National Bike to School Day is Wednesday, May 8, 2019. Weather permitting, we will be holding our annual ride through our neighborhood (time to be determined later). For students to participate they need a bicycle at school that day. HELMETS ARE REQUIRED TO RIDE!!

Pssst....Be on the lookout for some exciting information on how your child might win a bicycle. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Weaver (Physical Education Teacher) at michele_weaver@usd368.org or school number 913-294-8040.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!! Field Day is scheduled for Friday, May 9, 2019 (rain date is Monday, May 20). We hope you might consider taking the day off from work :) and volunteering to help us with our afternoon activities down at the High School Track. Our afternoon activities start promptly at 12:00, but we will need your assistance starting around 11:30 to help change things out from Cottonwood's activities and for you to find out how to run your station or activity. Please be on the lookout for more information on how to volunteer. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Weaver (Physical Education Teacher) at michele_weaver@usd368.org or school number 913-294-8040.
