Congratulations to the "Students of the 3rd Quarter." They are 7th grader Braylon Wegner, 8th grader AJ Wiese, freshman Lilly Beutler, sophomore Stephanie Wiese, junior Caden Hansen and senior Aubrey Berg.
Starting this month, Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits will be issued to eligible students. Families do not need to apply for these benefits.
Benefits will be issued to students who meet the following criteria:
• Determined eligible for free or reduced-price school meals by Direct Certification through SNAP, TANF or Medicaid eligibility for school year 2020-21.
• Attend a school that has been closed or operating at reduced attendance or hours for at least 5 consecutive days. Eligible students that have opted-in for fully remote learning or experienced a quarantine for a minimum of five consecutive days will also qualify for P-EBT benefits.
Our district will submit student eligibility data to the Nebraska Department of Education and Department of Health and Human Services. Eligible students will receive funds monthly based on their learning mode (split/hybrid schedule -$62 or fully remote- $116). Information on how to use the cards will be issued with the cards. Additional information on the P-EBT assistance program can be found on USDA’s website and DHHS EBT webpage.
The second grade class has spent several weeks learning about erosion, landslides and the changing Earth with Project Lead The Way.
The final project had students problem-solve how to save neighborhoods from potential landslides. Students worked in small groups to create their designs. Most students found that retaining walls and rocks provided the best structures.
Aubrey Berg, a senior at Bancroft-Rosalie, has been selected for the Wayne State College "Growing Together Career Scholars Program."
The Growing Together Career Scholars program is an accelerated curriculum program at WSC that arms students with the knowledge as well as the soft skills to work in a business related to their major during their senior year.
In the first three years at WSC, they have the opportunity to engage with Norfolk business partners through site visits, job shadowing and mentorships. During their senior year, they move to Norfolk where they earn 18 credit hours by working for a Norfolk business for approximately 30 hours a week over a nine-month period.
As part of the program, students are required to reside in housing in the downtown Norfolk area, which provides them the opportunity to engage academically and socially with their peers. This portion of the program helps them connect with the community and gain an appreciation for the many social and cultural opportunities available in the city of Norfolk. Upon graduation, the goal is for students to be hired into full-time positions in northeast Nebraska.
To ensure they have financial support to remain focused on the program, students receive a scholarship ranging from $2,000-$10,000 per year to cover tuition, fees, room and board. The bulk of the scholarship is paid out during their senior year to help cover housing while living in downtown Norfolk. The total scholarship package is valued around $24,000 over the four years in the program.
