3rd and 4th Grade Concert October 13 7:00 p.m.

The third and fourth grade will have their fall concert on Tuesday, October 13th at 7:00 p.m. at the East Campus Auditorium. They have worked hard to prepare this musical, "Three of a Kind".  All of the famous trios of our make-believe world will meet up on the same stage at the same time.
In our musical our favorite storybook characters will come alive through the cast members to reinforce the value of being a good listener!

September 4, 2015

We are finishing up the second week of classes with our students. Activities are underway in the junior high and high school. The junior high and high school students are adjusting to their new Chromebooks. It will take a little while to work out some of the kinks.

We want to congratulate Kayne Spooner for receiving a $3775 grant from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation for Sensor and Graphing Analysis Software for the Physics and Chemistry room. Also, congratulations are in order for Don Mordecai for being named Northwest Kansas Outstanding Junior High Music Teacher for 2015. Congratulations to both staff members!

Just a reminder that there will not be classes on Monday, September 7, as we celebrate Labor Day. We will resume classes on Tuesday, September 8.

We want to welcome everyone back to another school year! It should be a very exciting year. Classes are started and will be in full swing this week. Activities will soon be underway in the high school and junior high.

We are very excited about the building project at Eisenhower Elementary, the Junior High, and the High School. Planning is currently underway as our construction manager, Hutton Construction, begins to gather information and work with our architects. We are hoping to let bids this fall for major portions of the project. If we are lucky, we will then see some construction begin after the first of the year.

Although there will some inconveniences and delays, we will have facilities that are much improved over what we have had in the past. When the bond was approved we looked at security and safety as two major factors. This project will address those factors. We will also be doing some major remodeling at the Junior High and at Eisenhower. This work will greatly improve our facilities. We will be gaining much-needed classroom space and better organized and updated administrative areas.

Our faculty and staff are looking forward to a great year. We hope you are as well. If you have any questions please feel free to call us or stop by and visit us here at the district office. Have a great year!
