Back to School Night is Aug. 3. It will begin in the cafeteria at 5:30 p.m., snacks will be available. From 6- 7 p.m. students and families will have the opportunity to meet and greet their teachers and put their supplies in the classroom. We are very excited and fortunate to provide our students with most of their school supplies this year with help from our community! Osage Nation Prevention Office will have inflatables and a water slide available for students and families from 6-8 p.m., and will show “Smurfs” at 9 p.m.. Make plans now to attend the fun-filled night!

I would like to THANK Caitlin Ware, Michael Adams, Lorrie, Sam, Rylee, and Mason Young for painting the classroom door trims in the high school building.

A THANK YOU goes out to Shawn Dilley for painting the trim in the high school building.

A THANKS goes out to Justin Horton for assembling lockers and to Daniel King for working on a door jam in the administrative office during enrollment when our maintenance crew was busy with other tasks!

We have had many helpful hands over the summer with all of our updates, we are so excited and can’t wait for the students to see the changes. We couldn’t have completed all of the tasks without the help of Troy Harper, Melanie Toon, Jason Richmond, James Gillett, Kyle Montgomery, and Youth Works. You ALL have done an awesome job this summer!!

A HUGE THANK YOU to Larry Dilley and Michael Hopper for unloading 22 TONS of rubber mulch for our new playground equipment. If anyone would like to volunteer to help spread the mulch out, we would greatly appreciate it! I would like to thank Tulsa Recyclers for donating 2 tons of the rubber mulch. WARNING: your child may come home dirty from the new mulch at the beginning of the school year!

We have an awesome, helpful, and greedless community that want to help our students succeed in their educational career, thank you, thank you!!!

The softball girls have a scrimmage at 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4 in Hominy. Aug. 7 will be our first home game beginning at 4:30 p.m. Just a reminder admission cost is $5 for adults and $3 for students. Parking is NOT allowed on the east side of the school building or field along the highway. Parking is permitted in the high school parking lot only! A small concession will be available.

I hope everyone enjoys the last official week of summer!!! See you bright eyed and bushy tailed on Aug. 7!



In an effort to keep speeding, loitering, burglary, dogs at large, etc at bay, the Wynona Board of Trustees opted to hire another part-time officer. Mike Copeland from Hominy will be working part time with the department. He is an experienced officer, having been in law enforcement for many years. We are happy to have him join our force of Chief Harold Hughs, Officers John W Ferguson and Brendan O’Driscoll. Welcome aboard, Mike!
