It has come to our attention that the link to the on-line spirit wear sale that went out in a message yesterday was incorrect and it showed the site was closed. In case that affected anyone trying to order, the on-line store has been reopened and will close at 11:59pm tonight. Immediately below is the correct link. Winter Spirit Wear Sale Nos ha llamado la atención que el enlace a la venta de ropa de espíritu en línea que salió en un mensaje ayer era incorrecto y mostraba que el sitio estaba cerrado. En caso de que afectó a cualquiera que intente realizar un pedido, la tienda en línea ha sido reabierta y cerrará a las 11:59 pm de esta noche. Inmediatamente debajo está el enlace correcto. Este es un recordatorio de que la fecha límite para pedir ropa de espíritu de invierno es este domingo 31 de octubre a las 11:59 pm. No demore el pedido o perderá esta oportunidad. Vea abajo para más información. Our Fall / Winter Spirit Wear store is officially open..... we are opening it a little earlier than usual, since supply and demand on some items are taking a little longer than expected and this way if we get the orders in now, we will hopefully have the items in hand in time for the 1st games..... The Spirit Wear store is open NOW thru midnight, Oct. 31st., again, NO exceptions as that will delay the orders even more than predicted. When ordering, if our wonderful Bulldog supporters see something they like, they just have to click on the item, then in the next screen to the right of the item, there is a drop down that states "Choose Design". This is where they will choose a new Generic Baltic Bulldogs logo, or a mens/womens basketball logo. As they choose their logo option, the image will change so that they know they are ordering the correct logo that they prefer. There are specific items notated on the site that they will take longer to arrive, just so that everyone is aware that those particular items will arrive at a later date. Thanks again and here's to another successful Spirit wear shopping season...... Estimados estudiantes, padres y personal: Nuestra tienda Otoño / Invierno Spirit Wear está oficialmente abierta ... la abriremos un poco antes de lo habitual, ya que la oferta y la demanda de algunos artículos están demorando un poco más de lo esperado y de esta manera si recibimos los pedidos ahora, con suerte tendremos los artículos en la mano a tiempo para los primeros juegos ..... La tienda Spirit Wear está abierta AHORA hasta la medianoche del 31 de octubre, nuevamente, SIN excepciones, ya que eso retrasará los pedidos incluso más de lo previsto. Al hacer el pedido, si nuestros maravillosos seguidores de Bulldog ven algo que les gusta, solo tienen que hacer clic en el elemento, luego, en la siguiente pantalla a la derecha del elemento, hay un menú desplegable que dice "Elegir diseño". Aquí es donde elegirán un nuevo logotipo genérico de Baltic Bulldogs o un logotipo de baloncesto para hombre / mujer. A medida que eligen su opción de logotipo, la imagen cambiará para que sepan que están solicitando el logotipo correcto que prefieren. Hay artículos específicos anotados en el sitio que tardarán más en llegar, solo para que todos sepan que esos artículos en particular llegarán en una fecha posterior. Gracias de nuevo y por otra exitosa temporada de compras de ropa Spirit ... https://hauffsports.chipply.com/balticbasketball/ Club de refuerzo atlético báltico

Dear Students, Parents and Staff, I would like to congratulate our varsity volleyball players and coaches on an outstanding 18-6 regular season, which earned them the fourth seed in the region, only .05 points behind third seed Madison. The team will now move on to region competition on Tuesday, November 2nd against McCook Central-Montrose at approximately 7:30pm at Baltic. Due to an official shortage, the match may start later than 7:30pm, but it will not start ealier than 7:30pm. This is a region match, which means it technically is a "state event," so state rules will apply. The cost of admission is $6 for adults and $4 for K-12 students, and activity tickets or conference passes will not be honored, so everyone must pay the price of admission. Good luck Lady Bulldogs! Supt. Bob Sittig Estimados estudiantes, padres y personal: Me gustaría felicitar a nuestros jugadores y entrenadores universitarios de voleibol por una destacada temporada regular de 18-6, que les valió el cuarto sembrado en la región, solo .05 puntos detrás del tercer sembrado Madison. El equipo ahora pasará a la competencia regional el martes 2 de noviembre contra McCook Central-Montrose aproximadamente a las 7:30 pm en Baltic. Debido a una escasez oficial, el partido puede comenzar después de las 7:30 pm, pero no comenzará antes de las 7:30 pm. Esta es una coincidencia de región, lo que significa que técnicamente es un "evento estatal", por lo que se aplicarán las reglas estatales. El costo de admisión es de $ 6 para adultos y $ 4 para estudiantes de K-12, y no se aceptarán boletos para actividades ni pases para conferencias, por lo que todos deben pagar el precio de admisión. ¡Buena suerte, Lady Bulldogs! Supt. Bob Sittig

