MTMS at KU's Engineering Expo

Students from Monticello Trails’ math and Voyager classes participated in KU’s Engineering Expo this week. Much excitement and interest in the fields of math, science, and engineering were explored as they participated in design competitions, examined engineering organization displays, heard from an industry professional about engineering in the real world, and dove into interactive demonstrations.

Many students spent approximately two months prior to the competition researching, creating and refining projects for the competitions, which included Rube Goldbergs, Volcanoes, Pasta Bridges, Bottle Rockets, and more.

Vaccination requirements are changing for the 2019-2020 school year!

According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, the new requirement states:

Meningococcal (Serogroup A,C,W,Y): Two doses required. Doses should be given at entry to 7th grade (11-12 years) and 11th grade (16-18 years).


6th grade parents: Since this is a new vaccination requirement, ALL students currently in 6th grade will need to provide proof of one dose of meningococcal vaccine to start 7th grade in the fall of 2019. The second dose will need to be administered before your student starts 11th grade. This vaccine helps protect your student against bacterial meningitis.

Your shot record might say MCV, MCV4, MCV40, MCV4P, Meneveo or Menactra. All of these will meet the new requirement.

In addition, ALL incoming 7th grade students need to have a Tdap (tetanus, dipertheria, and pertussis) booster shot.

Vaccinations can be obtained at your child’s doctor’s office, most pharmacies (like CVS and Walgreens) as well as the Johnson County Health Department.


If your student has already had these vaccines or when your student receives these vaccinations, please send the records to your nurse ASAP. You can send records to school with student, mail, e-mail or fax records to the address listed below.


If you have any questions, please contact Theresa Koeckeritz, MTMS School Nurse.


Thank you,
