The Bank Iowa Challenge Cup recognizes school systems that provide students opportunities for success in athletics, academics and the arts. As was the case last year, Grundy Center Schools were again rated as one of the top ten schools in Class A. In addition to a full complement of opportunities in athletics, dance/cheer and the arts, Grundy Center Students can participate and excel in Academic Decathlon, Lego League, First Tech Challenge, and a myriad of science, math and literacy programs (e.g. Battle of the Books, Science Fair, etc). If we also consider the local, regional and national-level success we have had in a number of these programs along with our national-level opportunities in FFA, German Exchange and this year’s Band Trip to Chicago…there are lots of opportunities for our students to connect to the world from Grundy Center, Iowa! Although all of our advisors are dedicated and deserve recognition, I would like to highlight the efforts of Don Osterhaus for his dedication and leadership of our Academic Decathlon program. Under Don’s leadership, Grundy Center sent four students to Nationals last spring…a first for the State of Iowa…and our students performed extremely well on the national stage. Thanks, Don, for all you do for our students!
