We are already half way through the third quarter. Parent conferences will be next week on Tuesday, Febr. 11, and Thursday, Feb. 13, from 4 - 7 p.m.

If you have not already done so, please call and make an appointment to meet your child’s teacher to discuss student progress.

Report cards will be handed out to parents at the conferences. The meeting to discuss the new reading law and the impact on 3rd grade students has been rescheduled to February 20, from 6 - 7 p.m., in the old gym.

Everyone is invited to attend. The 5th and 8th grade writing tests are scheduled for February 26.

We have a window to complete them by March 7.

Snow makes it difficult to decide whether or not to have school.

Thanks to Jerry Howerton and the Osage County Shop for grading our streets this week so that they were more passable and safer for driving.

We appreciate all that everyone does to help our schools.

The weather has played with our calendar.

We will have school on Friday, Feb. 14, and Monday, Feb. 17. We will also have school on Friday, April 25.

On Monday, March 31, we will have a snow day.

We are encouraging parents and students to join us 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 a great opportunity for students to see how our legislature works.

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

Please join us if you can. Our students appreciate the support for the baked potato dinner. They were very successful.

Thanks to the Pawhuska Elks Lodge, our community and the surrounding areas for supporting this effort!


Just a reminder that Lee Webb, is still coming to the Town Hall on Fridays from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. 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 11:30 a.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 City Hall from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. on Fridays, as well.
