WYNONA SCHOOL NOTES

Submitted by

Superintendent Dixie Hurd

We are promoting a decorating contest for Valentine’s Day. Students are encouraged to decorate the halls. The student whose decoration is voted as the best will win a free lunch. Students who get their name in the bucket for the reading and math incentives at least 15 times between now and the end of April will be invited to a school sleep in.

This quarter is on a roll! Parent conferences will be Feb. 10 and 12. Please contact your child’s teacher to schedule a conference. We hope to conference with someone for all of our students!

The PTO will be selling carnations and candy and pop for Valentine’s Day. Price sheets went home with students and are posted around town. We will gladly sell to community members but we don’t deliver. Orders will be ready to pick up at the school on Friday, Feb. 13. If you would like to order call the office at 918-846-2467.

The state writing tests for 5th and 8th grades and the NAEP tests for 8th grade will be in February.

We welcome Chance Crawford as our newest board member and welcome back Katherine Hollowell. We appreciate all that our board members do for us. Their time for our school is all voluntary. Thank our board members if you see them!

VETERAN REPRESENTATIVE NO LONGER AT WYNONA TOWN HALL

Lee Webb, Veterans Representative, has announced that he will not, at this time, be keeping regular hours at the Wynona Town Hall. If veterans need his help, they can call 918-833-0685. He will be in Cleveland from 9-11 and Bartlesville from 1-3 on Mondays.

BLOOD PRESSURE CLINIC REMINDER

The Osage Home Health has been coming to Wynona Town Hall for quite some time now to take Blood Pressure and Blood Sugars. She comes on the first of the month or the first day that follows if the first comes on a weekend. We appreciate the Osage Home Health for helping out our town.

CONDOLENCES

Wynonans also offer their condolences to the many family members and friends of longtime Wynona resident, Harold Walker. Mr. Walker was a bus driver for many years in Wynona and worked in the oilfields in the Wynona area. He was also a longtime member of the Assembly of God Church in Wynona. He was a good man and we will all miss him.

TRASH RATE INCREASE

Once again, a reminder that the Wynona trash rates have increased. It was supposed to go up 50 cents annually and several years have passed without an increase. The Trash Service, J C & Sons, requested that the town charge a straight across $12.49 with everyone having a polycart. The perk to this new increase is that we will now have a roll-off all the time, not just once a year for the town’s clean up days. The roll off dumpster is for Wynona trash paying customers only. Anyone caught dumping trash that cannot prove that they pay utilities in Wynona will be subject to fines. Trash still needs to be bagged and the pick up day is the same.
