WHEW! The first week of school flew by! It was a great week, teachers and kids were both excited and had a great time!

I would like to recognize Big Country Pawn and Supply (The Bucking Flamingo) for the elementary school desks, Wynona Assembly of God Church for the school supplies, and Dick Conner Correctional Center for the donation to purchase school supplies for our students and teachers. We have had an outstanding amount of donations and participation from our community and surrounding communities in providing a relief of a financial burden to our parents and students. We cannot say THANK YOU enough to everyone that provided our students with school supplies.

Monday, we had a positive behavior assembly in the new gym.

Wednesday, Aug. 16, Prevent Blindness will be conducting vision screenings. If your child fails the screening, you will receive a letter in the mail with the results. Please follow up with an optometrist.

Students attending TCC concurrent classes will attend orientation on Wednesday, August 16 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in Tulsa.

Marcella Mays was the winner of the pistol raffled by the Wynona Fire Department at the Benefit held for Patty Hollowell Lott’s family. The Fire Department would like to thank all the people and businesses who helped with money or goods donations to make our benefit work. Finally, we would like to thank all of the people who donated their time in preparing for and during the benefit as none of it would have been possible without them.
