Join our homecoming float on Thursday, September 21. The theme this year is "CHILDREN'S MOVIES". Students that want to be in the parade with us will need to be dropped off at Holy Angels Parking Lot at 5:30 pm. Please make sure that they use the restroom prior to being dropped off. Students may dress in school appropriate costume as their favorite children's movie character or in Gray Hawk spirit wear.

Please send a bag of candy with your child that evening to throw out along the parade route.

Parents will pick up their child in the BLHS parking lot after the parade. We will release students off the float to parents or guardians only. Students may go with another adult but we must have a note ahead of time detailing who they have permission to go with.

To donate extra bags of candy for the parade route, please click here! Thank you!

BLAS Food for Kids Backpack Program

Basehor-Linwood Assistance Services (BLAS) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing a variety of emergency services for residents of the Basehor-Linwood school district. These services may include utility payments, food, school supplies, and holiday assistance. All requests are confidential. Those needing assistance may call the BLAS at (913) 406-9856 and leave a message. The BLAS coordinator will return your call.

The BLAS Food for Kids Backpack Program is available once again this year. The Backpack program provides a weekly bag filled with food for elementary aged school children that are in need. BLAS delivers the bags each week to GRAY HAWK and then OUR counselor Miss Hubbard distributes the bags on Friday. This program is fully-funded through community donations and the number of participants is limited based on the donations received. There is no cost to participate in the program.

If your child is in need of this service, please reach out to Miss Hubbard at


Video series for Teachers and the Community

I have been working with Dr. Perry's Neurosequential Model in Education for nearly a year now. Dr. Perry is a leading expert in understanding the brain and ways to support both children and adults in understanding self-regulation and why we may respond to certain events in a certain way. I am sharing these videos with OUR STAFF but also believe it is crucial for OUR COMMUNITY to be able to access these as well. Unfortunately the videos are not able to be embedded into the NEST, so please click on the picture below and watch Episode 2 : Creating a Safe Environment on YouTube.

Help Raise Funds by Volunteering at HS Concessions

Please check out the Sign Up Genius below if you are able to help out one day at the high school for the concession stand. It goes by very quickly and is a great community builder.

Working the concession at BLHS is so much fun!!! You take orders, make popcorn/hotdogs/nachos and keep things stocked. Very easy and simple but we can't do it without volunteers!

We will meet at the outside football concession stand at the high school.

Please call or text Abby Miller-Frecks at 913-238-5829 with any questions.

Right now we are looking for volunteers on Monday, September 18 and Monday, October 23. Thank you for your consideration.
