WYNONA SCHOOL NOTES

Submitted by

Superintendent Dixie Hurd

Wynona Public Schools would like to thank the Enbridge Corporation for their generous donation of $3,000 to purchase two defibrillators for our school. The plan is that these would be available for community use, as well, should the need arise. We do not have these on the premises yet, but are excited to be able to have them available soon. We appreciate their generosity!

Our Junior High fast-pitch team is doing very well. We are a relatively new team in that we have had to rebuild. These girls have shown tremendous courage in “stepping up to the plate” to learn to pitch or take on other new positions. They have practiced in incredible heat and have stayed strong. We are very proud of our team. We have two home games this week: 4:30 p.m. Sept. 2 against Shidler and 4:30 p.m. Sept. 4, against Bowring. They will then play during the day at Oklahoma Union on Friday. Our final game will be at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 8, at home against Copan, at 4:30. Please come support our team if you can!

Next Friday, Sept. 5, is Grandparents’ Day! We welcome any guests who would like to eat lunch with their special child/children. The cost for the guest’s meal is $3.75. We will also have our book fair at that time. Please call the office at 918-846-2467 to let us know if you plan to attend so we can prepare enough food. Also, please reserve the evening of Sept. 26 for our first parent/student night. We are planning activities concerning reading for students to share with their parents.

Parent conferences will be from 4-7 p.m. Sept. 16 and 18. Please keep one of those dates available to meet with your child’s teacher. It is very important to know how things are going at school before the grades become permanent. There will be no school on Monday, Sept. 22, for a professional day for the teachers. We wish everyone a safe and restful Labor Day!

VETERAN REPRESENTATIVE AT WYNONA TOWN HALL

Lee Webb, VFW Service Officer, is still coming to the Town Hall from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. on Fridays to help veterans with their benefits. Every Friday Lee will be at the Pawhuska Community Center from 9 - 11 a.m., in Wynona from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and in Hominy from 1 - 2 p.m.

HELP WITH CLEAN UP

Wynonans are asked to mow or weed eat around their water meter cans to help the utility workers when they read the meters for billing. They have been working hard to clean up the right of ways on the streets, spraying weed killer around the fire hydrants and intersections. If residents will help out by keeping the areas around the meter cans cleaned out, it will be a great help.
