In the last newsletter I challenged mother nature and pointed but the weather has not been too bad, but to prepare for snow and cold. I jinxed it; I should not have said anything. Cold and snowy is not much fun. Remember that February is a short month and besides; if we didn’t have any […]
The holidays are over and winter has set in. This is an annual ritual, which we Iowans have grown accustomed to. The bitter cold has been a challenge. We cannot emphasize enough the need for our students to wear appropriate attire to school. This applies to elementary, junior high and high school students. If the […]
The weather presently doesn’t feel like winter, but brace yourself; it is coming. I suggest reviewing your late start and early dismissal plan with your student(s). On the really cold mornings we will not have the students wait outside, rather, invite them inside. Please make sure we have your email or cell number so we […]
The holiday season is quickly getting nearer and nearer. I hope your student(s) are having a great school year. It truly is an honor for families to entrust their child’s education and well-being to the West Burlington Independent School District. Please let us know if something isn’t going well, if there is a concern, or if […]

Our staff works hard in the […]
Welcome Letter By David Schmitt It is that time of year again. The sun is hot and the lawns are getting brown. Families are planning vacations and summer sports are starting to wind down.

The 2016-2017 school year will be near completion when you read the final edition for the year. The school year has certainly gone quickly. West Burlington Independent School District has had a great year with many accomplishments. Falcon pride is alive and well. We are providing summer school once again this summer. If your student […]
The fourth quarter has begun and the end of the school year is starting to look like a reality. We probably all agree the older we get, the faster the school year goes. I suspect some of our students are thinking the school year simply plods slowly along. It might be safe to say we […]
The school year continues to move quickly. Maybe our students have a different opinion on that subject. Many of you might remember the TV show, The A Team. The leader of this band of misfits was named Hannibal. One of his favorites lines that he frequently said was, “I love it when a plan comes […]
We have had a reprieve from the typical cold, long, and snowy winter. I know, I probably just jinxed it. The 2016-2017 school year has passed the midpoint and we continue to have an excellent school year. West Burlington Arnold High School has been identified as one of the top 500 schools in the nation […]
