The State of Iowa has passed a new law, requiring the meningococcal (specifically ACWY) vaccine for students entering grades seven and 12, beginning with the 2017-18 school year. All incoming seventh- and 12th-grade students will need to submit a completed Certificate of Immunization with the Meningococcal (ACWY) vaccination to avoid being excluded from school next year.
On Monday, March 6, 2017, Indian Hills eighth-grade students are invited to participate in our very own version of the Food Network’s “Chopped” reality cooking show.
Students can compete to make a healthy, delicious breakfast. Judges will be Sunny Fresh, Inc. Chef Brent Preppernau, Indian Hills Principal Shane Christensen, WDMCS Food Services Director Willow Dye, and one lucky student!
Students also have the chance to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card. To be eligible, students must complete and turn in the breakfast trivia sheet to the main office.
Thank you to the WDMCS Nutrition Services department and Sunny Fresh Foods, Inc. for hosting the event!

There were four teams from each school competing in the double-elimination competition.
Teams of students studied multiple science disciplines, including chemistry, physics, earth science, genetics, astronomy, human biology, botany, zoology, and taxonomy. Teams were coached by Indian Hills science teacher Shelly Urban and Stilwell science teachers Bryan Bacehowski and Ruth Henderson.
Many teachers and administrators volunteered their time as judges, timers, scorekeepers, and general supervision.
