Wondering what your teachers have been up to?
Click on this link to find out.......
Are you looking for something to do? Are you bored because you miss school SO much? Do you wish you had a clever way to interact with your friends you haven't seen?
Parents, do you need something to do with your kids? Or do you need something for you kids to do.....over there.......away from you.........maybe in a different room or outside?
Well look no further. But....keep looking down this page.....like, there's a video you will need to look at, so.....I guess just look a little further, but that is it. Then don't look anymore.
We at the Ansley Institute of Fun and Games, have come up with a way to keep us all connected, but still apart. It is called Ansley Taskmaster. Loosley based on an English television show, Ansley Taskmaster will present a simple task for individuals, groups, or families to solve in clever ways. Each task will be solved in the form of a 30 second or less video that will be uploaded to Flipgrid, a free app that allows people to post their video, and look at how other individuals or groups solved the task in different ways. There's no right way to solve these tasks, and the fun is seeing how other people have found their solutions in their own ways. At the end of the week, a group of selected people will find the person or family that has the best video and award a prize.
Flip Grid is free, but will require an account. All of the students have an email that will allow them to create an acoount easily. Their email is firstname.lastname@example.org
For example: email@example.com - (not a real student)
Passwords for the elementary will be set at a default setting that can be changed via a page on the school webpage.
Junior High and high school may have changed theirs already.
If you need a password for your student's account, call the school or email Mr. Olson at firstname.lastname@example.org

if the link doesn't work.
Once you click on this link and get an account, adding videos is simple. Just click on the Green + sign and allow Flip Grid to use your camera and microphone. You can then shoot your video. Don't like it? Trash it and start over. When you get one that is satisfactory, add your name and selfie and it will be loaded with everyone else's. You can even shoot and edit video in clips, or make a video with Imovie or some other app and upload your 30 second or less video to Flip Grid.
Everyone in the Ansley School Community is invited to participate. It is easy to do. And a good way to keep in touch with your friends and neighbors.
We want as many entries as we can get, so if you have a family of four, come up with four different ideas if you want. Or do one as a family, either way is great.
If you have any issues at all, call the school or email Mr. Olson and we will get it figured out. Hopefully we have covered the important parts and we can figure out the rest.
Watch the video to see two people ramble through an otherwise simple explanation of this whole process.

2020 Softball/Baseball/T-ball Sign-Up Form
At this time, we are asking anyone with a child interested in playing summer ball to fill out this form. We are trying to gather names and get a head count of players interested. If you are in PreK-12th grade, we want to be able to find a team for you!
It is unclear what our season will entail with the uncertainty of our current situation, so at this time please do not send any money with the return of these forms. If restrictions are lifted and the season is able to be played, then we will gather fees at that time. We will pray and hope for the best that life can get back to normal soon.
PARENTS: Coaches are needed. If you are willing to coach, please volunteer. We are also needing volunteers for umping behind the plate and in the outfield at home games.
PLEASE RETURN TO SCHOOL OFFICE with your students homework packets on Monday, March 30, as well as sending a screenshot of the completed form to League Representative, Donna Hoblyn-Bittner at 308-870-0883 or email it to email@example.com due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Hello from the lunch room
It is so quiet without all the chatter of school kids, and yes we do miss it!
Lunches started out as a pbj with fruits and veggies in a grab-n-go bag. The school then added country delivery of meals so those kids can enjoy the delicious food from the school kitchen! The first day of meals we fed 23 kids. Now we are feeding over 100! We have evolved to sloppy joes and chicken alfredo. And of course, one of the kids favorites, chicken nuggets! We have ordered many different veggie and fruit juices to take the place of the fresh fruit and vegetables that are limited for purchase. Hopefully, the kids enjoy the variety of fun things we are trying to incorporate in their menu.
Keep the orders coming and we have enjoyed preparing meals and serving our school kids!
Just a reminder: Please wash hands before each meal
Meals should be eaten immediately
Please rewash fresh fruit
If you do not drink your carton of milk, please refrigerate it
If hot food is leftover, reheat to 165 degrees for 15 seconds
Hope to see you soon,
Mrs Hartman, Mrs Bramer, and Mrs Miller
