    Day 107


    1. Good luck to the 9th/JV/Varsity basketball teams as they take on Roland-Story tonight at Baxter. In the East gym at 4:30 will be the JV girls game, followed by the 9th grade boys. The 9th grade girls game for tonight has been cancelled. In the West gym at 4:30 pm are the JV boys, followed by varsity girls and the varsity boys.


    2. Good luck to our wrestlers tomorrow at Sectionals at Adel. Bus leaves Maxwell at 8am and Baxter at 8:30am. Wrestling starts at 12pm in Adel.


    3. Winter Dance is tomorrow night from 7-9 p.m.  HS only.  Individuals are $3 while couples are $5. There is a sign up sheet in the office if you are planning to bring a guest who does not attend Collins-Maxwell CSD. Just a reminder they need to be under 21.


    4. The dance team is still selling Valentines cookies to raise money. The deadline to order has been extended to 3:30 today. I have order forms here in the office or you can get one from any dance team member.


    5. The NHS is having a blood drive on Wednesday, February 10 from noon to 6. You must be 16 years old to donate. If you are a first time donor, you must have a permission form signed by a parent/guardian turned in to Mrs. Hartgers PRIOR to your donation time. You can get this form from Mrs. Hartgers or the Office. Please see Mrs. Hartgers to sign up for a donation time.


    6. PSAT scores are in.  Please see Mrs. Allen if you took the PSAT in October.


    7. Tomorrow’s menu will be the Wednesday Chef Salad menu PLUS cinnamon rolls.


    8. All students riding the shuttle bus in the mornings should be in the small gym, not waiting outside. The supervisors will take kids out to the bus when they are here and ready.

    If you are a MS student that rides a Maxwell route bus, you are to go immediately after school to the small gym for bus duty. If you are a HS student that rides a Maxwell route bus, you need to wait in the commons area, NOT in the small gym. If you are a HS or MS student that lives in town here, you need to go home after school unless you have some prearranged meeting with a teacher or a practice of some kind. We have too many kids just wandering the hall after school.




    • Good morning, and welcome to the improved district website.  We hope you will find items easier - as well as more information!  Please send comments to our superintendent, Jason Ellingson, at jellingson@collins-maxwell.k12.ia.us  
    • We hope to add important information specifically for the elementary here soon!!
