What's Happening at USD 226

Picture Day is Monday!  Packets have been sent home.  However, if yours has been misplaced, extras are available in both offices. Orders and payments are due at the time the pictures are taken.  There is also the option to order the photos online by going to mylifetouch.com.  The MES/MJH Picture Day ID is BP808069Q0  The Picture Day ID for MHS is BP808070Q0.

This year we are excited to be greeted each morning by our smiling 6th grade students. As part of their leadership project, two 6th grade students will be stationed at the front of our school to open the door and greet students, parents, and visitors.  It is great to see our students step up to take on leadership roles and practice important social skills. 

Our MHS Band is excited to perform at the Kansas State Fair, Wednesday, September 12th. Our talented group will perform two songs for adjudication in the Bretz & Young Arena at 10:00 am. Several of our Band members have never attended the fair, so this will be a new and exciting experience for them. After the performance, our students will have time to visit exhibits, play games, enjoy carnival rides, and eat the many different combinations of fried foods! Our MHS Band has not performed at the Kansas State Fair in many years.  Mr. Haynes, MHS Band Instructor, is happy to have our band return to the fair to share their talents. In all approximately 100 Bands will delight fair-goers over a period of three days. 

Our own Monica Gleason has been invited to perform her State Forensic piece at the Kansas State Fair.  The fair has invited medalists from the 2018 State Forensics Championships to perform their winning pieces.  Monica earned a 4th place finish with her Humorous Solo.  She will perform Thursday, September 13th at 1:00pm in the Hansen Auditorium in the Encampment Building. 

What is better than Friday Night Football? Friday Night Football with a FREE tailgate party! The SCCC Admissions team will be hosting a free tailgate party, beginning at 6:00pm, for all the fans attending the MHS vs. SWH game. The tailgate includes hamburgers, hot dogs, and all the fixings. SCCC will also have an informational table set up so you can ask questions and learn more about how they can be a great place to begin a college education.

USD 226 strives to educate the whole child, not just provide each student with a firm academic foundation.  We understand the importance of character education.  This year our MES students are off to a great start with our new social-emotional learning curriculum. They are having fun time welcoming their new classroom puppet friends while strengthening their social skills.  

A BIG BUFFALO THANK YOU  to all our alumni who have so willingly completed our mentoring survey.  We are excited about the learning opportunities and experiences Career Cruising offers our students.  Your willingness to be a part of the process is greatly appreciated.  If you are an MHS Alumni, we would love for you to share your time and talents with our students.
