Welcome to Hiawatha Jr/Sr High School

Mr. Powers

Welcome back to another school year! We are excited to have our students join us for their learning experience both in-person and remotely!

It is a tremendous honor and privilege to serve as your child’s building administrator for Hiawatha Jr/Sr High. While we are in a very unique and trying time during our current pandemic, I have confidence that our staff will be able to provide your child with a challenging, yet gratifying education in a safe environment. We aim to instill values in our students that they will take with them beyond their schooling. We encourage our students to be an advocate for their education and take ownership of their learning experience. We also ask our students to be involved in organizations and extracurricular activities to enjoy their time at Hiawatha CUSD #426 to the greatest extent. We encourage our parents to reach out to the teachers here at Hiawatha Jr/Sr High School with any questions or concerns. Our school will be successful with great collaboration and teamwork between our students, parents, teachers and administrators.

While this school year may be challenging at times for not only our students and teachers, it could be challenging for us as parents as well. We will strive to provide you with answers to help you engage in your child’s learning. We are committed to enhancing our curriculum through a 1:1 technology initiative that is new to our district this year and promises to bring more resources to the table for both our students and teachers.

We appreciate your support through the course of the year and look forward to seeing your children soon!

Sincerely,

Mr. Powers

I am very excited to join the team at Hiawatha as the 6-12 Dean of Students and Athletic Director! We are beyond excited that our students are able to begin competing in the sports and activities that they love. Although it may look a little different this year, we will work hard to ensure that everyone stays safe, to keep our kids playing and active, and to provide opportunities for parents and families to support their students at Hiawatha events.


I very much look forward to continuing to get to know our students, families, and communities. Through these partnerships, we can ensure that we are providing our students with the best possible experience at Hiawatha Jr/Sr High School. We appreciate your continued support! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at ben.owen@d426.org.

Best Regards,

Mr. Owen
