October Newsletter 2021


Dear Axtell Community School Members,


It is hard to believe that we are over a month into school already. Our students and staff are off to another great year at Axtell. We just finished our parent teacher conferences for the fall and want to thank everyone for being able to make it out. We appreciate the support you show for our students and staff throughout the year.


Here are a few upcoming things taking place:

· October 7th, we have picture retakes.

· October 8th, we have Flu shots available. Please make sure all paperwork is brought in.

· October 15th is the end of the 1st quarter.

· October is a busy month for activities. Good luck to all our teams as conference and post season play begin.

· No School on October 29th & November 1st for fall break.


Our staff does a great job of sharing our own story here at Axtell using our Twitter and Facebook accounts. If you do not follow us on either account look us up under Axtell Community Schools.


We look forward to serving our students, staff, and patrons. If you have any questions please stop in or shoot me an email at jeff.schwartz@axtellwildcats.org


Thank You,



Mr. Jeff Schwartz
