This quote is very fitting when referring to the mission statement for L.E.E.P. to enhance the value and mean- ing of education for students. Without the continued support financially and through volunteerism from the community, students in the LeMars Community School district may not have the opportunity to use state of the art technology or progressive curriculum to invent and create enhancing their education. A huge thank you goes out to the amazing communities that compose the LeMars Community School district, you are what is making education great for our students and future leaders. L.E.E.P. meetings are scheduled to be held the first Monday of each month, from August through May. The next regular meeting is Monday, February 5, 2018. Meetings are open to the public and are held in room A-09 in the LeMars Middle School. Preschool Applications Economics Everywhere! ​ Kluckhohn's third grade classes entered the "Economics Everywhere!" poster contest earlier this year. The contest had the students draw and illustrate a poster conveying a theme of economics. This is part of their social studies curriculum taught by Mrs. Brooks. The Dordt Center for Economic Education sponsored this contest. The winning students' posters were used in a calendar published by the center. The winning students each re- ceived a certificate and a calendar. The winning students were Karis Hulinsky, Kali Cunningham, and Calista Rus- so. Kent Westhoff, Laura Emerson, and Nancy Lundula received an honor- able mention certifi- cate.
