Since 2006, Moody’s Mega Math (M3) Challenge (http://m3challenge.siam.org) has become the online math modeling competition known for inspiring high school juniors and seniors to pursue STEM majors and careers, awarding nearly one million dollars in scholarships to date! The contest is open to U.S. students everywhere, and is endorsed by the NASSP since 2010; the contest will award scholarships totaling $150,000 this year.
Cowley College is proposing to build a Sumner County campus to offer classes close to home to our students. The campus will be funded by a proposed 1/2 cent sales tax, which will be voted on by the registered voters in Sumner County at the November 8 general election. For more information on this proposed campus, see the Superintendent's page under the District tab.
If your student is absent from school for any reason, a phone call or note from a parent or guardian is required for the absence to be an excused absence. If your student needs to leave school early and will be driving themselves OR be picked up by someone other than a parent or guardian, you will need to call the school in advance for the student to leave early with that person.
If you have any questions, please call the high school office at 620-892-5215 X2.
School will begin at 8:00 a.m. and will dismiss at 3:40 p.m. each day. Parents...please DO NOT send your children to school before 7:45 a.m. Students will not be supervised except from 7:45 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. when teachers will be on duty.

Second Annual Muffins with Moms is October 5.
October 5, 2015 from 7:30-8:30 AM in the lunch room, elementary students and their moms (or grandmas, friends, or big sisters), will celebrate the second annual Muffins with Mom. This is when all of our moms come to our school and spend time with us to share muffins, coffee, juice and read stories. If someone cannot come for your child, they will be matched up with a high school student. Moms can bring a book or we will have some available for you to read with your child. We hope all elementary moms will join us for this reading event. More information will be coming home with your child soon.