Dear Parents, Each year, the district convenes a Food Service Advisory Committee (FSAC) that meets with representatives from our Food Service Management Company to address concerns and offer suggestions for program improvement. The FSAC is comprised of students, parents and school staff, and usually meets one time for about an hour. This year's FSAC meeting will be November 9th at 7:00pm via Zoom. If you are willing to serve on the FSAC, please email Business Manager Marsha Polzin at marsha.polzin@k12.sd.us. We recognize November 9th is the date of the volleyball SoDak 16, and if our volleyball team qualifies for the SoDak 16, we will move the FSAC meeting. Let's hope we need to move the FSAC meeting! Supt. Bob Sittig Queridos padres, Cada año, el distrito convoca un Comité Asesor de Servicios de Alimentos (FSAC) que se reúne con representantes de nuestra Compañía de Administración de Servicios de Alimentos para abordar inquietudes y ofrecer sugerencias para mejorar el programa. La FSAC está compuesta por estudiantes, padres y personal de la escuela, y generalmente se reúne una vez durante aproximadamente una hora. La reunión de FSAC de este año será el 9 de noviembre a las 7:00 pm a través de Zoom. Si está dispuesto a formar parte del FSAC, envíe un correo electrónico a la Gerente Comercial Marsha Polzin a marsha.polzin@k12.sd.us. Reconocemos que el 9 de noviembre es la fecha del SoDak 16 de voleibol, y si nuestro equipo de voleibol califica para el SoDak 16, trasladaremos la reunión de FSAC. ¡Esperemos que tengamos que mover la reunión del FSAC! Supt. Bob Sittig

Dear Parents, To promote two-way communication between the school and parents, we form a Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) that meets 2-3 times throughout the school year. At the PAC meetings, the administration presents information to parents on various topics and gets feedback, and parents have the opportunity to ask questions about topics or concerns of general interest. It should be noted that the PAC meetings are not a time to ask questions or address concerns about specific students or staff. Parents are asked to serve on the PAC for two years, so each year we have half of the PAC serving their second year and half serving their first year. Of course, if a parent is not interested in serving a second year, we will find a replacement, but the experience must not be too painful as most return for the second year. Please email me at Robert.sittig@k12.sd.us if you are interested in serving on the PAC. We are looking for five new PAC members, and if we have more interest than spots, members will be selected to have a good cross-section of K-12 parents. The meetings are usually held on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday at 6:30 or 7:00pm and usually last 1.5 hours. Once we have the PAC members set, we will determine the date of the first meeting, which we hope to hold in late October or early November. Thank you for considering participation on the PAC. Supt. Bob Sittig Queridos padres, Para promover la comunicación bidireccional entre la escuela y los padres, formamos un Comité Asesor de Padres (PAC) que se reúne 2-3 veces durante el año escolar. En las reuniones del PAC, la administración presenta información a los padres sobre varios temas y recibe comentarios, y los padres tienen la oportunidad de hacer preguntas sobre temas o inquietudes de interés general. Cabe señalar que las reuniones del PAC no son un momento para hacer preguntas o abordar inquietudes sobre estudiantes o personal específicos. Se les pide a los padres que sirvan en el PAC durante dos años, por lo que cada año tenemos la mitad del PAC en su segundo año y la otra mitad en el primer año. Por supuesto, si un padre no está interesado en cumplir un segundo año, encontraremos un reemplazo, pero la experiencia no debe ser demasiado dolorosa ya que la mayoría regresa para el segundo año. Por favor envíeme un correo electrónico a Robert.sittig@k12.sd.us si está interesado en servir en el PAC. Estamos buscando cinco nuevos miembros del PAC, y si tenemos más interés que lugares, los miembros serán seleccionados para tener una buena muestra representativa de padres de K-12. Las reuniones generalmente se llevan a cabo los lunes, martes o jueves a las 6:30 o 7:00 pm y generalmente duran 1,5 horas. Una vez que tengamos los miembros del PAC establecidos, determinaremos la fecha de la primera reunión, que esperamos tener a fines de octubre o principios de noviembre. Gracias por considerar la participación en el PAC. Supt. Bob Sittig

Baltic community and very specifically Fine Arts parents/guardians, On behalf of the Fine Arts Boosters, Kelley Tschetter, and myself, we want you to be aware that we are putting on a Madrigal Fundraiser the first weekend in December. First, what's a Madrigal? A Renaissance-themed Christmas dinner theatre performance. And we are doing 3 performances: Saturday night at 6pm, Sunday at noon, and Sunday evening at 6. To make this a success, we are going to need your help! We have 12 main adult singers from the community, but we need a variety of other people to help pull this thing off . If we sell out all three shows, we will need 24 kids to serve the meal. Ideally, if your student is in art, chorus, band, yearbook, or any theatre activity, they would help serve the meal. We will potentially have 32 tables (6 people per table); therefore 24 servers are needed. Your child may be asked to play their instrument or sing as well. If so, they could potentially still serve the meal, but wouldn't need to feel quite as obligated. Could other kids (thinking middle school and up) help serve? Absolutely. Please let tara.melmer@k12.sd.us know if your child is willing and we will get details out to those participating as soon as possible. Yes, we will "train" them, practice, etc. Not a lot, but enough that they'll feel comfortable with the task. Not only do we want servers, we want EVERYONE to attend. Keep part of your December 4-5 weekend open!!! Those details will be coming soon! THANKS!
