000+ employees doing as much as ours do: designing curriculum, teaching students, helping teachers, creating budgets, ordering supplies, making meals, mowing lawns, driving snowplows, conducting psychological evaluations, treating injuries or diseases and much, much more. But the spring is one of the busiest times - preparing for a new school year. Dr. Maher explains.

RHS Art Student Selected for Oscar Howe Art Institute

Congratulations to Roosevelt art student Kerina Provost!

Kerina was recently notified that she has been selected to participate in the 2018 Oscar Howe Summer Art Institute (OHSAI) at the University of South Dakota. The institute is scheduled for June 10-22, 2018. It is a fun and educational event that has been sponsored for talented young artists since 1991, in honor of Oscar Howe's legacy. 

The OHSAI is set up at no cost to the students because all participants receive full-funding for art supplies, housing and meals. Kerina will work in the USD Art studios and receive instruction from professional artist-teachers including Wendy Red Star, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Neal Ambrose-Smith and Keith Braveheart, to name a few. There will be daily lectures on Northern Plains art and culture and on the weekend there is a scheduled trip to Minneapolis, MN to visit museums and galleries.

Task Force Survey Coming Soon

Task Force

The SFSD Facilities Planning Task Force is making good progress in determining future needs to account for the District’s increasing enrollment. Early in the process, the District mentioned a community-wide survey would be launched May 1. As discussions continue, it has been determined that it would be in the best interest of the community to delay the survey until the Task Force has gotten deeper into its work. Survey questions can then be more specific and, thereby, the answers more informative to the Task Force and the School Board. We'll be sure to post a link to the survey as soon as it is ready. Your feedback is important in this process!

RHS Student Earns 1st Place in Congressional Art Competition

Ashley Geraets

Roosevelt High School's art department was notified today that RHS Junior Ashley Geraets and her artwork, "Fall of Shinrinyoku", have been awarded 1st place in the Congressional Art Competition. Ashley's piece will hang in the Cannon Tunnel in the U.S. Capitol for the next year.

Last year, Ashley won 1st place for her colored pencil, "Aqua Vitae" about water conservation and nature, and her piece is currently in D.C. representing South Dakota. Two years ago she won 2nd place, and her colored pencil piece "Foxology" was displayed in Representative Kristi Noem's office. This year's piece features the black footed ferret, a species that is endangered in South Dakota.

This is the 7th time in the past 9 years that Roosevelt students won 1st or 2nd in this prestigious competition. Winners from each state are selected and their works displayed in the Cannon Tunnel in the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. for one year.  Runner ups are displayed in the State capitals.

Congratulations to Ashley Geraets and her Roosevelt art teacher Lisa Dresch!

Envision: School Calendar Discussions

Each year, a committee of parents, community members, staff from every SFSD employee group, and publicly-elected School Board members chooses a calendar for the year following next in order to give students, parents and staff members plenty of time to prepare for and plan camps, vacations, and more. Learn more about this process, including the 11,000 pieces of community input collected last year, which contributed heavily to the 2019-2020 calendar.
