Welcome the the 2012-13 school year. It is going to be another great year for USD 226! MES/MJH will host their annual Open House on Tuesday, August 14th beginning at 7:00pm and ending at 8:00pm. We hope to see you there!

All of our sports practices are in full swing! Our tennis courts are getting a great, new face lift. Although the courts were not ready for the first day of practice they should be ready soon. A big THANKS to SWH for letting our tennis girls practice on their courts until ours can be used. Don't forget to mark your calendars for the annual Buffalo Bonanza on Friday, August 24th. All rec teams, junior high, and high school teams will be recognized. For more information please refer to the "Mark Your Calendars" article on the front page of our website.
