District Family House Fire Benefit

Jeff & Katrina Gerber’s family, of rural Hooppole, suffered a disastrous house fire on Monday, October 17, 2016. Fortunately, nobody was home and their family pet was secured outside at the time of the fire.

Tragically, the house is a complete loss.

In support of the long-time Annawan community family and the two boys who are students in our school, we have planned several opportunities for people to make cash donations.


Congratulations Staff Member of the Month – Chris DeMay

Congratulations to the Chris DeMay, who was drawn as Annawan CUSD 226  Staff Member of the Month for September.  Chris was nominated by Chris Kidd “For thinking of things none of us would remember to do”!  Chris will get a $50 gift certificate to Mick’s Place in Annawan.


Congratulations Junior High Student Council Officers

In September, the junior high student body elected Student Council officers. These officers are in charge of running meetings, planning events, making decisions, daily pledge announcements, concession stands, and being responsible members of the student body.

They also help plan numerous events throughout the school year including Red Ribbon week, Veteran’s Day assembly, student council fundraisers, junior high dance, and other fun activities for fellow junior high students.

This year, the junior high elected four GREAT leaders.

  • President: Brendan Wattenberg
  • Vice President: Jayse Heitlzer
  • Treasurer: Rhett Hulick
  • Secretary: Courtney Baele

Congratulations Officers!!!
