ACSD sponsoring Kindness, Courage and Respect retreats for students through Youth Frontiers organization again this year

The Allamakee Community School District (ACSD)will once again be sponsoring a number of retreats for its students in November. Youth Frontiers, an organization from Minneapolis, MN, will host the retreats.  Youth Frontiers is a non-profit organization in existence since 1987 and has delivered over 795 retreats this year to over 120,000 students.
Youth Frontiers’ retreats act as a catalyst for students.  By taking an entire grade offsite (to Village Creek Bible Camp again this year), Youth Frontiers challenges those students to bring respect back to the hallways of the school.  These retreats will focus on Kindness, Courage and Respect. Ultimately, students become engaged in making the school a place where students and teachers are respected and both are challenged to learn to maximize their full potential.

Unique partnership for home construction projects produces multiple benefits for school district and Waukon community


Waukon High School construction class students work under the experienced eye of instructor Jed Hemann on construction of a new home located in the West Side Development in Waukon. Once the home is completed, it will be sold, with proceeds being used first to pay any expenses associated with building the home and to pay for the lot. Any remaining funds will be given to the school and would be used for funding in the Allamakee Community School District's Career and Technical Education curriculum. Submitted photo.
