Dear Students, Parents, and Staff, We have been informed that a stray German shepherd dog has been seen running around Baltic often north of the football field near the shot put area, and all attempts to capture the dog have been unsuccessful. The Humane Society has requested that they be allowed to set a live trap near the shot put area in hopes of capturing the dog. We are informing you of this as we have been told that a child or even small adult could be "caught" in the live trap. It is our understanding the dog or person caught in the trap would not be harmed other than not being able to escape. Parents, please speak with your children about not going near the trap. If anyone has any information about this stray dog or there are issues with the trap including the dog being captured in it, please call the Humane Society at 605-254-4058. Supt. Bob Sittig Estimados estudiantes, padres y personal, Se nos ha informado que se ha visto a un perro pastor alemán callejero corriendo por Baltic, a menudo al norte del campo de fútbol, cerca del área de lanzamiento de peso, y todos los intentos de capturar al perro no han tenido éxito. La Sociedad Protectora de Animales ha solicitado que se les permita colocar una trampa viva cerca del área de lanzamiento de peso con la esperanza de capturar al perro. Le estamos informando de esto ya que nos han dicho que un niño o incluso un adulto pequeño podría ser "atrapado" en la trampa viva. Entendemos que el perro o la persona atrapados en la trampa no sufrirán daños, salvo que no podrán escapar. Padres, hablen con sus hijos sobre no acercarse a la trampa. Si alguien tiene información sobre este perro callejero o si hay problemas con la trampa, incluido el perro capturado en ella, llame a Humane Society al 605-254-4058. superintendente bob sittig

​Hello Baltic Community, As most of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year our volleyball team does a fundraiser to raise money for this cause. This year we are joining the fight against breast cancer with one of our very own, Jennifer Even. Jen is a Baltic graduate, lives in the Baltic School District, taught for many years in our district, and she and her husband Kevin have raised their 3 daughters as Baltic Bulldogs. Hannah graduated in 2018, Emma graduated in 2022, and Sophia is currently a freshman and a member of our volleyball team. Jen's journey to fight this disease will incur many expenses. One fundraiser we would like to do to help offset some of those expenses is to sell t-shirts that say, "together we fight". Shirts can be purchased for $16 using the link below. You must order before 8AM on September 26th. Shirt Order Link Thank you for the support! Baltic Volleyball Team Hola Comunidad Báltica, Como la mayoría de ustedes saben, octubre es el mes de concientización sobre el cáncer de mama. Cada año, nuestro equipo de voleibol realiza una recaudación de fondos para recaudar fondos para esta causa. Este año nos sumamos a la lucha contra el cáncer de mama con una de las nuestras, Jennifer Even. Jen se graduó de Baltic, vive en el Distrito Escolar de Baltic, enseñó durante muchos años en nuestro distrito, y ella y su esposo Kevin han criado a sus 3 hijas como Baltic Bulldogs. Hannah se graduó en 2018, Emma se graduó en 2022 y Sophia actualmente es estudiante de primer año y miembro de nuestro equipo de voleibol. El viaje de Jen para luchar contra esta enfermedad implicará muchos gastos. Una recaudación de fondos que nos gustaría hacer para ayudar a compensar algunos de esos gastos es vender camisetas que digan "juntos luchamos". Las camisas se pueden comprar por $ 16 usando el enlace a continuación. Debe ordenar antes de las 8 a.m. del 26 de septiembre. Enlace de pedido de camisa Gracias por el apoyo!

This is homecoming week, which kicks off with coronation tonight at 7:00pm in the high school gym. Friday is the parade at 1:30pm on Main Street. Anyone who wants to enter a float in the parade may do so via the following link. Homecoming Parade Float Registration Please note, that due to safety concerns, it will no longer be permissible to throw candy or other items from a float, vehicle, etc. Anyone who wants to distribute candy or other items may do so by walking along the parade route and handing or underhand throwing the items. Parade lineup will once again be in the vicinity of the Lutheran Church. The parade route will change however, and go west down Nidaros Ave, turn north on 1st Street, and then turn east and go through Main Street ending up at the football stadium for the pep rally. We are in need of additional convertibles, golf carts, etc. to transport past kings and queens, Hall of Fame inductees, and other honorees in the parade. If you have a such a vehicle you are willing to have it used in the parade, call Carol at 605-529-5461 or email her at carol.wickham@k12.sd.us with your name and the type of vehicle. The vehicle would need to be delivered to the Lutheran Church parking lot by 1:00pm, and could be picked up there immediately following the parade. It would be perfectly fine for the owner of the vehicle, other than students, to drive it in the parade. A reminder that the Fine Arts Boosters will host their annual homecoming supper in the commons before the football game. The Bulldog football team will take on Jim River at 7:00pm, and at half-time, there will be four new inductees in the Baltic HIgh School Hall of Fame. In other athletic action this week, our volleyball team travels to West Central on Tuesday and hosts Flandreau on Thursday. Our cross country team travels to Arlington today for their only meet of the week. Good luck to all our our teams! We hope you will join us for some or all of the homecoming activities. Supt. Bob Sittig Estimados Estudiantes y Padres, Esta es la semana de regreso a casa, que comienza con la coronación esta noche a las 7:00 p. m. en el gimnasio de la escuela secundaria. El viernes es el desfile a la 1:30 pm en Main Street. Quienes deseen participar con una carroza en el desfile pueden hacerlo a través del siguiente enlace. Registro de carrozas para el desfile de regreso a casa Tenga en cuenta que, debido a cuestiones de seguridad, ya no se permitirá arrojar dulces u otros artículos desde una carroza, vehículo, etc. Cualquiera que desee distribuir dulces u otros artículos puede hacerlo caminando por la ruta del desfile y entregando o tirar los artículos por debajo de la mano. La alineación del desfile estará una vez más en las inmediaciones de la Iglesia Luterana. Sin embargo, la ruta del desfile cambiará e irá hacia el oeste por Nidaros Ave, girará hacia el norte en 1st Street y luego girará hacia el este y pasará por Main Street y terminará en el estadio de fútbol para el mitin. Necesitamos convertibles adicionales, carritos de golf, etc. para transportar a los reyes y reinas, miembros del Salón de la Fama y otros homenajeados en el desfile. Si tiene un vehículo de este tipo y está dispuesto a que lo usen en el desfile, llame a Carol al 605-529-5461 o envíele un correo electrónico a carol.wickham@k12.sd.us con su nombre y el tipo de vehículo. El vehículo tendría que ser entregado en el estacionamiento de la Iglesia Luterana a la 1:00 p. m. y podría ser recogido allí inmediatamente después del desfile. Sería perfectamente correcto que el propietario del vehículo, que no sean estudiantes, lo conduzca en el desfile. Un recordatorio de que Fine Arts Boosters organizará su cena anual de bienvenida en los espacios comunes antes del partido de fútbol. El equipo de fútbol Bulldog se enfrentará a Jim River a las 7:00 p. m., y en el medio tiempo, habrá cuatro nuevos miembros en el Salón de la Fama de Baltic HIgh School. En otra acción atlética esta semana, nuestro equipo de voleibol viaja a West Central el martes y recibe a Flandreau el jueves. Nuestro equipo de cross country viaja a Arlington hoy para su única reunión de la semana. ¡Buena suerte a todos nuestros equipos! Esperamos que se una a nosotros para algunas o todas las actividades de bienvenida. superintendente bob sittig
