Our week to be GRITful starts tomorrow! Check out the dress up days and each days goal. #BulldogGRIT
The girls basketball game scheduled for today has been canceled for the bottom 4 seeds which includes Baltic. The other teams are not able to travel and don't feel safe sending their athletes this afternoon and evening. Therefore, the 7th and 8th place finish between Parker and Baltic will be decided based on our game coming up on February 3rd at home. Therefore, with the past boys basketball cancellation and this situation there will be no basketball games played today for our teams. Thank you for understanding and stay safe today. Edward Clark
Congratulations to Miss Whipple’s 2nd graders on their job well done at their animal museum. For the month of January, they prepared their speeches, costumes, posters, containers, and informational books. Their informational books were full of information they researched. Today they presented their speech to JK-5 grade students and community memebers. Each time someone placed a nickel in their jar, they read their speech about their animal. They raised $291.57 for our local food bank!
Students in Miss Whipple’s class enjoyed their math Glow Day! They played Jenga, spoons, tic tac toe, and bowling. During each of those games they reviewed counting money, telling time, writing different numbers using place value, ordering numbers from least to greatest, and comparing numbers.
This week kicks off with a bunch of events and finishes with the Girl’s Big East Conference in Salem and Volga. We also have our youth basketball programs happening on Sundays from 5 to 7 pm, if you still want to get involved in any way please reach out and email Edward Clark. See you all at an activity and hopefully more than one. Go Bulldogs!
Hi everyone and happy Friday! My name is Kyra Haak and I wanted to send out a quick reminder that the Baltic One Act Play students will be performing for the community TOMORROW NIGHT (Jan. 21st) at 7 pm! If you want to make an evening of it, the Fine Arts Boosters will also be hosting a dinner beforehand! ALL DETAILS CAN BE FOUND ON THE ATTACHMENT :) Our show, Whispers, deals with young people who are in varying states of their parental loss and how they are dealing with the immense weight that comes with that. Unfortunately, this is a story that hits home for a lot of people in our country. I look forward to seeing our community come together in the support of the Baltic Theater Department.

Here is the breakdown for this week in Baltic Bulldog Activities and Events.
Tonight's high school boys basketball game at Dell Rapids has been postponed and has been rescheduled for Friday, January 13th. The Baltic School Board meeting scheduled for 5:30pm tonight will be held as scheduled. Supt. Bob Sittig El juego de baloncesto masculino de la escuela secundaria de esta noche en Dell Rapids se pospuso y se reprogramó para el viernes 13 de enero. La reunión de la Junta Escolar de Baltic programada para las 5:30 p. m. de esta noche se llevará a cabo según lo programado. superintendente bob sittig
Dear Students, Parents, and Staff, As you know, there is no school in Baltic today. There is a basketball doubleheader scheduled for tonight at Baltic beginning at 4pm vs. Beresford. Typically, when there is no school there are no events, but that is not a hard policy and is determined on a case-by-case basis. The major factor in calling off school was that we did not think township roads would be plowed by the time busses would have left the bus barn shortly after 9am. We think there is a good possibility that most roads will be plowed in time for a 4pm basketball game, so we are not ready to make a decision on the game tonight. We will make a decision by noon whether to have the doubleheader tonight, and send out another message with that decision. Please be advised, however, that even if we do have the games tonight, the cheer clinic and fine arts boosters' fundraiser meal will not be held tonight and will be rescheduled. Second, a reminder that on this year's school calendar, it was noted that the first makeup day would be Easter Monday. Therefore, please be advised that there will now be school on Monday, April 10. Any future snow days will be made up by adding days to the end of the school year. Supt. Bob Sittig Estimados estudiantes, padres y personal, Como saben, hoy en día no hay escuela en Baltic. Hay una doble cartelera de baloncesto programada para esta noche en Baltic a partir de las 4 p. m. contra Beresford. Por lo general, cuando no hay escuela no hay eventos, pero esa no es una política estricta y se determina caso por caso. El factor principal para cancelar la escuela fue que no pensábamos que las carreteras del municipio estarían limpias para cuando los autobuses salieran del establo poco después de las 9 am. Creemos que existe una buena posibilidad de que la mayoría de los caminos estén abiertos a tiempo para un partido de baloncesto a las 4 p. m., por lo que no estamos listos para tomar una decisión sobre el partido de esta noche. Tomaremos una decisión para el mediodía si celebraremos la doble cartelera esta noche y enviaremos otro mensaje con esa decisión. Tenga en cuenta, sin embargo, que incluso si tenemos los juegos esta noche, la clínica de porristas y la comida para recaudar fondos para los promotores de las bellas artes no se llevarán a cabo esta noche y se reprogramarán. En segundo lugar, un recordatorio de que en el calendario escolar de este año se señaló que el primer día de recuperación sería el lunes de Pascua. Por lo tanto, tenga en cuenta que ahora habrá clases el lunes 10 de abril. Cualquier día de nieve en el futuro se compensará agregando días al final del año escolar. superintendente bob sittig

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
