Please consider becoming involved in our wonderful PTO at Standing Bear. This unique organization does so much for our children.


Hello and welcome to first grade.  My name is Mrs. Loper.  I have been at Standing Bear since the 2006-2007 school year.  Previously, I have taught at Wakonda Elementary with Omaha Public Schools and in Coolidge, Arizona.  I am looking forward to another GREAT year at Standing Bear.
