Here's some pictures from the afternoon preschool.
Here's some of the morning preschool from their first day of school!
Yesterday, the fourth grade did a teamwork/problem solving activity call Save Fred. They had to rescue Fred (a gummy worm) from his capsized boat (the cup) and get his life preserver (a gummy lifesaver) around him so he wouldn't drown in the ocean (the top of the desk). They only used the tools they were given (four paperclips!). The two boys were the first of the class to do so!
First Friday means thumbs up from the fifth grade!
We hope everyone had a great first day! And we have great news! The Back to School BBQ is back! Next Thursday, August 25th, come celebrate the start of a new year. Once again, there will be a free hotdog meal to those that attend and both middle and high school fall sports teams will be introduced! Come join in on the fun!
Wanted to give recognition and say congratulations to Zach Allee for playing in the band at the Kansas Shrine Bowl. We would also like to say thank you to the Savonburg Virginia Lodge No. 315 for sponsoring Zach Allee giving him this great opportunity. Zach practiced on Tuesday July 19th and played at the Shrine Bowl at Pitt State on Saturday July 23rd. This was a great experience for Zach and he along with USD 256 are very appreciative for the opportunity.
216 student leaders from across the state of Kansas gathered at Rock Springs 4-H Center, Junction City, July 25-29, for a session of KAY (Kansas Association for Youth) Leadership Camp. The KAY program is a character-building, leadership-training, service organization directed by the Kansas State High School Activities Association and is designed for all students in grades 6-12. The camp theme this summer was "Service with Purpose"! At KLC, campers were provided a memorable time as they discovered their potential to make a difference as well as the rewards in serving others. Student campers had the opportunity to develop lifetime leadership skills, make lasting friendships across the state, experience a sense of responsibility and pride as they serve, and develop an attitude of doing for others because it's the right thing to do! Pictured are KAY Officers Jaiden Emmons, Roslyn Houk, Madi Lawson, Brooklyn Adams, and Payton Scharff.
We are looking forward to seeing you!!!!!

The Royals game is on Wednesday 8/10; for those that have made the attendance milestone. We will leave the school at around 3. The stadium does not accept cash so you will have to have another way to pay for concessions etc. The game is at 7 so it will be a late night. Probably get home around midnight.
