KWIK TRIP is changing the way customers pay for fuel
There will no longer be a “Pay Inside” prompt out at the pump as of January 3rd.
Can a guest use gift cards to Prepay or Pay-at-the-Pump for fuel?
  • Gift cards are a great method of payment for our guests as they avoid any pre-authorization fees and the guest will be charged for the specific amount pumped right away.
  • If a guest overpays with a prepay inside the store, the actual fuel amount that is pumped will be the only charge to the gift card.

You may also go inside, purchase coffee, donuts, etc. and then prepay for fuel at the register at the same time as check out.

The pump will be authorized to shut off for the amount you specify, and you can simply leave when done fueling.

If you've estimated more $$ than what you actually pump, the balance will remain on the gift card for the next visit.  NO need to come back inside.

These changes were made so the Kwik Trip employees could give their full attention to customers (guests) at their registers.


Students in the 4/5 classroom again participated in the Mid-Morning Kiwanis Club Food Drive this year.    Numberous posters throughout the building, as well as morning announcements, helped in the success of this drive.

Students took turns during homeroom time to collect items and distribute raffle tickets for next week's drawing.  

 Thank you to the many families that contributed to this drive!  These items directly impact families in our community.
