Christmas Food Drive
Our Annual Christmas Food Drive is approaching. Learn more in the letter below.
Second Graders Turkey Disguises
The second grade read the story Turkey Trouble. It’s about a turkey who does not want to get eaten on Thanksgiving so he disguises himself.
The second graders then devised a plan to disguise their own turkey. To do this, Mrs. Duray gave them full access to her art supplies.
Will they be finding glitter all over for the rest of the year? Yes.
Were they too heavy with liquid Elmer’s glue and glitter to hang up to display? Also yes.
Are the turkeys well disguised and did they turn out great? Yes and yes!
We hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving weekend!
TC Musicians Earn High Ratings
Tri-County Students earned high ratings at the Minnesota State High School League Instrumental and Vocal Solo Contests held at Kittson Central on Nov. 17, 2021. The students prepared a solo over the past couple of months and then performed their solo for judges who then critiqued and scored them. Students can earn the following ratings: Fair, Good, Excellent, and Superior.
Summer Dembiczak, flute, performed Suite in A minor #2 “Les Plaisirs” by Telemann, and earned a Superior Rating. Emily Barth, french horn, performed “I Attempt from Love’s Sickness” by Purcell, and earned a Superior Rating. Damon Slaathaug, baritone, sang “Eily Dear” an Irish Folk Song, and earned a Superior Rating. Jazzy Walz, alto, sang “On My Own” from Les Miserables and earned a Superior Rating. Jaxon Klegstad, baritone, sang “Caro Mio Ben” by Giordani and earned a Superior Rating. Emily Barth, soprano, sang “Widmung” by Schumann, and earned a Superior Rating and perfect score. Each of the two vocal judges also selected Emily Barth and Jaxon Klegstad as Outstanding Soloists of the day. What an accomplishment for these Tri-County High School Musicians!

Students of the Month - October
Named October Student of the Month was Brianna Severson. Brianna has been doing just an outstanding job this year in her classes. She is keeping herself caught up and even ahead in some classes. She is very engaged and enthused. She is doing a great job in her math class where she is even helping others with their note packets when they miss school. She is using her time in classes to get her work done and just seems very happy and smiley. We appreciate you and all your great efforts at Tri-County School. Keep up the great work, Brianna.
Ella Ottersetter in the 8th grade was also named October student of the month. She was given this award because she is always on task and gets her work done in classes. She has been a great student council member this fall helping out in so many aspects. Way to go Ella!
