Derner, Eckert, Kelly, PTO honored with awards

The Harrisonville School District recognized several year-end award winners at the district’s end-of-the-year ceremony on May 31.

Harrisonville Middle School Spanish teacher Maria Derner was named the Educator of the Year, Harrisonville High School accompanist Kathy Eckert was recognized as the Support Staff Employee of the Year, Cass Career Center Criminal Justice/CSI instructor Chandra Kelly was recognized with the Outstanding Community Involvement Award, and the Harrisonville PTO was named the Volunteer of the Year.

Derner has 29 years of teaching experience beginning with 15 years in Cali, Colombia. She has also taught in the Belton and Blue Valley School Districts. She has been at HMS for the past two years.

Derner was selected for the honor by a panel of judges from outside the community who interviewed five finalists. The finalists were chosen by the Harrisonville Public School Foundation and district administration selection committee from nominations received from parents, students, and Harrisonville Schools’ staff members.

Nominations for Derner said, “Mrs. Derner is the type of teacher that is always looking for new and innovative ways to engage and inspire her students, it is never about what is easiest for her it is always about what is best for her students. Mrs. Derner builds great relationships with her students first knowing that the mastery of her content will come after those basic needs are met. As a truly great teacher Mrs. Derner understands the power of creativity, wonder and laughter. She makes learning experiences full of engaging questions, wonder and discovery. She makes learning real.”

The Harrisonville Public School Foundation presented Derner with a $500 grant.

Eckert was also selected by a panel of outside judges from three finalists. She is in her 15th year in the district.

Her nominations cited the following.

“Kathy’s impact on students is hard to define because of the soft skills she teaches along with music. She is focused on building student relationships and is a true encourager. Kathy said it best when she said, ‘I GET to do my job’ - she chooses to be here because of the kids.”

Eckert received a $100 award from Sherwood Community Bank. In addition, she will be recognized with a plaque in the district office, and a banner at her school.

Chandra Kelly was recognized with the Outstanding Community Involvement Award sponsored by Community Bank of Harrisonville.

She received a $100 award from Community Bank, a plaque in the district office, and a banner at her school.

Kelly volunteers as the leader of the Police Explorers program with the Harrisonville Police Department. She also gave of her time to help the HHS softball team.

Finally, the Harrisonville PTO was honored as the district’s 2019 Volunteer of the Year. This year, PTO donated funds that have provided many opportunities including additional activities for field day, new playground equipment, movie licenses, and a rock wall. The group has coordinated volunteers to paint playgrounds, showed staff appreciation through treats and special recognition, and brought Shivers to field day.

The award winners were recognized during a ceremony on May 31. The ceremony also included the recognition of the district’s first year teachers and retirees by the Board of Education.

First year teachers celebrated

As the district closed out the 2018-19 school year, we took time to recognize our first year teachers. These teachers finished up their first year as, not only a member of the #WildcatFamily, but a member of the teaching profession.

As a special tribute, local photographers captured these teachers' personalities and we shared the photos on our Facebook page - - over the last few weeks. At our End-of-the-Year Celebration, the district presented the teachers framed copies of the photos and shared this video.

Special thanks to our volunteer photographers - Michael Legel, Royalones Photograhy LLC, Kaitlin Holloway, Bill N Lanagayle Kirkemo, Vanessa Zaroor Hargrave, and Arden Middaugh!

Second graders donate funds to The Moving Wall

Harrisonville Elementary School second graders in Mrs. Culpepper and Mrs. Holman’s classes learned both economics and charitable lessons through the annual Liberty Kids Store. The students raised nearly $2,000 for The Moving Wall which is coming to Harrisonville in late June.

The Liberty Kids Store featured patriotic products including pencils, dog tags, temporary tattoos, red, manicures, and much more. The store was open to students during school for two days. The students in Mrs. Culpepper and Mrs. Holman’s classes set up and manned the store - taking money, counting change, and answering shoppers’ questions.

The students donated the funds to The Moving Wall exhibit coming to Harrisonville June 27-July 1. “The Moving Wall” is the half-size replica of the National Vietnam Veterans Memorial located in Washington, D.C. Like the National Memorial, “The Moving Wall” honors the men and women who served and died in the Vietnam War and those who were listed as missing in action. The Moving Wall will be on display in the Mill-Walk Mall parking lot, 2601 Cantrell Road and is being coordinated by the American Legion.

Ed Roberts, Moving Wall volunteer, accepted the check from the students.

McEowen students raise money for Children's Mercy

Students at McEowen Elementary School made sure their hard work added up to something special for children in need.

The students participated in a math-a-thon in January and raised $6,003.47 for Children’s Mercy Hospital. The students collected pledges based on the number of problems completed in a math booklet.

Forty-four students who each raised over $100 had the opportunity to travel to Children’s Mercy Kansas to present the check on May 28.

During the visit to the hospital, the student talked with the Children’s Mercy Transportation Team and toured the inside of their special ambulances. They also met Hope, one of the hospital’s therapy dogs.

The students rode to the hospital on Big Blue thanks to the generosity of the Harrisonville Athletic Booster Club.

The funds raised are designated for the Child Life program at Children’s Mercy in memory of Cade Filer. Child Life’s purpose is to help the children who are spending time at CMH continue to be children. Child Life also provides education for both the child and family to help them feel more at ease with medical procedures.

Over the last nine years, McEowen students have raised over $40,000 for Children’s Mercy Hospital.

Students making the trip to CMH were Kiersten Wilson, Jocelyn Courter, Klyde Webb, Brody McNeal, Chloe Herrell, Emma Allee, Anna Tews, Bethany Sharp, Austin Knight, Quinn Julien, Gatlin Osterberg, Jacob Bellamy, Emma James, Destiny Warren, Nicholas Kirkemo, Maddie Eggers, Kaylyn Davis, Carter Cole, Levi Vanover, Chloe Edwards, Clair Marrow, Alivia Bullock, Sophia Branham, Preslee Morris, Lyra Johnson, Abby Coffey, Keller Johnson, Madi Mitchell, Kiara Shaw, Darby Getz, Tucker Snook, Logan Boyle, Lilly Jacobs, Justin Skyles, Austin Eng, Ethan Hiser, Elizabeth Pruitt, Corbin Ryberg, Ayden Cunningham, Zaylee Lindsey, Brayden Johnson, Amy Tabor-Diaz, Dyllan Hembree, Isaac Lake, and Mary Arthur.
