SCHOOL NEWS

(Submitted by Wynona School Superintendent Shelley Shulanberger)

Our students started selling Little Lambs Cookie Dough on Monday, so please watch for order forms. Money earned from the sale will purchase rewards and pay for field trips for the students. We appreciate everyone’s support.

The ninth- through 12th-grade students will travel to Pawhuska for the Osage Nation College Fair on Thursday. They will leave at noon and return at 3 p.m. This is a great opportunity for our high school students to learn information about colleges. Now is the time to start preparing for adulthood.

There is no school Friday.

State testing will begin next week, April 3-7). Please encourage your children to review what they’ve learned throughout the year, and have them practice their reading and math skills.

I would like to announce that the 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year is Mrs. Boe. Congratulations, Mrs. Boe!

PITCH IN, LEASH UP

Wynonans are asked to help keep the town clean by picking up trash on their streets and in the alleyways. We want to show visitors that we are proud of our town.

Citizens also are asked to keep their dogs fenced or on a leash. There have been numerous complaints lately about dogs running at large and causing problems. A couple of these loose dogs have been aggressive towards local homeowners who are trying to protect their family and pets. Please keep animals confined!

TRUSTEES MEET

The Wynona Board of Trustees held a regular meeting Tuesday, March 21.

Mayor Johnnie Lott, Trustee Goober Robinson, Trustee Nancy Deatherage and Treasurer Janet Delaney were sworn in by Town Clerk Tennie Slone. All were unopposed in the 2017 elections and will continue to serve in their same capacity.

Board members again discussed Founders Day. They decided that if no one stepped up to be Chairperson, this year’s event would be cancelled. (UPDATE: Since the meeting, Crala Marlin and Amanda Stansberry have agreed to serve as Founders Day 2017 Co-Chairs.)

The board voted to accept bids on a Ditch Witch that is no longer being used. Bids will be opened at the next meeting.

Tennie Slone reported on work that’s under way to get the local storm sirens ready for the spring storm season. As soon as the all the sirens are up, they will be tested on a regular basis, weather-permitting.

Persons attending the meeting included Donna Swanner, Tonya Holt, Loretta Little, Goober Robinson, Nancy Deatherage, Della Carter, Johnnie Lott, Janet Delaney and Tennie Slone.
