Keokuk County Child Care Study Dear Parents and Staff, The limited availability of child care options throughout Keokuk County has been affecting the children, their families, and the employers for years. Without exception, child care providers and parents of young children tell us there are not enough available openings in locations throughout our county. Iowa Jefferson Keokuk Early Childhood Iowa, in partnership with the Sigourney Area Development Corporation and the City of Richland, has contracted with First Children’s Finance (FCF) to complete a child care study. The study will include research and analysis on: the needs of local families and children, the current supply of regulated child care, parents’ current and preferred child care, effects on employers caused by lack of child care, and child care providers’ challenges operating during COVID. The report will include the key findings of the research and analysis; the county’s child care gap; and a recommendation on the number and type of child care spots that would be reasonable to meet the needs. The research being conducted by FCF includes a survey of parents that live or work in Keokuk County to learn about their child care preferences, along with child care challenges they may be facing. The survey for child care providers and preschools can be accessed online through July 15, 2022 at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KeokukChildCare If you have questions or would like more information about this project, contact Tammy Wetjen-Kesterson with Iowa Jefferson Keokuk Early Childhood Iowa at iowajeffersonkeokukeci@gmail.com or Gary Losbaker with the Sigourney Area Development Corporation at sadc@sigourney.com. Thank you, Mr. Hatfield

Dear Pekin Staff, Students, Parents and Community Members, Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the students, teachers, and families of Uvalde, Texas. These incidents remind us how important our efforts are to invest in forming trusting relationships with and among students in our schools. The PCSD has important safety protocols in place. As superintendent, I hope to have School Resource Officer on campus for the 22-23 school year. Please know that the district has been working to improve all security-related matters. We all have a role in sustaining a safe learning environment. If you or your child see or hear something out of the ordinary or concerning, say something to someone involved. Report things to your teacher, principal, or local law enforcement officials. Of course, in an emergency, call 911. With a heavy heart - Mr. Hatfield

The fourth graders have been busy in Mrs. Scholtus’s Language Arts classroom the second semester of the school year working on a variety of projects involving reading, researching, note-taking, writing an essay and creating a project to share within the classroom and with various teachers. The students used the GPAEA student resource websites to research a topic of their choice. There were over 215 choices which the fourth graders could choose from. The students studied a variety of people, places, natural disasters, history of the United States, buildings and structures, galaxies and black holes, and medical issues such as cancer. The students were also given choices on creating their interest center projects. They could choose a poster, diorama, or model for the hands-on projects. Or they could use their laptops to create a slideshow or flipgrid video to use technology. The students did 4 projects this semester and used both types of projects. These projects also allowed students to receive more specialized instruction for their reading and writing at their independent learning level. The fourth graders would share these projects with their classmates so that other students could learn about a different topic also. Here are a few examples of some of the work the students did.
