The photos below show renderings of one of the potential renovations to Paola Middle School that could be included in the potential Bond Proposal in 2023. The potential updates would create a modern multipurpose learning and activity space through a redesign of the current commons area. This is just one of the potential updates for modernization to the middle school. If you are interested in learning more about a potential bond, and what could be included, please visit the school website at www.usd368.org.

Paola Panther Families,
Student Council will be hosting a Christmas Music Bingo Night on Monday Dec. 19th at 6:00pm in the PMS gym. This is a free event but will have concessions to purchase. This event brings our Panther families together during the Christmas season.
We are looking for donations that can be used for prizes. This could range from Gift cards (Restaurants, Walmart, etc.), themed baskets (ie. Movie Basket, Candy Basket, Hot Chocolate Basket, etc.), or a purchased item (ie. Board games, outdoor games, etc.). Anything you can donate will be much appreciated. Please have the items to the school by Friday Dec. 16th.
We had an amazing turn out at our last Bingo Night and are looking forward to carrying on the tradition. We would love to see all Panther families join us for a great night of fun and entertainment.
Thank you, we hope to see you there!
2022-23 Student Council

Kansas Counties Project!
Gifted Hubbard Math
On November 10, nine Paola Middle School students participated in the Hubbard Math competition. Developed as a part of the Hubbard Project at the Center for Science at Kansas State University years ago, this math competition uses the four mathematical operations and single digit numbers to create equations that equal a number selected by a moderator. Each team has 3 minutes to share their equation. After a team successfully creates a mathematical equation, they have to decide whether to forbid or require an operation or a number they just used. The only materials students can use are pencil and paper. The students competed against teams of gifted students from Osawatomie, Central Heights, Pleasanton, Jayhawk, Prairie View, Garnett, and Louisburg. Students who attended the competition from Paola Middle School were: Rosemary Blackie, Cruz Guzman, Emma Johnson, Zach Westwater, Lila Blackie, Will Hardwick, Violet Bennett, Massimo DiMartino, and Declan Bean.
