The old west, a time when cattle roamed free, cowboys walked the streets and outlaws lurked in every corner.  But not to fear when you have Deputy Jan.. right?  Unfortunately, Deputy Jan is a coward and lets all the outlaws escape.  When the Sheriff tells Jan that she needs to catch the next outlaws or else, Jan sets out to take on the most notorious outlaws in the West:  Hombre and Millie Nair.  Will Jan find her bravery and save the day or will Hombre and Millie Nair get their big heist?

Inside Story on Careers

One of the state board of education KANSAS CAN goals is for all JH and HS students to have an individual plan of study that helps them prepare for college and careers.  South Haven is using Career Cruising to help students learn about careers, think about their post high school options, and plan for life after 12th grade.  Students are working in advisory groups during one or two Cardinal Times a month as part of this state wide initiative to ensure students have the necessary skills and plans to be successful after graduation. Students can login to Career Cruising at home using the link on the front page of the website, or on their school page. The link below contains more information about Career Cruising.
