SCHOOL NEWS

(from Superintendent Shelley Shulanberger)

Best of luck to our high school basketball teams, which will be playing in districts.

I appreciate all of the parents who attended parent/teacher conferences. Students tend to do much better when they realize their parents and teachers are communicating. If you did not receive a progress report, please contact the school office.

Osage County Health Department will be here certifying people in CPR/First Aid on Thursday, Feb. 16. If you are interested in becoming certified, call Lorrie at 918-846-2467. The session starts at 2 p.m. in the cafeteria.

Earlier in the year, Mrs. Shulanberger had challenged the first- and second-grade students. She told them that if they read 100 books, she would kiss a pig. The students met their goal, so she will be kissing a pig at the End of the Month Assembly for January.

The assembly will be held Friday, Feb. 17, beginning at 2:45 p.m. Way to go first- and second-graders! Keep reading.

There will be no school Monday, Feb. 20, which had been set as a snow day.

The school archery team will participate in a national shoot in Tulsa on Wednesday, Feb. 22. They are so excited. We wish them lots of luck.

The first game starts at 6 p.m. There will be a concession stand available with hotdogs, nachos, walking tacos, pickles, drinks and candy.
