Major Saver Campaign Begins This Week!

Major Saver packets will come home with your student this week!

Major Saver cards can be purchased via cash, check or online at The online sale can be credited back to a particular student and school. All cards purchased online will be mailed directly to the customer. The extra nice thing about purchasing the cards online is that you can buy cards for the Olathe or Blue Valley Districts...this gives you more options for different restaurant offers around the metro area.

Major Saver is excited to roll out a new feature this year making online sales easier for friends and family! On the major saver homepage, you are able to enter your student’s information to create a CUSTOM LINK for your child that can be shared via social media or email. This link will automatically credit the online sale to your student when friends and family use the link to make their purchase!

One last thing...there is a Pizza Hut offer on the Gardner card that is not valid any longer due to our local restaurant discontinuing their buffet. Their offer is now "buy one large pizza @ regular menu price and get a medium 1-topping pizza FREE".

The proceeds from the Major Saver fundraiser directly benefits Sunflower!

Sunflower Site Council Meetings 2018-2019

The Sunflower Site Council will be meeting at 6 pm in the library on the following dates: 9/11/18, 11/13/18, 2/28/19, 4/9/19.

All meetings are open to the public.

Kansas schools are required to establish site councils composed of the principal, teachers and other school personnel, parents, business representatives, and other community groups.

Site councils have a responsibility to provide advice and counsel in the following areas: evaluating district and school performance goals and objectives,

determining methods to meet those goals and objectives,

and other areas as requested by the board of education.

Remember, the work of the site council is advisory only;

it makes recommendations, not decisions.
