Independence Mock Trial team competed at the Waterloo Regional this spring. This is the program's 8th year with Coach Sarah Rothman, and the first with members from Dunkerton High School. Additional students at Independence completed Mock Trial 101 and helped the team prepare but did not ...participate in the competition; all of their contributions to the success of the program are appreciated.

Several members received special recognition at the competition: Jaxon Latwesen - Honorable Mention Witness and All District Attorney; Lauren Wolfensperger - Honorable Mention Attorney and All District Witness; Annalys Turci - All District Attorney; and Aaron Tanay - All District Witness and All District Attorney.

This week, Mrs. Hurley's Intro to Sociology class travelled to MHI to gain insight into diverse populations, experiences, and mental health treatments.

Today, West Elementary was visited by the University of Iowa Steel Band. The students had a great time listening to and learning about instruments from different parts of the world. We are grateful to Dr. Moore and his talented ensemble of music majors for sharing their love of music with us.

Our food service department has been busy! Last week we had a homemade zucchini dip served with sunchips. Today, lunch includes cheesy zucchini. All of the zucchini was harvested from our school garden.

Marjorie Crawford was employed with the Independence Community Schools as an associate at East Elementary for 6-7 years and a secretary at the Middle School from 1990 until 2002. Marj passed away suddenly in the summer of 2002, and there was a great outpouring of community support and donations to... place planters in her honor. Over the years family, friends, and West Elementary staff have dedicated time to planting and maintaining the planters. #MustangMoments
