Students to release salmon raised from eggs into their local watershed

The salmon will depart on April 25, immediately after school. This is not a school sponsored trip. If you would like to be part of the excitement, you can meet us at Wolcott Mill Metropark, near the Grist Mill. The release will be near the bridge into the Clinton River. This is a fast running river area, perfect for our Chinook Salmon to begin the next stage of their lives.

I will be driving the salmon out. You are more than welcome to follow me out. I anticipate leaving school by 3:45 and arriving at 4:15 depending on how fast the fish can be transferred into the buckets.

There is a great book written by Richard Louv called "Last Child in the Woods". If you would like to better understand how we need to reconnect our children to nature,  please read it. He also has a website called "Children and Nature Network"- highly recommended.

It is amazing how little fish in a cup, and some grass and mud on the hands, can vibrate up the arm and straight to the heart. Just come and watch our little fish biologists' smiles. It is something they will not forget.


RecycleFourth grade students were involved in a recycling program through the MISD. Students learned what can be recycled and how long everyday items take to break down. Click on the picture for more pictures.

Our school will receive $2.00 for each accepted cartridge. Cartridges that are brought from home can be sealed in a zip lock baggy.
Let's help our environment and recycle them! Bring your cartridges to the main office.

Box Tops for Education

Lottie is still looking for all your Box Tops for Education. They can be found on the top of most General Mills boxes. Please send them in with your student.
With each and every little box top Lottie has been given the chance to purchase items for the school and we would like to say thank you for your support.

"Take A Stand, Lend A Hand, Stop Bullying, NOW"

logoLottie M. Schmidt Elementary School has started a new program called:
"Take A Stand, Lend A Hand, Stop Bullying, NOW"

The classes will be held every other Wednesday. Classes started on October 4th for all of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. On October 11th all Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders will start their classes.

Field Trips

Whenever a field trip is scheduled, parental permission must be submitted in writing. A form with the details will be sent home with your child(ren) prior to the event. If the permission slip is not filled out and signed, the child will not be allowed to go on the trip with the group. Please note that the Student Code of Conduct and all school rules are in effect during field trips.

Lost and Found

Each school has a lost and found area. Students should check the lost and found area if they are missing any personal items. Items such as eyeglasses, jewelry, and watches are turned in to the school office. Unclaimed items will be given to charity on a periodic basis.
