The meeting to discuss the new reading law and the impact on third grade students has been rescheduled to 6-7 p.m. Feb. 20 at the old gym. Everyone is invited to attend. The 5th and 8th grade writing tests are scheduled for Feb. 26 and must be completed by March 7.

Due to snow days, school will now be in session on Friday, April 25. On Monday, March 31, we will have a snow day. Parents and students are encouraged to meet at the state capitol to express our concerns for educational funding/testing etc. in the state of Oklahoma. This is an opportunity for the people who are affected by education to voice their opinions and is a great opportunity for students to see how our legislature works.

Our next Parent Teacher Organization meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27.


Just a reminder that Lee Webb, is still coming to the Town Hall on Fridays from 11:30 until 12:30 to help Veterans with their benefits. This is a great opportunity for veterans and should be utilized by all that are qualified. Veterans are reminded that they can use their tax exempt card from the state to exempt taxes on their phone bills. Just contact your telephone provider for more details. The OK Department of Veterans Affairs representative will not be coming to Osage County anymore, but Lee Webb will be still doing the Veterans Assistance for this area. Every Friday Lee will be at the Pawhuska Community Center-9 a.m-11a.m., Wynona 11:30a.m.-12:30 p.m. and Hominy from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. and any other towns that need assistance can come to one of these towns to meet with Lee. Remember that the VA Healthcare meets all the requirements for Obamacare, so anyone who does not have their VA Healthcare should come and talk to Lee. Lee wanted to remind everyone that he will also be at Cleveland at the City Hall from 2:30 until 3:30 p.m. on Fridays, as well.


Wynonans offer their condolences to the many family members and friends of Doris Ann Ware, who passed away recently. She had many friends and relatives who will miss her in Wynona.
