July 2, 2018 Dear students and families of Andrew Community School, Please accept this letter as my regretful resignation from my position as a school counselor at Andrew Community School. My husband has accepted a position in Green Bay, Wisconsin that will further his growth in his career. This is a move that will also put us closer to our family and take us back to our home state. We are very excited for this opportunity, but sad to say goodbye to the home we have made in Iowa. I cannot thank you enough for the joy your children have given me in my time at Andrew Community School. The past 9 years at Andrew have been an experience that I will take with me forever. I don’t think I will ever find another place as special as Andrew is! Thank you for the opportunity to teach and work with your children, and I do hope you will stay in touch (you can email me anytime at kimberlykorth@gmail.com). I am excited to learn about all the amazing things your children will do in the future! I hope you have a great rest of your summer! Sincerely, Mrs. Wagner

SUMMER LEAP UPDATES: Thursday June 21st: Due to the likelihood of rain tomorrow, we will be going to the YMCA in the afternoon instead of them coming to Andrew and providing programming. We will be using the gym and the pool so please bring suits, towels, etc. Friday June 20th: We will still be going to the YMCA to swim as originally scheduled. Please remember to bring suits, towels, and dry clothes. Monday June 25th: We will travel to Rock Creek and would like to remind parents that the pickup time will be 1pm instead of noon to allow us to stay longer due to the travel distance being a little longer than most of our other trips. This place “Rocks” and we want to spent as much time there as possible! Thanks for all of your accommodations and for helping to make Summer Adventure great!
