Community Support for the School District

We are indeed grateful for the generous support of our community. It is through their partnership with the school district that our students are able to receive a quality 21st century education.

Ropes Ag Boosters
The Ag Boosters for the 2002-2003 school year raised $15,000 to support our students involved in 4-H, Junior FFA, and High School FFA.

Ropes Lions Club
The Lions created and published a Friday night football program, volunteered their time to work the gate, and donated money to the technology program.

Many thanks to those who contributed to the DAT scholarship fund. Parents donated $715.00 to the fund. Five students and one staff member received six $350.00 scholarships.
