Principal's Message

Aside from a few make-ups, we have wrapped up our Kansas State Assessments! Students seemed to put forth their best effort and had the extra incentive of a testing buddy (stuffed eagle) by their side, thanks to our wonderful PTO! We should have results by mid-May and look forward to seeing the progress our students have made. Thank you, parents, for your continued support of their academic growth!

Please consider joining the Basehor community tomorrow for the Earth Day Community Clean Up! See details in the flyer below.

A message from DeeDee:

Monday is the last day to TURN IN SPRING PICTURES. If they are not returned, you will be charged from Strawbridge.

Also, this is the last call for YEARBOOKS. I have a few left and they can only be purchased by sending $15.00 cash to the office. Please DO NOT go on Skyward to try to reserve one. Thanks so much on both of these matters!
