Kindergarten Round Up is March 24 at 5:30 pm

We are thrilled to have your child join us for Kindergarten Roundup in USD 232! Going to Kindergarten is an exciting time for not only the child, but the parents as well.

Your first step is Kindergarten Roundup
Make plans to attend Kindergarten Roundup and Parent Information Night in March 2020. Parents will have the opportunity to begin the enrollment process, ask questions, and meet the principal. Parents will also learn about Before/After School Care and Extended Care offered through a partnership with Johnson County Parks and Recreation Department. By Kansas statute, children must be the age of five (5) on or before August 31 to be eligible for Kindergarten enrollment.

FAQ: Can I bring my Kindergartner to Roundup? Yes, we encourage Kindergartners to attend Round-up.

What will you need?
Parents are encouraged to bring the following information to Kindergarten Round-Up:

  • Certified copy of child's birth certificate (required by Kansas statute)
  • Copy of immunization records (from pediatrician)
  • Proof of residency (copy of current utility bill, contract, etc.)

New Fundraiser for the Art Room!

For the past four years, we’ve teamed up with Artome during Fine Arts Night to present student artwork matted and framed. Our families have had the opportunity to purchase the framed artwork and the money made was used to supplement the art program. This year, however, we’re trying something new. There will be no artwork for sale during Fine Arts Night. Instead, students are creating artwork that can be printed onto greeting cards through My Cards. Your student will be coming home the first week of March with an envelope that holds the student’s design. Simply follow the four easy instructions on the envelope. There is no obligation to purchase the cards. Simply either mark the YES or NO box. If you decide to purchase, please enclose the payment when sending the envelope back to school. ALL ENVELOPES MUST BE RETURNED TO THE SCHOOL REGARDLESS IF YOU PURCHASE CARDS OR NOT. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Souders, art educator, at ssouders@usd232.org. Thanks in advance for your support.

Save the Date! Fine Arts Night Thursday, April 23, 5:00–7:00 pm

Mize’s 5th annual Fine Arts Night will be here before we know it! Students are already starting to prepare artwork and work on music. More information about the evening will be announced as we get closer to the date. One change for this year: there will be no framed artwork for sale this year. Information to come soon about a new art department fundraiser. Stay tuned! If you should have any questions about Fine Arts Night, please contact Mrs. Souders (ssouders@usd232.org) or Mrs. Taber (ktaber@usd232.org) .

Thank you for your time!

A BIG Thank You to all of our volunteers who help set up, tear down and took the time during the day to teach an organ to our students for the Body Venture Exhibit. Without you we could not have made it happen. Our Mizehawks thoroughly enjoyed learning what the body does and how it works. Take a look at the pictures below and check out the cool exhibit.

Thanks again,

Mr. Sullivan

Mize PE Teacher

Thank you PTO.. Ming Lee and the Magic Tree Play from JCCC

This children’s play is performed in traditional Chinese style and tells the story of a Prince who will be allowed to marry the Princess of the Stars, but only if he can find a happy man. In his search, the Prince gives Ming Lee, a stonecutter, a circle of wishes, each of which Ming Lee thinks will make him happy. But, during his journey, he discovers fine hats do not make a fine head. Over the course of his journey, Ming Lee finds what truly makes him happy.

Thank you to our Mize PTO for funding the play from Johnson County Community Center (JCCC). The actors and actress really captivated our Mizehawks! It was an amazing play!
