A BIG BUFFALO THANK YOU to all our Veterans.  We appreciate your dedication and commitment to our country through your service in the US military. 

A BIG BUFFALO THANK YOU to the Satanta Arts Council, Satanta School District, and the Wichita Children’s Theatre!  Each year we have been invited to Satanta to attend special theatrical performances.  This year our Kindergarten through 3rd grade students will enjoy Three Billy Goats Gruff.  Our 4th-6th grade students will be entertained with Tom Sawyer.  We appreciate Satanta generously inviting us to share in such a great theater experience. 

Christmas is not far away and it is never too early to start shopping for that special person.  Our MES/MJH Library has you covered.  They will host their fall semester Scholastic Book Fair this week.  The book fair will take place Monday through Thursday from 8:00am until 4:00pm in the MES/MJH Library.  In addition they will have a special shopping time Tuesday evening from 5:30-7:30pm.   During this time our PTO will host a $2.00 per person spaghetti dinner in the MES/MJH cafeteria. The public is invited to shop at our Book Fair and enjoy a delicious spaghetti supper.  The proceeds from the book fair will be used to keep our library updated with great books for entertaining and learning.  We appreciate your support!

Our MJH Basketball teams begin their season this week.  They will host the Elkhart Wildcats Thursday.  The Lady Buffs will play at the DP Gym.  The Buffaloes’ game will take place at MHS.  Tip-off is set for 4:30pm.  Everyone is invited to attend the games and cheer our teams to a season-opening win.

REMINDERS:  This week is the KSHSAA Buffer Week.  The following information regarding Buffer Week can be found in the KSHSAA handbook.

Noon hour and physical education classes are considered part of the school day.
