Thanks to all our community partners who joined us today at Indee Impact, our annual HIgh School career fair! We had over 20 local businesses join us for breakout sessions, a Human Resource panel, and booths in the gymnasium. Special shout out to Geater Manufacturing for their donation of metal ...blanks which were used to provide each business with an engraved coin! #MustangsOnAMission

Mrs. Stainbrook, Ms. Martinson, and many dedicated students joined forces with the women’s auxiliary and the VFW to prepare for Memorial Day. Together, they adorned the cemetery with flags and crosses as a tribute to those who have served our country.

Throughout the school year, Mr. ...Anderson and his wood shop students crafted the crosses, while several students added their artistic touch ensuring each one was ready for display. It's heartwarming to witness such community spirit in honoring our veterans. #MustangMoments

Director of Food Service Pam Wendel had the honor of spending Monday, May 20, 2024 at the 2nd Annual Guns & Hoses Bowling Tournament hosted at the 319 Social House here in Independence. This event raised $1500 with a very generous donation coming from Office Towne. These funds will be used to ...pay negative lunch balances. The winning team of Adam & Katie Kuhse, Lindsay O'Loughlin and Roy Nichols donated their winnings back as well! A check will be presented to the school district on May 31.

We would love to thank all that attended (Independence Police Department, Independence Fire Department, Buchanan County Emergency Management, Buchanan County Sheriff's Department, and the Iowa State Patrol) and for your generosity!
We are so blessed to live in such a caring community!

Our Food Service department harvested another 40 cups of rhubarb from the school garden. We're proud to serve locally grown foods to our students! #MustangsOnAMission

Mr. Jesse put breakout boxes in the library at West Elementary. Our fifth-grade students enjoyed this activity. The breakout boxes are like mini escape rooms that the students solve utilizing clues and their knowledge of the library. They worked together in teams in order to "break out." ...#mustangsonamission
