This is RED RIBBON WEEK across USD 353 School District! Here is what it's about!
What a week across our fine community! The SPIRIT is definitely high as we reflect back on all the fun activities enjoyed by our students as they celebrate the upcoming coronation (tonight) of the new WHS DUCHESS!
Congratulations again to this year's candidates: Mekenna Adams, Abby Lowe, Jenna Rausch, Lexi Saffell and Jill Wiley!
LIFE Families Learned about MTSS at LIFE Literacy Night! The parents learned about the MTSS process and how to interpret their children's test scores as well as strategies to improve their learning. Each familiy received a reading kit and information to actively participate in Parent Teacher Conferences.
LIFE had a lot of family fun and bonding during Sessions 3 & 4 of the KRR LIFE Program.
We had guest readers: Mr. Buckendorff WHS Principal during session 3 and Wellington Police Officer Jessie Velasquez for session 4 read to the students.
They played games and received free books, games, and prizes in addition to a sit-down family meal.
Next week is the Literacy Night with special events throughout the evening.
Dr. Mark Whitener, USD 353 Superintendent has released this summary of the Sept. 11, 2017 BOE Meeting. The "Minutes" from that meeting will also be posted once they are approved by the Board at October's meeting.
