They work hard, have great attendance, and are all-around GREAT HUMANS!! WE ARE SO PROUD OF THEM!! The STAR awards presented to USD 390 by the KSDE were as follows: Academically Prepared for Graduation- exceeded the state average for the number of students scoring high marks on the state assessment for Math/ Science/English.

Sept. is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month—a time to raise awareness of this stigmatized, and often taboo, topic. Together we shift public perception, spread hope and share vital information with people affected by suicide. Our goal is to ensure that individuals, friends, and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention and seek help. Tomorrow we highlight the “Together for Mental Health” campaign which encourages people to bring their voices together to advocate for better mental health care, including an effective crisis response system. Plan to join us for a "Community That Cares" one-mile walk beginning at 2:45 in the south parking lot of our school!
