The district serves approximately 280 students in grades PreK-12. Maxwell and Jamesville Hutterite Colonies fall within the Menno District. In addition to academic classes, the school offers several sports including football, basketball, volleyball, track, and cross country. Vocal and instrumental music, as well as drama, FFA, and FCCLA, are a few of the other options available to students.
Classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards and each student in Grades 2-12 has their own device to use. High School students are able to have their laptop with them 24X7. Technology plays an important part in the education of students at Menno Public Schools with teachers and students using the available tech tools to teach, learn, and collaborate.
The students, staff, school board, and the community at large will work together to develop and maintain high academic standards and strong co-curricular activities enabling students to become productive members of society and lifelong learners.

From the SDHSAA:
In response to Governor Noem's direction of school closure through May 1st, all SDHSAA spring sports practices and competitions are canceled through Sunday, May 3rd.
The SDHSAA Board of Directors met Friday, March 27, to discuss spring activities and the postponed winter events. The guidance we received from the board was to continue planning on holding spring activity events and the postponed winter activities. We will update the Board at the April 21st meeting and are tentatively planning on holding a meeting in early May to evaluate both items above further.
As a reminder, all practices and contests are canceled through May 4th. Please encourage your students to continue social distancing, as that is key to slowing the spread and allowing these events to happen.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
We thank everyone for their patience during this unprecedented period.
